LASER delves deeper into consumer smart home products
Australian consumer electronics firm LASER is set to release its second generation of smart home products to the market, which cover everything from security cameras and smart doorbells to LED lighting, smart power boards, and water controllers.
Laser is a relatively new entrant to the smart home category after entering the market a year ago. Having launched the CONNECT SmartHome device range and secured retail deals with Harvey Norman, the company has launched the next iteration of products.
According to Laser managing director Chris Lau, Australians are growing much more comfortable with smart lighting, power, and security.
“But they have also shown how price sensitive they are, which makes sense in this economic climate and given the number of smart devices they are seeking for their home at any one time,” he notes.
“With our second generation range we are expanding into areas that people may have not thought could be smart, or otherwise have previously come with a high price tag. As consumers look for new and different ways to integrate smart technology into their lives, we remain committed to driving the category in delivering affordability and accessibility to the Australian smart home.”
Products in this range are controlled via the CONNECT ShartHome app, and are also compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
