("Sandal" or the "Company")
LAUNCH OF NEW RANGE OF LIGHT SWITCHES
23 MAY 2018
Sandal plc, the designer, developer and manufacturer of electronic products, is pleased to announce that Energenie MiHome is launching a new range of light switches comprising a dimmer and 2-gang light switch and slave, which together with its wall power sockets, thermostat and radiator valves makes Energenie MiHome the only system that currently covers the complete Smart Home IoT lighting, power and heating requirements of homes and small businesses in the UK.
Sandal Plc CEO, Alan Tadd commented: "As a leading player in the Smart Home IoT market, this is a very important milestone for the Energenie MiHome business. In 2018/19, we are targeting entry into the electrical wholesale and plumbing merchant markets as the sector, through its combination with Amazon Echo and Google Home, starts to move from a "plug and play" market to an "installed for me" market. We are committed to our "works with" programme for Amazon Echo and Google Home in the UK and other territories as these systems expand their global footprint. We anticipate an increased growth in the number of installed systems through consumers and the developing social care and housing markets as we now cover the complete installation markets".
In addition, the Company is delighted to have been nominated as NEX Company of the Year for the second year running at the Small Cap Awards 2018.
