The Smart Home Division Mark of Excellence Awards recognize ground-breaking residential custom installation projects performed by professional integrators and are judged by an independent panel of industry experts. At the 2021 Mark of Excellence Awards, ListenUp was named Runner-Up in two categories.
ListenUp's Galbraith Project was announced as Runner-Up for the 2021 Custom Home of the Year. Located in Sedalia, Colorado with a spectacular view of the Rockies, the Galbraith Project is a total showstopper featuring stunning urban-contemporary design with Asian influences. Adjacent to the living room, powered doors open at the touch of a button to create a large indoor/outdoor living area. The deck offers a professional-grade grill and outdoor dining area, with a 43-inch outdoor TV that's fully weatherproof. Inside the house, on each side of the spectacular fireplace is a 65-inch Sony OLED 4K TV mounted on a lift so it can disappear completely into the ceiling when not in use.
Runner-Up for Specialty Project of the Year was ListenUp’s Lowry Project. The Lowry’s had already upgraded their Control4 control system with ListenUp when they had reached out to Senior Sales Consultant Dusty Groski to build the project’s unique outdoor entertainment system. The Lowry’s were interested in lighting, shades, audio and system control for their outdoor entertaining pool area. The pièce de résistance is the high tech pergola, which contains an 85-inch 4K UHD TV. “We were able to get a larger size than is usually available in the outdoor arena. The kids can float in the pool and it’s like a drive-in,” says ListenUp’s Dusty Gorski.
