With increased focus on automation, remote control and the connected home, Z-Wave based solutions are creating new growth opportunities across the market. The integration of systems has become increasingly popular, and the explosion of smartphones and tablets and the advancement in apps continue to drive demand. Z-Wave technology has opened a new space for dealers to capture additional revenue streams, and ADI offers a full line of Z-Wave based products from some of the best brands in the industry.
To showcase our connected home technologies and give dealers an opportunity to demo the latest products through interactive displays, we recently launched a connected home branch display at our Bohemia, NY location. The store-within-a-store concept introduces dealers to Z-wave enabled smarthome technologies, and lets them see, touch, and test drive products before presenting them to customers.
The connected home branch display features more than 50 products and the solutions represented include security, video surveillance, lighting controls, locks, thermostats, garage door sensors and controls, water sensors and valve controls, and window shade controls. This model helps dealers understand how to integrate security systems with home automation, offer hands-free remote control, and provide a solution that lets users stay connected to their home or office.
So far the connected home display has been well received with our dealers, and we keep receiving more positive feedback every day. More and more dealers are telling us how valuable it is to be able to demo the products in a working environment.
ADI will use the connected home display to host training events to provide dealers with a hands-on learning experience. In addition, ADI offers connected home training seminars at all the ADI Expo events throughout the year, and hosts connected home training opportunities at our local branch locations across North America.
Products currently featured in the Connected Home Branch Display include the Honeywell Tuxedo Touch with Wi-Fi and Voice Control, Honeywell LYNX Touch 5200 and 7000 Touchscreens, Honeywell Z-Wave Thermostat, Honeywell Indoor and Outdoor IP Cameras, Yale Z-Wave Locks, Kwikset Z-Wave Locks, Leviton Vizia-RF Z-Wave Lighting Controls, Graber and Somfy Z-Wave Controlled Shades, Leak Intelligence Z-Wave Water Valve, FortrezZ Z-Wave Water Valve, and more.
The Connected Home Display is part of a pilot program at ADI, and we have plans to bring this home automation prototype to additional locations across North America.
