MIGHTON PRODUCTS, is making its new Apple HomeKit-based multipoint Avia smart lock the product available to the UK through MILA and the two will be exhibiting together at the FIT Show on a stand dedicated to the product.
The product, which Mighton launched at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas earlier this year, is said to be the world’s first Apple HomeKit smart lock to be developed for multipoint systems, and is controllable using iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch, keypad and fob.
Mila will use its market presence to introduce the Avia smart lock to resi door manufacturers and installers serving the home improvement market. Mighton is also developing further related smart home products based upon Apple HomeKit technology.
Mila managing director Richard Gyde says, because Avia is fitted on the inside of the door, it also allows them to fit Mila’s SBD accredited SupaSecure stainless steel door handle on the outside, and continued: “There are more than 1.3 billion users of Apple products worldwide and the prospect of offering such an advanced product, the world’s first for multipoint door locks.”
Mighton’s Mike Derham added: “We operate on the periphery of the home improvement market and believe that Mila will ensure that the full potential for Avia will be realised. As the only Apple HomeKit-based multipoint smart lock, demand for Avia will be strong and companies that offer Avia as an option for their customers will enjoy the kudos that the Apple HomeKit brand and technology will bring to their product.”
Mighton Avia smart locks and accessories will be available from May 2019 to the UK window and door trade.
