Hamilton Litestat’s Mobile Demonstration Vehicle (MDV) is touring Ireland for the first time from 14th – 24th April 2015. Starting at Kellihers Electrical in Waterford, the MDV’s route will take in: MCK Electrical – Cork, Trade Electric – Limerick, Flaherty Markets – Galway and Castlebar, Clifford Electrical – Sligo, Harpers – Belfast and will conclude at Richmond Electrical – Dublin.

Gavin Williams, Marketing Manager for Hamilton said: “Since we unveiled our Mobile Demo Vehicle last year it has toured the length and breadth of UK. The MDV has given electrical wholesaler staff, customers and clients the opportunity to see and experience first-hand Hamilton’s comprehensive, intelligent, easy-to-use control solutions and our switch plate & socket collections. We’ve been keen to give our many Irish customers the opportunity to utilise the vehicle for sometime so are particularly delighted that our Irish roadshow is underway.”

Switch Distribution and Harpers have worked with Hamilton’s group product development & export sales executive, John Purnell, to plan and implement the country-wide tour. Christine Noonan, marketing manager at Switch said: “This is an excellent opportunity for us to raise awareness of the benefits of Hamilton’s lighting and audio control solutions. We are very pleased to have secured so many great locations for the tour and are expecting the MDV to attract a great deal of attention throughout!”

Hamilton’s MDV is designed to give customers the chance to judge for themselves just how easy Mercury lighting control and multi-room audio systems are to install. Hamilton’s technical sales team will be on hand throughout the tour to talk MDV visitors through all aspects of installing Hamilton’s Mercury systems and to answer any questions.

Gavin explained: “With Hamilton there is nothing stopping electrical contractors increasing business by suggesting their customers take the first steps to a ‘Smart Home’ by beginning with a ‘Smarter Home’. The reality is every electrical installer knows all they need to know about smart technology with the Hamilton system because each Mercury control pack is supplied pre-programmed for 4-channel circuits. All the installer needs to do is work out the number of channels he requires, say 8 channels, then simply wire two 4-channel Mercury control packs together, setting the dip switches in the wall plate to correspond to the matching channel terminal in the pack. Even remote control is simple to set-up with Hamilton’s iOS app – it requires NO PROGRAMMING whatsoever!
