Show Notes

In the second of our COVID-19 special episodes, we talk to Inspire AV's Ben Davies, also the man behind the Smarthomee Group on Facebook, to find out about the impact of the lockdown on integrators and their business. What should be the integrator's mindset? What steps can be taken to help you survive the current situation? And how can you spend your time productively to make sure you're in the best place for the upturn when it does arrive? Ben shares his thoughts with honesty and characteristic good humour, and also speaks openly about the positives integrators can find in the current situation. The Integrated Home is a Wildwood production.

Beyond the Bubble and Media Rooms without Compromise

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. ...

Integrators, Consultants and Project Managers

This show explores the roles of integrators, consultants and project managers on a connected home project. We have a representative from each profession to help us take a closer look with Dan Eades from integrator, Environ, Davy Currie from consultants, Infracore, and project manager, Ricky West from Regency Grove. How do these relationships work? What benefits do the disciplines bring to a project? And, is the dynamic more about collaboration or confrontation? We’re in the thick of Awards season, so we’ll also be checking out how you can the most of a statement project. Dan is put under the spotlight in our Hot Seat Q&A to tell us the best part of being an integrator and reveal which celebrity he is most often mistaken for. This episode is recorded in the Lutron Experience Centre in London. Our thanks to them and also to pod partners Meridian, AWE and Sony for their support in making the Integrated Home series possible.
