SnapAV, the industry-leading source of A/V, surveillance, control, networking and remote management products, has added new products from four powerhouse custom integration brands to its industry-leading SnapAV Pro Stores – Allnet, CPD, MRI and Volutone – to provide partners with immediate access to more solutions and greater ability to tackle diverse projects.
Partners can now benefit from local availability, and in many cases same-day pickup, of Cleerline’s advanced Multimode fiber optic cabling, FX Luminaire’s LED architectural and landscape lighting, Clare Controls’ smart security and smart home solutions and Parasound’s audiophile-grade audio systems.
“SnapAV Pro Stores pair convenient will-call pickup of thousands of the latest products with award winning customer service, providing our trusted partners with everything they need to finish jobs efficiently,” Trevor Hansen, SnapAV Vice President of Local Category Management. “We set the stage for success by ensuring SnapAV partners across the U.S. have local, in-person access to the best and most innovative products on the market, from security and control to lighting and audio/video. This proves that when partners work with SnapAV, they aren’t just getting a product catalog, they’re getting a business partner that truly cares about their success.”
The newly available solutions from Cleerline provide our partners with the most advanced fiber optic cabling technology available, with Cleerline Multimode fiber delivering 10,000 times the bend capacity, 400 times the pull force of standard fiber and cutting time spent on terminations by up to 50 percent. While these advantages make Cleerline Multimode easier to install and maintain, it’s also safer to work with, because it was designed specifically not to penetrate skin or soft tissue.
As an industry-leading manufacturer of landscape and architectural lighting products FX Luminaire’s advanced LED landscape lighting technology offers our partners sophisticated, intuitive digital lighting control with zoning, dimming and color adjustment capabilities. Through native compatibility with lighting and control systems from Control4, Lutron, Crestron, Elan and Savant, the FX Luminaire line affords SnapAV partners the opportunity to specify next-generation lighting solutions for new construction, retrofit and home control expansion projects.
At the same time, integrators can benefit from the introduction of Clare Controls’ ClareOne Wireless Security and Smart Home Panel, combined with the new backend management platform Fusion Pro. Offering fully encrypted security sensors, smart home features and drivers for more than 200 of the most popular smart home systems and devices on the market notably including Control4, the easy-to-use system is ideal for a variety of project needs and sizes. The new ClareOne hardware enables connection to third-party solutions, even allowing users to add DIY components to the system, while vital security concerns are controlled by the installer.
For clients demanding the highest-quality two-channel and surround sound audio amplification, integrators have to look no further than SnapAV’s newly available Parasound audiophile-grade amplifiers. With full access to Parasound’s venerated Halo, ZoneMaster, Z Custom and New Classic amplifier lines, partners can deliver amazing audio for listening rooms or home theaters regardless of space constraints, budget or wattage needs with two to 14 channels of high-power output.
“2021 may be a blockbuster year for home improvement projects, and SnapAV partners are excellently positioned to fulfill homeowners’ new technology needs with the industry’s most trusted brands and most innovative solutions,” said Wally Whinna, SnapAV Senior Vice President of Local.
In fact, the company believes so strongly in its SnapAV Pro Stores, which include Allnet, CPD, MRI and Volutone, that it added tens of thousands of square feet of wholesale floorspace to support the needs of SnapAV integrators nationwide in 2020. Plus, stores will be added in the Charlotte, Atlanta, Ft Lauderdale and Scottsdale markets in Q1 2021 with more to follow later in the year.
The expansion of SnapAV Pro Stores also adds to the company’s ability to host regional training sessions, although in-person training has been suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each physical store practices full precautions to protect their staff and customers, following all social distancing and facial covering ordinances and enacting strict disinfection and cleaning protocols.
