What & Where: Staying ahead of the curve, Avensys has addressed the growing interest in the connected home with the launch of a 4,000 sq ft smart home at its store in Crawley. “We recognised that the way consumers shop for home appliances and audio visual products is changing and we expect growth in the Smart Home market of 450% over the next four years,” says MD Markus Wood. “We think we’re in a great position to help people understand the concept of connected homes and how it can work for them.”
Why Visit: Avensys believes that a smart home should make your life simpler, not more complicated. It walks its talk by making sure there is a specialist team on-hand to explain the products and technology on show. That’s not all. Set up like a home away from home – complete with an open-plan kitchen-living room, bathroom and study – visitors can experience the technology first hand in a familiar environment.
The Highlights: From the luxurious living room to the beautifully designed contemporary kitchen, there is plenty to tickle the tastebuds at Avensys. For us, however, it is the stunning home cinema that steals the show.
