Smartphones As Home Control Devices CEDIA Issue White Paper

Titled ‘Mobile Devices in Residential Systems Integration.’ the white paper was developed after the custom install organisation saw a rise in the adoption of mobile devices as user interface, and the current challenge for ESCs is finding the most efficient and reliable way to incorporate mobile devices into their existing and new system designs. 

The white papers both examine and recommend best practices for the adoption of mobile devices as a core part of a company’s strategy for a converged internet-protocol ecosystem in the home. This first white paper focuses on why an ESC business needs an enterprise-grade wireless infrastructure strategy.

“Mobile device integration is a very real part of our industry’s future. It’s not going away,” said Dave Pedigo, senior director of technology. “Through these white papers, we hope to provide our members with guidance to navigate this emerging market opportunity.”

The new white paper is available free of charge for CEDIA members and $9.99 for non-members in the CEDIA Marketplace. Additional white papers on this topic will be released throughout 2012.
