Residential and Commercial Assimilation
Previously, the sides of the AV industry have been separated in category by being residential or commercial. However, in the last few years these walls have begun breaking down, leading to a sort of resimercial hybrid as AV systems develop. On this episode of A State of Control, we talk to residential integrators about that convergence, what goes into making custom solutions for residential clients, and the future of control systems in the home.

Control and automation makes the audiovisual world go ‘round. When commercial integrators and residential AV dealers talk about integration, the glue that makes it possible for various products to work together seamlessly is the control platform. Control programmers are typically one of the last AV pros to leave a job site. They are also one of the technical trades that interact with the clients.
Steve Greenblatt created and produces AVNation’s monthly look at the control and automation space. Greenblatt has been in the AV control and automation space for over 25 years. Steve has taught programming for a major manufacturer. Today he helms his own independent control and programming company, Control Concepts, out of New Jersey. Greenblatt is heavily involved with AVIXA, serving on multiple committees and helping write and facilitate several white papers.
