CEDIA is taking its CPD instructor course, “Designing Integrated Homes Ready for the Future,” to Sansepolcro, Sicily on 16th July 2014. 

The integration of home technology has significantly risen in recent years. In Italy, the world’s heart of design and culture, it is more important than ever for design, architectural and construction professionals to be able to advise clients on the benefits of home automation, systems integration and structured wiring. This is why CEDIA is bringing the free, one-day seminar “Progettare Abitazioni Integrate Pronte per il Futuro“ to Sicily. 

This free to attend COI (CEDIA Outreach Instructor) course has been specifically designed to enable professionals within this sector to maintain and improve professional standards, to embrace evolutions in technology and be able to confidently talk about home technology and deliver the full, expert service these clients expect. Acquiring a CPD approval ensures universal recognition amongst industry-professionals alike. 

This course aims to ensure that homes are usefully connected internally and externally to electronic and data services for the foreseeable future; to provide an understanding of the basic techniques and the terminology of Custom Installation; to reveal what's possible in home electronic design; and to ensure that architects, designers, specifiers and developers know who to ask when they need help in a particular area.

To support the event, CEDIA has also released the new “Guida Alla Tecnologica Domestica,” the Italian version of CEDIA’s “Home Technology Guide for Architects and Designers”. This brochure helps architects and designers understand how home technology solutions can enhance their projects and the lifestyle of their clients.  It outlines the key electronic technologies which CEDIA members can integrate seamlessly within the fabric of each and every home. These include whole-home distributed audio, 3D and HD TV, home cinema, lighting, HVAC, security, data networks and other sub-systems.
