11:05 AM - 12:00 PM (EST)

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) plays an integral role in our overall state of health and post-Covid, more people will have a greater awareness of how important it is to manage IAQ, minimizing the intake of chemicals, particulate, toxins and microorganisms like viruses.

Learn how the increased demand for wellness technologies as part of the smart home experience represents a tremendous opportunity for the CI channel as a vital component of healthy living.

Clean Water

Clean Water as Part of the Wellness / Smart Living Experience

Research indicates that most populated areas are confronted by significant human and planetary health challenges. One study shows that over 90% of bottled waters tested contain micro-plastics. Another concludes that much of our tap water in the U.S. contains PFAS (often referred to as Forever Chemicals), and water shortages are prevalent throughout the country.

The growing demand for smart water solutions represents an important opportunity for the CI channel. These intelligent technologies improve usage efficiencies and produce water for the kitchen, bath, and laundry that is better than bottled water quality. The use of water for food preparation, hygiene, health and for relaxation contribute greatly to overall wellness for the whole family. Learn how to bring these products and services to your clients.

The New Era of Sleep and Exercise

Everyone knows how important sleep and exercise are for a healthy lifestyle, but what happens when you integrate the home in a way that maximizes sleep and exercise routines?

With over 700 million persons on the globe over 65 and a projection of 1.5 billion by 2050 along with nearly 15% of the global population with some level of disability living in place is more important than ever.

A poll in the US by AARP found that voters of the age of 50 overwhelmingly wanted to age in their own homes. How can current and soon to be released technology help this group of the population live in place comfortably?

Selling the Smart Home as a Healthy Home

Now more than ever, both prospective and existing homeowners are highly motivated to live in a home that supports their health and wellness. Your clients must know that you are an expert in the design and implementation of wellness technologies that bring real value in the same way your other smart home solutions do.

We will highlight marketing strategies for CI integrators that focus on wellness technologies and the significant benefits they bring to your clients, and we will discuss how to educate your sales associates on products, installation techniques and key features that can transform your client’s home into the healthy smart living experience they desire.
