ZIO Receives Three 2013 National Technology Awards

ZIO Receives Three 2013 National Technology Awards
Local technology solutions company recognized for Winter Park project

WINTER PARK, Fla. October 25, 2013— Winter Park-based ZIO announced today that it has been recognized in the 2013 Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) Electronic Lifestyles Awards in the categories of “Best Overall Design” and “Gold Technical Design” for a Media Room and “Gold Technical Design” for an Integrated Home. This is the sixth consecutive year that the company has earned accolades from the professional association.

CEDIA presents the annual Electronic Lifestyles Awards to recognize excellence in the home technology industry. ZIO’s efforts in creating home-based integrated technology and entertainment systems were recognized in this year’s competition, whose winners were announced during the 2013 CEDIA EXPO in Denver, Colo.



"Earning these prestigious honors further reinforces our reputation as creative pioneers in the electronics and technology industry,” said ZIO Business Development Principal, Paul Bryan, “At ZIO, we strive to provide cutting-edge technology to satisfy all of our clients’ needs, no matter how simple or complex or unconventional."

The winning entry in the “Best Integrated Home” and “Best Overall Design for a Media Room” categories reflects collaboration with a young, tech-savvy family during construction of their Winter Park home. The final project included 16 audio and seven video zones; 70 zones of lighting control; 24 zones of security; video surveillance; a Man Cave, with a 150” projection system; plus a golf simulator integrated into the same area. These features are easily accessible and controllable by the entire family via any smartphone or tablet, including iPhone and iPad, handheld touch screen remotes or wall-mounted touch-screens.

"The Man Cave portion of the project required us to create a multipurpose room in a tight space," said ZIO Technology Principal, Peter Shipp, "We had to be conscious of the design our clients envisioned while considering what was possible from a technological standpoint. Our designers, engineers and technicians were able to produce a very technologically advanced—yet easy to use—home theater and golf simulator in the Man Cave."

Lutron Excellence Award

ZIO named Lutron’s 2012 Excellence Award Winner


WINTER PARK, Fla. March 15, 2013 — ZIO Group LLC has been awarded the Lutron Excellence Award for its integrated control and automation system installation in the 2012 New American Home.

The Lutron Excellence Award is the top award given to the world’s best lighting control and window system projects. ZIO was recognized for providing the “Essence of Pleasance,” which Lutron, defines as the fundamental feeling experienced when there’s comfort, romance and peace of mind within the home.

ZIO installed Lutron Homeworks QS, an energy-efficient lighting system that contains no traditional bulbs and features energy management functions, such as dimmable fixtures and vacancy and daylight sensors. It controls 96 loads of advanced LED and compact fluorescent lighting, motorized shades, security, and entertainment and HVAC systems, all combined with 16 user-friendly touch screen keypads.

Lutron Sivioa QS motorized shades were also installed on the exterior and interior of the home for solar protection and privacy. The shades automatically adapt to changing conditions to maximize natural light and decrease energy consumption. To ensure the shades do not obstruct the floor to ceiling view, customized recessed pockets were installed.

The home’s alarm system communicates with the control system during the “away” mode by closing interior shades and turning off all entertainment, water and lighting systems.

 “The integrated Lutron technology systems blends seamlessly with the home’s modern décor and significantly enhances the home’s value,” Peter Shipp, said.
