The Continental Automated Buildings Association name change reflects a better representation for the smart home and intelligent building industries.
The Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA), an international not-for-profit industry association dedicated to the advancement of the connected home and intelligent building technologies, will now be referred to as the Association for Smarter Homes & Buildings, or ASHB (pronounced “ash-bee”).
“Our new name better reflects today’s smart home and intelligent building industries and our vision for the future,” says the association’s Board Chair Brian Ensign from Superior Essex Communications.
“It honours our history while building awareness that we have always represented and will continue to represent the industry and market for intelligent systems in both commercial and residential structures.”
Supporting the smart buildings and homes market since 1988, the association’s mandate remains unchanged: to empower connectivity among people, spaces, and technology to deliver a more livable, sustainable, and efficient connected world.
The group will continue to serve the smart buildings industry through collaboration among its over 350 member companies.
“As smart building features move from specialty to necessity, opportunities are opening up across the connected homes and intelligent buildings market,” says ASHB CEO, Greg Walker. “Our Board and staff have worked hard to boost growth during this exciting time, which has included finding a name that better reflects our pivotal role in growing knowledge and thought leadership across the breadth of the industry.”
