nCube Home at the Ideal Home Show at Christmas at Olympia London
Once again, we showed off the nCube Hub and other smart devices at the Ideal Home Show at Christmas at Olympia London last week (23-27 November). We had over 500 visitors coming to our stand to see a live demonstration of the nCube home hub in action. They got to understand the real added value the nCube can bring to their homes by adding a layer of security, comfort and convenience.
At the show, there were more than 650 exhibitors across 6 sections including Interiors & Home accessories, Food & drinks, Home improvements & outdoor Living, Fashion & Beauty, Technology & Gadgets, Christmas decorations and Christmas arcade. Thousands of visitors came to the show not only for the shopping but also to enjoy the Christmas entertainments such as the choir, karaoke, celebrity chefs, home and food ideas to get ready for the festive period.
We were exhibiting in the Technology & Gadgets section where we had our smart home all set up and decorated for the Christmas festivities. We set up the stand to show a Christmas dinner cube (automation) where the lights would switch to red and green, the music played a Christmas track, the thermostat switched to the perfect temperature and the Christmas tree lights were switched on. We also showed the visitors how to set up a “lived in feel” in their home while they go on Holiday and a “warm welcome” when they come back home.
Just like each consumer event we participate in, we had a show special offer exclusively for the visitors to our stand. They had the choice between buying the nCube hub at 20% off from its original price or buy the nCube Home at the regular price and get 4 D-Link smart plugs for free. Most of the people chose to take the 4 smart plugs because they could start using their smart home right away by plugging any 4 devices they have at home and start creating things like a “lived-in feel” at home, a “warm welcome” home or a “relaxed wake up”.
We also had a Competition for all the visitors who wished to enter. We draw 3 winners from our List and 3 visitors won a Sonos play 1, a Philips Hue starter kit or LIFX colored bulb. The winners were thrilled when they received the good news. We will post the name of the winners in a further blog and on our social media.
