New! Ultimate (Searchable) Guide to Home Automation at CES 2016, 100+ Pages

100+ pages of home automation, IoT, security and the smart home right here, with full text of the presentation.


CE Pro has already posted earlier editions of Julie Jacobson's Ultimate Guide to Home Automation at CES 2016 … a few times. But now we're fielding this question all the time: “Am I in the guide?”

So we're now offering the guide again, this time with the full text of the 100-plus page presentation in one giant scroll so you can find yourself fast in a simple search.

If you're in the document, you'll see the corresponding page number for your mention. Click on the number to see a static image of the page. For best results, however, jump to the page in the embedded presentation for a more interactive, clickable format.

The new cover page of the presentation is a lie. You don't have to download the pdf guide to use the embedded links. You can click from the embedded presentation.
