FORTRESS Seating Introduces Smart Chair Technology During CEDIA 2016

FORTRESS debuts smart chair technology, showcases innovative advancements in custom seating

La Verne, CA & Dallas, TX (Sept. 6, 2016) — FORTRESS Seating, leader in home theater, media room, and corporate seating, announced today that alongside its most popular chair models, the company will be debuting exciting new Smart Chair technology during CEDIA 2016 in booth #5315.

FORTRESS Seating’s new Smart Chair technology seamlessly interacts with home automation and control systems. Featuring state-of-the-art human occupancy sensors, preset seating positions, and numerous other options. Not only can control systems be programmed to trigger automated responses based on human motion or movement taking place in the chair such as sitting or standing, the smart chair senses when an impingement occurs and will cease all motorized functions or movement. Representing a significant advancement in the seating category, FORTRESS Seating’s new Smart Chair technology will debut at CEDIA, featured in the Bijou model. Imagine how these smart, safety-oriented features could be integrated throughout the home, not just the theater or media room.


A design-oriented manufacturer with near-endless customization capabilities, FORTRESS has been providing home theater, lifestyle, and corporate seating since the late 1990s, stressing comfort, design, and quality. Sensing a void in the custom seating market, the company drew upon the experience it gained building commercial seating, giving customers the strongest theater and media room seating options available.
