Installer initiative

Kubu has launched its new Pro Installer initiative, as the brand looks to engage in the wider and opportunistic smart home market.

Kubu Pro Installers will benefit from a wide range of updated marketing and point of sale materials for showrooms, along with a free listing at the newly re-vamped website at This new initiative will also see the provision of Kubu Kits at trade prices which will help open up further opportunities for installers, the company said.

Once purchased, the Kubu Kits can be sold with a mark-up, while some other businesses are already using it as a means to close a bigger deal.

With the new window sensor soon to be launched, sales of Kubu-equipped door and windows will form part of the wider smart home market, as a complete and integrated solution including bifolding, French and patio doors, the company said.

Lauren Bromley, head of brand for Kubu, said: “The Pro Installer initiative is free to partners and provides considerable sales opportunities for installers. The statistics clearly show that consumers are consuming smart-tech in their droves and the success of Amazon’s Ring and Google Nest bear testament to this.”
