PITTSBURGH–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#IBS–Power management company Eaton supplied the automation-rich and
aesthetically designed electrical solutions from the service entrance to

New American Home® 2017
and The
New American Remodeled Home® 2017

Through its participation in the National Association of Home Builders
(NAHB) showcase homes, Eaton is demonstrating the solutions advancing
home automation in new construction and improving the design and
livability of existing homes.

Both homes will be showcased during the 2017 NAHB International

“As home automation technology evolves, residential electrical solutions
need to continue to advance safety and connectivity, support quality
construction, and manage costs while being less disruptive
aesthetically,” said Rachael Elliott, director of marketing, Eaton’s
Residential and Wiring Devices Division. “When we started working with
the architects and builders for the New American Home 13 years ago,
Eaton supplied load centers and breakers that were primarily located in
the basement and garage. Today, our residential electrical solutions,
including wiring devices, are found throughout the home and provide the
freedom to create quality housing that is always on and meets the needs
of families across the economic spectrum.”

The New American Home and The New American Remodeled Home are produced
by the NAHB Leading Suppliers Council, of which Eaton is a long-standing
member. Since the inception of The New American Home in 1984, Eaton
worked with its designers and builders to demonstrate the latest in
innovative products in residential construction.

For this year’s show homes, Eaton supplied the electrical solutions
including both circuit protection and wiring devices. Eaton solutions
incorporated into the homes include multiple load centers and panels,
arc fault / ground fault circuit breakers and receptacles, lighting
controls, surge solutions to protect sophisticated electronics, and
other digital solutions to support and control home automation.
