Dealerscope's annual IMPACT Awards program is designed to recognize products in the consumer electronics industry that are innovative, help drive sales on the show floor, and drive consumers into stores.
What’s different about the IMPACT Awards is that Dealerscope puts the power in the hands of our audience. Sure, we pick a couple of “editor’s choice” awards that stand out to us. But we really want everyone in the industry—manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and even consumers—to have a say throughout the entire process, from nominating these products to, ultimately, voting on and picking our winners.
And one unique way of looking at the winners each year is to break them up into their various product categories. This gives us a unique opportunity to understand how consumers—and the industry in general—feels about products in each of the specific segments of the consumer technology industry. It’s with that in mind that we present the connected products honored in the Dealerscope 2018 IMPACT Awards program.
Control4 When Then Automation
Control4 brings the best of both worlds to the smart home, with the new When Then Automation feature on the Control4 4Sight subscription service. When Then is an intuitive, easy-to-use web interface that enables Control4 homeowners to adjust their control systems for the way they live, as they live it, without needing to call their custom integrator for every minor change in programming. Prior to When Then, homeowners were limited in their ability to make tweaks to their systems and required dealer assistance for changes including, but not limited to, schedules, scenes, and triggered events.
