About the Smart Home Industry

The People

Smart home professionals, or integrators, are technology experts and service providers for residential projects. They are designers of the connected home, delivering solutions for productivity, health, entertainment, and more.

Residential integrators are adept in a wide range of disciplines such as audio/video, networking, telecommunications, lighting control, system control and integration, user interfaces, and surveillance and security systems.

The Work

The professional smart home technology industry is made up of companies that design, manufacture, install, integrate, and automate smart homes and intelligent building products, systems, and services.

A skilled workforce is the lifeblood of the professional smart home technology industry making it imperative for companies to attract, develop, and retain skilled talent. As consumer demand for connected devices on a secure network rises, so will the need for integrators.
