The Digital Delivery Group (DDG), a consortium of 14 regional CE specialty distributors, and the Z-Wave Alliance announced a “strategic alliance” to provide sales, training, support and increased awareness of the Z-Wave wireless home control technology to custom integrators via DDG’s members.
“Z-Wave’s mesh network opens up exciting new possibilities for wireless integration, now and in the future,” said DDG President Mark Friedman. “There is synergy with Z-Wave and our vendors that ultimately will increase sales for our manufacturers, our members and our customers.”
“It is a pleasure to welcome Digital Delivery Group to the Z-Wave Alliance,” said Z-Wave Alliance Vice President Mark Walters. “We are excited to work with them to inform and educate the custom install community about Z-Wave-certified products and the unique benefits of wireless interoperability, affordability and the extensive range of convergence product solutions for true home control.”
“I am delighted that Z-Wave and Digital Delivery Group have formed an alliance to bring the Z-Wave story to the custom integration market,” added DDG Executive Director David Kaplan. “Z-Wave’s ‘ecosystem’ of products and solutions will create new opportunities for progressive custom installation professionals. It is the sort of innovative concept that DDG excels at bringing to our customer base.”
