VELUX Active recognised for smart home innovation

Published:  18 April, 2019

Roof window manufacturer VELUX® has been awarded Best Services Product at this year’s Housebuilder Product Awards for its smart home technology product, VELUX ACTIVE.

Recognising the impact products have on the health and well-being of homeowners, the Best Services Product category also looks at market potential and the benefits the product can offer house builders.

Launched less than a year ago in collaboration with esteemed French tech company NETATMO, VELUX ACTIVE marked the company’s first venture into the smart home market.

With the aim of improving indoor air quality, the intelligent roof windows system constantly monitors the homes’ air quality by measuring temperature, humidity and CO2 levels, and regulates this by automatically operating roof windows and blinds according to the information it receives.

Connecting to the VELUX ACTIVE app, VELUX INTEGRA® electric roof windows, blinds and shutters can be controlled from anywhere using a smartphone.

Grant Sneddon, Product Manager and Daylight Expert at VELUX, said: “It’s a huge achievement to pick up the Housebuilder Product award.

“Being recognised for the first smart home product we have taken to the market is a major milestone for us and something that is really encouraging for future innovation.

“Our success at the Housebuilder Product Awards gives us a fantastic platform to promote VELUX ACTIVE, while securing our place as finalists in the product category of the Housebuilder Awards later in the year.”
