AVAD Expands its "Works with Nest" Product Lineup
AVAD is a North American solutions provider for residential and commercial custom installation markets.
The Rachio smart sprinkler controller is EPA WaterSense certified. The associated mobile app allows users to adjust their sprinkler system from their smartphone or computer. The Rachio controller connects to Wi-Fi and accesses local weather data to automatically create and adjust watering schedules to save water and money. A user can enter specifics about their yard such as soil type, vegetation, slope, sun exposure and nozzle types to get personalized recommendations. When users connect to Nest, they can get their Rachio water savings in their monthly Nest Home Report. If a user’s Nest Protect detects smoke, Rachio will cycle through sprinkler zones for protection.
Dropcases allow users to turn Nest Cams into outdoor installations for security while also providing camera resolutions, real-time talk and listen and night vision capability. The Weatherproof IP66 Enclosure from Dropcases is designed with a polarized lens and anti-reflection ring to give a clear camera image in daytime and nighttime settings. It includes the ability to run the Nest Cam cable through the gooseneck of the Weatherproof IP66 Enclosure for an easy installation.
To celebrate the addition of Dropcases during AVAD’s Outdoor Month, AVAD dealers will receive a free, weatherproof Dropcases with purchase of three Nest Cams during the month of April.
“We’re excited to add Dropcases and Rachio to our product lineup to allow integrators added versatility with their Nest-compatible systems," Timo Hildebrandt, senior vendor business manager for AVAD, said in a statement.
"Dropcases and Rachio are both stellar, robust products that will provide our customers and their clients with strong outdoor solutions for their home automation needs. With the demand for home automation increasing, these products will make Nest solutions even more attractive for our dealers.”
