CEDIA, the global industry association for the home technology industry, announces a new community for Ring professionals within the association. The new initiative will grant Ring pros access to a carefully selected educational curriculum and a variety of member benefits.

“Our goal at CEDIA is to welcome innovation from all corners of the industry, which is why we’re so excited to work more closely with Ring to expand access to CEDIA benefits and trainings to pros who are making an impact on the growing residential technology space,” said CEDIA senior director strategic partnerships Ian Bryant.

For a limited time, Ring pros can join the CEDIA community as an individual member for $99 and access discounted educational opportunities through CEDIA Academy, a dedicated Ring pro portal, and exclusive webinar content. Ring pros will also be able to take advantage of the many benefits a CEDIA membership has to offer, including education and training, certification programs, in-person and virtual events, white papers, and more.

“At Ring, we’re committed to supporting pros and giving them the tools they need to succeed,” said Andrew Vloyanetes, general manager of installed solutions at Ring. “As homes become smarter and residential technology becomes more commonplace, customers expect more from their smart devices. We’re excited to work with CEDIA to provide educational content and other tools so pros can delight their customers and make their homes work harder for them.”

Ring and other Amazon products will be available through CEDIA’s Propel program, which connects CEDIA members to emerging trends, innovative technology, and special offers. All CEDIA members who order through Amazon business are eligible to receive up to 25 percent off Amazon Echo, Ring, and other Amazon products.
