Bad Weather Affecting Service

We experienced severe weather at out main office in Tafton, PA overnight.  Hail storms with strong winds brought down trees and utility lines.  At the moment our power is out and we are running entirely on our standby generator.  Our internet is also out, which causes our dealer store website to be down.

Our phone lines are up and we are fielding calls as usual.  We are able to process most orders as usual and we are able to process UPS shipments.

Stay tuned for updates.  Thanks!

Worthington Distribution Teams up with NEC and HAI for Raleigh, Charlotte and Georgia Training


Worthington Distribution has teamed up with NEC and HAI to do training in Raleigh, NC (June 14th), Charlotte, NC (June 15th) and Atlanta, GA (June 16th).

What better place to control your home than from the convenience of a display phone? Sure iPhone’s and Androids are cool but are they always on you? Do you have to drill down on the interface to see status or to make a change? Not with the NEC. Phones are always where they belong and you can see your HAI status from across the room! Heck, you can even associate extensions with audio zones and mute anytime you pick up the phone. This is some of the best integration we have ever seen from a 3rd party.

Las Vegas Training Area Construction

Las Vegas Branch Manager JJ Henderson is seen here outfitting the dedicated training area in his branch.  Two custom training panels were built and configured in our PA headquarters and shipped to Las Vegas for final installation and testing.

This effort is in preparation for next weeks Worthington University Las Vegas class.  Class is sold out, but contact us for information on available evening sessions like BitWise, Lutron, HAI, and more.

The images seen here are snapshots from our Speco DVR8WM1TB DVR.  The camera is a Speco HTINTD8.

These new training panels are not just for classes.  They will remain connected permanently as a way for us to demo the products they show.  This includes HAI Automation, Russound Audio, Leviton Lighting, Proficient Speakers, Lutron Lighting, NEC Phone Systems, OnQ Selective Call, and more.

The Biggest 2gig Keypad in the World

On Tuesday, Tom Morgan of Worthington Distribution and Tim O’Connor of Go Sales and Marketing, a 2gig Rep, visited Select Security.  During a break, Pat Egan, the company President was nice enough to show us the largest 2gig control known to exist!  It is nearly 6′ tall!  This inflatable marketing tool will certainly gain a great deal of attention.  Best of all, no programming required!
