My journey into the entertainment tech industry was born out of a love of great films, great audio and great video. Our industry is changing though and we need to get ahead of these changes to make sure that we deliver the benefits technology systems can provide to property professionals and their customers. We have seen the advent of IoT and the cloud - both of which are going to have a fundamental impact on technology and its applications for residential developments, today and in the future. Now, is the time to capitalise on the efficiencies that our industry can bring and provide the enjoyment your customers expect.
