A new £35,000 smart homes showroom has today opened on Moulton Park today.

The showroom on Tenter Road is a collaboration between two companies - TAG Electrical and CD Blinds - who specialise in home automation systems including lighting, integrated SONOS sound systems, remote control blinds and bi-folding doors.

The store officially opened during a launch party today (Friday) and there will be food and fizz upon arrival, as well as a 10 per cent discount given to everyone who attends between 3pm to 7pm

The showroom has taken around four months to complete at a cost of £35,000 and will be open to commercial customers as well as members of the public.

TAG Electrical directors, Tom White and Gavin Chambers, are hoping that the new showroom will enable them to effectively demonstrate how their products can make lives easier, not just in the home but in business premises too.

“This project has been two years in the making and we are very excited about opening our doors and showing people what we have been working on,” said Tom.

“The great thing about a smart home or business is that you can choose exactly what you want to automate. At home, you can control just your lighting, blinds or heating right through to multi-media and so much more. For businesses it allows the office to open and close itself, lights to come on, security alarms turn off and blinds open all automatically or at the touch of a button.”

Chris Dickens, owner of CD Blinds, added: “We have created a great space for our clients to see all of our products at work and experience first-hand how these systems can make a difference in a residential or commercial property. Being able to display blinds, lighting and home automation all in one showroom will make for a great experience for any customer who walks through the door.”

After Friday, December 7th, the showroom will be open Monday to Friday, 9.30am until 5.30pm.
