Internet of Things


Smart Home

What we can do for your business

Smart Homes forms one significant part of the Internet of Things (IoT) which will be the largest device market in the world.  By 2019 it is estimated that the size of the IoT market will be more than double the size of the smartphone, PC, tablet, connected car and wearable market combined.  In value terms IoT will deliver around $1.7 trillion in additional revenue to the economy by the end of this decade.

At H5 our ambition is to be fully immersed in the IoT revolution, specifically from a Smart Homes perspective.  We have built and secured trusted relationships with many partners that we represent and our objective is to help them navigate their products and services into the consumers homes.

Now is the optimum time to engage with us whilst the Smart Home concept is still in its infancy.  Partnering with H5 means that your product or service will be personally, professionally and passionately represented across the UK and European retail and distribution landscape.

Whether you have a Smart lightbulb, home monitoring device, security system or completely unique idea, we can help you become part of the most exciting growth category ever anticipated.

Wearable Technology

What we can do for your business

Today’s conversations surrounding Wearable Technology tend to converge around Sports, Fitness and Health with a growing list of brands such as Fitbit, Jawbone, Apple Watch, Misfit and Pebble all bringing out desirable products to appeal to an increasing demographic of health and fitness-conscious users.

Size of the Prize?

The global market size of Wearable Technology is reportedly worth around $16.1bn this year and is expected to reach over $30bn by 2020

Limitless Opportunities for Growth

We predict huge opportunities for Wearable Technology growth from outside of just Sports, Fitness and Health.  The categories and markets that we believe will contribute to a year on year CAGR of 30% over the next 5 years are;  AR/VR, SmartWatch, Healthcare, Military, Eldercare, Kids & Pets & TechFashion

H5 can work with key retail partners to help them navigate their way through this emerging category to focus on selecting the most desirable brands for their consumers. H5 can also support Wearable Tech brands looking for senior representation to secure primary retail appointments, effectively present their products differentiation and to secure listings on their behalf.

Our commitment to you is to ensure that the potential candidate has the skills and background to meet your business aspirations and to deliver demonstrable results.
