The new tado° products for intelligent heating are the first IoT devices in a wide range of products in the new Smart Home category.
Focus on the Smart Home business is part of EET Europarts´ growth strategy for the coming years. A new partnership and Nordic distribution agreement with German tado°, European market leader in intelligent home climate control solutions, is already in place and more distribution agreements are in the pipeline.
"The Internet of Things is set to disrupt the way we live. Lots of smart home IoT devices have already hit the market and made their way into thousands of households around the world", says Group CEO John Thomas, EET Group. "tado° is a European market leader in intelligent home climate control solutions, and the partnership and distribution agreement with tado° will provide us the perfect launch pad to build the Smart Home category with additional products. Smart heating control devices are vital for the Smart Home category, since smart thermostats are currently one of the most important technologies within the smart home that generates measurable value of savings and comfort. Therefore we are excited to enter the Smart Home business alongside tado°, and we believe our dealers and customers in the installation business will really benefit from this."
The agreement includes distribution rights for the complete tado° product portfolio in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland, and the first products are ready to be launched.
tado° products connect old and new heating systems to the internet with Smart Thermostats for the benefit of residents, resulting in better control, comfort and up to 31 per cent energy savings. The new Smart Radiator Thermostats extend tado°s technology into homes that do not have their own central heating system and to those who would like multi-zone and individual radiator control. It is also the only radiator thermostat on the market that can use geolocation-based control and automation. The tado° third generation (v3) with expanded platform connectivity makes tado° attractive for different user groups. One example of this is Alexa (Amazon Echo) making voice-controlled heating a reality. Another feature gives users the ability to customise home scenarios through IFTTT and Echo.
“Smart heating has emerged as an integral part of any connected home and we’re delighted to partner with EET Europarts to offer Europe’s leading smart thermostat portfolio to Scandinavia,” announces tado° CEO Christian Deilmann. “EET Europarts has a great track record of introducing pioneering technology to the Nordic market and we’re confident that the proven savings, comfort and convenience that tado° provides will be warmly embraced by consumers."
