    July 27, 2017

    Gone are the days when buying groups would meet only twice a year. Gone are the days when integrators and custom retailers were satisfied with economies-of-scale discounts. Today they want technical tutorials and business and sales strategy education. These are the initiatives that have kept Azione Unlimited busy this summer, even as the Azione team hustles to plan their n...

  • After Record-Breaking Year, Draper Pulls Back the Veil in Spiceland

    June 14, 2017

    It would be difficult to miss the sheer volume of new product announcements coming from Draper over the last six weeks.

  • Another Week, Another CEDIA Departure

    May 25, 2017

    I joked the other day to an industry friend that I should take a “screen grab” of the CEDIA website staff page. That way I could check it periodically to see if any more team members had left on their own or been shown the door. I was kidding, but now I think it might be a good idea.

  • Here’s the Motivation Behind Crestron’s $500 ‘Tax’ on Third-Party Devices

    March 17, 2017

    For some, the news harkens back to a heavy-handed “evil empire” image of “old Crestron” or simply “bad optics” from the control system purveyors in Rockleigh, NJ.

  • Savant Offers More Insight Into Changes

    November 17, 2016

    Rumors have been circulating a bit since Savant sent out an email to dealers explaining the changes to the structure of its sales team across the U.S. Some have speculated that the return of founder and chairman of the board Bob Madonna to CEO and the departure of William Lynch from that role may be a reaction to the seemingly tepid sales of the consumer-oriented Savant Remote, and that the c...

  • Can’t Keep Up with IoT? There’s a New Resource

    August 05, 2016

    In talking to Nicos Panteli, the co-founder and developer of Qioto, the website with the tagline “Discover Smart Home Solutions,” I felt like I was talking to any number of smart, engaging members of the CEDIA integrator (“technologist”) community.

  • Crestron’s CEO Clarifies CEDIA Decision: ‘We Don't Belong There Anymore’

    February 12, 2016

    Crestron’s president and CEO Randy Klein emphasized that his decision was based on the realization that CEDIA has become a broader show and that Crestron only wants to focus on the high-end part of the market.
