ResiWeek 387: Made In America

The Password is Swordfish

Whether you’re celebrating 4th of July, Canada Day or just existing in general, the news never stops. It doesn’t know anything about tradition, which is why we are always dedicated to delivering the latest stories and information surrounding the residential side of the AV industry. Joining us this week is (it’s his first day!) D-Tools Data Solutions Architect & Evangelist Jason Knott, Account Executive for OneFirefly Kat Wheeler and Executive Editor for Residential Tech Today Jeremy Glowacki.

AVPro Edge is bringing a new manufacturing division to Sioux Falls. Even before the horrors of the great supply chain debacle and the subsequent 400 stories that came with it, some manufacturers were looking to bring their productions back to American soil due to tariffs and other events. Will this move from AVPro Edge be the start of other companies doing the same thing? We look at what it means to manufacture AV solutions in the US.

USB-C has been utilized in the past few years (as the name would imply) for universal uses in the tech space, from data to power. But some integrators are struggling to find benefits for AV solutions that run off said USB-C. What will it take to make this a useful endeavor for the CI channel?

Finally, we talk about securing the smart home space. Calling the Internet of Things more akin to the Internet of Threats may be a groan-inducing joke, but it has kernels of truth. Integrators are constantly having to ensure that their clients are making their networks secure and preventing any malicious solutions or software from causing harm. What more can they do to protect their customers?
