Nortek Security & Control Joins HomeSphere Marketplace
In their continuing effort to foster connections between builders and manufacturers, Nortek Security & Control has struck a partnership with the construction industry’s leading marketplace, HomeSphere. The cloud-based technology platform and its two accompanying applications offer mutually beneficial services to members in both the building and manufacturing communities. Within My HomeSphere, builders can effectively manage their rebate programs and discover new products while manufacturers can take advantage of HomeSphere-IQ to access important homebuilder data. There, manufacturers can see where their products have already been installed, and discover new opportunities to expand their services.
“HomeSphere is a natural partner for Nortek Security & Control’s state-of-the-art technology products,” said HomeSphere Chief Revenue Officer Greg Schwarzer. “Homebuyers are seeking more and better smart home devices. Through our digital marketplace local builders gain incentives and more awareness of Nortek Security & Control’s products, while NSC can target the right products and the right support to the right buyer with our proprietary data and information.”
This new partnership directly aligns with the mission of the Nortek Security & Control New Home Program that is working to help builders create complete and effective connected home strategies. Builders can take advantage of aggressively price packages, “sell-through” services, direct manufacturer product and marketing support and project oversight, and industry-leading model home and incentive programs. Just recently, The New Home Program tacked on some new names to the list including ELAN® automation, SpeakerCraft® audio, Panamax® power protection, 2GIG® security, Linear® access control, Numera® health and wellness, and GoControl® connectivity solutions.
“Through HomeSphere, we can reach over 2,600 local builders with the solutions and services available through the Nortek Security & Control New Home Program, and connect them with certified dealers to create significant new business opportunities for all,” said NSC Director of Builder Services Bret Jacob. “The Nortek Security & Control New Home Program is a win-win-win for all involved: the builder has access to technology solutions and unparalleled marketing support to effectively sell automation packages; the dealer has a major new source of revenue; and the homebuyer can easily add-on leading smart home technologies at the point of purchase.”
“The Nortek Security & Control New Home Program significantly changes the relationship between dealers and builders, creating a new revenue-generator for our partners,” Jacob concluded. “Our partnership with HomeSphere will help us continue selling our solutions and services through the Home Program and align our dealers with new builders in the community.”
