AVAD to Celebrate ABB Partnership with Yacht Cruise
ABB Welcome will be available at the end of April from AVAD and aims to provide integrators with modern and elegant door entry systems for home security, surveillance and intercom.
ABB Welcome offers a modular Outdoor Station design, along with various Indoor Station options.
“We are very excited to partner with ABB as the first national US distributor for ABB’s door entry systems," Jeff Neilson, vendor business manager for AVAD, said in a statement.
"Welcome provides users with elegant design and stellar technology, which we think is going to be a great asset for our dealers to provide their customers with. We invite our associates, dealers and installers to join us for the special ABB Welcome Launch Event later this month.”
The ABB Outdoor Station starts as a two-way intercom system with a built-in invisible speaker design. With the addition of a camera module, it adds a 1080p camera with night vision, including infrared LED light sensors that switch over from day to night mode allowing residents to monitor the camera in the dark. Aluminum and stainless steel enclosure come in multiple sizes, and can be surface or flush mounted.
The ABB Indoor Station comes in a variety of types and sizes, from a basic audio handset to a full 7” color display panel, with intuitive touch control that communicates with the Outdoor Stations to provide full system control. It includes the ability to save images and set customized passwords for access control.
ABB Welcome can also be accessed by users via the ABB Welcome app, available on all smartphones.
“ABB's Welcome offers both a beautiful modern style and an elegant look, but is more than just a robust door entry system," ABB Product Marketing Director, Camilo A. Delgado, stated. "ABB Welcome also helps you create an atmosphere of comfort, harmony and style in your home. In addition, we are confident that our partnership with AVAD will add tremendous value to our go-to-market strategy.”
ABB will host the ABB Welcome Product Launch on Wednesday, April 27 in Marina del Rey, Calif. to celebrate the partnership with AVAD and the official product launch of Welcome. The event, open to AVAD dealers and installers, will take place on board the FantaSea Yacht and feature special entertainment.
The new partnership will make AVAD the first national partner of ABB Welcome within the USA.
