Lagotek & Budget Blinds Enter Into New Distribution Agreement
Motorization of window coverings new focus of Lagotek, Budget Blinds partnership
Under the agreement, Budget Blinds franchisees will sell whole home control systems in partnership with a Lagotek dealer. It is expected that all Budget Blinds locations will promote and sell full featured Lagotek whole home automation.
“Budget Blinds represents a tremendous opportunity to expand the market for whole home automation systems, and motorized window coverings are the key to new value and awareness that will increase market share,” said
“One trend that we’re seeing is homes with added convenience features,” said
Motorized window coverings will become an essential part of whole home control, providing homeowners a variety of benefits ranging from energy savings to security. Motorized window coverings provide lighting control during daylight hours, security and privacy at any hour, and climate control for both heating and cooling.
“Here’s an example of how this application functions. A zoned Lagotek climate control system can determine an unusual rise in temperature in one part of the house on a hot day, and automatically lower the window coverings to help regulate the temperature in that area, resulting in lower energy consumption by reducing air conditioning usage,” said Luskin.
“Lagotek adds an entire new product category that is directly tied to our core business,” said
Founded in 2005, Lagotek Corporation develops, markets, and supports home automation technology systems based upon patent pending, and company-owned intellectual property. Lagotek is employing a new software-based approach to home automation solutions, which run on an open hardware platform. Applications for this home technology include audio, climate control, security systems, intercom systems, lighting, video monitoring, window coverings, IR control, and irrigation systems.
