Catching Up with HomeKit and CEDIA on The Smart Home Show

The Smart Home ShowIt seems like I’m always talking about HomeKit on The Smart Home Show. This episode is no exception, particularly since the next wave of HomeKit devices is starting to swell. Will the next devices pique more interest and (perhaps more importantly) work more reliably, or are we starting to see a bunch of “me too” commoditized products?

Mike and I also catch up on some of my observations from CEDIA Expo since he missed the event this year. My most interesting picks? The direct-to-consumer Savant Remote stands out as an offering from a traditionally installer-focused company; Fibaro is soon releasing a swipe controller that can work through countertops; and Webee offers a unique TV-based home hub solution in a sea of otherwise undifferentiated product ecosystems.

You can find the episode at Soundcloud or in iTunes.
