Suttle, a Communications Systems, Inc. company (NASDAQ-GM: JCS), has been named a winner of the TecHome Brilliance Award for the MediaMAXTMContractor Kits.

The TecHome Brilliance Award is awarded to products that demonstrate a high level of innovation, value and excellence. Selection criteria pay attention to entries that show high levels of efficiency, increase the performance of a home and convenience, and provide outstanding experiences for homeowners.

Backed by a century of designing and manufacturing high-quality connectivity solutions—currently in 67 percent of US homes—Suttle designed a line of contractor kits to simplify the installation of intelligent and secure networks for single family units (SFU) and multiple-dwelling units (MDU).

“Based on customer input from service providers, developers and contractors, Suttle created kits with all the network components needed to configure a MediaMAX panel into a securely wired home network,” says Bruce Blackwood, Suttle President and General Manager. “A single part number for all components not only simplifies the process it also takes the guesswork out of ordering the right parts. And the contractor kit can be ordered after the media panel is installed to minimize the risk of parts getting damaged or lost because they were delivered too soon.”

Blackwood continues, “Suttle is focusing on creating the experience of Smartest Home. Best Life. for homeowners by helping providers create the strong networks that support smart homes.”

Sev Sadura, Suttle Director of Product Management explains that “Contractor kits provide either CAT6 or CAT6A performance as well as the connectivity components needed to build a securely connected network for a basic, connected or smart home.”

The procurement process is simplified by a two-step shipping process utilizing just two part numbers. “The first part number orders the panel for the rough-in stage. The second part number orders the kit with network components to arrive at a later date to fit the trim or final construction schedule.” Sadura adds that “All kits include our new line of designer style faceplates for a modern look that will blend into any décor.”
