Energy automation with the all-in-one ecoLinx intelligent energy management system made its debut at this year's expo.

"With the revolutionary new ecoLinx, we are transforming the concept of energy automation into a reality," said Blake Richetta, sonnen's Senior Vice President and Head of the U.S. Subsidiary. "We are incredibly honored that CE Pro has recognized this watershed moment in both the home automation and clean energy industries by naming the ecoLinx a 2018 BEST Award winner."
"The BEST Awards offer an incredible glimpse into the future for the entire residential integration industry," says Jason Knott, editor-in-chief of CE Pro. "Some of the products and technologies that integrators now consider mainstays to their businesses made their first appearance in the market via the BEST Awards. These entries truly represent the cutting edge of technology."
The ecoLinx, along with other winners, will be posted to the CEPro.com Product Awards section with a link to the entrant's site, included in the November issue of CE Pro Magazine, and social media coverage. ecoLinx will also be featured in the November Issue of CE Pro magazine, posted to CEPro.com, usage of the CE Pro BEST Award Winner Logo, and will have recognition during CEDIA.
