Acquires Southern CA-based Unify Smart Home
Expands its Autonomous Home™ Presence to Southern California
NEWTOWN, PA and WOODSIDE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / September 22, 2022 / RC-1, Inc., dba "Hi Solutions", announced today that it has acquired Unify Smart Home of Temecula, CA through the acquisition of its parent company, Medley Communications effective January 1, 2022. Unify is a key strategic addition that expands the company's capabilities and reach with a proven process-driven approach and strong presence in the important Southern California region.
"Unify's team has built something extremely special in the desirable SoCal market," commented John Parker, President and CEO of Hi. "Unify's leadership group has developed highly structured and repeatable home automation solutions that connect customers to what matters most to them. We are thrilled to add Unify's experience, relationships, tools, and know-how to our growing organization and extend the Unify solution to a broader market segment than what is traditionally served by custom home integration providers."
Unify founder and president Darrin Medley commented, "Since day one, we've been focused on enhancing people's experience at home. We've grown our presence, our offerings, and our team by staying true to that mission. I'm proud of what we've accomplished as a private company, and now we're ecstatic to enter a new chapter as part of the Hi family, building on what we've established in California and helping our new team bring that commitment to citizens across the country and eventually around the world."
Medley, an industry luminary and pioneer and member of the Sonos advisory board, has joined the executive team of Hi Solutions as its Chief Operating Officer, where he is focused on implementing core systems and operating principles enabling Hi to integrate acquired companies and scale the business. Medley's business partner, Damien Klaas, has also joined Hi in a senior management role, focusing on the day-to-day management of Unify's business operations.
Michael Moe, Executive Chairman of Hi, stated: "Hi Solutions has significant momentum in the booming autonomous home market. Covid accelerated the megatrend of the home becoming the operating platform for life. We are very excited about the acquisition of Unify as it accelerates our business opportunity and also brings a very talented team into the Hi Solutions family."
The Unify acquisition is the latest announced transaction executed to advance Hi's "rollup" program, a cornerstone of its strategy to become a national provider of technology solutions for home users and business customers. The Company has previously announced the acquisitions of Fort Lauderdale, FL-based Media Design Associates (MDA) as well as Huntington Valley, PA-based Booyah Technologies in its home region of Greater Philadelphia. Hi Solutions is currently engaged in discussions with a number of new prospective acquisition targets with an expectation to close additional transactions in 2022.
