Innovation is key to Awards success for VBH

Hardware manufacturer VBH has been successful at the Medway Business Awards, winning the Product Innovation category during the ceremony on Friday 17 November.

The award was given for VBH’s work with its greenteQ ‘smart’ products, initially with the Q-Smart fingerprint/app operated door handle and with the more recent development of the greenteQ iQ range of security window locks and multipoint door locks.

Judges visited VBH House in September and were impressed by how greenteQ iQ locks can be quickly upgraded by the simple addition of a sensor to work with Kubu to link windows and entrance doors to a smart home network.

Benefits to the end user include a quick check on the open/closed and locked/unlocked statuses of windows and doors via the Kubu app, security and comfort alerts etc. Products fitted with greenteQ iQ locks can also be linked to other elements of the network, such as heating, lighting etc.

The Medway award comes hot on the heels of the greenteQ iQ security window lock receiving the Best Window Component award at the National Fenestration Awards in October.

Gary Gleeson, VBH’s Marketing Manager, said: “Installers who offer the greenteQ iQ/Kubu concept are reaping the rewards of homeowners’ hearty appetite for upgrading their new installation from the ordinary to the extraordinary. If greenteQ iQ locks are fitted to windows and doors as standard, it is a very simple and inexpensive process to link them to a smart network at any time if the customer wishes.

“VBH has been very successful in recent years, and one of the keys to that success is the constant stream of new innovations that we are bringing to market, including our new ‘smart’ products.”
