Soap Star Opens Avensys Smart Home Retail Concept

Soap Star Opens Avensys Smart Home Retail Concept

Award winning, Avensys Ltd have officially launched their concept Smart Home at their retail store on Fleming Way, Crawley. The Actor (and Avensys Customer) Shane Richie cut the ribbon and welcomed specially invited guests to tour the latest addition to the retail showroom.  The Avensys Smart Home is now open to the public.

Avensys have built the Smart Home to meet the changing needs and desires of customers to have the latest connected technology in their homes.  The Smart Home presents the technology in an interactive, real home setting. From a luxury lounge and dining room, beautifully designed kitchen, a cool bar area, a relaxing bathroom, a snug and study; to an amazing home cinema which would meet the needs of the most demanding A-list star. 

Avensys believe that a Smart Home should make your life simpler, not more complicated.  Customers can see how you can bring together heating, lighting, and security, internet and entertainment products, all from one control unit or App. Our specialist team will be on hand to explain the products and technology, helping people cut through the jargon and realise the concept in their own homes.

The Avensys team has always been at the forefront of bringing new technology to consumers via an independent channel.  The Smart Home is an extension of the current retail store and will be used for events and functions, alongside one to one demos for customers to explore the products, first hand.

Markus Wood, MD said ‘Our Smart Home has been in development over many months and through tremendous hard work from our team and an investment of over £1m in retail terms, we are able to open the Avensys Smart Home.  We recognised that the way consumers shop for home appliances and audio visual products is changing and we expect growth in the Smart Home market of 450% over the next 4 years. We think we’re in a great position to help people understand the concept of connected homes and how it can work for them.  Our new Smart Home, along with our fantastic superstore creates a different shopping experience for customers and offer an important alternative to the National Retailers, both in terms of price, choice and added value service. “

The Smart Home space is one of the largest in the UK with over 4000 square ft dedicated to the Smart Home, including a training centre and meeting space, equipped with the latest Audio Visual technology designed and built by our Avensys Commercial team.
