INSTEON Expands Presence in Latin America and Mexico

Major Connected Home Player Opens Two New Offices and Offers Dealer Trainings to Home Automation Enthusiasts

IRVINE, Calif.--INSTEON, creators of the world's best-selling home automation and control technology, today announced the opening of two new offices in Ecuador and Guatemala. Each location will feature a connected home and office showroom, product inventory and local tech support for the company's growing user base.


Training sessions for INSTEON dealers will also be available. The upcoming session, "Introduction to Technology and Applications," will take place Wednesday, July 16, 2014 in Queretaro, Mexico from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time. The session will also be presented as a webinar for dealers in Ecuador and Guatemala on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. local time.

"The new offices in Latin America not only expand INSTEON's global footprint, but also serve the connected home and office market in a highly populous region of more than 600 million residents," said Joe Dada, CEO, INSTEON. "Local retail customers are delighted that INSTEON is expanding availability of its simple, affordable and reliable home automation products and technology to homes and businesses in Latin America. With our new offices and professional INSTEON trainings for dealers in Latin America and Mexico, we aim to provide unprecedented access to the most innovative connected home offerings on the market."

INSTEON's reliable dual-band technology uses both the existing wires (power line) in the home and radio-frequency (RF) communication instead of relying on spotty Wi-Fi connections and routers, which dictate where smart devices must be placed to work properly. By making every networked device talk to each other via RF and the power line, INSTEON eliminates the need for custom wiring and ensures that every device is always connected. Adding remote control and automation to everything from home monitoring to lighting, INSTEON's dual-band network and devices allow users to manage the home or office in more variations than any other home automation technology.
