Craftsmanship and quality assurance are paramount when implementing luxury smart home technology. As a leading AV manufacture, Crestron is at the top of the mountain when it comes to quality assurance. There is not another home automation manufacturer that can match Crestron’s resources. Crestron products are backed by more than 90 fully-staffed offices that provide 24 x 7 x 365 sales, technical, and training support across the globe.

In addition to offering virtually every type of residential control solution, and 24/7/365 support, Crestron takes research and development to the next level. The latest example was announced during the first quarter of 2016, when Crestron Electronics opened a state-of-the-art research and testing lab for its residential product line to facilitate additional product innovations.

The lab is located at Crestron’s Rockleigh, NJ headquarters and represents a major and ongoing investment in researching and testing large scale residential systems. “We are essentially building a series of sizeable Crestron homes within our expansive engineering facilities so we can further understand and ensure the best end user experience”, said Crestron Chief Technology Officer, Fred Bargetzi.


The new lab combined with another 3,000 square feet in progress will be one of the largest home technology research & test labs in the industry with hundreds of user interfaces, lighting loads, shades, climate, DigitalMedia, security, and all the latest AV sources that can be found in the modern connected home. As part of the testing procedures, all components are integrating and tied into a centralized control center that can be controlled using Crestron keypads, touch panels or mobile app.

“This facility is another example of Crestron’s continued commitment to making the best residential systems on the market, blending the latest in technology with unsurpassed quality,” said Mr. Bargetzi.
