Author: HaydenFrom: smanosDate: 2018-02-09

Amsterdam – Feb 7, 2018 – smanos, a trendsetting innovator and dynamic developer of wireless smart home and DIY security systems, is excited to be back at DISTREE EMEA in Monte Carlo between February 7 and 8, and is proudly presenting its latest smart home security portfolio, with demos of the K1 system and latest smart video doorbell. The complete smanos smart home portfolio speaks minimalistic elegance, self-installation and self-monitoring, and is available at G3 at Fairmont Monte Carlo throughout the 2 days.

“We want to demonstrate to our existing distributors and potential retail partners that we are truly committed to wireless smart home innovation and looking forward to growing the EMEA region with them, with an even more easy-to-use, powerful and competitive solution lineup,” said Oliver Tseng, Sales Director of Europe. “Our smart and sleek-looking products sell themselves. The dedicated smanos team is with our channel partners every step of the way and throughout the product lifecycle, to ensure DIY simplicity and system affordability can be palpated and realized in hardware/software engineering, sales and marketing, and distribution and installation. Our local European team is ready to serve and listen to what’s demanded in the region, so that our partners can get regular updates and category expansions.”

The K1, the ultimate home automation and security center, is smanos’s smart home gateway, combining butler- and guard-like functions into a stack of esthetically pleasing round discs. “A few cool features have been added to the K1 system, the most noticeable of which is Works with the Google® Assistant,” said Johann Toldo, Country Manager of France and the UK. “For us, it was very easy to adjust our app and cloud infrastructure. Integrating with the Google Assistant has enabled us to better serve our users across multiple languages. Instead of being limited on a single device at home, we can meet our users where they are – on the phone, in the office, in the car, while watching TV – enabling them to interact with our products not just by voice but also by typing and tapping.” The newly enhanced Red Dot Product Design and Computex d&i Gold Award winner K1 kit is also compatible with Amazon® Alexa, Nest® thermostats and Hue® lights, and is available worldwide at an MSRP of Euro 270.

Also available separately or as additional accessories to the K1 system are the UFO Panoramic WiFi HD Camera and Smart Video Doorbell, with MSRP’s of Euro 180 and 190, respectively.

“smanos is fast-expanding at a great momentum, with all its partners across the world,” said Hayden Hsu, Senior VP of Strategy and Marketing. “We will deepen our foothold in the smart home and DIY security sector, and stay in sync with technological developments and market demands arising from Internet-of-Everything/Anything applications, with multiple R&D, design, logistics and service centers throughout Europe, Asia and the US.” Having established a great rapport with consumer electronics and building materials distributors and resellers across the world, Hsu added, “we understand what it takes to achieve win-win for our channel and retail partners. Cross-competition should be of no concern as we only appoint a select few partners in each market and do everything we can to help them achieve their P&L goals.” smanos is a global smart home technology enabler with local team members, always endeavoring to bring the latest, most reliable innovations to market in a timely and affordable manner.
