Innerspace Electronics Honored in 2015 CEDIA Home Technology Professional Awards
Westchester, Fairfield County & NYC, New York – November 3, 2015 – InnerSpace Electronics, Inc., New York’s leading resource for premium home technology solutions, is proud to announce that their award-winning Orange County, NY project has been recognized again this year, this time as a winner in the Best Integrated Home category of the 2015 CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles® Home Technology Professional Awards.
The CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles Awards Program recognizes the best home technology projects designed and installed by CEDIA member home technology professionals across seven categories. For the first time in the awards’ history, CEDIA announced a list of finalists a few weeks before CEDIA Expo to increase awareness and showcase the innovative work done by CEDIA members.
This InnerSpace Electronics’ Orange County, NY whole-home project also earned them Gold honors in the 2015 Electronic House Home of the Year Awards this past June for the array of custom smart home technology solutions installed throughout the entire property.
The InnerSpace team sets themselves apart from other custom integrators with their willingness to create truly custom programming solutions for each customer’s needs. To help these owners keep an eye on the massive property, InnerSpace installed 29 IC Realtime Cameras to monitor the 14,000 square-foot home itself, as well as the 142 acres of property surrounding it. The cameras’ motion sensors automatically signal the Savant automation system, which activates TVs inside the residence to display footage of the wildlife that roams the property, creating a “wildlife channel” for owners to view and playback later.
“We approached this project with an eager, open mindset, knowing that it was going to be challenging to take the owner’s brainchild and turn it into a connected home that meets all of their needs,” said Barry Reiner, owner and president of InnerSpace Electronics. “There isn’t a one-fits-all solution for all of these whole home projects; and our team is excellent at connecting the pieces in a unique way that yields results.”
The Savant home automation system also allows homeowners to control nearly every aspect of their commercial-grade lighting, heating, cooling and networking which unite with residential electronic door locks motorized shading and more. The owners can also control their completely hidden whole-home audio system with the touch of a button. InnerSpace was able to blend the Triad DesignerSeries speakers and Bowers & Wilkins subwoofers into the walls to keep a clean, consistent look throughout the home.
“Our team poured endless creativity and effort into this demanding project, and we are truly honored to have that work recognized by both EH and CEDIA over the past few months,” said Andrea Reiner, co-founder and vice president of InnerSpace Electronics. “Simultaneously being able to give the homeowner exactly what they were looking for and to be recognized by CEDIA as one of the top integration firms is extremely rewarding and sets a higher bar for our future projects.”
