CEDIA Q&A: Luxul Previews Wireless Controller, Access Points, Switches
Luxul is featuring its new wireless controller, 802.11ac access points and Layer 3 switches with RJ45 ports at CEDIA Expo 2015.
CEDIA Expo 2015 is taking place next month. CE Pro talked to Jeffrey Curtis, Luxul CEO, to learn more about its plans for the show and what to expect in booth #4625. For those looking to become dealers, contact (801) 822-5450 or [email protected].
Q. What would you say to dealers who are already familiar with your product line?
A. If you’re an existing Luxul customer, thanks for your business! If you’re familiar with Luxul but have not tried our products in the last 6 months, you really don’t know Luxul. We have a completely new line of products including a wireless controller, new 802.11ac access points and a full line of Layer 3 switches with RJ45 ports on the back and LEDs on the front.
Q. What would you say to dealers who are stumbling across your company for the first time?
A. Give Luxul products a try. Our products are our best marketing and new dealers are usually very surprised at how easy the products are to set up, how well they perform and how much better their profit margins are by installing a Luxul network.
Q. If an integrator stops by your booth with only 5 minutes to spare, what’s the one product he should examine or one question he should ask?
A. The one product to check out is our new 802.11ac wireless controller and the associated kits. The controller provides a simple wizard-based set up of all access points and, more importantly, it solves the roaming issue that wireless devices often experience when moving between access points.
Q. What’s your most memorable CEDIA moment?
A. Walking into a Luxul training course in 2014 to see a standing-room only crowd. That was a strong indication of how much dealers recognized the need to learn and better understand the importance of building a quality network for every project they do.
Q. What are your course offerings at CEDIA?
A. Optimizing Your Kick-Ass Luxul Network

T-shirts will be given away and we will hold drawings for prizes after each presentation.
Q. Think of your closest competitor (company of product). What is one thing you do offer that they don’t? Please be specific.
A. We offer the only wireless controller designed specifically for the professional installer market. Attractive pricing, simple setup, and it solves the wireless roaming problem that all installers must address with any wireless installation.
