The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has signed a partnership with HGTV to build high tech smart homes. Using CEA’s TechHome Rating System (THRS), HGTV has built the first ever high-tech smart home, that has the infrastructure in place to support current and future digital needs, says the company.

The HGTV Smart Home was built to meet CEA’s TechHome Gold Rating, which provides a whole-house network that distributes audio, video, data, telephone, television, home automation and security signals into multiple rooms.
