Manufacturer showing the EXTREME functionality of Z-wave networks.

Veteran climber Mariusz Malkowski of Sigma designs and the Z-Wave Alliance has been tasked with a feat only a few people have been able to accomplish which is climbing to the peak of Mt. Everest! What’s more is that he will be demonstrating the power and reliability of Z-Wave networks by controlling a few different Z-Wave devices from the Earth’s highest mountain! An initial live connection from the Everest base camp is planned for April 16 at the Z-Wave Pavilion at ISC West in Las Vegas.

As conditions allow, attendees will be able to watch Malkowski control several smart home devices using only his smartphone, including Fibaro sensors,  Kwikset and Yale Locks, 2GIG’s Go!Control garage door controller and a FortrezZ water valve, which will all be located on the show floor.

This is a busy time of year for Worthington Distribution and we are diving in head-first! For our next event, we are very excited to host a local organization, The Wayne County Builders Association, for their monthly membership meeting. We will have the opportunity to educate and demonstrate to their members our security and automation offerings. In our demonstrations, we will show not only the features but also the benefits and usability of the leading manufacturers we distribute.

Additionally, if you would like to be on the cutting edge of the security market, you will want to attend the ISC West trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada. ICS West is the largest security industry trade show in the U.S. This will include over 1,000+ exhibitors and brands as well as over 28,000 security professionals. The show runs April 14, 15 and 16.  We will be in 2 locations, co-exhibiting with Dakota Alert Booth #33062 and exhibiting in the Z-Wave Alliance Booth #28065. We hope to see you there!
