Integrating BMS With Audio-Visual Technology In Residential Developments

Thursday 13th October 13:00 - 13:45

Training & Residential Developers Theatre

The role of the BMS continues to evolve. However, one area that’s frequently overlooked in large residential schemes is how it can be successfully and seamlessly integrated with audio-visual (AV) systems to create a fully functioning smart home that also meets the comfort, convenience and aesthetic demands of the occupants. This talk from CEDIA-award winning company Imperium Building Systems will explain why deeper integration between BMS and AV is so important in this type of project, the barriers to integration and how these barriers can be effectively overcome to the benefit of all parties involved.
