With IT/Home Networking becoming more important every day for integrators, CEDIA is responding with two intense five-day Advanced Networking and Systems Integration Boot Camps.

The training will be held at CEDIA’s training facility in Indianapolis from July 22-26 and November 11-15. Early bird member attendance cost is $1250. Non-member attendance cost is $1625.

During boot camp, attendees will install, configure, and program multiple residential electronics subsystems into a unified home automation platform – all using a mobile device as both an entertainment source and system controller. Subsystems include A/V, HVAC, lighting, closed-circuit cameras, shades, doorbell, and more.

Prior to attending, dealers are recommended to take some CEDIA online training in the areas of:

  • Advanced home networking with VLAN and QoS
  • IP communication
  • Wireless network design
  • Residential network security for wireless and VPN applications
  • Control systems programming
  • Mobile devices integration (both as a controller and a wireless source)
  • HDMI
  • Subsystem communication and integration
  • Secure remote network access
