Crestron Wins Two Arch-Tech Readers' Choice Awards

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, October 22, 2008 - Crestron Electronics was honored in two separate categories at the 2008 Archi -Tech Readers' Choice Awards ceremony held recently in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The Crestron CHV -TSTAT and the iLux™ CLS -C6M integrated lighting and shade control system were both recognized by industry peers, including architects, system designers, programmers and installers. The award winners were determined by an online poll of readers who voted for their favorite technology products of the year.
