Home Powerline and Wireless Technologies

Integrators are cautiously optimistic about the prospects for 2008 sales of home systems and controls technologies despite the current slowdown in new home construction, according to Parks Associates and EH Publishing.

The two firms presented a summary of their latest research, analysis, and forecasts at EHX Spring 2008 in Orlando, FL, March 14.

"Despite the severe contraction in new home construction, home systems integrators are hopeful for continued sales gains in 2008," said Daryl Delano, director of research, EH Publishing.

They have benefited from the fact that approximately 50 percent of their business comes from installation work within existing homes.

"Powerline and wireless technologies have developed to the state where they are stable, reliable, and offer the performance demanded in the custom installation channel," said Bill Ablondi, director of home systems, Parks Associates.

Many dealers have adopted these technologies to expand their retrofit business at a time when new construction has dropped off.

The EHX briefing will include results from the Channel Quantification Study, an update on dealer awareness and use of wireless and powerline technologies, and an update on the residential building market, including trends in new construction, remodeling, and retrofit.
