St. Paul, MN — Capitol Sales Company, the national distributor, has added Home Automation Inc. (HAI) to complement its line of vendor partners. From home control systems, communicating thermostats and smart light switches to whole-house audio, access control, video surveillance equipment and touchscreen interfaces, HAI’s broad and innovative product line brings even more solutions to installers nationwide. The HAI line also includes software that allows automation system access and control over the Internet.
“HAI is continually recognized for its innovative products and has won more awards than any other home automation company,” said Curt Hayes, president and chief financial officer. “We are proud to align with HAI’s strong brand name and great reputation for delivering high-value home automation solutions. The addition of the HAI line fits perfectly into our efforts to expand our Home Control and System Integration product offerings.”
“One of the reasons we’re excited to partner with Capitol Sales is because of the synergies between our two companies,” said Jason McCool, HAI territory sales manager. “Capitol Sales has a leading market position and is well respected as an emerging technology distributor. While Capitol Sales can offer dealers our proven line of home automation and control products, we’ll benefit from Capitol’s technical sales and support expertise to help grow our business.”
According to Hayes, another great benefit of the partnership is that many of Capitol Sales’ current vendor partners are also HAI Connectivity Partners, working to integrate their products with the HAI product lines including Russound, OnQ Legrand, Xantech, Leviton, CentraLite, and others. “Our dealers will appreciate easy access to the HAI product line as they build custom home solutions that integrate products from several vendors,” Hayes said.
