One of our collective New Year's resolutions at Russound is to dig deep into the markets that complement our brand. Innumerable Russound dealers benefit from a healthy product mix that includes the leading CI and DIY products in the security category.


No wonder. Products that tap into the potential of the connected home are a smart complement to modern whole-house audio systems like ours, tying together multi-room entertainment with intercom, security cams, and remote locking options.

ISC West is an important show for any CI specialist to follow, whether it's on the front line or via the press. It features over 1,000 exhibitors showing their latest and greatest wares to nearly 30,000 security professionals.

Considering the market potential for our customers, we took part in the recent ISC West trade event in Las Vegas, with a display that featured the new XSource streaming audio player and the popular XTS wall mounted color touchscreen.

We had a great time seeing old friends and making new ones, but more important, it was exciting to see just how well the new security and whole-house entertainment technologies are fitting under the same roof, whether it's a new home, a retrofit, or a commercial installation. Our friends on site were vocal about what they would like to see from Russound as we continue to integrate with compatible industries. And, for those who didn't make the trip, please send us your feedback by chiming in on our dealer forum.
