Crestron and Mr. Call Designs Create Beautiful Space that Balances Technology & Luxury at Architectural Digest Home Design Show

Design features seamless control of motorized shading, lighting, HVAC, audio, 4K video, and home security from Crestron touch screen controls and mobile devices

Rockleigh, NJ, March 20, 2014 - Crestron will showcase its home automation solutions at the 13th annual Architectural Digest Home Design Show® March 20 - 23, 2014 at Pier 94 on 55th Street at 12th Avenue in New York, NY.

Crestron collaborated with Jon Call of Mr. Call Designs to show that the latest home automation technology can live in harmony with an elegantly designed luxury living space. In the space, motorized shades, automatic lighting, climate control, security, door locks and AV, including 4K video distribution and display, are seamlessly integrated with minimal impact on the stunning d�cor.

Visitors will see how just one touch of a button can close the shades, adjust the lighting, and start a movie. They'll also see how they can use mobile devices to keep tabs on the home while away, from adjusting thermostats to locking and unlocking doors.

In addition to showcasing a full line of integrated home automation solutions, Crestron will spotlight its motorized shades feature Quiet Motor Technology™ to manage daylight without disrupting activity in a space, and adjustable light and shade zones for scene control and comfort. The controller includes backlit, custom-engraved buttons for highly visible, intuitive operation.

"Homeowners are often afraid that home automation technology might 'take over' their space," says Tom Barnett, Crestron Director, Residential Marketing. "Designer Jon Call created the optimal setting for us to showcase how our technology can disappear into any beautifully designed home to simplify the homeowner's lifestyle without detracting from the design."

Attendees are invited to drop by the Crestron booth (#146) at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show to see live demonstrations of home control in a luxurious, finely designed living room.

About Mr. Call Designs

A young designer with a savvy clientele, Call is embraced by the downtown (and Brooklyn) crowd, but his is not a sleek loft look. Rather, Call achieves a tailored take on classic style that is American in the broad, free-spirited sense of the word. Above all, Call aims to give his clients spaces that balance comfort with "the luxury of a room with personality." The name of the firm, a somewhat cheeky reference to the days when designers were known by Mr. or Mrs., embodies Call's spirit: he winks, rather than nods, at the past.
