If you recognize the name “Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA)” at all, you probably think of it as the trade show us home tech types geek out over every September. Or maybe you know a little more about the organization’s history of educating, vetting, organizing, and advocating for custom installers.
Unless you’re searching for a local CEDIA certified, there hasn’t been a whole heck of a lot of reason for the average home-tech-loving consumer to spend much time on CEDIA’s website, though — until now, that is.
The newly launched CEDIA.org (not to be confused with the oldly launched CEDIA.net) was designed and written to provide a “brand neutral, unbiased trusted source of information” for consumers — including DIY tech enthusiasts! — with a pretty comprehensive Home Tech Solutions section, where you’ll find a diverse array of articles on subjects like “Plasma vs. LED vs. LCD” and “Controlling Your Lights via Smartphone, Tablet or PC,” as well as an Inspiration Gallery full of beautiful tech installations broken down by room, style, size, location, theme, budget, and more.
