3 Reasons Why We Love Crestron Home (and You Should, too!)
Crestron OS 3 Makes Interacting with Your Home Easy, Personal, and Fun
Homeowners in Ogunquit and southern Maine have a lot of choices when it comes to adding smart technology and control systems to their homes. While the right brands and products will be unique to each household, there’s a reason Crestron is known globally as the leader in the smart home category.
As the pioneer of home automation, Crestron provides end-to-end smart home solutions that lead the industry in quality, reliability, and customization. Their latest Crestron Home operating system is more flexible and intuitive than ever, winning the top spot on our list of notable home automation systems.
Crestron makes us proud to be a certified Crestron dealer. Below, explore key features we love most about Crestron Home OS 3 (and that we think you’ll love, too)!
1. Intuitive User Experience
Crestron Home OS 3 puts the user first. The revolutionary app is more responsive and user-friendly than previous iterations and gives homeowners more control over their technology and properties. Quickly find devices and scenes through illustrative icons, display what you use most at the top of the app, use your own photos to represent rooms, create custom scenes for any occasion, and always know what media is playing where with quick access to the active media bar at the bottom of the app.
2. Room-Based Control
One of the most fundamental changes that Crestron made within OS 3 was transitioning from a system-based to a room-based user experience. Before OS 3, if homeowners wanted to adjust the lights in the living room, they would have to navigate a list of rooms with integrated lights to find the living room. Now, OS 3 focuses on rooms rather than systems to make navigation much simpler.
For instance, if you’re in the living room and want to do more than adjust lights, you can stay on one page within the app and quickly view all devices and scenes that apply to the living room. See the status of the living room at a glance and access lights, shades, music, and more with a button tap.
3. A Total Home Solution
Crestron isn’t just a leader in home control systems. They also design and manufacture their own class-leading products in audio/video distribution, lighting and shading control, climate control, and more. All their smart home products are masterfully designed to work together and integrate seamlessly with Crestron Home to deliver a reliable end-to-end solution.
At the same time, Crestron also supports a growing list of third-party smart home products from brands like Apple, Amazon, Lutron, and Sonos so that homeowners can continue using the products they love while enjoying the sophistication and intuitiveness of Crestron home automation.
