Smart Home Integration
Evolving smart home systems technology can include network, WiFi, surveillance and security; audio visual, lighting and lighting control; heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) control, building management systems (BMS) and home automation. As smart home technology evolves, our client’s projects vary enormously, and can involve anything from the refurbishment of technically complex high end residential and multi-dwelling (MDU) properties, to exclusive large-scale or boutique hospitality interiors.
Focus SB’s extensive plate style collections are manufactured and finished in-house, making it easy for systems integrators and electrical contractors to organise samples of special finish requirements to present to clients, and to discuss non-standard bespoke lighting and blind control plates. Our retractive (momentary action) range of toggle, push button and rocker switches can be used with electronic curtain, blind, shutter and window operating systems offered by most other controls manufacturers including Lutron and Rako via an interface or custom made plates. We also manufacture cover plates suitable for Daikin HVAC controls.
Our double throw centre off retractive toggle switch (launched 2017) is available in a traditional toggle style or sleek contemporary alternative. Discover our Contemporary toggle, available as standard in True Edge.
Focus SB partners and develops products with major home technology system integrators to provide seamless finish details throughout your interiors project. Our unrivalled in house finishing service enables home owners, architects, interior designers or building contractors to seamlessly match finishes across countless electrical accessory options from window shading to home cinema control systems.
"If we are to have a successful, long-term relationship with another company then we have to trust each other. This trust goes beyond the normal day to day transaction of buying or selling services. It should be a trust that when something goes wrong or when something urgent comes up, we can trust them to help pull off the seemingly impossible. We have been very fortunate to have built up a number of these sorts of relationships over the last 34 years, Focus SB is one of them." Chris Jones, managing director Ideaworks.
We also manufacture metal covers for the Wise Controls Wireless Intense Switch range to match our standard finishes, and our ‘Focus Solo Dimming’ uses Wise Scene remote dimmer packs. Discover more about Wise Controls, or contact us regards your interiors project or OEM business proposal.
