I am so thankful for my team, and because of them, I know we are able to provide top-notch service before, during and after the sale. We have worked many years for an accolade of this caliber, and because of our design partners’ collaboration in this specific project, along with homeowners that trusted us to provide a technology experience designed around the way that they live, the culmination has resulted in us receiving CEDIA’s top honor of ‘Integrated Home of the Year,’ something myself and my team take great pride in.” – Jason Barth, CEO & Principal Designer

The Premier Group partnered on this custom home with builder Carrington Homes and interior design firm Julie O’Brien Design Group (located in suite 228 of the IDC). The clients desired a fully integrated home that made managing the technology in the house simple and intuitive. With Control4‘s easy-to-use operating system, every room is operable with a consistent user interface via their mobile devices, in-wall touch panels, keypads, or on-screen guides.
