Show Notes

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. We also learn about what's involved in growing your home security business, how to do it well and where the pitfalls might be. 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.

Where are DIY and retail brands at in terms of their smart home thinking and what role is there in their world for home technology integrators?

Can smart home technology help support independent living for longer for people in this age group and those who are less able?
