Casaplex Wildcat, 2017 North American Crestron Home Technology Award winner

There are smart homes and then there are smart homes, and Crestron is here to honor the latter. On Monday, October 16, the electronics company announced the winners of the 2017 North American Crestron Home Technology Awards, which honor unique applications of, what else, Crestron technologies in the home. Sure, you may have Alexa-enabled devices in your living room, or Philips Hue lightbulbs in your bedroom, but the households that these awards are celebrating practically live and breathe connectivity (not to mention size and scale).

“Our brand-new North American Crestron Home Technology Award program recognizes the cutting-edge projects that exceeded customer’s expectations,” Crestron vice president John Clancy said. And truly, these winners are, in a word, excessive. Here’s a look at the 2017 Crestron Home Technology Awards.
