The Home Technology Specialists of America (HTSA), announced a new partnership with home automation and control solutions company Crestron Electronics, effective March 1. The partnership, HTSA said in a statement, brings together “two like-minded organizations” that are dedicated to bringing the high-performance, luxury residential integration channel “superior distributed audio/video, home automation, lighting, and control solutions.”
For HTSA members, the partnership with Crestron means an expanded set of options for their system design and installation projects due to Crestron’s wide assortment of products and solutions in AV, lighting, shading, security, and HVAC.
“We are very pleased to partner with Crestron Electronics, one of the leading brands in custom integration” Jon Robbins, Executive Director of HTSA, said in the statement. “As each organization is deeply committed to offering the finest residential technology solutions available, the business focus synergy of this relationship just made all the sense in the world for HTSA.”
For Crestron, HTSA brings to the table a national network of residential system integration professionals that cater, particularly, to the higher-performance luxury market.
“We are very excited to be partnering with HTSA, the industry’s premier integration technology buying group,” John Clancy, Vice President of Residential for Crestron Electronics, said in the statement. “Over the last 18-months or so, Crestron has been deeply committed to further advancing its residential division—investing heavily in new products and building sales, marketing and support teams dedicated to the residential channel. As such, the timing for this partnership couldn’t be more perfect and we look forward with great anticipation to meeting and working with all of the HTSA members.”
Crestron’s first appearance at an HTSA event will happen in early April at the buying group’s annual Spring Conference in Orlando.
