Course Description

This engaging introduction to the digital home is designed for anyone new to the residential technology industry or interested in the growing market opportunities. Students learn about the capabilities, benefits and technical infrastructure that deliver the integration of products and services available today and coming tomorrow. A thorough review of the different systems in the digital home is presented including: Structured Wiring, Communications, Entertainment, Home Networking, Lighting Control, Environment and Energy Management, Security (Protection, Health and Safety) and Integrated Home Control. This course is an easy-to-understand orientation to the current state of the industry and the market, as well as the technology subsystems that continue to change the way we live, work and play.

Informative text, detailed color diagrams, and engaging case studies make learning about residential technologies efficient – and enjoyable. Special In Depth articles provide deeper background and technical information on critical topics, and Project Management Tips coach installers on good management practices. An online Glossary provides ready access to definitions of key terms.

The course is divided into 11 training modules – each module ends with a quiz, and a comprehensive test at the end of the course allows students to demonstrate their newfound knowledge of residential technologies.
