CEDIA - LP Smart Products Collaborates With Elite Home Theater Seating To Design Smart Seating Of The Future

Relationship creates a completely unique and connected home entertainment experience

CARTHAGE, Mo., Oct. 14, 2015 -- Leggett & Platt Smart Products announces a collaboration with Elite Home Theater Seating Inc. at CEDIA EXPO to create technology-enabled, high-end theater chairs that can detect human occupancy. The seating combines LP Smart Products' LPSense® and LPConnect® technology in its launch of LPConnect Package with Elite's luxury handmade theater seating. The LPConnect Package can be implemented into any piece of home furniture and includes several customizable features including auto stop safety control, easy integration with existing automation systems, memory presets, and control over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth low energy, and Zigbee.


"As the world becomes increasingly connected, people are searching for more ways to make their homes smarter, safer and more convenient for their personal comfort," said Jason Turner, general manager of LP Smart Products. "Our relationship with Elite enables everyone to enjoy this cutting edge technology that truly takes home theater seating to the next level."

When implemented into Elite's theater chairs, individual preferences can be stored into memory presets using LPSense and LPConnect. Its LPSense technology uses capacitive sensing to detect human presence and trigger actions based on activity, such as playing or pausing a movie when the user gets in or out of the theater chair. The chair and other connected furniture can also be programmed to adjust room settings with its LPConnect technology.

"Through our combined research, we determined that the marriage of leading edge technology integration with Elite's high caliber seating is what the market demands," said Bobby Bala, president of Elite Home Theater Seating Inc. "This collaboration now enables us to further enhance the consumer's desire for the latest in technology and comfort."

From Oct. 14-17, LP Smart Products and Elite will debut their smart theater chairs at CEDIA EXPO in Dallas, Texas. For a chance to test them out, stop by LP Smart Products booth 6801 and Elite Home Theater Seating booth 7811. For more information visit, lpsmartproducts.com or elitehometheaterseating.com.
