Building upon its commitment to bring new builder channel business opportunities to its systems integration partners, Nortek Security & Control (NSC) has announced a new partnership with HomeSphere, a Colorado-based digital marketplace that connects building product manufacturers directly with regional homebuilders.
“Through HomeSphere, we can reach over 2600 local builders with the solutions and services available through the Nortek Security & Control New Home Program, and connect them with certified dealers to create significant new business opportunities for all,” says NSC director of builder services Bret Jacob. “The Nortek Security & Control New Home Program is a win-win-win for all involved: the builder has access to technology solutions and unparalleled marketing support to effectively sell automation packages; the dealer has a major new source of revenue; and the homebuyer can easily add-on leading smart home technologies at the point of purchase.”
HomeSphere’s cloud-based technology platform and two applications close the gap between builders and manufacturers. Builders use My HomeSphere to efficiently manage their rebate programs and discover new products, and manufacturers use HomeSphere-IQ to access homebuilder data such as where their products are installed and where there is opportunity to grow market share.
The Nortek Security & Control New Home Program helps builders create complete and effective connected home strategies. It aligns builders with certified dealers and offers them a complete range of benefits, including aggressively priced standard and upgrade packages, “sell-through” services, direct manufacturer product and marketing support and project oversight, and model home and incentive programs. The program’s benefits to homebuyers are equally strong, beginning with the ease-of-personalization and ease-of use delivered by NSC’s ELAN smart-home control system.
The recently expanded New Home Program includes ELAN automation, SpeakerCraft audio, Panamax power protection, 2GIG security, Linear access control, Numera health and wellness, and GoControl connectivity solutions.
