Episode 150 - Stuck in the Middle

On this week's episode of HomeTech: Seth and Jason sit down for some spirited discussion about the forces at play in the middle market for home technology. Established companies like Savant, Crestron, and Control4 have formed a consensus and are "racing to the top" with their collective focus on luxury solutions. Meanwhile, inexpensive DIY platforms such as HomeKit are maturing at a steady pace. So, where does this leave the traditional CEDIA integrator? Tune in to hear our thoughts...

That plus... rumors of a new Sonos product, finally! - but will it be worth the wait? A truly novel approach to the TV experience from a startup called Caavo - but will it catch-on? Visio gets caught with their hand in the cookie jar. And just how much does a HomeKit-outfitted house cost?
