SmartHouse Integration, based in Sarasota, Florida, has improved upon last year’s success by taking home three 2014 CEA Mark Of Excellence Awards for installations that include ELAN g! systems. The awards were presented at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. According to SmartHouse Integration President Mark van den Broek, the awards are as much an honor as they are recognition that home technologies are helping homeowners and providing more comfortable living environments.
“I’m very excited to win these Mark Of Excellence Awards, and they stand as proof that when smart design and smart home technologies come together, anything is possible,” he said. “I work closely with each customer and their homebuilder to design and install systems that provide simplified living and peace of mind without intruding on the home’s aesthetic. All the wires and electronic components are always hidden, tucked away in a closet or storage room, and the entire home or media room can be operated from an iPhone, iPad, Android phone or ELAN touchpanel or remote control.”
SmartHouse Integration took the prize in the categories of Health and Wellness Project of the Year and Home of the Year up to $50,000 for a home installation dubbed “The Pearl”, which has been featured in Sarasota Magazine and Electronic House Magazine. The company also won the category of Home Theater/Media Room Project of the Year up to $50,000 for its “House on the Bay” project. Both installations were completed in 2013.
SmartHouse Integration has been a staple of the Mark of Excellence award in recent years, earning one award in 2009, two in 2011, one in 2013, and finally three in 2014. Six of the seven awards were given for projects that included the ELAN g! system. This year’s award winning projects are detailed here and here.
