Crestron, the Leader in Luxury Home Automation, Enhances their Pyng Platform
Let ACS Design a System Perfectly Scaled to Meet Your Needs
Crestron, a name synonymous with luxury and one of the most bragged about brands in home automation, has thrown the doors wide open to a new customer base thanks to its beefed up Pyng platform. When Pyng launched just over a year ago, many saw the new product as a limited system for consumers who could not afford a “real” Crestron system. But with the updates and changes announced at CEDIA Expo 2015, Pyng is now a “real” system. Read on to learn how smart home control scaled to meet your needs can enhance any New York or Florida home.
Many consumers who were once deterred from purchasing a Crestron system due to its expensive hardware and pricey programming, now have access to Crestron Pyng technology. Eliminating the expense of custom programming, Pyng enables set up and control of home automation in several efficient steps. And, since the Pyng hub, keypads, and home control solutions are wireless, there is no need to install extra cabling. Standard switches and thermostats are replaced with Crestron versions, and once the hardware is installed, each device within the home is connected to the Pyng network. Once the system is launched, the homeowner can access Pyng to create lighting scenes or modify other functions as their needs and desires evolve.
During the CEDIA Expo 2015, Crestron announced a number of new products that have been added to the Pyng ecosystem. They include Crestron’s hardwired lighting controls, ONVIF-compatible IP cameras and wired devices--like keypads, thermostats, sensors and motorized shades. Installing and configuring these new products do not require opening a laptop. Instead, each can be integrated using an only an iPad.
When Pyng launched last year, it only supported a handful of subsystems. Pyng now works with more than 300 products including Yale locks and Honeywell Visita security panels, multi-room audio, streaming Internet radio, AM/FM radio, and iTunes. Pyng also supports new wireless fan controls, additional third-party locks and security panels are on the way, as well as Crestron DigitalMedia integration.
Finally, Pyng technology allows for remote system monitoring and management, meaning your integrator can track system and device performance, and troubleshoot issues before a problem occurs.
Pyng is now for everyone no matter the size or complexity of the Crestron system. Contact Audio Command Systems to learn how a perfectly scaled Crestron automation system can meet your needs.
