Show Notes

On the road in Bristol, we're joined by Matt Zachrisson-Smith, Managing Director of Total Solutions and Owen Maddock, Principal of Connected Works and co-founder of the HomeTechGallery hashtag. As £1 million plus properties surge in Bristol and elsewhere around the country, we examine what the integrator's life is like outside of London. We also take a look at the recent media obsession with smart home security and ask if this is a problem for professional home technology integrators. Then, we talk in-depth about media rooms and how the industry can achieve a great customer experience in these increasingly popular spaces. Hear what Owen and Matt have to say and how they think integrators can collaborate to create media rooms that offer more. Recorded on location in Owen's house in Bristol (thanks Owen!), The Integrated Home is sponsored by Meridian Audio and is a Wildwood PR and Alfi Media production.

Time For Gaming

We're joined by Simon Gregory of integration firm, Cinema Rooms, and Rik Henderson, all-round gaming fanatic and Senior Editor at technology website, Pocket-Lint, to talk about how gaming might change the home technology business in a post-COVID-19 world. The UK is the 6th largest video game market in terms of consumer revenues, after China, USA, Japan and Germany. Approximately 37.3m people in the UK play games. Consumer spend on games was valued at a record £5.7bn in 2018 with consoles sales up 6.5% to £702m, despite no new consoles being released. But are these gamers a market for home technology professionals? In fact, should integrators be selling gaming rooms as a distinct concept to their customers, rather than as a bolt-on to their home cinema business? And, what gaming technology will change how integrators can deliver a great, immersive experience in the future? This episode was recorded before the current lockdown came into effect. The Integrated Home is supported by Meridian Audio, AWE Europe and Sony and is a Wildwood production. ...
