Electronic House: Cake Boss Bakes High-tech Christmas

by Lisa Montgomery

When we first visited Buddy Valastro, the celebrity baker on the TLC series Cake Boss, he just had his 9,000-square foot home automated (featured in the September 2011 issue).

Online shopping is transforming retail. These integrators show the way forward as 2013 CI Industry Leaders.

by Aaron Stern

Between the recession and the transformative rise of e-tail commerce, retail integrators have had to do a lot of adaptation in recent years.

First, the recession hammered the market and the number of new stores opening dropped sharply. Then, as the market was emerging from recession, online shopping morphed from a novelty to a mainstream reality, eating away at in-store retail profits — which integrators naturally depend on.

Despite these challenges, integrators like those listed here are finding a way to thrive in retail.

Commercial Integrator: 11 Best Installs Announced in 2013 Integration Awards

Our second annual look at some of the best installs from last year is a chance to marvel at — and learn from — the work of fellow integrators as selected by the editors and writers of Commercial Integrator and TechDecisions.
