About the CEDIA Awards
The prestigious CEDIA Awards celebrate excellence in home technology design, installation and integration across the globe.
Setting the standard for industry professionals across the CEDIA industry, these stunning projects are the creme de la creme of smart home installations.
Each installation category is judged by a panel of industy experts to ensure the highest standards of scrutiny for each and every entry. Additional sub-categories are judged by an Architectural Panel, comprised of experts drawn from the worlds of architecture, interiors, property, IT, and home technology journalism.
Entrants compete and are recognized within their region, Americas, EMEA or Asia Pacific, based on their primary location. Regional winners from Home Cinema, Integrated Home and Media Room will compete in the global competition. The 2017 global installation winners will be recognized at the CEDIA EMEA awards event in 29 September 2017.
Hardware and software product entries compete in a global completion and are recognized annually. All 2017 product winners will be announced at the CEDIA Awards event held on 6 September 6, 2017 in San Diego, CA.
A winning entry should demonstrate technical excellence in all aspects of design, installation and commissioning while meeting all applicable industry performance standards. The project should be well documented and be executed using recognized project management strategies. It should complement the aesthetic treatment of the environment in which it is installed and be easy and safe for its users to operate. It should not expose its owners to security threats and be easily expanded and adapted in the future. Finally, it should demonstrably enhance the lives of those who own and use it.
