Since launching SmartSecure in 2016, Carl F Groupco has reported sales revenue increases of just under 90% year on year for its electronic door locking and access control brand.
The company said that early adopters of its Smart technology include the fabrication market and housing associations who recognise benefits across different access control applications, the sophistication of the technology, and its simplicity of configuration that enables easy integration.
Carl F Groupco’s managing director John Crittenden said: “In just two years since the launch of SmartSecure, we have seen a significant shift in perception of electronic locking and Smart access control. As we adopt Smart technology in other areas of our homes with lights, heating and cameras, Smart door locks are becoming increasingly accessible.”
As a forerunner of the Smart locking and access control evolution in the UK’s hardware market, Carl F Groupco has continued to invest heavily in SmartSecure, including designing a dedicated showroom. In addition to solutions based on Fuhr’s fully motorised multipoint lock with automatic locking, the range was increased earlier this year to include Yale’s Conexis L1 retro-fit Smart keyless locking handle.
