What It's About:

Providing the entertainment and convenience features that today’s buyers expect from home technology requires more than simply adding a pair of speakers and a smart light switch here and there. This Tech Byte will help you understand the science, engineering and design factors that play a role in the effective integration of these systems and how you can successfully plan for and incorporate tech into your homes. Demystify common misunderstandings about audio, video, control and lighting that create challenges to client satisfaction. By following the industry-recommended practices outlined, you will be better equipped to enhance your homes’ technology experiences and make these offerings a competitive advantage for your business.

What You'll Learn:

  • Explain fundamental principles of acoustics and why architectural speakers need to be installed in the right locations.
  • Describe how biology plays a role in video display quality and why size matters.
