As CEDIA continues to strengthen its connections with government bodies to influence the residential technology agenda, it recently joined the UK government’s cross-party public policy think tank, Policy Connect. CEDIA is an associate member of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Assistive Technology, participating in the Smart Homes and Independent Living Commission.
The Commission’s latest report “Smart Living for Independent Living: Putting People in Control of their Lives” is now published: stop by the CEDIA booth at ISE 2022 to read a copy or discuss the findings, which include:
- Developing better housing planning policies at national and local authority levels that make the most of the range of available residential technologies
- Building technology training and skills development across the health and social care workforce
- Supporting disabled and older consumers to purchase smart technology products, systems and services through improved advice, information and hands-on assistance from retailers and other providers.
