Homes Featuring Innovative Technologies, Products and Designs Earn Electronic Lifestyles Awards for CEDIA Members

DENVER (September 9, 2007) — The Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) has honored 45 of its members for excellence in the design and installation of electronic systems. CEDIA’s Electronic Lifestyles Designer Awards are considered the most prestigious awards program for the $10 billion residential electronic systems industry.

Work submitted for the Electronic Lifestyles Designer Awards is completed in consumer homes around the world in the following categories: home theaters, integrated homes, media rooms, hidden installations and more. Submissions range from $40,000 single-room projects to whole-house integration systems that carry price tags topping $3 million.

Winners were selected by two qualified panels which evaluated submissions based on both the technical merits and the design/aesthetics. The technical panel consisted of five CEDIA residential electronic systems contractor members and the design panel included members from the American Institute of Architects and the American Society of Interior Designers.

All of the submissions are published in the Electronic Lifestyles Designer Awards Book with color images and essay explanations of the projects’ challenges and products used. Award Books are available for $10 for CEDIA Members and $15 for non members at www.cedia.org/store, beginning Monday, Sept. 17.

The award winners will also be featured in an issue of CEDIA’s Electronic Lifestyles magazine later this year. Electronic Lifestyles magazine is a high quality publication that provides architects, builders and interior designers as well as consumers a great resource to learn about residential electronic systems.

Following is a list of all of the CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles Designer Awards winners.
