AVAD Announces Exclusive US Partnership with ABB

Los Angeles, Calif. – AVAD LLC, North America’s leading provider of solutions to the residential and commercial custom installation markets, announces their nationwide partnership with ABB for their Welcome door entry systems. The new partnership entitles AVAD as the first national partner of ABB Welcome™ throughout the U.S.A.

ABB Welcome, available end of April from AVAD, provides integrators with modern and elegant door entry systems for home security, surveillance, and intercom. The future of home monitoring and security, ABB Welcome, brings impressive style with innovative technology in their modular Outdoor Station design, along with various Indoor Station options. The ABB Outdoor Station starts as a simple two-way intercom system with a built-in invisible speaker design. With the addition of a camera module, it adds a full 1080p camera with night vision, boasting infrared LED light sensors that switch over from day to night mode allowing residents to monitor the camera easily – even in the dark. The aluminum and stainless steel enclosure comes in multiple sizes, and can be surface or flush mounted.

Turning indoors, the ABB Indoor Station comes in a variety of types and sizes, from a basic audio handset to a full 7” color display panel, with intuitive touch control that communicates with the Outdoor Stations to provide full system control. The sophisticated design of the Indoor Stations allows them to blend with any décor, while providing users with the ability to save images and set customized passwords for access control. ABB Welcome can also be accessed by users anywhere, at any time, with the ABB Welcome app available on all smartphones.

“We are very excited to partner with ABB as the first national US distributor for ABB’s door entry systems,” said Jeff Neilson, vendor business manager for AVAD. “Welcome provides users with elegant design and stellar technology, which we think is going to be a great asset for our dealers to provide their customers with. We invite our associates, dealers and installers to join us for the special ABB Welcome Launch Event later this month.”

ABB’s Welcome offers both a beautiful modern style and an elegant look, but is more than just a robust door entry system,” according to ABB Product Marketing Director Camilo A. Delgado. “ABB Welcome also helps you create an atmosphere of comfort, harmony and style in your home. In addition, we are confident that our partnership with AVAD will add tremendous value to our go-to-market strategy.”

ABB is set to host the ABB Welcome Product Launch on Wednesday, April 27, 2016 in Marina del Rey, Calif. to celebrate the partnership with AVAD and the official product launch of Welcome. The event, open to AVAD dealers and installers, will take place on board the FantaSea Yacht and feature special entertainment on the magnificent waters of Marina del Rey.
