Exertis has scaled up its smart home drive with a host of new devices.
The distributor has bolstered its current Smart Tech product portfolio with a range of smart thermostats, security devices and a Bluetooth tracker.
Exertis has previously expressed confidence at its position in the smart home market, stating at the close of 2015 that its ‘exclusive’ relationships within the space will be enough to give its resellers the advantage. Exertis will now look to scale up its services, revealing plans to extend its product range and move into energy control and system automation.
The distributor’s focus on the connected home follows on from the launch of rival Brightstar’s Smart Living service to deliver ‘unique support services’ alongside smart products.
Exertis’ head of Smart Technology Rod Slater explained that the company has targeted a range of different areas within the connected space to give its reseller a greater degree of flexibility.
He said: ‘We have built the strongest line-up of market leading vendors, some of which are exclusive to Exertis, in the smart technology category across sectors that are creating consumer and business demand.
‘Our portfolio in security, environmental control, system automation, home entertainment and wearables provides resellers and retailers with a wide choice of incredibly innovative, high quality products.
‘It appeals to both the retail sector and to resellers selling into business fuelled by the ubiquitous use of smartphones and leveraging the opportunities presented by IoT technologies.’
