PowerHouse Alliance Members Focus on Home Control During April Training Schedule
With ISC West 2016 in their rearview mirrors, PowerHouse Alliance distributor members are turning their attention to their April training schedules, which place a real emphasis on home control and automation. Dealers will be given access to insider tops on how to identify opportunities within the rapidly growing smart home market as well as face-time with manufacturer reps at a variety of education sessions, PowerHouse said.
“The smart home space is constantly evolving, which can make it difficult for dealers to stay on top of the trends and products consumers are demanding at any given time,” Dennis Holzer, executive director of the PowerHouse Alliance, said in a statement. “As a group, we want our collective dealer network to understand and experience these new products through our lineup of training sessions so they can turn around and leverage this category for new business opportunities with their customer base.”
PowerHouse said that Member Electronic Custom Distributors Inc. (ECD) will kick off the month of training with Clare Controls at all three of their Texas locations. Starting at their Houston headquarters on April 5, the team will host a half-day session before moving on to Austin on April 6 and Dallas on April 7. And fellow PowerHouse Alliance member Consumer Electronics Distributors (CED) will also give dealers a closer look at the Clare Controls hub and configuration software during a basic training session on April 19 at their Northbrook, Illinois location.
