In the year since Control4 acquired Neeo, the remote that the company subsequently released has been an unequivocal success. Matt Scott joins Kordon Vaughn in the Control4 booth to talk about how the Neeo Remote is making a difference in the smart home channel.
“The reception’s been huge. We bought Neeo because we wanted to up the game associated with all of the interaction devices,” Kordon Vaughn says. “We knew that people are investing in their smart homes; they are going to spend a lot of money, in many instances, for something, they want an interface that give them complete access to that home and our interfaces can do that. But there is a certain elegance here, in this product, that is representative of what you’ve got In your smart home.”
Kordon says the Neeo is one of Control4’s fastest selling products and it is actually bringing in new customers and allows Control4 integrators to introduce it to existing customers.
Control4 is also showcasing its Signature by Episode brand of in-wall and in-ceiling loudspeakers — a premium iteration of its Episode line — that Kordon says is one of the fastest to install and service.
Scott and Kordon also discuss the distribution deal Control4 and SnapAV struck last year, which now gives international dealers to products that were once only available in the U.S. and Canada.
