Crestron Home OS 3
Crestron Pyng Upgraded & Enhanced!
In this blog post we explained about how Crestron Pyng is revolutionising the Home Automation market – quickly becoming a must have for the modern networked home! The imminent release of OS3 (UPDATE – Released and available on the app store as of September 2019!!) brings a huge amount of improvements and changes – as well as a rebrand, welcome to Crestron Home OS3! Check out the video below!
What are the changes from Pyng to Crestron Home?
- New Processor – The new Crestron Home solution is hugely powerful and runs a lighting fast user interface (see below) this requires an upgrade to the new Crestron Home processor which is approximately twice as powerful as the old Pyng processor (the CP3-R).
- New Interface – The new Crestron Home interface is stunning! Apparently Crestron have invested huge amounts of money and time in to designing the perfect interface and it shows – this is a class leading interface which easily rivals and beats other home automation systems. We can easily demo this interface to clients using an iPad – try the system in advance and see exactly how easy it is to use!
- Flexibility – The above interface will happily run on your mobile phone or tablet in addition to in-wall touchpanels and keypads – great for when you want to pre-warm the home ready for your arrival or when you want to change the music playing throughout the garden!
- Powerful – The new Crestron Home solution will build on the Crestron Pyng solution to offer multi-room audio video, lighting control, heating and even intercoms and access control. In fact the Crestron Home solution is so flexible you can easily integrate anything electrical – garage doors, gates, irrigation systems and saunas!
Crestron Home will be a substantial upgrade for any clients currently running Pyng with only a small processor upgrade unlocking the power of Crestron Home and it will also directly challenge wizard driven home automation systems from the likes of Savant, Lutron, Control 4 and RTI. The killer feature being that Crestron Home can also work with a fully bespoke Crestron system for the more demanding projects where clients need something a little different!
New Crestron Home Processor – CP4-R
All this new functionality means a lot more processing power is required – hence the need for Crestron to introduce the brand new Crestron Home OS3 specific processor – the CP4-R with huge amounts of processing power and memory compared to the outgoing CP3-R. This provides for a quick and response system, even when using iPad and android controls. The below infographic explains the differences.
If you have an existing Crestron system (either Pyng or a custom installation) then please do contact us to discuss upgrading – the benefits are huge!
