Mighton has gained SBD approval for its Avia Secure smart casement handle.

The SBD accreditation follows recent PAS24 testing and approval for the handle, which is designed to notify homeowners of the status of their windows with alerts to Apple devices or via Apple HomeKit.

The Avia Secure range includes door, window and PIR sensors, a sash window fastener and smart socket which – like the casement handle – have also achieved the government-recognised BSI Internet of Things (IoT) security standard. The comprehensive range includes the Avia smart door lock too, which has passed rigorous testing to be awarded both Sold Secure SS301 Silver approval and ETSI accreditation. 

Mighton chairman Mike Derham said: “Homeowners want the assurance that they are using the best technology available, which is why we have designed all our Avia devices to work seamlessly with Apple’s iOS operating system and HomeKit platform.

“But they also want the peace of mind that the security products for their windows and doors are robust enough to withstand traditional attacks and can still function properly in a worst-case scenario.”

All products in Mighton’s Avia Secure range are retrofittable. The casement handle, sash fastener and window & doors sensor are all battery operated. Paired to Apple devices with Bluetooth LE technology, they allow users to check whether windows or doors are open or shut.

The Avia secure range smart socket, which is compatible with Apple Home Automation, performs as a high-tech motion sensor. Battery powered and available with an optional mini solar panel, the motion sensor can detect potential intruders from up to 10m away, illuminating them with a powerful LED light or sounding an audible alert.
