Smart Home Integration
Evolving smart home systems technology can include network, WiFi, surveillance and security; audio visual, lighting and shading control; heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) control, building management systems (BMS) and home automation. As technology evolves our clients’ projects vary enormously and can involve anything from high end new builds to the refurbishment of technically complex residential and multi-dwelling (MDU) properties, luxury superyachts and exclusive international hospitality interiors.
Focus SB’s premium products are manufactured, finished and hand assembled in-house, making it easy for smart home lighting design and control system integrators and electrical contractors to organise samples of custom finish requirements to present to clients and offer bespoke solutions. 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 control systems manufacturers including Lutron and Rako via an interface or custom made faceplates. 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, Ambassador and Horizon Square faceplate styles.
Focus SB partners and develops products with major lighting automation and home technology system specialists to provide seamless interior finish detailing, setting your projects apart from the mainstream. Our unrivalled in-house finishing service enables design consultants, av and lighting control engineers and building contractors to seamlessly match finishes across countless wiring accessories from switches and sockets to home cinema, media room and security products.
"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 cover plates 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.
