f you’re building a home you’ll appreciate the need for synergy within a project. Dealing with architects, interior designers and builders; hoping you have communicated your vision and expectations clearly enough. Then placing your dream in the hands of a myriad of subcontractors and suppliers while all you can do is sit back and watch it come together. It’s nervewracking to say the least! And these days there are so many different technologies that you need to consider. Broadband, telephone, electrical, home automation, home cinema, security, intercoms, air conditioning… six or more different companies trying to get everything to work in harmony, but only ever concerned

about their own area. Is it any wonder that building a home is one of the most stressful times of your life? Wouldn’t it make sense to deal with just one organisation? Someone who will take responsibility for all of the technology in your home and make it work together seamlessly. Someone who considers energy efficiency as part of the equation? Someone who provides total accountability, one point of contact and one phone number when you need it? Someone who delivers peace-of-mind and assurance by having the training and accreditation of a global industry association that specialises in technology in the home? That someone is a CEDIA Certified Member!
