Crestron is simply one of the biggest names in smart home technology. Founded over 45 years ago, it is also one of the longest established, but at the same time it has always been forward thinking. We visited the state-of-the-art Crestron showroom in London’s Chelsea Harbour to take a closer look at the tech. And while there, we were lucky enough to catch up with media relations director Petra van Meeuwen and residential account manager Nick Fichte for an exclusive chat.
Both Petra and Nick live and breathe home automation, so there are no better people to give us the low-down on everything to do with the technology that makes homes smart. In our series of interviews, we’ll be talking about Crestron’s role in creating a smart-home project, what visitors to the showroom can expect to find – and what it’s like to be an end user. Because as well as working for Crestron, Petra and Nick are both big fans of the technology and this really came across when we spoke to them. The other videos in this series will be rolled out soon.
