From The Editor’s Desk pages 16-17 Hello, Goodbye Change is good Change is good. Here at EI, we love seeing change. It keeps us all moving in the right direction, brings new ideas, fresh perspectives and innovative solutions. That’s why I’m delighted to be the new editor at this exciting time in this ever changing industry. So it’s a warm hello from me and a bon voyage to the illustrious Daniel J Sait, who after many years behind the helm, is moving onwards and upwards in his new role as our editor-in-chief. I’m thrilled to start working closely with key experts within the smart building and home automation industry to identify future tech trends, showcase new products and offer insights on the latest cutting edge technology. Over the coming months, I’ll be delving into the core topics of our sector, ensuring that EI remains the go-to guide for all things install. I’ll be working out what enthuses installers, which products to look out for and identify which tech is great but merely fad, or game changing and here to stay. This month we bring you a treasure trove of technological delights. Not only do we have loads of in-depth industry advice from our ravishing regulars but several delightful case studies, including a super car, on display in a swimming pool, which in turn is on display in a living room. Lavish or what? In our features, we answer whether online training is on the rise, what inspires the newest styles in home cinema seating design and how to protect wireless networks from fiendish forces.
