In the past few months while nobody was looking, Rockler.com quietly added a ton of home automation products to their online lineup. There’s no announcement on the site or in their RSS feeds, but if you look back though their new products page you’ll find a bunch of entries for security, surveillance, and access control products; audio/video products; lighting, appliance, and HVAC control; and even more unexpected products like shower heads.
To get the scoop, I gave my local Rockler store a call. They said they weren’t carrying most of the automation products in-store, but, like most of Rockler’s online products, my local store could order the home automation products and have them shipped to the store to save me money on shipping.
It sounds about as strange as Home Depot selling computers, but since it’s not diluting the selection of real tools and hardware at their stores, we say, “Why the hell not?” To see a list of all the home automation products Rockler.com carries, check under their hardware category — or just click the link below.
