Because doesn’t all of that new technology sound AWESOME?! But in all seriousness, we’re going to do more than oogle at the latest and greatest gadgets.
We will be going as members of the press. We’re going to be interviewing as many companies as we can to learn about the newest products and trends affecting the world of home automation. We here at Global Home Automation want to make sure we’re up on the latest technology so that we can incorporate it into our company and offer it to our clients.
Our assortment of hosts and co-hosts will be creating videos documenting our CEDIA 2013 adventures and interviews which we will be uploading to our YouTube Channel and our Website for your enjoyment.
There are a few companies in particular we are excited to chat with. They include Acoustic Innovations, Control4, and Lutron. So who are they, and what do they do?
