Dealerscope 2019 IMPACT Awards
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.
It’s with that in mind that we proudly present the Dealerscope 2019 IMPACT Awards.
OS 2.10.4 with When >> Then Automation
Rolled out earlier this year during CEDIA 2018, Control4 upgraded their platform’s operating system with a whole host of new features and functionality. But the thing that stands out most about the new OS 2.10.4 is the added ability to completely personalize the smart home experience for the user with When >> Then options. Explained simple, When >> Then gives the Control4 customer—or the installing integrator—the ability to set up all kinds of action >> reaction scenarios throughout the smart home right in the customer’s Control4 account. For example, when the door sensor detects motion, then the TV will turn to a specific channel; or when the kitchen keypad is pressed, activate a specific lighting scene. There are tons of possibilities, all of which aim at simplifying and making the at-home experience more efficient.
Who would’ve ever thought you could buy the family an entire home theater system in just a couple of boxes? Sure, there are more powerful, fully loaded and integrated home theater experiences out there. But with those, you’re looking at dropping tens of thousands of dollars. With Enclave, you’re getting a really strong home theater experience for a fraction of the cost (just $999). But wait, there’s more. This is a wire free 5.1 home theater experience. One of the craziest things about the Enclave system is that, once your speakers are in position and plugged into their respective power sources, a simple press of a button starts the connection process—and seconds later you have a fully-synced home theater experience. The sales pitch for Enclave: It’s a strong, simple-to-set-up, seamless home theater system that doesn’t break the bank.
