Kenrick makes Smart Locking available now


Kenrick has signed an exclusive deal to become the UK distributor of BeeSecure – a revolutionary app-based smart home security solution, which allows homeowners to monitor their home from anywhere with their smartphone. The move follows many months of research by Kenrick to find what it believes is the best smart home security product for the market.

Reliable and easy to use, BeeSecure enables users to detect movements within their home, even if they are miles away. The system features a central hub, called the Bee-Hub, which links a series of devices inside the home to an app on the user’s phone. If a sensor on one of the devices is activated, the homeowner is alerted with a notification on their phone.

Devices in the BeeSecure range include a motion sensor, an object movement sensor, a camera, a smoke detector, a doorbell, and a window and door sensor. The window and door sensor is lightweight and compact and it detects if windows or doors have been opened. It also allows homeowners to check remotely if all their windows and doors have been properly closed. The sensor unit can be fitted by fabricators onto new windows and doors and it can also be retro-fitted onto any existing doors and windows around the home.

Steve Williams, Kenrick’s sales and marketing director, says: “Today’s consumers embrace modern technology and smart home security has the potential to transform the way we live – making properties more secure and home entry easier and more convenient.

“BeeSecure is a brilliant early warning system for homeowners, whether they are at home or not. It can let them know if anyone is outside or inside their home, if any windows or doors are being tampered with and even if smoke is detected inside their property. Ultimately, it makes their home and safer and more secure place and gives them greater peace of mind.

“We’re proud to be at the forefront of the industry by bringing a security innovation that delivers what modern homeowners want, whilst also helping forward-thinking fabricators and installers to enter the ‘smart’ market.”

Cost effective and easy to use, BeeSecure has been designed to enable homeowners to prepare their homes to be fully-smart in the future. It is also very versatile and the central hub can connect up to 16 BeeSecure devices. Additional devices can be added with the Bee-Repeater.

Archibald Kenrick

Archibald Kenrick & Sons Ltd was founded in West Bromwich in the Black Country in 1791 and has occupied the same site ever since. During the Industrial Revolution, the business became one of the country’s foremost cast iron manufacturers, something which continued for over 150 years. In the late 1940s, technological advances meant that Kenrick modernised rapidly, introducing new manufacturing techniques such as die-casting and injection moulding. Similar but evolved techniques are still used by Kenrick today.

Kenrick currently offers a variety of products for the furniture, door and window industries including castors, locking systems, handles and hinges. The majority of these products are either made on site in West Bromwich or at their overseas factories to a high standard. The design and innovation is carried out by Kenrick’s own experienced team.

In 1990, Kenrick became part of the Spire Group. It remains committed to investing in research and development, modern production techniques, new product launches and plans significant expansion over the coming years
