Alltrade has announced a UK distribution deal with HDL, a global leader in residential and commercial automation products. The move sees HDL’s portfolio of Smart Home products handled exclusively in the UK by Alltrade and benefiting from the company’s trade counters, nationwide delivery service, training days and customer support.
HDL’s Smart Home products encompass advanced lighting control with programmable LCD wall plates, heating stats and automated blinds, multiroom audio, access control and a wide range of sensors. Based on HDL’s Buspro, the system can be managed and controlled by smart phone and tablet using Demopad, also distributed by Alltrade.
Alltrade managing director Steve Simper commented: “This exciting development gives Alltrade customers a range of products that offer a complete smart home solution without the need for multiple brands and the associated compatibility issues. Using the open architecture Buspro protocol and easy to program software app from Demopad with cloud server technology, the HDL product line up is truly cutting edge yet very easy to plan and install.”
At the recent Essential Install Live! Tradeshow, HDL displayed a comprehensive range of Buspro modules, environmental sensors and its LCD wall plates. Designed to fit in a typical single gang lighting patress, the wall controllers range from single button models to 10-button designs with multiple LCD screen ‘pages’ that can be individually programmed to the end-user’s system and requirements.
HDL commercial director Lee Brynes said: “We’re very pleased about our new partnership with Alltrade, who are already leaders in their field. We’re confident that Alltrade will continue to maintain the levels of service and support that both Alltrade and HDL customers have come to expect from these class-leading companies.”
Open days and training sessions at Alltrade’s five trade counters are due to be announced soon, with product support and stock availability from July 1.
