EAGAN, MN  – Capitol, the leading consumer electronics distribution source for residential systems and light commercial contractors as well as premium incentive resellers, is taking a selection of the most in-demand Connected Home products to Nashville, TN for the upcoming Nationwide PrimeTime.

From August 14 – 17, Nationwide PrimeTime, which will be held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, will feature intensive workshops, must-see seminars, customized vendor meetings, social networking events and most important, an opportunity for independent dealers, vendor partners, and service providers to demo and discuss the products that will have the greatest impact in Q4 and next year.

“Nationwide PrimeTime is one of our most important events of the year,” commented Curt Hayes, President and CFO, Capitol. “Considering that an independent distributor like Capitol caters to single- and multi-store retailers throughout the country, Nationwide PrimeTime brings us face-to-face with the dealers and vendors who speak our language.”

Capitol’s Nationwide PrimeTime booth #1867 will focus on both the Connected Home, featuring products that cover the spectrum from DIY to pro installations. Among the highlights are Lutron’s energy saving, app-controlled lighting systems; Ring video doorbells with Wi-Fi for a crystal clear view displayed on any smartphone or tablet;  and the Schlage Sense™ Smart Deadbolt, acclaimed to be one of the most intelligent Bluetooth-enabled locks in the Connected Home market.

Also at the booth will be the critically acclaimed Denon® HEOS wireless multi-room audio system that allows end-users to enjoy and control music anywhere in the home, while giving dealers myriad opportunities to sell system upgrades over time.

Added Hayes: “Events such as Nationwide Primetime are an illustration of what we hear it from our customers every day: independent dealers are best served by independent distributors.”
