Seattle, WA — The EDGE Distributors Group has established a partnership with Cooper Wiring Devices to nationally distribute the manufacturer’s ASPIRE RFT Wireless Lighting Control Systems.
Cooper Wiring Devices’ ASPIRE RF products incorporate Z-WaveR two-way radio frequency (RF) based technology, which enables control of more than 200 devices (comprised of both ASPIRE RF and other Z-Wave Alliance manufacturers) on a single home network. The ASPIRE RF line consists of switches, receptacles, dimmers, scene
controls, remote controls, accessories and screwless wall plates.
“The EDGE Group is thrilled to introduce Cooper Wiring Devices’ Aspire RF Wireless Lighting Control products to the custom installation market,” said Mike Hench, president of The EDGE Distributors Group. “Lighting control has become an important product category that addresses not only convenience, but also safety, security, and energy conservation. The intelligently designed Aspire RF line offers dealers retrofit
opportunities as well as new construction capability. And EDGE is perfectly suited to provide the training and support necessary to help our dealers take advantage of this exciting product category.”
Cooper Wiring Devices Technology Products Division director of sales, Bill Johnson,
added, “We chose The EDGE Distributors Group because of their proven track
record in educating dealers on the processes necessary to deliver such ‘higher’ technologies to homeowners — from the sales, to the design, to the installation phases — and to repeat business.”
Cooper Wiring Devices and The EDGE Group plan to roll out a sales training program this summer. The program is aimed at educating dealers on wireless system control integration into the home, ease-of-use and profitability opportunities.
