San Jose, Calif., - October 31, 2017 – PHICOMM, the leading developer of smart home devices, announced today its official launch in the US consumer electronics market. The company will debut the first of its products to hit the US market on Amazon.com. 

PHICOMM was founded in 2009 in Shanghai, China and develops solutions for the consumer and smart home markets.

Industry veteran, Del Larsh (formerly with ViewSonic) will spearhead the US expansion. As a seasoned executive with a strong technology background that oversaw major accounts at ViewSonic such as Amazon, Costco, Wal-mart, Buy.com, Micro Center, and Overstock.com, Del is able to drive innovation and sales strategy and will be instrumental to PHICOMM’s growth in the US.
