Covered subcategories include: audio, video, control, security, automation, networking, energy management and more.

When the housing bubble burst a few years back, everyone (us included) held our breath for a while as the dust settled. But we didn't wait long before putting new plans into effect. The need for retrofits has created whole new categories that are becoming more and more popular (and profitable) every day — home networking, wireless control systems, energy management, and more. With concerted efforts to educate installers on these new categories while supplying them with proper marketing tools, we witnessed a growth in our dealers' businesses that has continued year after year.

Similar to the 12 Volt Channel, Custom Home AV as a category comes with the added benefit of distribution support through our sister-company Custom Plus Distributing. Dealers and retailers benefit because they're able to "cherry pick" products without the pressure of meeting volume requirements, while manufacturers benefit through both increased channel exposure and fulfillment options for online sales.
