Crestron CP4-R ‘Central Brain’ Control System Ships
Crestron is now shipping its CP4-R residential control system: what it says will provide a simpler, smarter, more sophisticated user interface experience when employed with its new Crestron Home OS 3 operating system, to be deployed this Spring. Currently, the CPR-4 runs Crestron Pyng OS 2.
Crestron’s first 4-Series product, the CP4-R is being billed as the ultimate “central brain” of the all-new Crestron Home operating system. Performance enhancements over the earlier CP3-R include quadrupled speed, and a doubling of RAM to support larger systems.
“The CP4-R gives us a powerful, future-proof platform to support continued enhancements to the Crestron Home operating system,” said Michael Short, Global Residential Marketing Manager at Crestron, in the announcement statement.
In tandem with Crestron hardware, according to the company, OS 3 will give integrators the ability to deliver a simplified user interface that includes sophisticated elements touching on page design, dynamic room controls and icons, as well as new features including support for multiple homes, favorites, custom access, room image customizations and more. OS 3, it says, will enable the setup and time-saving deployment of complete smart homes on any scale, with no programming needed.
