Warm up to a smarter home

Be part of the next generation of temperature control. Intelligently designed to heat your home just how you like it, smart heating is an energy and cost saving solution.

You can say goodbye to rising energy bills and rigid set temperatures with the latest in smart heating technology.

The popularity of smart heating shows no sign of slowing, and the yearly rate of adoption is expected to reach one million by 2020

Temperature adjustments are easier than ever with smart device control and voice operation available across a number of products. All smart heating technology delivers lower energy usage, a must have for all heating devices since the introduction of Lot 20 – the EU’s new measure to reduce the energy used by products that heat our homes.

A number of products also include geolocation, letting you switch the heating on when you’re on your way home so it’s the correct temperature when you arrive. These features let you keep your home warm without wasting energy while no one is at home.

TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENTS ARE EASIER THAN EVER WITH SMART DEVICE CONTROL AND VOICE OPERATION IS AVAILABLE ON CERTAIN PRODUCTS

Maintaining the right temperature for everyone in a busy household can be challenging, but some smart heating products cleverly adapt to where they are placed in the house, learning household behaviours to heat up or cool down in particular rooms or at certain times of the day – perfect for domestic and small commercial projects.

Although some products are easy to install, professional fitting is recommended as installation may require attaching to existing electrical wiring, mounting on a wall, testing functionality and connecting to Wi-Fi.

Stay safe with a smarter home

Smart security solutions offer an extra level of protection and peace of mind over traditional home security systems

Gone are the days where sticking a phony security camera outside a building was thought to be enough of a deterrent to thieves.

Today, homeowners and businesses alike are taking their security measures seriously. This is partly due to the great range of simple to use, easy to install and, let’s face it, nicer to look at products on offer.

There is now a huge range of security products that don’t call for complicated, disruptive wiring, and can stream footage directly to a mobile app. There’s no need for a ‘security station’ inside the house when there’s a perfectly good screen in your pocket.

37% OF CONSUMERS SEE SECURITY AS THE BIGGEST BENEFIT OF SMART HOME TECHNOLOGY

Door locks, too, are moving on from the traditional lock and key to voice, fingerprint or app control – and with a huge range of products that are professional install only, smart security is an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed.

Unlike older security systems, most smart security systems don’t require monitoring fees, subscriptions or security stations at home – they stream straight to mobile devices, making them more accessible for domestic projects and a great ‘up sell’ when working on extensions or high-end refurbishments.

Switch on to a smarter home

Use smart electrical devices to power and control your home and bring home automation to life.

Whether you’re looking for a bolt-on or an integrated solution, CEF’s range of smart electrical devices give you the option to choose the right level of automation to suit your home and budget.

Looking to start small? Why not begin with a smart plug? Quick and easy to install, they are a simple way to introduce smart technology into the home. For a more streamlined look, there are a selection of smart sockets in a variety of finishes, several of which include a lockable feature and energy monitoring.

Lighting control can be achieved via either a dimmer module or state of the art dimmer switches that work with voice-controlled home assistants and include energy monitoring.

These intelligent dimmers are small, but mighty – you can set lighting scenes to create the perfect atmosphere for whatever you’re doing. Clever automations let you have a gentle morning wake-up or a comfortable welcome home.

SMART ELECTRICAL DEVICES ARE AN EASY WAY TO BRING HOME AUTOMATION TO LIFE – EITHER AS STANDALONE PRODUCTS OR AS PART OF A MORE INTEGRATED SOLUTION

And if you want a more integrated solution we have a selection of smart starter kits that come with everything you need to control your lamps, appliances and lighting via a single integrated hub and app.

Our smart electricals don’t just do the job, they look the part too, with sleek, slim and modern designs to suit any décor. A number of these stylish and compact products are equipped with energy monitoring to help you keep track and save on energy and money.

Most smart electrical devices in this section are compatible with traditional wiring, but professional installation is essential for safe retrofitting to existing circuits and for installation in new premises.

Light up with a smarter home

Lighting design for impact and effect is common place in commercial environments and the introduction of smart, connected lamps and luminaires is set to revolutionise how lighting is installed and used in domestic properties.

From retrofit connected lamps to smart luminaires, smart lighting can deliver infinite control of colour and light levels to suit every situation. And let’s not forget the added security that programmed on / off periods and remote switching also deliver.

It’s a competitive space, with a multitude of products claiming to be the most reliable, energy efficient and easy to use on the market. But as with LED lighting in general, not all smart lighting products are created equal.

SMART LIGHTING OFFERS COMPLETE CONTROL OVER THE LOOK AND FEEL OF A HOME, WITH LIGHTING SOLUTIONS THAT CAN EASILY BE PERSONALISED FROM A MOBILE DEVICE

In this section, you’ll find a variety of smart lighting products that offer complete control over the look and feel of a home – that can be personalised using a smart device and many of which require professional installation. So next time you are asked to quote some downlights for a kitchen extension, why not offer the homeowner an option that includes smart lighting?
