Smart Control Systems – Why Choose Crestron?

When starting a building project there are many elements of the build to consider. Which architect or engineer to choose? Which builder to work with? Building type – block, timber-frame or ICF? Heating systems – geothermal, air-to-water or solar? Insulation specifications? Windows and doors? There are so many important choices to be made.

All of this decision making can leave you a little overwhelmed and inevitably “things” can fall through the cracks. With good planning, from the outset, this should never happen.

Fundamental to any new build is a robust technology infrastructure. Future proofing for technology is paramount when building or renovating. A smart control system will deliver added comfort, convenience and secure peace of mind to your new home or work place.

Crestron provides a simple solution for automating everything from AV equipment to lights and blinds all into an effortless integrated system. We thought we would take a look at why Crestron works so well when integrated in both residential and commercial buildings.

You can have the perfect day every day when you wake up to a Crestron automated home. One touch of the “wake” scene button and the lights will gently illuminate your side of the bed, without blinding you or disrupting your partner. Step into your preheated bathroom while the TV turns on to your favourite news channel—all without fumbling for switches or a remote. And that’s just the beginning in a home where all the technology is seamlessly integrated.

We can program your Crestron integrated control system to meet the individual needs of our clients. Whether it is having the heating set to the perfect temperature, the AC kick in when the temperature gets too high or when you are on holidays and want to check who has just buzzed your front door-bell.
