ESI Automation Partner Program
Electronic Solutions, Inc. (ESI) is the leading producer of intelligent motor control products. ESI pioneered motor control technology with an array of versatile products to connect motorized products with Automation companies, and most manufacturers of window coverings, projection screens, and media concealment products choose ESI controls.
ESI controls provide simple and scalable integration of virtually any DC or AC motorized product, offering flexibility on projects of any size.
ESI Motor Control Platforms
ESI’s motor controls are the foundation of every motorized installation, allowing the ability to deliver results to the end-user. ESI offers three distinct motor control platforms, each with their own application and available input devices:
ESI Automation Partnership Opportunities
Manufacturers of automation equipment who support the simple integration of ESI components into projects give end-users the ultimate control they desire. By teaming up with ESI, automation partners have access to the top companies within specialized industries including, motorized window coverings, projection screens, retractable awnings, rolling shutters, and exterior solar protection products. Manufacturers, including Draper, Da-Lite, Vutec, Hunter Douglas, and many others, use ESI controls. Supporting ESI protocols will allow for easier implementations by your dealers in installations where your devices are currently used alongside motorized products.
A partnership with ESI would be mutually beneficial. As a partner, your company will be listed on our website as a company that supports interfacing to our system with a direct link to your company’s webpage. On the partnership agreement, please state that you authorize ESI to use your logo.
Maintaining Device Drivers/Modules
We ask that our automation partners maintain up-to-date drivers for as many ESI protocols as feasible (RP, RQ and Z-Wave) to ensure that your integrators have little difficulty locating the appropriate support material for any project. ESI is available to assist with driver development.
Development Loaner Equipment Policy
Upon submission of the ESI Partnership Agreement Form, ESI will forward, if requested, an equipment loaner package for development and testing compliance of device drivers.
Due to ongoing product feature development it is advised that equipment be returned to ESI after module development completion. New equipment will be provided as future firmware releases are launched and updates to drivers are needed.
Testing of Z-Wave devices generally requires a motorized demo product be provided to our partners. These loaners are billable if not returned to ESI within 90 days.
