Quickslide to display ‘really smart hardware’ at Fit


Quickslide’s Fit Show stand, R31, is to showcase a full display of AviaSmart retrofittable smart door and window locks and sensors, and related accessories, this May. The fabricator and vertical sliding (VS) specialist has an impressive reputation for introducing innovative design and performance elements to its popular replacement vertical sliding box sash windows, according to representatives of the business, and the team is known for taking the attitude that just because Quickslide products are heritage in style, they don’t have to be any less effective than modern-styled frames.

So what’s so smart about AviaSmart? Following on from the Apple-HomeKit-approved AviaSmart multi point door lock – which was introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in 2019 – AviaSmart now includes a unique smart sash fastener for VS windows – a Quickslide exclusive – smart casement handles and secure door and window sensors. These products connect to the AviaSmart app, which alerts homeowners about windows and doors that have been left unsecured, and whenever they are opened.

A key selling point is that everything can be fitted and retrofitted by anyone with a screwdriver, to any normal PVC-U and aluminium doors and windows, Quickslide’s representatives have said. Crucially, offering AviaSmart means no commitment to randomly pre-installing electronics in frames during manufacture, allowing fabricators and installers to choose from a range of ‘highly secure’, Apple-HomeKit-branded-and-endorsed smart products according to sales. No subscription is required.

Offering AviaSmart window and door security products in a showroom requires minimal change and outlay to begin offering the latest smart security to homeowners, according to representatives of the business. In addition to having undergone the rigorous testing standards of Apple HomeKit, all AviaSmart products are BSI Kitemarked and Secured by Design where relevant. See and try AviaSmart home security products on Quickslide’s stand, R31.

Earlier this year, Quickslide’s representatives announced that the team themed its Fit Show stand ‘Engineering Future Innovations’ this year, hoping that visitors won’t be able to miss it. Read more about this here.
