Details Matter

It sure feels like a giant international trade show is looming over the horizon. With that in mind, we’re focused on the biggest stories for the residential space today. Joining us is Aaron Rozanski from Vanco, and Steve Greenblatt of Control Concepts as well as host our own A State of Control.

We start with a quick shout-out to James Chen, Stuart Tickle and Alex Capecelatro. Tickle and Chen were added to CEDIA’s Board of Directors, and Capecelatro has been appointed as the chairperson. Sounds like we need to get them on to see exactly what all this means for the organization and the industry at large. But for now, we move forward!

Henry Clifford starts off talking about how to learn from LEGO. If you’re a parent or just a child at heart, there’s a good chance your holiday had some amount of LEGOs involved. Or a Gundam model kit if you’re like our editor. Clifford finds parallels between these and AV projects, and how you can know when you’re truly done.

Trade associations are urging the FCC to keep the program voluntary and to educate consumers on what this program is for. We look at what this means for at least the North American market moving forward.

We jump right into the middle of the second part of a series about making the resilient smart home. Jay Basen looks at what solutions can be beneficial during severe weather. But since this is a very tech-based industry, it’s hard to do anything without power. What can integrators get from this article?
