Earlier this year, we announced our merger with System 7 and The Boston Shade Company (the latter is a division of System 7).
We've invited System 7 president Gerard Lynch to answer questions regarding his companies, including how he envisions working with Wolfers Lighting.
It's time for the 60-second elevator pitch. What does System 7 do?
GERARD LYNCH: System 7 is a systems integrator (sometimes referred to as a residential systems integrator). What does that mean? It means we work with all things electronic. It starts with a home network, wired and wireless, good Wi-Fi, and so forth.
From there, it involves various systems or "subsystems" that connect to a home network as part of a smart home. Think audio, video, lighting, motorized shades, climate control, security and surveillance, access control, and more—everything that would go into a smart home design.
At System 7, our big focus is on lighting controls and motorized shading. The Boston Shade Company is a division of System 7, and it is part of this merger with Wolfers Lighting as well.
