Eleven years and CE Pro sister publication Electronic House is still going strong with its annual Home of the Year Awards program — one that is intended to showcase some of the smartest homes on the planet.
Winners were chosen based on the high level of innovation, creativity and customization demonstrated in the design and installation of sophisticated systems into these nine stunningly beautiful and brainy homes.
Details and images of the winning installations cover several categories. You’ll see a wide variety of homes — all sizes, price ranges, styles and ages.
There are beachfront properties where the ability to monitor and control systems remotely was a must for the owners, as well as residences whose electronics cater to the busy lifestyles of active families.
There’s an outdoor entertainment system that rises up from the ground, and a barn from the 1800s that was transformed into a modern living space for owners eager to live off the grid.
And there are theaters that feature raw A/V power and creatively reflect their owners’ personalities.
