SnapAV, a provider of professional AV, surveillance, control, networking, and remote management solutions, has been rebranded as Snap One. According to CEO John Heyman, the new name reflects the company’s goal to be “the best provider of solutions, services, and platforms for custom installation integrators whose businesses have grown well beyond AV products.
“The name ‘SnapAV’ no longer fully represents who we are or our aspirations for the future,” says Heyman. “We kept the name ‘Snap’ because of our ongoing mission to make our partners’ lives easier. Snap One builds upon this legacy and reinforces our aspiration to be the integrator’s most valued and most trusted partner. We want to be the one place with the broadest portfolio of best-in-class products; the one shopping experience that can be done online or in-store; and the one partner that professionals can depend on when installing and supporting the amazing experiences that their customers desire.”
The new name also represents a unified company that includes legacy SnapAV and Control4 organizations following the major merger in 2019.
“Together, now as Snap One, the company can serve as the industry’s central source for everything needed to succeed, today and in the future,” Heyman continues. “The name Snap One emphasizes our desire to be the one-stop-source for the solutions that integrators need – including control – whether it’s with our own solutions or third-party products.”
Later this year, Snap One will unveil one unified portal so integrators can research, quote, and purchase products from a single location. The company will also have one streamlined loyalty program. “Our goal,” Heyman explains, “has always been to offer great products and top-tier services that simplify the integrator’s life and support their business. Our new platforms and services are designed to do just that.”
The announcement of a new company name comes on the heels of several major corporate developments, including the acquisition of networking provider Access Networks and a significant investment in remote support solutions provider Parasol.
Snap One designs, manufactures, and distributes smart solutions for homes and businesses, with a portfolio of more than 4,300 proprietary SKUs in entertainment, connectivity, and infrastructure, along with two software platforms (OvrC and Control4 OS3) that provide broad interoperability with thousands of third-party products from hundreds of vendors.
Snap One’s business platform enables partners to shop online and in 27 (and counting) brick-and-mortar stores, both of which provide value-added tools, training, and support that Snap One says drives business efficiencies that enable integrators to be more successful.
“Created out of respect and passion for smart technology, this company was founded by technology integrators who saw a better way to do things,” Heyman concludes. “We realized integrators needed a better partner to purchase, deliver, and support products for connected homes and businesses, and since 2005, we’ve been able to do that.
“Snap One represents our central mission and reminds current and future customers that we strive to be the one company in the industry that can provide a range of solutions, services and options in a snap.”
Established in 2005 and based in Charlotte, NC, Snap One is a manufacturer and exclusive source of AV, security, control, networking and remote management products for professional integrators. Control4 is Snap One’s premier brand for automation and control. Snap One products are available in Canada through BC-based Staub Electronics.
