Having quickly become Harvey Norman’s number 1 selling smart home range, the Connect Smart Home branded products are expanding with a huge new range from lighting, power, garden and security.
Connect Smart Home is a brand from Laser, the Aussie tech company selling a vast range of gadgets in some massive numbers across some of our biggest retailers like Big W and Harvey Norman.
Exclusive to Harvey Norman, the Connect Smart Home range is headlined by the $10 smart WiFi connected Lightbulb which is the perfect starter to smart controlled “things” for anyone with a Google or Amazon smart speaker.
Over 2.6 million Aussie homes have at least one smart speaker, and a third of those have more than one.
Research shows that that market is going to boom, growing by 92% by 2024 when the average Aussie household will have an estimated 35 or more connected devices.
Chris Lau, Managing Director of Laser and Head of CONNECT SmartHome said “Australians have voted with their wallets and shown that they are much more comfortable with smart lighting, security and power than ever before. 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,”
“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.”
