Smarten up your home with the all new BG Smart



BG Electrical is proud to announce the launch of a series of competitive Home Automation products called “BG Smart”. Creating a worldwide presence under the umbrella of the Luceco PLC Group, BG is making waves across markets by adding to its strong portfolio of contemporary and traditional wiring devices and accessories.

The new range consists of two styles of white moulded double sockets, square edge and slimline profiles, and a plug-in adaptor. The BG Smart power socket (922/HC and 822/HC) and the BG Smart power adaptor (AHC/U) allows users to control their home devices from anywhere with voice commands or via the BG Smart Home app.

As well as providing the ability to control products on iOS and Android smart devices, the BG Smart Home app is able to integrate fully with existing smart home set-ups such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home. The standalone app means there is no need to have a costly home hub installed, allowing residents to benefit from smart features without having to spend a fortune getting their property smart home ready.

Both the sockets and plug-in adaptor can be connected to the home router using a WiFi connection, via the 2.4GHz frequency. Not only that, BG Smart products have a push button for manual control with a stylish blue LED, which indicates the power status. BG has understood the customer requirements for these products and the intensity of the LED output is adjustable to suit where the socket is fitted.

Users can control the power using the button, the BG Smart Home app or voice commands. Further enhancing the user’s everyday life, the BG Smart range and app can also set time schedules, or countdown delay functions, meaning users will not need to worry about turning off their home appliances. For additional home security, a handy ‘random’ function for mimicking switching off and on of lights acting as a deterrent to unwanted guests.
The BG Smart products are manufactured and certified to the latest British Standards and are fully supported by a three-year guarantee.
