Exertis, a distributor of IT products for the B2B, mobile and retail markets, reports a distribution agreement with Yale, the locks and home security product manufacturer, including its Smart Living range of door locks, alarms, and CCTV.
Rod Slater, Exertis head of smart tech and IoT, said: “Security devices continue to be a key driver for growth in the ‘smart technology’ category and Yale is a trusted brand that complements our market leading range of products. Users have the capability to secure and check their home from anywhere, and the convenience of granting access to known individuals – all via their smartphone and the Yale app.”
The Yale Smart Living range is available as standalone products or can be part of a home security system – a home alarm, home view camera and CCTV with built-in night vision infrared LEDs. Yale door locks can also integrate with other home systems and some are compatible with the Alexa voice assistant, to control the door lock. The new Conexis L1 Smart Door Lock allows users to unlock their front door by twisting their phone 90 degrees via its “Twist-and-Go” Bluetooth app.
The Keyless Connected Smart Lock was named DIY Week’s best security product of the year 2016, enabling users to open doors in a variety of ways, including a PIN code, remote fob or smartphone. The EF Yale alarm series provides options for a smoke detector, passive infra-red (PIR) motion detector and door and window contacts. Yale’s Home View cameras offer pan, tilt and zoom, link wirelessly to an internet connection and have options for motion detection and two-way audio. The CCTV system enables users to view footage using a smartphone, tablet or PC.
Tabitha Morton,Head of Integration for Yale said: “Exertis has established itself as the leading distributor for Smart Tech products and has strong relationships with a wide variety of retailers and installers. They have also demonstrated an innovative go-to-market strategy that has helped retailers to better address consumers and devised new routes to market for manufacturers. We look forward to working with their team at a time when, many analysts believe, the market is expected to grow significantly over the next few years.”
