This just in: according to a U.S. consumer household lighting behavior study conducted on behalf of lighting control systems developer Lutron Electronics, leaving the lights on in empty rooms is the leading pet peeve with most Americans for wasted energy and the expense it produces.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
Atlanta - CE and custom-install distributor Wave Electronics has opened its first branch in the Atlanta market earlier this month.
The new facility, located in Duluth, Ga., is run by Tivo veteran Andrew Risner and Bob Gatton, a former system integrator. The showroom is expected to be fully operational over the next few months.
The Atlanta launch follows the September opening of the first of two New Jersey locations, and the recent relocation of Wave’s Austin, Texas branch to a new facility that, at 12,000 square feet, effectively doubled its size.
