Leading Australian electrical safety and energy solutions innovator, Clipsal by Schneider Electric, has today announced its Electrical Design Application, Clipspec was awarded Gold in the Digital - Home & Living category at the 2021 Sydney Design Awards (DRIVENxDESIGN).

The annual DRIVENxDESIGN Awards come under the world’s largest network of Design Award Programs, providing marketplace recognition across an extensive range of categories.  Celebrating creativity and courage, the Awards highlight the top products and services available to help Australians live better and smarter around the home.

Made in collaboration with digital and UX design agency, Luminary, the Clipsal Electrical Design Application Clipspec is an industry-leading tool that has revolutionised the process of planning electrical, lighting and smart home needs for new home builds and renovations.

Clipspec allows a consultant to create a personalised electrical and lighting plan for a homeowner, addressing the homeowners lifestyle needs. A search and filter function guides the user to toggle through Clipsal product categories and design choices allowing for complete personalisation. Builders partnered with Clipsal can also self-manage consultation sessions, control staff access or make their own changes to pricing and products through the app.

From here, a full electrical plan of the client's future home is created along with an itemised bill of materials, so homeowners can keep track of their budget.

The judges of the Digital - Home & Living category acknowledged the app's ability to assist consultants in the building or renovating of homes to help consumers bring their electrical vision to life. 

Clipsal by Schneider Electric combines over 25 years of local know-how with global expertise to create innovative products and services to build personalised homes of the future. The Clipspec app takes inspiration from modern web-based design tools and best practices, while incorporating strategic planning and visualisation functionality to enhance the experience and increase accessibility to the user.
