The Crestron Integration Awards recognize the best home automation installations in the world. DSI Entertainment Systems won Crestron's "Most Creative Graphic User Interface (GUI)" in 2008 and "Most Extreme Makeover" award in 2006.

DSI Entertainment Systems was recognized for innovative design and installation for combining a media room home theatre system, a lighting control system, whole house audio, central video distribution system, climate control, security, and pool/spa controls into user -friendly Crestron home automation controls. The homeowners and their guests now have intuitive control all of the home's subsystems, adding convenience, safety, and energy savings. Easy control is offered from both sleek in -wall touchscreens and handheld "roving" remote controls.

Says Eric Thies, CEO of DSI Entertainment Systems, "Everybody in the company is committed to delivering world -class systems but this Malibu Colony project was a labor of love for all of the staff that worked on it.

Besides ultimate convenience, another benefit of a home automation system lies in the ability to save energy. A favorite "Green" feature DSI Entertainment Systems regularly programs into their clients' homes is a 'Goodnight' button that shuts off all audio/video systems, sets back the thermostats to an energy -saving mode, shuts off all lights, and arms the security system. A 'Vacation' setting can likewise put all of the home's thermostats in an idle state to further conserve energy, and even have the home's lighting control randomly cycle some of the interior lights to give any would -be intruders that the home is occupied.

Crestron Integration Awards are judged based on meeting client objectives, quality of work, level of integration, ease of use and creativity. Award winners represent the very best our industry has to offer in custom design and installation.
