CEDIA has been around for more than 30 years. In that time, membership has grown and evolved. The smart home technology industry is booming, and technological innovation continues to skyrocket – especially in the home.
In 2022, CEDIA established a clear mission and new pillars by which it serves its members. It also determined to use the phrase “smart home.” This term, known among the general public, will help build awareness of CEDIA with allied trades in a way that’s familiar to them. The subtle, descriptive change allows CEDIA to be a link between consumers, allied trades, and CEDIA members. It also helps people understand the significance of industry recognition such as CEDIA Smart Home Awards finalists and winners.
CEDIA’s mission is “To connect, empower, and champion home technology professionals and businesses that enrich our lives.”
The pillars, or ACE as they’re often referred to, are Advocacy, Connection, and Education.
