Leviton Manufacturing Co. Inc. is acquiring ControlThink LC, a home and building control software and services company. The acquisition will combine Leviton’s product manufacturing and distribution with ControlThink’s PC-, CE- and mobile phone-based solutions for intelligent home control.

 

Both
Leviton and ControlThink employ standards-based technologies, such as
the Z-Wave wireless home control architecture. As a Leviton company,
ControlThink will develop new products offering interoperability with
products from allied industry partners.




“…
Leviton is committed to offering innovative, market-sensitive products
and services to the home technology segment of our business,” said Bob
Becker, Leviton’s vice-president and general manager, Residential
Business. “ControlThink’s extensive software and services capabilities
will uniquely position Leviton as the premier industry partner for
residential control solutions.”




Operating
as a separate, wholly owned subsidiary, ControlThink will continue to
offer solutions to its existing OEM partners and customers, while
aligning with Leviton to expand the market for intelligent home control
solutions, products and services. CLICK HERE to visit Leviton online.
