(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone
Things are just starting to heat up, so why don’t we instead stay inside and listen to what’s going on in the residential space? Joining us today is Uncle Richie himself, co-host of A State of Control and Principal of Fregosa Design Rich Fregosa, CEO of Digital Delight and host of the podcast Digital Ramble JJ Canon, and Technical Director at Customised (also host of Digital Ramble) Kris Gamble as we dive into the latest stories surrounding the residential side of the AV industry.
Clare Controls introduces their new ClareOne Wireless Security and Smart Home Panel, distributed exclusively by SnapAV. This system will integrated with the backend of the management platform FusionPro. This has a hint of the DIY home automation in it, but is still something for integrators to be aware of. How does this panel stack against the other competition? Looking at the Smart Home space and how the market has evolved.
Mike Grubb writes in CE Pro about the 5 ways integrators can optimize system installations for remote management. Now more than ever, we are in a space that even as essential workers it is a risk to send a truck to a location for a client. How do we set up the systems to allow for remote management? What does that look like as a service for your business?
Azione Unlimited partners with both GOLFZON and Josh.ai. And as much as we could go on about golf simulator technology, this is more on the side of Josh.ai. This is their first time working with a buying group. This also opens up the discussion of voice products and touchless interfaces making their way in the AV industry amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Will this technology make a rise as we move forward?
