This award recognizes an individual who has demonstrated innovative and visionary leadership in the smart home technology design and installation industry. Past recipients include some of the industry’s most brilliant entrepreneurs, inventors, engineers, and leaders.
The purpose is to recognize an individual who association members and the industry recognize as worthy of a Lifetime Achievement Award. This award is one of the highest honors an individual can receive. The program has highlighted some of the industry's most influential people; the first recipient was recognized in 1992.
Steve Moore decided against a career in architecture to launch a business selling high-end AV to music-loving homeowners nearly 40 years ago. He then left to set up SMC in 1993 and, inspired by a visit to CEDIA Expo that year, helped to launch CEDIA in the UK, running it alongside his own company from his London dining room, subsequently teaching at numerous CEDIA events worldwide.
SMC, like the industry in general, has grown enormously since then, and Moore has consulted for a wide variety of technology businesses, large and small, along the way. With strong successors running SMC, Moore is now semi-retired, and continues to support others operating in the connected home space.
This award is open to any individual from a CEDIA member company.
