With more people working from home, there has been a surge in demand for smart technology. People want their homes to be smart places to work as well as play.
A new Dublin-based e-commerce firm has developed an interesting offer.
Nicola Murphy, CMO of Connectify, says setting up a smart home or a smart office can be difficult but doesn’t have to be.
“We bring together some of the most popular smart products to form convenient bundles to help make things easier for those who are not confident with technology,” says Murphy.
Connectify started during the pandemic and turnover has grown three-fold each month since its launch in August.
There are currently five bundles available:
Starter Hub is designed for those who want to venture into the world of connected homes; this bundle does what it says and gets you started.
Entertainment Hub lets you cast, connect and command your TV with a host of Google products to entertain the whole family.
Safe & Secure offers products you can control from your phone for both inside and outside the home. Includes a Nest doorbell, external camera and a smoke alarm that tells you exactly where the problem is.
Fitness & Health means you can listen to your favourite work out music, monitor your fitness and track your Health with earbuds, a fitness tracker and a smart scale.
Home Safe is a popular bundle for consumers with elderly parents. Includes an internal camera with two-way audio, a smart plug and a smoke alarm that sends alerts to your phone if there’s a problem.
Connectify also offers customers virtual support to help them set up and get the most out of their new products. Customers can have access to a virtual support team for 12 months from the date of purchase.
The new business is the brainchild of Ciaran McGowan (CEO), Nicola Murphy (CMO) and Simon Joly (COO).
“As an active volunteer with Coder Dojo for many years, I believe everyone should have access to technology,” says Joly.
