Why it Pays to Ensure Your Home Automation Installers are CEDIA Certified

October 27, 2017 | Comments

CEDIA is an organization held in the highest esteem as the respected governing body for all manner of companies involved in home automation installation.

If you're thinking of investing in new smart home technology, here's just a few reasons why it pays to ensure that your home automation installers are certified by CEDIA.

A Name You Can Trust

You wouldn’t hire a plumber or a builder that didn’t have some sort of industry recognition, would you?

After all, how would you know that they were reliable, trustworthy, and equipped to do a good job?

The same goes for the company you choose to carry out your home automation installation. CEDIA members must meet strict criteria for customer service and reliability, so if your installer is certified, it’s a good sign that they can be relied on to deliver quality work on time and on budget.

Award-Winning Home Automation Installers

Each year, CEDIA recognizes outstanding achievement in home automation installation at the annual CEDIA awards.

Where possible then, look to work with a home automation installer that has won (or at least been shortlisted for) one of these awards.

Why? Because it means that not only are you working with a company that can guarantee quality, but also one recognized as among the very best in the industry.

Expertise in The Very Latest Smart Home Technology

CEDIA regularly provides world-class training and education for its members on all aspects of home automation, including the very latest innovations and industry standards.

As such, no matter which leading brands you decide for your home, and no matter how new your chosen products may be, your installer will be well-equipped to help you use them in transforming both your home and your lifestyle.
