For more than 40 years, Crestron has been the world’s leading manufacturer of advanced control and automation systems, innovating technology and reinventing the way people live and work. Offering integrated solutions to control audio, video, computer, IP and environmental systems, Crestron streamlines technology, improving the quality of life for people in corporate boardrooms, conference rooms, classrooms, auditoriums, and in their homes
If you enjoy TV, movies, gaming and music, then Crestron can bring your home entertainment to life, wherever you want to enjoy it, to suit your taste and lifestyle. If you want to relax in your home, enjoy the mood or change the scene to fit the social occasion, then they can dramatically enhance your lighting. If you want to feel safer in your home, then they can help with that too. And if you want to save energy as well, then their technology offers a range of options to reduce energy consumption.
They can make life better and simpler, too. That’s why the latest Crestron home automation systems have been designed to blend naturally into every home and be adaptable for everything the modern lifestyle requires. They provide one central control platform for all the electronic systems in the house, with Crestron products designed, built, and guaranteed to work together as a complete integrated system, rather than a collection of parts.
And the technology couldn’t be easier to operate. They take out the unnecessary layers of complexity in your home. With a Crestron system, you can easily control everything around your property, room-by-room, using in-wall pads, touch screens and remotes, or anytime, anywhere from your own personal smart device. You can run Crestron apps on your iPads® and iPhones® for even greater control opportunities. With the touch of one “Scene” button, you can set everything you want in every room of your home for any activity, from “Wake” to “Goodnight” and anything in-between, such as “Watch”, “Listen” or “Away”. An unlimited number of Scenes can be created and customised for you, whatever the time of day.
On your way out in the morning, you can press “Away” on the in-wall touch screen by the front door. Lights throughout the house will automatically turn off; the thermostat will lower to the pre-set temperature; the security system comes on, all doors lock and music and all TVs are turned off.
You can even control the blinds in your home to open and close at set times to take advantage of solar heating and reduce energy consumption. Before you arrive home, all you need to do is press the”Home” button on the Crestron app on your iPhone®. The security system will be disarmed, the temperature will be just how you like it and the lights will be on, where you want them. If you fancy some music, your favourite iTunes® playlist can be playing to set the scene for having friends over, or for a relaxing night in.
Crestron works, and works reliably to optimise the efficiency of the home, without compromising comfort or convenience. Its intelligent platform can unify, control and monitor all energy-consuming systems, including HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning), lighting, shades, audio visual, security, and more, and achieves meaningful reductions in energy usage and utility costs by integrating all the property’s systems on this single, intelligent building management platform. So that means lower energy costs and greater value for money.
It’s time to embrace home automation, with an integrated approach that’s simple, reliable and affordable – so go ahead, make your life easier and better. Welcome to a Crestron home!
