CE PROFILE
Global Wave Integration
" Talking to a lot of architects,
integration is still new to them.
So to talk about wellness ... it's still early
on, but I definitely feel that it's going
to have traction. " -Kyle Steele
biophilic materials like the paint selection and flooring, Steele
notes. Meanwhile, Global Wave Integration's dive into wellness
enabled the company to be part of a recent nearly $24
million " wellness estate, " as the architectural magazine Dwell
describes the Santa Monica property listing.
Among the myriad features in that spec project are circadian
lighting facilitated by the Josh.ai-controlled lights/
shades, air and water purification, and a " resort-level spa/
wellness center " that includes an aromatherapy shower
among other goodies.
Global Wave is also working with the International WELL
Building Institute on certification for its showroom building.
He says the company has received " innovation " points with
its clean air/clean water solutions, and is working to try and
earn credit for using Sonnen's intelligent battery storage/
backup as " clean power. "

" We're working with them to get that actual part of the
standard, because we have solar and we want to showcase the
whole [sustainable] chain where we have solar, battery backup,
energy automation tied into our giant Crestron display
dashboard of air quality, how we're managing the power, how
we're off the grid, " Steele explains.
He adds that when it comes to wellness and solutions like
HCL, even in trendy Southern California the company is still
working on the pitch to consumers and other trades.
" Circadian rhythm? Don't say that, they don't know what
it is, " Steele says with a chuckle. He says recently an architect
came to the showroom and was blown away, unaware of what
was possible or that an integrator can sell something design-related
like high-end shade fabric.
" Talking to a lot of architects, integration is still new to
them. So to talk about wellness ... it's still early on, but I definitely
feel that it's going to have traction. "
Home Health Tech Next Untapped Opportunity
Beyond wellness, Steele believes the custom industry is very
well positioned to impact the aging/living-in-place category.
He says the initial interest came from a client walkthrough of
an 8,000-square-foot, award-winning project in which Global
Wave had decked out a custom Crestron panel with various
widgets popular at the time like monitoring traffic and weather
and early voice capabilities.
" She said, 'It would be really cool if this touchpanel could
give me insights on something like my health,' " Steele recalls.
" I thought, wow, that's really powerful. "
The wheels started turning on combining voice commands,
automation, sensors, alerts and the like to facilitate today's
increasing demand for aging-in-place health tech that he
feels is a huge untapped integrator opportunity.
The overall effect of embracing emerging tech could help

Global Wave grab some of that money other integrators are
leaving on the table. Steele can envision sister companies
focused on each as one potential method the integrator
can address these growing opportunities and feed a central
core of service and RMR. FutureCare, a name for the home
healthcare sister company, would take a path Steele is familiar
with having taken it to creating Global Wave, and he sees
three others including wellness and education. " All of these
companies will have the same kind of structure, and that core
is key, " he says.
These rogue wave integrators are disrupting the industry,
and that's also something Steele can relate to since defensive
peskiness was the hallmark of his dad's play ( " When I was a
ballboy [in the '80s, future Hall of Famer] George Gervin told
me my dad used to give him nightmares, " he says). Kyle Steele
says his dad's career is just a testament that someone from
a small Midwest town can live his dream job with the right
effort. Global Wave might not be a professional recording
studio, but it's turned into a dream career. CE Pro
