Thank you Crestron for acknowleding our electronics integration expertise in the 2013 Crestron Integration Awards We are very proud to share what Crestron had to say about one of our recent projects. 
Crestron Award“Living in New Hampshire affords this homeowner picturesque views. But when it’s time to go to bed, sometimes you want complete darkness. Or when you’re watching a movie, you want to feel like you’re in the theater. This is where motorized shades come into the picture. This 2,000 square-foot condo has three large exterior windows: one in the master bedroom, and two in the living room. Each window is about 10-feet wide and 8-feet tall. The client wanted black-out shades for watching TV during the day and sleeping in on weekends in the bedroom. DC Home Systems worked closely with the builder to create a recessed pocket for the shades to mount inside. They had U-channel installed behind the left and right molding of the window. The edges of the shades run inside this channel to keep light from leaking around the edges. A groove was routed into the sill to allow the batten to sit below the top of the sill when closed. This keeps light from leaking under the shade. An access panel was installed to enable easy servicing of the shades. The client also wanted to be able to project an image on the shades. This would allow him to view scenes from around the world if he wanted. He could also project football games on the shades. DC installed a projector in a soffit opposite the window. It’s bright enough to project a sharp image on the shade and still be visible during the day. Since this wall is at a 90-degree angle from the 75″ Samsung® TV and about 25-feet from the kitchen TV, the client can watch three games at once. The shades can be controlled from the homeowner’s keypad, iPad®, or handheld Crestron remote. Entertainment is the cornerstone of this New England property and the shading integration creates the perfect ambiance.”
