Effective immediately, Sound Developments Ltd. has been appointed as an INSTEON distributor for the United States and Canada specifically targeting the CI channel.
"We are proud to introduce the INSTEON portfolio of products now available through Sound Developments. Our partnership will allow us additional access and introduce a stronger position towards integrating the INSTEON brand into the custom installation channel,” said INSTEON CEO, Joe Dada.
Most INSTEON products feature proprietary dual-band technology, communicating over RF and power line for robust system communication regardless of environment. With no central processor, the system is infinitely scalable from a single room to a whole home and beyond to large commercial projects. INSTEON supports both iOS and Android platforms and offers easy integration with any third-party control system.
Dada added: “We truly feel that Sound Developments, with their vast network of installers and great reputation, is a perfect partner to expand our brand in this space. Sound Developments has built a great organization that provides industry-leading products to some of the finest installers in the business. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship."
INSTEON offers a $30 USD retail, network-dimmable, 8-watt LED bulb that can simply replace an existing incandescent bulb in any standard fixture to provide immediate dimming control without changing a single switch.
Sound Developments president Barry Wosk talked about how the relationship came to be: “When we first met with the INSTEON team earlier this year, their product seemed too good to be true. But after extensive testing and market research we realized we had a real winner on our hands. The trio of robust communication, easy integration, and price is unparalleled in the category.”
Continued Wosk: “Our combination of world-class brands, next-day delivery, and nationwide rep network made us the obvious choice to deliver INSTEON products to specialty A/V retailers and custom integrators across North America.”
INSTEON will be part of Sound Developments’ exhibit (booth #3800) at CEDIA EXPO 2013 in Denver September 26 to 28.
