#SmartHomeChat Recap – Tech, Trends & Insights

December 16, 2014

In the first edition of #SmartHomeChat we were joined by 30+ different users including media, custom integrators, fellow industry manufacturers and tech-loving consumers. We were excited to tweet alongside so many bright minds and share real, truly valuable information surrounding the evolution of today’s smart home. And a very special "thank you" to our fantastic moderator, Residential Systems Editor-in-Chief, Jeremy Glowacki. The conversation was certainly fast paced, but was chock-full of home automation information, testimonials and of course some humor.

Below we have compiled a high-level overview of the past week’s chat, including the questions and a snap shot of some of the great responses and interactions. To keep tabs on all things #SmartHomeChat, you’re encouraged to use the TweetChat tool which aggregates all tweets tagged with the hashtag; or simply search #SmartHomeChat in your Twitter search bar.
