D&H Enhances Connected Home Offerings with Remo+ Door Monitoring Systems
D&H Distributing, a major provider of SMB and consumer technologies to the North American high-tech channel, announces it has enhanced its growing linecard of connected home products through its latest new manufacturer partnership, with Remo+. The WiFi-based Remo+ DoorCam, RemoBell, and Chime solutions allow homeowners and small businesses to monitor entry to their homes or facilities.
According to Remo+, the award-winning Remo+ DoorCam is world's first and only wireless, over-the-door smart HD camera that can be placed over any door to help secure a house or rental property. DoorCam features advanced motion detection, two-way audio, night vision, indoor Wi-Fi connection, and can integrate with Amazon Alexa and Google Home. DoorCam lasts up to 12 months until batteries need to be replaced.
The distributor now works with a breadth of manufacturer partners in categories such as IP surveillance; automated home lighting; distributed, multi-room audio systems; and WiFi-enable home appliances and devices ranging from refrigerators to thermostats to home alarms. The products can remotely open doors, adjust blinds, turn on lights, adjust environmental temperatures, and even check for water leaks—both on a remote basis, and/or via voice commands through the Echo device. Manufacturer partners in this category include Amazon, August, Elgato, Emerson Electric, Google Home, Honeywell, iHome, Linksys Wemo, Nest Labs, Samsung SmartThings, Simple Home, and more.
D&H has been building its portfolio of connected home devices since the category first emerged. Due to its unique cross-market expertise in both IT and consumer electronics, the distributor was among the first to advocate “digital convergence” when WiFi-enabled capabilities began to manifest in consumer devices. The company heralded the smart home automation and “DIY” trend as a way for its retail and installer customers to differentiate themselves with cutting edge offerings. The onset of electronic assistants such as Amazon’s Echo Alexa and Google Home have since provided consolidated platforms by which to manage the array of WiFi-enabled home products, making them easier to use and therefore more practical purchases for the typical homeowners.
“We’re excited to welcome Remo+’s innovative door monitoring systems to D&H’s growing ecosystem of connected home solutions,” said Trevor May, executive director of vendor management at D&H Distributing. “We’re encouraged at the ease-of-use and ubiquity that home automation and remote monitoring have achieved in the marketplace. Uncomplicated yet sophisticated products such as these bring us closer to the seamlessly automated, effortless ‘smart home’ environments the industry—and the consumer—has been imagining for decades.”
