Social media is a breeding ground for lots of unsavory things, but every so often something exciting and decidedly “good” comes from it. In this case, a bunch of smart home industry leaders have banded together to start National #SmartHomeDay on November 3, 2018.
On #SmartHomeDay, companies like Crestron, Origin Acoustics, Rayva, Josh.ai, Barco Residential, TruAudio, Control4, Tym, Restrepo Innovations, and The Tech Reps will be participating in a joint Facebook live video stream.
The founding member brands will take 10 to 20 minutes each to share their ‘origin story’ and an overview of their products, according to a press release.
In addition, during the livestream custom installers will provide tips for creating a successful smart home.
On-air hosts, Matt Montgomery of Tym, Michael Restrepo of Restrepo Innovations, and Rob Skuba of The Tech Reps will be onsite at the Rayva showroom in New York to introduce each brand segment and moderate questions and answers with viewers.
The live video feed will be viewable via National Smart Home’s Facebook page, beginning at 10:00 AM Eastern and lasting several hours.
“This unprecedented Facebook live is a way for brands and dealers to speak directly to homeowners,” says Matt Montgomery, co-founder of Tym. “Knowing what’s out there and what’s possible will help them make informed choices for their own home.”
“Rayva’s mission is to delight and inspire people by transforming the home entertainment experience through immersive theaters and relaxation spaces, bringing families together,” says Vincent Bruno, CEO, Rayva International, LLC.
National #SmartHomeDay is being sponsored by NationalSmartHome.org, a website that provides homeowners with free resources to learn about current tech standards, terminology, and more.
“The community at NationalSmartHome.org engages with homeowners and provide answers to important questions they have and that’s very important to us at Rayva,” says Bruno.
“With participation from iconic manufacturers, suppliers and dealers NationalSmartHome.org will provide a positive, no-judgment zone to answer homeowner’s questions and bring awareness to our industry,” says Rob Skuba, owner, The Tech Reps.
