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.

All About Audio

We turn the spotlight on all things audio with the help of Pip Evans, the main man at London-based NV Integration and Barry Sheldrick, Sales Director at Meridian Audio. What are customers looking for when they listen to music in the home? Is it all about convenience or is quality making a comeback? What role does content have to play in the discussion? And, how can we persuade customers about the benefits of great sound in a media room and home cinema set up? We also look at two demo options for installation businesses without their own dedicated showroom space. Can a showroom collaboration with an interior designer work for your business? And, what are brands doing to support installers in selling their services? Make sure you also listen out for a second chance to enter our competition to win a Sony Home Cinema Projector, retailing at £5,000 from podcast supporter, AWE.
