VELUX® is honoured to have been awarded “Best Services Product” at this year’s Housebuilder Product Awards for its smart home technology product, VELUX ACTIVE.
The “Best Services Product” category aims to recognise the impact products have on the health and well-being of homeowners, and also looks at market potential and the benefits the product can offer house builders.
The roof window manufacturer launched the product less than a year ago, in collaboration with the French tech company, NETATMO. VELUX ACTIVE is the company’s first venture into the smart home market, aimed at improving indoor air quality.
The intelligent roof windows system constantly monitors the homes’ air quality by measuring temperature, humidity and CO2 levels, and regulates this by automatically operating roof windows and blinds according to the information it receives.
Connecting to the VELUX ACTIVE app, VELUX INTEGRA® electric roof windows, blinds and shutters can be controlled from anywhere using your smartphone.
Grant Sneddon, product manager and daylight expert at VELUX, comments on the award: “It’s a huge achievement to pick up the Housebuilder Product award. Being recognised for the first smart home product we have taken to the market is a major milestone for us and something that is really encouraging for future innovation.
“Our success at the Housebuilder Product Awards gives us a fantastic platform to promote VELUX ACTIVE, while securing our place as finalists in the product category of the Housebuilder Awards later in the year.”
