CEDIA 2018

In the ever-changing, ever-evolving, fast-paced home and business technology industry, when opportunities present themselves such as CEDIA (Custom Electronics Design & Installation Association), it's not only highly beneficial but important to attend and participate in. 

This year, like last, San Diego hosted more than 20,000 technology professionals and over 500 exhibitors. We were excited and fortunate to attend again. Thoughtfully touching nearly every corner of SAV, from Sales, Design Engineering, and Operations to Project Management, Client Services, and Technical Services, we received the opportunity to see new products as well as breakthrough innovations and participate in targeted training courses. 

Seeing and learning about cutting-edge technologies, first-hand, not to forget to mention having intimate one-on-ones with partners such as Séura, Lutron, Savant, Josh.ai, Nexus 21, Sonance, and Sonos, the experience is priceless. We can't forget about spending quality time with our manufacturer reps and then seeing and participating in activities with our fellow colleagues. It was a time, and experience, to remember!

Hands-on Training

Utilizing our manufacturer partners hands-on training's is highly beneficial to not only us, but our partners as well. We learn about the best practices to design, install, program products and systems, and in turn our partners learn more about us, our clients, and what is needed to create the most fruitful partnership possible.

At this training with Lutron Electronics, a leading manufacturer of energy-saving light, shade, temperature control and automation, we looked at hardware, we look at software, we learned about, and we determined what is needed to best suit our clients.

We train, we learn & we grow!

SAV is not only dedicated to finding & vetting the smartest & the best technologies & products available, once we do we train, we learn & we grow!

The experience gained from SAV's ongoing partner trainings is an extraordinary opportunity for professional development, not to forget to mention the introductions to advanced and new technologies we receive.

"One thing that really caught my attention is in the HCL (Human Centric Lighting) space. This emerging technology platform is amazing and has the potential to make a meaningful impact to quality of life for clients as well as potential to redefine the CI space role and responsibilities in regards to lighting packages and our involvement with these initiatives."
– Nate Dorr, SAV's Director of Security

Learning about technologies like this gives us with the ability to provide even deeper integration solutions for our clients on a more holistic (total home or business) level.

Thank you Séura, Planar SystemsLegrand, Vantage Controls and Sonance for the visit and the training's.

Live the Legendary Performance

Though we really didn't need to find and vet a company like McIntosh, because we already know of their quality, their standards, their history, and beyond all their passion, we are absolutely thrilled to be a partner now and just loved visiting and taking part in their extensive training program on location in Binghamton, NY last week!

Our President & Lead Technology Advisor Doing a Little Training

It’s always great capturing our president and lead technology advisor doing some hands-on training. Get ready for something new coming soon from SAV.

No, we’re not going to give it away, but we will give you hints… It’s technology that is forward-thinking, built to be seen, not heard. There will be precision in workmanship, engineered and designed to be beautiful, inside and out.

Collaboration & Team Work Result in Optimal Outcomes

From technology specialists and project managers to design engineering and client services, cross-functional team collaboration and team work is of the utmost importance at SAV Digital Environments, in turn helping to produce the most successful project outcomes. We greatly value this and enjoy spending time together visiting complete as well as in-progress projects as one team, witnessing not only our work come to life but seeing first-hand the results of our collaborations. 

“Primarily used as a platform to bring all of our departments together to see real results of all of the hard work we're putting in, individually and as a team, it is necessary to make sure we are putting out the best product possible and that each project, unique in their own right, receive just that." — Mike Rossmiller, Director of Operations, SAV Digital Environments

These "SAV on-site visits" are also a great reminder that behind every project there is a client, and our number one focus is the client... to deliver optimal results to each no matter the size or individuality of each. It is an intimate privilege that we're able to visit our client homes, during and after, discussing details of each unique environment we work on and what we can do to further better ourselves.

Tools of the Trade

At SAV's ongoing trainings, our technicians receive the opportunity to learn, and continue learning, how to use all of the different tools that we use every day in this trade. From terminating ends on all of the different types of cables out there, properly testing wires associated within our custom integrations, and learning what's old and what's new in our wire numbering system, to plans and procedures and so much more, technology progresses and so do we.
