Guest commentary: smart home opportunities

CEDIA interim co-CEO on growing trends for residential integrators

“Early on in the pandemic, Wim de Vos, the brains behind the Spanish firm Genesis Home Technologies noted something interesting,” explains Giles Sutton in an article for our sister publication Twice.

de Vos said that he’d looked back at CEDIA’s recent research and reports [2019 and 2018, specifically] and noticed trends – more robust networking, more cybersecurity – that hadn’t changed. The only change, according to de Vos, was that those trends are accelerating.

Sutton continues: “As the world (and especially North America) starts to emerge from more than a year of Covid, those trends have begun to crystallise into opportunities for integrators. Here are three I’m paying attention to:”

The Big Guns Want to Play With Each Other – and Integrators, Too

The Immersive Space is a Thing

“Wellness” Comes in Neat Packages, Too

To read Sutton’s thoughts on the three trends in full, head over to Twice, here.
