Somebody Ought To Open Up A Window
Hopefully this episode of ResiWeek doesn’t get too meta. Regardless if the wall is of a philosophical media nature or a literal one, we are here to discuss the latest news coming out of the residential side of the AV industry. Joining us this week is Executive Editor for Residential Tech Today Jeremy Glowacki and Editor for AVNation as well as self-proclaimed eternal greenhorn Mitchell Toolen.
We start off discussing the nomenclature that is the “Smart Home”. When it comes to integrators, the word we come up with to describe the home system is fittingly enough “integrated”. But for many consumers and the general public, it has been shortened to smart to describe solutions working in the home. But how much of that is true rather than overestimated due to media depictions of smart technology? How can we be honest about the power of our home systems without letting the client down?
Next we discuss a study from MDPI concerning air quality compared to the office and the home. It was found that fine particulate matter (PM2.5) was found in higher amounts in the home compared to the office. What does this mean for those working remotely? Does this set of data become something we can show to clients and cause action? In a similar avenue we look at Airthing’s monitors for the home space and what it means to measure your home environment.
