The Legrand | AV team talks with Tim Albright from AVNation to address how we are solving the challenges our customers and industry colleagues are facing when everyone & everything is forced to move remote. Watch the video at the link or read on for tips and solutions.

The conversation included Darrin Thurston, VP of Product Development – Vaddio; Beth Peterson, Product Marketing Manager – Vaddio; and Mark Tracy, VP of Solutions Strategy

Supply Chain & Support

Tim A: What steps can we do to help our situation, the next time, whether it’s a weather event or something as unfortunate as this?


Mark T: We’re encouraging integrators to think about it a little bit. Ask yourselves these questions:

  • Are you putting in ‘stop-gaps’ to just work for now in this occurrence or are we building in future resilience?
  • Is it a one camera solution to just get it up and running today or if we choose a little different system, would we be set up for the future for a multi-camera situation?
  • Can this be redeployed?
  • Are we actually investing in something that will have a little bit longer shelf life?

Tim A: Legrand has connections all over the industry, what are you doing as a company to specifically help integrators and their clients to get through this?

Mark T:

  • Keeping people connected
  • AV University
  • Publishing a lot of new content
  • We have a Solutions & Engineering Team, who are ready to help with system design, rapid deployment, and answer your questions
  • Carefully managing the supply chain (See the FAQs)

Tim A: If you don’t have a certain product, you are going to suggest alternatives – what mechanism does that take?

Mark T: It’s an uncertain situation, that is rapidly changing – if we do run out of supply, we are making sure we have a suggestion to an alternate product.

  • We’re watching inventories every day
  • We rely on our customer care teams and if they see something out of stock then we contact the customer and offer an alternate suggestion

Tim A: How do people get a hold of you?

Mark T: Contact our Sales Team by finding your local representative here.
