By the end of 2020, an estimated 12.86 billion smart home devices will be in consumer’s homes, making technology one of the fastest growing business opportunities for interior designers and custom builders.

Control4 Connects is a program aimed at bridging the gap between technology integrators and the design community through an introduction – both to the different concepts of smart home technology and local integrators within one’s community.

By the conclusion of the event, attendees will be able to answer the following four questions: What’s the difference between smart products and smart homes? What is true integration? How can technology help me stand out? And who can I connect with to help pull it all together?
