Leading uPVC and aluminium trade fabricator Dekko Window Systems has launched a new video to help its customers sell Kubu smart doors to UK homeowners, helping them get ahead of the competition.
Available exclusively to Dekko customers, the video features Instagram influencer Katrina @greygoosehouse, who, with over 109K followers, is highly influential on social media on topics such as interior design and home improvements.
In the video, Katrina discusses her recent decision to upgrade her home with a new Kubu-equipped composite door from Dekko.
“Thanks to Kubu, I now know when my front door is locked or unlocked through notifications on a smartphone app. I’m also notified when my children have left and returned home,” she says.
“The Kubu smart lock also blends in perfectly with the aesthetic of my home, unlike other door hardware which can often be bulky and unsightly. I’m thrilled with this new investment.”
Dekko was one of the launch partners for Kubu – the Smart-Equipped Lock from Avantis Hardware – and since 2019, it has come as a standard feature on all their PVC and composite entrance doors.
Kubu Smart hardware can be incorporated into the design of almost any Dekko entrance door – a smart sensor is attached to the door, which is then linked to the homeowner’s smartphone. The homeowner can then check the status of the door at any time, from any location.
Once the Kubu-equipped door is installed, customers can purchase a Home Hub from the Kubu website. They can then connect this to their home wi-fi, download the Kubu app to their smartphone, and fit the Kubu door module into their equipped door lock.
A sensor inside the Kubu door module is then activated every time the door is locked or unlocked. The activation sends a signal to the user’s smartphone, alerting them of the door activity.
Fitting Kubu-equipped doors doesn’t require any extra installation time – simply fit the door as normal, as the Kubu door lock is supplied ready to be activated.
In addition, once set up, installers won’t have to worry about it again – with a dedicated Kubu support team to answer questions, they won’t have to take on any technical queries from customers.
Dekko Sales Director Kurt Greatrex comments: “Popularity of smart home technology is growing rapidly, and so being able to offer homeowners the very latest in smart security undoubtedly helps installers get ahead of the competition.
“We are delighted that Katrina is happy with her investment, and with such a powerful influence on social media, I have no doubt that her presence in our new testimonial video will help our customers sell more Kubu-equipped smart doors to the end user.
“In addition to the video, we also offer our customers a full suite of marketing support through our Make it Yours package, providing brochures, leaflets, banners and showroom support, ensuring they increase enquiries and get their brand noticed.
