Trade Events Calendar for 2017: Programme gets off to a 'smart' start at ELEX Ally Pally


Hamilton began its 2017 programme of trade events in London at Alexandra Palace for the ELEX exhibition on 1-2 February.

The show was a great success, providing a fantastic opportunity for Hamilton to showcase its latest product offering and for the team to speak to a huge number of professional electricians and installers.

Baris Yigit Hamilton WinnerParticularly popular was Hamilton’s Smart Lighting Control Challenge. With it taking approximately 4 minutes and 30 seconds to wire a dimmer pack and one control plate in Hamilton’s Smart Lighting Control solution, electricians and installers were challenged to beat this time, with Baris Yigit from North London completing it in an impressive 3 minutes 41 seconds to win £1,000 worth of smart lighting control equipment.

With there being a lot of confusion and uncertainty over the skills required to install smart lighting control, the competition demonstrated just how easy the Hamilton ‘plug and play’ system is to use, with no specialist programming required. It also encouraged installers to sign up for free Hamilton training sessions so they can brush up on the latest product installation methods.

The demand for smart controls continues to increase and Hamilton’s Smart Controls Specialist, Mark Brady, took the opportunity to participate in a seminar and discussion panel about smart homes to illustrate the business opportunity it presents for installers.

With Hamilton’s first ELEX show of the year complete, the team is now looking forward to the next event in the calendar.
