Insights from Our Experience as Smart Home Dealers
Our journey as dealers in the smart home industry and how it has influenced our business practices and offerings.
OUR OWN EXPERIENCE AS DEALERS
Our journey begins with 15 years of experience as smart home dealers where we became one of the largest C4 dealers in Canada and in the world. These many years of working on various smart home projects have allowed us to develop an expertise in the industry. It also allowed us to make key discoveries concerning shades and motorized shades in particular!
Through these many projects, we understood that the most profitable projects were (and still are) the ones that include shades. This is down to many factors, for example, the fact that shades account for the least tech support of all home automation services. In fact, we discovered that you can double your opportunities and sales with Motorized shades!
Another factor to take into account is the fact that a new regulation concerning corded chains is coming soon, boosting the opportunities for Motorized shades even further! This new regulation is committed to providing consumer products that are safe, and to protect children from potential harm. You can read more about this in our article here.
It is for these reasons that we have doubled down on smart shades with Clara. We know the potential and the opportunities that these smart, motorized shades have in the smart home world!
