The course, entitled Integrating Technology into Residential Design, looks to educate delegates on the increased popularity of connected homes and how to integrate this technology seamlessly into any design.
“We are excited about including this CPD in our personal development offering,” says Rex Liddiard, marketing and events executive at BIID. “This is a subject that we keep seeing come up in designs for residential and commercial projects. We are often asked about smart homes, so it is great that we can now offer this course to our members to prepare them for these projects.”
Crestron argues more and more that designers are getting involved in technology-rich specifications within residential properties that need to be incorporated into interior design proposals.
Crestron says it is taking the opportunity to discuss the importance of planning early and explain the different ways designers can use automation to your advantage.
The session covers everything from entertainment technology, lighting, environmental control and security, to monitoring and managing a home’s energy usage.
Attendees are given advice and examples of how technology can offer increased lifestyle benefits and energy savings.
“By getting involved at an early stage, an infrastructure can be designed to allow for a connected home, making sure that it enhances the architecture and design, not hinder it,” says Nick Fichte, residential development at Crestron. “By teaching interior designers about the importance of technology, we can help prepare them for the projects they are almost certainly going to come across in the months and years ahead.”
