At CEDIA EXPO 2014 in Denver (CO), the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) and home automation magazine Residential Systems both honored Basalte's touch-sensitive switch Sentido. This wide recognition gives the Belgian company a head start in its first steps into the American market.
For their Manufacturer's Excellence Awards, CEDIA formed a panel of home technology professionals that represent both the sales and installing branches of the home automation industry.
Praising the innovative control and timeless design, the judges chose the Sentido keypad as a Best New Product. The most important selection considerations were the technological innovation of the product, its value to the technician and his business and how it benefits to the client's lifestyle.
Additionally, a panel of anonymous professional integrator judges evaluated entries for the Resi Best of Show Awards. Undercover visual inspections on the CEDIA EXPO show floor convinced them of the added value Sentido brings to the American home.
