Time

Keynote: Amazon, Apple and Google: Friends or Foes to TecHome Building and Integration
Riding on the wave of strong consumer interest in voice control and leveraging their ubiquitous consumer brands, Amazon, Apple and Google are becoming major players in the home technology space. The question for builders, integration companies and hundreds of manufacturers who’ve been slogging it out on the frontlines of home tech for more than three decades is: Are they friends or foes? On the one hand their sexy user interfaces and marketing muscle are driving consumer awareness and adoption. On the other hand, their tendencies toward market disruption and industry sector destruction are scary as heck. We’ll debate the pros and cons with industry experts in this very timely and nearly essential keynote panel.
