Integrators everywhere are building more robust networks and helping customers shift toward using technology for "zoning" areas where they work, live, and play within the home. Those are a couple of key takeaways from CEDIA Interim Co-CEO Giles Sutton’s recent appearance on The Peggy Smedley Show.
"With technology, you can change the whole feel of a room," Sutton told Peggy Smedley, host of the IoT-focused podcast. Sutton says this zoning doesn't strictly mean installing a home gym or dedicated home cinema, it also encompasses a variety of environmental aspects of any space that can be changed with the right expertise and technology: anything from light color and temperature adjustments to high-resolution projection systems, serving as a transformation portal to multi-use rooms that convert with the push of a button, and more.
Additionally, Sutton touched on topics including augmented reality (like CEDIA Propel partner Immersive Gym), human-centric lighting, wellness-focused technology backed by artificial intelligence, and the shifting balance between customer needs, integrator abilities, and design/build partner collaborations.
