SH&BA Membership is open to any organisation or individual whose interests are in the area of Smart Homes and Buildings and systems, services and products for them. SH&BA has a strong interest in what people want and need, in the many market sectors feeding services to the home and the technology that makes them work and especially in Interoperability and an Interoperability Ecosystem. For 2017 we are increasing the Membership ratess as follows:
