Homeowners will soon be able to control Apple TV with their voice through Crestron remotes, and use Siri to control their Crestron-driven home.
Crestron will soon be providing a next-generation user experience for Crestron home systems. Announced at Apple’s WWDC 2018 conference, Crestron Technology Professionals will soon be able to leverage the power of Apple TV, Siri, and HomeKit to enhance their clients’ lifestyles and user experience.
This new integration will bring two important benefits to Crestron customers. First, it will enable IP control of Apple TV, including voice commands via the TSR-310 touchscreen remote control. And second, it allows users to use Siri on their iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or HomePod to control the Crestron devices in their home such as lights, shades and thermostats.
“We are working to ensure a complete technology solution for Crestron Technology Professionals and homeowners,” says John Clancy, VP of Residential at Crestron. “An overwhelming percentage of our residential customers use Apple products as part of their home technology ecosystems, and delivering a seamless integration between Crestron technology and Apple solutions will absolutely enhance the homeowner’s user experience.”
More information to come our way. Stay tuned!
