The Mark of Excellence Awards, presented by the Smart Home Division of the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), recognize the best in custom integration and installed technology. Each year, manufacturers, distributors, and system integrators compete in more than 20 award categories for this coveted honor. All entries are judged by independent experts within the industry. The Integrator of the Year Award, specifically, recognizes the best smart home integrator in the industry. The winner exhibits outstanding business success, resource usage and comprehensive technical skills. The winner also shows exceptional quality in their professional installations and serves as a leader within their community and the industry.

“There is little more rewarding than the acknowledgement, respect and appreciation of one’s peers,” said Robert A. Cole, CEO and Founder of World Wide Stereo, “Every job we do carries our own mark of excellence and we are proud of it. Customers expect that excellence of our industry. They are entitled to it; after all, we are working in their homes. We look for their approval and strive to improve the quality of their lives. Each job is our opportunity to excel.”

On the future of smart home integration, Bob Cole said: “The future is bright! It’s always been about the home, and they need to be smarter. People are learning how much a smart home contributes to their lifestyle. If you consider stay-at-home healthcare and wellness, that’s the giant trend. What people come home to matters most. Family and home.”

On giving advice to other integration professionals new to the industry, Bob Cole said “Learn as much as you can. Establish values you can base your business on and stick to them no matter what. They have to be the rules of the company, no exceptions. Values like quality, integrity, excellence and honesty. This is what propels one’s business.”

The 2023 Mark of Excellence winners will be recognized at CES 2023 during the Mark of Excellence Ceremony on January 6. To learn more about the awards and view all winners, visit We are delighted and truly humbled to be in such good company.
