Crestron sponsors fall BICSI meeting at IBS

On October 29, IBS hosted the fall North-Central Region Breakfast Club meeting, sponsored by Crestron, a firm that engineers, manufactures, and delivers control and automation technology. Their solutions for buildings and homes let people control entire environments with the push of a button, integrating systems such as A/V, lighting, shading, IT, security, BMS, and HVAC to provide greater comfort, convenience, and security.

Thanks, Crestron, for your support!
