Who are CEDIA and why use a CEDIA Member? CEDIA (the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association) is an international trade organisation spanning three continents with a global membership of over 4,000 companies. CEDIA members are specialists in the integration of electronic systems into home environments. They partner directly with homeowners or collaborate with architects, interior designers, house builders, security experts, building services consultants and other specialists to maximise the lifestyle,


function, aesthetic and entertainment benefi ts of the integrated home. All CEDIA members agree to adhere


to a strict set of principles and ethics when they join the Association. Their commitment to service and professionalism in all elements of design and installation ensures that projects are completed to the highest standards. CEDIA also checks that its members are properly insured and have the right certifi cation and professional accreditation. In the same way that you would only use an architect who was a member


of the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) or an interior designer who was a member of the BIID (British Institute of Interior Design), then for the highest standards of design and installation on your integrated home project, be sure that you’re using a CEDIA member company. Likewise, if you act upon a referral from your architect, builder, interior designer or other specialist, then always check that the company you employ is a CEDIA member. Remember, CEDIA members are the


best informed and trained in the latest technologies, design, project management and installation techniques. CEDIA’s education programme runs throughout the year, with courses covering a comprehensive range of system design and installation, business and project management topics. CEDIA members are required to attend a specifi ed number of courses each year to maintain their CEDIA Certifi ed status. As a result, working with a CEDIA member is the best insurance you have that the fi nal system will meet your expectations. So, visit www.cedia.co.uk for


information on a CEDIA member company near you or call +44 (0) 1480 213744 to fi nd out how CEDIA can make living with technology easy and reliable, as well as discreet and fun to use for the whole family.
