Ambiance Systems Wins Big

Best Home Theater • Ultimate Home of the Year • Best Innovation

Ambiance Systems ended up being the big winners at the Consumer Electronics Association’s (CEA) Mark of Excellence Awards, taking home three titles: Ultimate Integrated Home, Best Innovation Project (winners 2nd year in a row), and Best Home Theater/Media Room. Ambiance beat out several other projects from around the country, including homes from South Beach, Malibu, and Chicago. Winners were announced on Friday, March 31, 2006 at the Mark of Excellence Awards Banquet at Spring EHX in Orlando, FL. Marc Leidig, President and CEO of Ambiance Systems commented, “Some people found it surprising that a company from Upstate NY could compete with the best of the best in sophisticated cutting edge technology.”

The prestigious 2006 Mark of Excellence Awards, presented by CEA's TechHome Division, recognize the best in home technology products, services, and installations. An expert panel of judges reviewed entries in 23 categories: Supplier, Integrator, Integrator of the Year and Training/Support. (Out of the 8 categories for Integrators, Ambiance Systems won 3). In addition, Ambiance was 1 of 4 nationally acclaimed companies named a Finalist for Integrator of the Year.

This beautiful Adirondack retreat has a deceivingly traditional interior, but what drops out of the ceiling or rises up from the floor may surprise you. A truly High Tech Cottage
