We haven’t gotten to smell the news quite yet, but we’re probably working on it. Instead, listen to the latest news and stories coming out of the residential side of the AV industry. Joining us this week is Senior Vice President of Membership & Global Development for CEDIA Wendy Griffiths and Executive Editor of Residential Tech Today Jeremy Glowacki.
The deadline for CEDIA’s Smart Home Awards for Home Technology Integrator Projects has been extended to May 5. These awards are an important show for excellence within our space. With Wendy on the show, we discuss why integrators should submit their projects and celebrate their work in the CI channel.
We discuss what a Software as a Service model looks like in the residential space. While SaaS has been a feature known to integrators, it has been squarely in home security systems. Now that companies like Savant are getting into Saas, what does that mean for integrators moving forward?
Finally, we look at a piece about biophilic design in the tech space. After many of us were locked in our homes for the better part of two years, terms like human-centric lighting and biophilia were making waves to bring wellness and AV together. But those designs have really only taken off in the lighting space. Is there somewhere else that could benefit from the biophilia mindset?
