In what's become emblematic of the CEDIA channel, this week's episode of HomeTech takes a decidedly split approach, focusing on equal parts pro and DIY technologies. After all, the differences between the two camps, at least from the casual observer's perspective, are becoming increasingly difficult to spot.
While our conversations cover a wide variety of topics, there is a theme that binds: companies and platforms will come and go, so choose your technology carefully. Amongst the topics covered are a few updates from the VIA Home closure, a great op-ed that reminds us when it comes to "custom" sometimes less is more, continued innovation from a bankrupt company, and much more.
As always we hope you enjoy the show! If you'd like to support our efforts to bring you more episodes like this one you could leave us a review on iTunes, or consider becoming a patron of HomeTech by visiting our Patreon page.
