Home Automation is all about control and Crestron has come out with a revolutionary product. The basic premise of the Crestron Pyng is that it provides complete home automation control to the homeowner after installation.
The Crestron Pyng was introduced to home integration innovators, like H2 Systems, at the CEDIA Expo in Denver last month.
Crestron's Pyng app for iPads and the Pyng hub enable configuration and control of lighting products, motorized shades, thermostats, occupancy sensors, and door locks equipped with infiNET EX. The infiNET EX products connect via RF to the Pyng hub.
With the app and hub, home integrators will facilitate faster installation and timesavings, as the sophisticated programming currently required of home automation systems.
The retrofit-focused infiNET EX products are targeted to luxury homes through the company's existing dealer base. The app and hub aren't intended to broaden distribution beyond current Crestron dealers, informed the company.
“The app and hub, available at the CEDIA Expo for shipping, promises to change the way dealers go to market and interact with customers,” said marketing VP Sean Goldstein. “Because the system does not require sophisticated programming experience, more employees will be capable of going out into the field to configure systems, enabling installers to do a lot more jobs more quickly, he says. That will also help improve profitability, as will the need for fewer truck rolls,” he says.
H2 Systems considers this new innovation a game changer in home automation. We are excited to offer Crestron Pyng along side all of our home integration and home entertainment products.
