Welcome to the

Smart Home & Buildings Association.

SH&BA is the UK's industry organisation and knowledge base for everything smart home - formed by, and for, those who live in, enjoy, use, design, and build them.

About Us

SH&BA is a forum for retailers, manufacturers, technologists and marketeers to present their systems, devices, innovations and ideas on the future of the market, with a number of expert panels covering all areas of IoT, smart construction, energy and lifestyle.

In a world more connected than ever before, SH&BA works alongside Germany’s SmartHome Initiative Deutschland e.V. (SHD) and the Fédération Française de Domotique (FFD) to form a European committee to share ideas, developments, and solutions across Europe.


Sharing ideas around the direction of technology, engaging in projects, and helping to identify business opportunities for the Smart Home market.


SH&BA is a forum that allows members to discuss ideas, exchange knowledge and promote the Smart Home to communities, industry, and government.


Helping people learn about the Smart Home and its market, enabling our members to hear and tell others about new technologies and exciting solutions
