RGB Communications Adds Dedicated Internet of Things Division
RGB Communications Ltd, Technical AV Distributor, has announced the formation of a new Internet of Things (IoT) division, and welcomes Russell Wiles to head this department, as they continue to strengthen their foothold in the Smart Home market place.
Noting success with the recent launch of the Nest Learning Thermostat, Nest Protect, Nest Cam and accessories, the RGB team says by setting up a brand new IoT division they are “opening up to an entirely different market, in addition to continuing to offer its exceptional service and expertise in the high-end AV market.”
“Although many IoT products are relatively low cost and low margin, clients are becoming aware of devices like the Nest Learning Thermostat and are specifically asking their AV installer for them.” commented David Webster, RGB’s Chief Technology Officer. This combination of low cost, wide market appeal and high demand result in a massive opportunity for RGB and its customer’s to maximise business opportunities in this area.
At the forefront of RGB’s IoT division is Russell Wiles, who has 24 years of experience in the AV industry, having held managerial position in two leading AV companies.
Wiles is also looking forward to the challenge ahead. “With such great potential growth possibilities, the IoT market place is one that I am very excited to be part of,” he said. “During my previous role, RGB became a valued customer of ours and always went about things in the most professional manner. When a chance arose recently to join the company, it presented an ideal opportunity for me to take on a new challenge.”
