CEDIA Installer Award Winners Showcase Crestron Electronic Lifestyles

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, October 1, 2008 - The prestigious CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles Awards were announced recently at the CEDIA banquet in Denver, Colorado. When the votes were tallied, the world's most talented dealers were recognized for the most skilled, creative and professional custom installed systems. Forty nine winners in ten different categories were recognized. Thirty -nine of the forty -nine winners featured Crestron control solutions.


"We are very proud to be associated with the best dealers in the world," said Randy Klein, Executive Vice President of Crestron Electronics. "These installations really demonstrate what our industry, and specifically Crestron, can do in homes today. We are dedicated to providing our dealers with the best solutions, training and service so they can continue to grow their businesses."

The annual awards are presented in recognition of CEDIA companies that have demonstrated unique, innovative and top -quality home technology installations. Most of the winning residential electronic systems contractors turn to Crestron for their installations on a daily basis and were honored with recognition for exceptional installs with their Crestron solutions.

Two panels of experts were assembled to determine the award winners. Panelists consisted of members of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and CEDIA with scores based on technical merit and design/aesthetics.
