Crestron systems are compatible with iPhone and Android phones and tablets! If you already own a Crestron system or have been thinking about adding one to your home, you can easily control that system with one of these devices. Nothing is more convenient than using your cell phone to control the systems around your house. You can browse your music, turn on the lights, adjust the temperature, and do anything any other Crestron control can do – and the best part is that you already own it.
In order to use your portable device to control your Crestron System, you must go to the device’s application store and purchase the software. This software will allow your Crestron programming team to create another control device and add it to your system. The cost of this programming is similar to that of any other Crestron two-way control device, but the need to buy an expensive touch panel is eliminated. What you can control only depends on what your Crestron system is equipped or programmed to do.
So if you were thinking about purchasing a second remote or an in-wall touch panel and you have an iPhone, iPod Touch, Android Phone, iPad, or even a Mac or PC, you can make that device serve the same purpose with just the cost of programming.
