Go Outside, Touch Grass
It’s time to get the latest news from the residential side of the AV industry and discuss it with some experts in the space. This week joined by CEDIA’s Global President & CEO Daryl Friedman, as well as Principal of Fregosa Design Rich Fregosa.
CEDIA Expo is returning to Dallas in 2022, with Registration opening on May 17. Emerald recently hit success with the Kitchen & Bath Show (KBIS) this year, CEDIA expects this to be a strong return to the physical space for residential integrators. And we just happen to have the CEO of CEDIA on our show, so we get to ask directly what a success looks like for them when it comes to this show.
Last month was the inaugural Lightapalooza show. As you might expect from the name, it was a handful of days dedicated to classes and education surrounding the residential lighting space. It is a vertical that one Matt Scott is very active about, so it’s only right we take a look at lighting and what integrators should focus on before they dip their hands into lighting.
Finally, we look at the landscape of remote access control and what Bluetooth technology can do for the space. Keycards and access solutions are at this point classic parts of an office space, and in the past decade remote access in a similar vein has started to make its way into the home. But rather than worry about having your key on hand, why not focus on the one device that is almost guaranteed to be on your person, the smartphone? Looking at this space and the possibilities added by Bluetooth solutions.
