In the space of 3 generations, the changes in the way we live and work have altered dramatically. Lifestyle was a description of health. It is now a description of how you live your life. In his funny and informative talk, Iain explains how technology has drastically changed our lifestyles by walking us through the past, present and future of smart tech in the home.

Iain Gordon has been working within the electrical contracting industry since 1985 and at 28 he started his first business. He speaks regularly about the future of buildings, and the methods required to ensure future requirements are able to be met without the need to change the way a building has been provisioned in the outset. Key technologies are building automation, data networks, security and lifestyle technology improvements.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
