In this month's show, we're joined by Rob Sutherland, Principal at London-based integrator, Inspired Dwellings, to look at how his business has evolved to meet technology changes, customer expectations and market opportunities. Then, as BBC Radio's "The Archers" namechecks multi-room audio as a technology 'must-have', we talk about smart homes in the media with two experienced, consumer-facing journalists - freelance writer extraordinaire, Chris Haslam and Jonathan Margolis from the FT How To Spend It.

This show is recorded in the Mountbatten Suite of Admiralty Arch. Thanks to our venue hosts, Prime Investors, and to our sponsors, Meridian Audio.

How big an opportunity is home security for technology integrators? A home burglary happens in the UK every 106 seconds. The Office for National Statistics puts the average cost of a residential burglary in the UK at £3,030, and more than one-third of that is the emotional cost to victims. Experts also agree that we are likely heading for an increase in property crime, driven by economic desperation and the stress associated with long-term unemployment. In this episode, we talk to two integrators who work extensively with home security, Steve Moore from SMC and Michael Glarvey from Luuxx Audio Visual.

The Integrated Home Podcast is supported by Ring X Line, Distributed by Meridian, AWE Europe and Sony. We are a Wildwood production and we support Together for Cinema. ...
