This topic is not new, but it needs to be raised again if it is to gain traction. Property developers, architects, electrical contractors, audio visual installers and end users all need to keep networks and control systems in mind when designing and building homes.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a reality, connectivity is non-negotiable, and the availability of high speed bandwidth is becoming more readily available. So it is a priority, not a luxury, to build homes that accommodate the latest technology.

Crestron has taken the decision to open their own sales office in South Africa. This is part of Crestron’s international strategy of direct distribution in every region.
Electrosonic SA has been distributing Crestron products in Southern Africa for the last 20 years. It is sad to see such a long and fruitful relationship coming to an end, but as we all know, change is inevitable.
