It’s a well-known fact that Finland is known for cutting-edge and innovative design. Catering to the Finns’ affinity for aesthetics is the country’s annual Housing Fair event, which takes place during the region’s long, summer days that are cherished by both locals and visitors alike.
Finland’s annual Housing Fair showcases the ongoing and future trends in housing industry, such as architecture, interior design, and home technology. The Housing Fair is where housing developers, builders and home innovators can introduce their work to a large audience of both professional and private attendees.
This year, The Housing Fair has set out to explore the future of housing. F-Secure has partnered with Telia, one of the largest telecommunications providers in the Nordics, for the event. Telia is exhibiting their very own smart home, where visitors can interact with smart home devices and experience the future of connected technology firsthand. Inside Telia’s smart home is F-Secure SENSE, a smart security router that secures all of one’s connected devices. Learn more about F-Secure SENSE.

Smart homes will do the same for homes as smartphones did for phones,” says Telia’s Business Development Manager Kimmo Ahvenlampi. Read more about Telia’s smart home exhibition (in Finnish).
