This event will be presented as part of Boston Design Week, which seeks to increase public awareness and appreciate of all aspects of design, foster recognition of the vital role design plays in our lives and bring new audiences to a wide array of design industries and organizations.

The vision of Boston Design Week to encourage the public to explore all aspects of design. “With smart home technology becoming increasingly advanced and in-demand, there’s no better time to host such an educational event aimed at informing attendees on the benefits of and possibilities for smart controls. Whether it comes down to creating a more energy efficient home or added convenience for the homeowner, smart controls and systems are the future of home design and construction,” said Brianna Goodwin, President and CEO of Ver-Tex Construction. “We’re very pleased to be partnering with Yusen for this Boston Design Week event, which will be sure to inform and educate our audience on the various advantages and opportunities that exist for smart controls in the residential setting.” 

“Technology is continuously evolving in our industry. Over the past several years, the focus has been on the integration of smart home products. The goal with smart home products today is to create a more comfortable home experience along with ease of use and maximizing energy efficiency. Unfortunately, the average home owner is either intimated or not familiar with the various products and solutions that are offered in the smart home market today,” said Bill Hurwitz, Vice President of Yusen Controls. “A major objective of Yusen’s is to further educate the consumer on the solutions that are available and the benefits they deliver. We believe education is the critical component needed to accelerate the adoption of using smart home products.”
