Continues Expansion into the CEDIA Retailer Market
TAMPA, Fla. (December 18, 2014) – DOW Electronics, the leading Consumer Electronics distributor in the Southeast, announced today that it has reached an agreement to be Logitech’s national fulfillment distributor of the Harmony Remote Control line for the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) channel. DOW provides Logitech with the distribution knowledge and infrastructure needed to push the new Logitech Harmony® line to CEDIA integrators.
Logitech created the Harmony line to provide customers with a way to control their home entertainment and more. Logitech has applied their expertise and leadership in universal remotes to the home control market with new home automation product compatibilities. The new Harmony Living Home lineup gives customers easy access and control over a wide library of entertainment and home automation devices, all from one centralized control system. The new Harmony remotes feature the ability to easily control devices from Sonos, NEST, Lutron, AppleTV and many others.
DOW Electronics continues to grow their home automation strategy with this partnership. “We believe the connected home is where the market is headed and that consumers need professionals like those in the CEDIA channel to provide them with the right products,” stated John Yodzis, Executive Vice President. “Logitech’s Harmony line provides an easy, clean, and simple way to control all of the smart products in the home. It’s a natural fit for the marketplace and for DOW.”
“This is a great opportunity for DOW and for our integrators,” stated Dave Elkin, Vice President of Sales. “Logitech Harmony has simplified control of home entertainment and is now simplifying home automation. The Harmony line compliments many of the other products DOW carries and gives our retailers the opportunity to build home automation packages for their customers.
The full line of Harmony products will be available for all retailers in DOW’s territory and for CEDIA integrators and distributors nationwide. DOW Electronics will leverage its online ordering system and distribution centers to support the Harmony line’s nationwide distribution.
