After a successful event at the Cornflake showroom in July, CEDIA’s third ‘Designing the Connected Home’ event will take place at the Ideaworks Experience Centre in London on Thursday 19th September.

To create a more compatible process, the event is aimed at architects, interior designers, and property developers to give them the opportunity to learn more about smart home technology and how it can be integrated into interior design. 

The event will feature a CEDIA CPD presentation entitled ‘Designing the Connected Home’, followed by a home cinema demonstration in the private cinema room.

There will also be a detailed tour of the Ideaworks showroom, including the user interface and keypad room, window shading room, specialist lighting room, and daylight space showing many techniques for bringing light into basements. 

The ‘Designing the Connected Home’ CPD is accredited by the Royal Institute of Architects (RIBA) and the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID). It will explore the design and installation of technology in the connected home, as well as explaining why good design is so essential and the possibilities for integrating technology in future projects. 

By the end of the CPD, attendees should have a greater understanding of why architects should discuss technology with their clients and the possibilities for technology in projects. 

Ideaworks, an integrator and CEDIA member, has been operating in the industry for more than 30 years. The company works closely with designers and architects to deliver installations in luxury homes, yachts and venues. 

Its dedicated London Experience Centre is a collaborative space which brings together a wide range of products and services to allow visitors to demo the technology first-hand.

Attendees to the CEDIA event at Ideaworks can enter a competition to win a private movie night at the Ideaworks cinema for four people by giving in a business card on the day. 

The event will take place twice over the course of the one day. The sessions will be 2-4pm or 6-8pm on 19th September.
