On Episode 1201 of the Residential Tech Talks podcast, Paul Williams joins us from Salt Lake City, UT, where he is chief product officer for Nice North America, the global manufacturer of smart home, security, and building automation solutions.
Nice, which was founded in Italy by current owner Lauro Buoro in 1993, acquired Nortek Security & Control from Melrose Industries back in October of 20 21. In September of this year, the company announced that it would be sunsetting Nortek Control as a company name and absorbing several of its custom integration brands into the Nice brand. By integrating ELAN, SpeakerCraft, and Panamax into the Nice brand, the company says, they will progressively leverage their full portfolio of solutions for home and building management.
Williams, who spent a lot of his career at Control4 and more recent years at Savant’s GE Lighting brand, explains the changes and talks about new products that were introduced at CEDIA Expo this fall.
