The two CEU course will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 7. Lowder will outline why a stable power foundation built specifically for AV systems is a vital part of creating the experiences customers expect from their systems today. Attendees will learn the elements necessary to achieve reliable foundational residential power distribution and what technologies are driving the move away from a simple breaker box to the IoT-driven capability to monitor and control power needs.

Lowder leads Middle Atlantic’s growing power category and is an expert in converting market problems into powerful solutions that have been awarded multiple patents and serve the integration community. Prior to joining Middle Atlantic, he worked for ASSA ABLOY in the security solutions industry for more than 10 years. He holds a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts from Fairfield University, a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Connecticut, and an MBA in finance and marketing intelligence from the University of Connecticut.
