Each year the Consumer Technology Association hosts the Smart Home Division Mark of Excellence Awards. The awards recognize some of the best residential and commercial custom installation projects performed by integrators and span eighteen product and six project categories.
Daihl ResidenceIn 2019, ListenUp’s very own Kevin Russell won Retrofit Project of the Year for his work on the jaw-dropping Daihl Residence. Kevin, the Lead Integrator on the project, has been working with Ed and Sallie Daihl for the past thirty years. Facing the Rockies, The Daihl Residence sits with a breathtaking view overlooking Buffalo Mountain and Devil’s Head lookout. The retrofit, located in Castle Rock, is a complete Control4 controlled project with two home theater areas; one downstairs and one in Ed’s office.
Kevin worked hard to make sure all wiring and proof-of-technology was well hidden from the naked eye and aesthetically integrated into the architecture of the home. Kevin owes much of the project’s success to Project Manager Justyn Born and the two Lead Technicians, Matt Andreasen and Nate Meyer. With Justyn living so close to the Daihls, he has made himself available on many last minute occasions.
Congratulations to the Denver Team for their hard work and dedication! See the full description of the project here
