CARLSBAD, Calif., Jan. 8, 2023 – Nice, a global leader in Home and Building Management solutions, is proud to announce the HR40 Multifunction Remote Control was recognized as a 2024 CES Innovation Award Honoree.

This year’s participation in CES underscores the company’s commitment to advancing its Home and Building Management solutions to set the industry standard for home automation.

It has been a year of transformation and growth for Nice as the company focused on expanding its footprint in North America by converging its robust product portfolio under one unified brand.

In 2024, Nice will begin its next phase of rebranding with the convergence of Linear Access and Surveillance.

"Not only did we unify our existing brand and product lines but we also showcased the innovation and industrial design principles from Nice that will drive future growth as we continue expansion of our smart home portfolio. The creation of the Home Management Business Unit also lays the foundation for global synergies and more advanced, integrated solutions in 2024 and beyond."
