AUSTIN, TX — Resideo Technologies Inc. recently hosted its 32nd annual CONNECT event. The event brought together security and HVAC customers for training, community service, new product, and technology announcements, and to celebrate partner achievements.
"Resideo continues to invest in resources to help our professionals keep pace with the consumer, stay updated with world-class training, and ultimately help protect what matters most," said Phil Theodore, president of Products & Solutions at Resideo. "Each interaction I've had with our professionals during the last 20 months demonstrates their perseverance, and I'm extremely grateful for their continued dedication to support the smart home customer."
A New Era of Services
At CONNECT 2021, Resideo showcased its new Pro-IQ™ monitoring and business intelligence services, a suite of solutions aimed to help the professional attract more customers and maintain those relationships by delivering valuable insights 24/7, 365 days a year. New offerings across Resideo's extensive security, HVAC, and smart home technology portfolio will become available to additional professionals in 2022. Existing solutions available to select professionals include:
- Pro-IQ™ LifeWhere — an HVAC asset-monitoring solution that helps HVAC professionals remotely diagnose equipment, identify an issue, and support proactive service before the equipment fails; and
- Pro-IQ™ AirCycle — a proven, business-development program that enables a data-driven indoor air quality (IAQ) conversation between contractors and homeowners and identifies opportunities based on six IAQ elements.
“Overall, the pandemic has created an increased reliance, value, and usage of technology, including: deliveries and online orders, broadband, indoor air quality and energy management solutions, home security solutions, and expanded interest in whole home services,” said Elizabeth Parks, president of PARKS Associates, during her keynote speech on the CONNECT 2021 stage. “The industry is at an inflection point where consumers are truly embracing and looking to technology to help them — whether for convenience, comfort, savings, or care for themselves, other family members, or their assets. Their professional service provider has several opportunities to create new value for consumers through connected devices and services in the home."
