The Hearst Tower, with its distinctive triangular frame, opened in New York City October 9, 2007 as the city’s first Gold LEED® certified building. Dubbed as, "one of the largest IT networking projects ever undertaken," the Hearst Tower incorporates Crestron control software and hardware throughout the building.

Drapes, shades or blinds are an attractive alternative for covering windows. A motorized track or roller, easily controlled via a Crestron touchpanel, provides convenience and ensures that drapes are always placed correctly and can even save energy and prevent upholstery from fading.
Tips for Shade Control
"Cool Add-Ons: Motorized Shades"
The new headquarters for the National Association of Realtors (NAR) was awarded the Silver Certificate from the LEED Green Building Rating Board. Avitecture installed the AV and control system, which was a challenge because the entire exterior of the building is glass and the structure comes to a point at one end. Crestron connected rooms include the boardroom, VTC room, event rooms and the IT server room. A combination of both wired and wireless solutions was implemented to control all the AV and VTC cameras. The "need help" button programming into the Crestron touchpanels communicates with RoomView™ software for remote help desk and asset management capabilities.
