Houston — Wave Electronics has launched mobile-friendly and dedicated security websites, so approved dealers can now view products and information in a way that caters to a mobile device.
In lieu of simply “recanning” the current website into a mobile site or app, the team worked to create the site from the ground up, the distributor said.
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.
Dania Beach, Fla. — Wave Electronics has opened is newest full-service location and has begun carrying the Pioneer Electronics line in Florida.

The tour, which kicks off May 8, will provide product demos, literature, tech support, live music, motorcycle stunt shows, a model runway show, contests and giveaways in dealer parking lots. It will also incorporate social media and on-air radio station giveaways. JVC noted that it will use local advertising, promotions and club relationships to draw in attendees.
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.
