From the 1st November 2021, CAME will deliver an unrivalled connectivity solution to both installers and end-users. Once again CAME are leading the way in the development of smart technology and with an unrivalled cloud connected eco-system.
CAME UK are offering free connectivity through revolutionary cloud connectivity technology. The launch of Always Connected means that CAME Connect is now free with all connectable automation kits sold in the UK. This statement demonstrates CAME's commitment to cloud connected technology providing seamless connectivity with every automation kit. The Always Connected campaign is available for all installers across the UK and Ireland who purchase CAME’s connectable automation kits.
President of CAME S.p.A., Andrea Menuzzo, commented: “2021 is the right time for CAME to pass to the second phase of our connectivity strategy where we are very excited to be able to offer customers in the UK & Ireland free connectivity with all our connectable range of automation kits. A monumental offer that will continue at least until the end of 2022.
Early adopters of our connectivity have already confirmed beyond any doubts the extra value that it gives to both the installer and the final user of our systems. Extra value that for the foreseeable future will be free to our valued customer base.”
CAME Connect has been available since 2017, via Wi-Fi and GSM, but for the first time CAME are providing a complimentary package to ensure every installation is optimised. Always Connected kits include an RGSM Module, 1NCE activated SIM Card and RSE Card. The RGSM module is a versatile connectivity gateway to the cloud that operates effectively in both rural and urban settings, making it the ideal choice for automation installations. A huge benefit of this campaign is the free 1NCE SIM pre-synced with 480mb, which ensures connectivity is enabled as soon as the installation is complete. As a result, there are no delays between installation and connectivity, allowing CAME technicians to deliver a smooth installation and ensure end-user satisfaction. The RSE card can be used to establish system expansion for further integration with other automated components. Once these components are configured, installers and end users will be exposed to the world of cloud connectivity- delivering ultimate flexibility and control.
Managing Director of CAME UK & Ireland, James Bostock, stated: “CAME UK & IE have been promoting CAME Connect for a number of years with many of our loyal, hardworking customers seeing the benefits for themselves of what CAME Connect can offer to their business. It’s fair to say that any new technology can only be rolled out at the speed at which the market is ready to adopt it & CAME Connect in the early days was a different proposition to the powerful infrastructure and architecture we have today.
Our R&D team in Italy have worked resolutely for a number of years to deliver an award winning, end to end solution, that perfectly balances the needs of our installer and their business’s, alongside the ever changing expectations of End Users, which is always the final destination of our product.
CAME UK & IE are now delighted, excited and incredibly proud to be the first to roll out FREE connectivity for all of our customers.
In a world of increasing raw material prices, semi-conductor shortages and general business challenges, it is truly a wonderful feeling for CAME to be able to give something back that is so incredibly valuable to both our customers, and their customers, without there being a catch or a hefty price attached to it.
When benchmarking CAME automation systems against all our mainstream competitors, no longer can anyone compare only hardware, electronics and price! Adding in this incredibly powerful suite of Connectivity Apps, back office cloud solution and FREE activated Sim Card, all in the one box ready to go… how can any comparison ever be the same again?”
CAME Connect enables installers to remotely monitor all of their connected automated systems from any location in the world, increasing working flexibility and improving customer satisfaction. Moreover, diagnostic tests can be performed remotely, subsequently permitting faster system alterations as well as considerable operational cost savings. Always Connected ensures that CAME Connect is easier than ever to install, and the abundance of benefits for both installers and end-users cannot go unnoticed. Beyond this, CAME Connect is a significant sales differentiation that can be built into service plans to enhance future revenue for all installers.

Always Connected is an industry first and demonstrates CAME's commitment to provide installers with the best products on the market. The advancements to connectivity through continuous innovation is an indication of future organisational ambitions. Once again, CAME are leading the way by keeping both installers and customers ‘Always Connected’.
Lee Palmer from Essex Gates Systems, stated: “Always Connected will change the way our business operates, enabling us to provide a further enhanced level of service for our customers. We can monitor all our installations remotely- which for a business of our size is a real winner.
CAME Connect as a product has enabled us as a business to become more efficient in our working practices. The problem we had previously was always deciding who was going to cover the costs of the SIM card, but that isn’t a problem anymore. We’re all excited about the prospect of Always Connected, and we cannot believe that CAME are giving it away for FREE. It really is a game changer.”
