Customized & Integrated from A to Z

A key feature of Crestron automation systems is the seamless integration of smart devices from different brands and multiple technology systems into a single platform. For example, you can use the Crestron Home mobile app to turn on Lutron lights in the living room, adjust smart thermostats, and close the shades, all with a single tap on your phone and no matter where you are. Even the Coastal Source lights and speakers, the outdoor solar shades, and the motorized bug screens will operate at the touch of a button!

Seamless integration leads to virtually endless automation and customization options. You could, for instance, set up custom routines that automatically adjust the lighting and temperature in your home based on your schedule or activities. Is it movie night? There’s nothing like the dark coolness of a home theater featuring AV systems preset to your preferences, plush chairs, and everyone’s favorite blankets. Are the in-laws coming over? Set the Ketra tunable lights to a warm, soothing temperature and play their usual favorite tunes through the whole-home audio system.

You can also use the Crestron app to monitor for unusual activity in your home, receive alerts whenever a threat is detected, or remotely operate a Ring video doorbell or smart lock from the other side of the world. Is there a stranger outside? They will doubt coming over once the front porch shades roll up and the lights turn on inside!

Whether you want to manage your audio and video smart devices,  monitor your surveillance and access control systems, operate your lighting and shades, or all of the above, Crestron can do it all. Just don’t try to install everything on your own. If you are anywhere in Texas, there is no better team to help you than Service Tech, and we are always just a phone tap away!
