It’s less than two months to go now until this year’s FIT Show, and I’m really pleased to announce that Mila will be going!
This will be very different to our previous FIT Show experiences though because we are showcasing just one new product on our stand in partnership with Mighton. It’s a brand new smart lock called Avia which we think brings something pretty special to this marketplace.
There’s already a real buzz around the smart technology which various people are bringing to FIT, and I know there will be lots of fabricators and installers out there who are coming to the show specifically to look at getting a solution in place for their businesses.
Having done plenty of research of our own on what the market needs and the options available, we’re very confident that Avia is the best solution for our customers.
Avia has a whole string of USPs – most obviously that it uses the most advanced, high security software from Apple so is fully compatible with Apple HomeKit and can be easily controlled via the Home app on any Apple device.
Unlike most other smart lock products, it’s also designed to be fitted on the inside of the door, so there’s no absolutely no risk of tampering or attacks by opportunist burglars. All you can see from the outside is a conventional Mila ProSecure door handle – Kitemarked, fully tested to PAS24 and etched with the Secured by Design logo, and of course homeowners get the old fashioned reassurance of a traditional key.
And, significantly for many, Avia can be retrofitted really quickly and easily, giving fabricators and installers a great chance to revisit previous projects and generate new business
The smart home revolution is well underway in the UK now and there’s a whole generation of consumers who have shown that they can’t get enough of this kind of technology.
Certainly, it looks set to be the biggest news at FIT and we’re really excited to be right at the heart of that. We’re looking forward to seeing as many customers there as possible.
