AIN Changes Name to GE Home Technologies
The Authorized Integrator Network (AIN) changed its name to GE Home Technologies. The name change was announced at the group’s meeting Sept. 14 at the Oxford Hotel in Denver during the 2006 expo of the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA). AIN was formed to market home control and audio/video systems through builders to homeowners by sharing with the builders a percentage of the recurring revenue. Manufacturing partners in AIN include General Electric, Sony Electronics, H-P Products and Philips. From left are: David Griffith, vice president sales networked solutions; Stan Matysiak, (second from left with microphone), president of GE Home Technologies (formerly the AIN Group); Jim Paulson, general manager networked solutions; and Stan Earnshaw, vice president sales and marketing networked solutions. All are from GE Security except Matysiak.
