The housing market is finally recovering, and with it is the growing demand for in-home consumer electronics. In fact, The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) just released a report that stated that installed home technology, including entertainment and automation control solutions, are becoming a crucial part of home development and sales.
Steve Koenig, CEA’s director of industry analysis, stated that “This year’s study confirms CEA’s long-held belief and prediction that home technology would make a positive contribution to the inevitable housing market recovery as home buyers’ digital lifestyles and desires for energy efficiency factor into purchasing decisions.”
Lighting controls, structured wiring, entertainment, and home automation are features that are quickly becoming more and more important to home builders and buyers, and are therefore contributing to the growth of the housing market. Etratech’s electronics are used in a wide variety of these types of controls, making them necessary to the market’s continued upswing. In this way, Etratech’s quality products have a role in this exciting—and long awaited—recovery, and we’re proud to be providing the manufacturers of these products with the best electronics and controls available.
