The Z-Wave Alliance, a standards organization dedicated to advancing the smart home, has developed a line up of education sessions that will be presented at CEDIA Expo 2023 as part of the CEDIA Education Conference Program.
The industry organization states the three sessions will help attendees analyze new market opportunities, while learning about the latest protocols that define the smart home landscape.
“CEDIA Expo provides an amazing platform for dealers to learn about the technology and trends that will impact the industry both now and into the future. We’re thrilled to be able to share our expertise and help dealers consider new verticals and business models that they may not have considered previously,” comments Mitch Klein, executive director of the Z-Wave Alliance.
