Building smarter homes with keyliteConnect®
UK based manufacturer of roof windows, Keylite Roof Windows (Keylite), has launched its new range of smart roof windows, blinds and technology, allowing homeowners to control daylight and ventilation in their home via smart devices.
The new keyliteConnect® product range aims to transform the way we experience natural light and ventilation in our homes by utilising smart home technology.
With the keyliteConnect® app and keyliteConnect® hub, homeowners are able to monitor and engage with their smart app-enabled Electric and Solar Roof Windows and Blinds from anywhere in the world. This allows users to operate one or multiple applications at once, set pre-timed actions such as airing the building for a certain duration, or automatically lower blinds in the evening.
To provide peace of mind for those days where you just can’t predict the weather, the smart rain sensor will automatically close windows in the event of a downpour, even when homeowners are away. If you leave home and forget to close your windows, one tap of a button closes all your windows on the keyliteConnect® app
By switching roof windows to the trickle ventilation position, fresh air is able to enter the property while ensuring the building’s safety is not compromised, as windows remain in the fully locked position.
The keyliteConnect® app enabled Solar Powered Roof Windows and Blinds are powered completely by solar energy, with no requirement for mains electricity. Harvesting solar energy, the roof windows retain power in the window’s battery system, enabling operation day and night.
Installation of the technology is made as easy as possible for end-users. The straight-forward set-up procedure within the app allows homeowners to pair windows and create personalised settings for each room or individual person’s operational needs. The The keyliteConnect® hub can be purchased after the installation of an app-enabled Keylite Electric or Solar Roof Window making it an ideal product for a smarter home.
The keyliteConnect® hub is the heart to controlling the app-enabled Keylite Electric and Solar Roof Windows and Blinds. Once connected to Wi-Fi, the hub ensures only those chosen can operate the applications remotely via the keyliteConnect® app.
Colin Wells, Head of Technical at Keylite Roof Windows, comments: “The keyliteConnect® product range and technology gives homeowners total control over their Roof Windows and Blinds – controlling as and when their property needs daylight and natural ventilation, and providing peace of mind that their property is secured whilst they’re away.
“Natural light, fresh air and the right temperature is vital for the wellbeing and comfort of a home and those who live in it. Ensuring a property always has the right balance of each is sure to create a healthy and comfortable living environment.
“With over 15 million ‘smart homes’ in the UK and Ireland , it’s clear that the need and desire for smart technology is prevalent amongst homeowners. By installing Keylite Roof Windows into homes at the development stage, this can provide a strong selling point for housebuilders across the country.”
