Your current Crestron system is likely still operating as it should. After all, Crestron products are designed for longevity. However, with technology advancing rapidly, you might find yourself longing for an updated system brimming with the latest features.

You have several options for upgrading. You could hire a programmer to modify your setup and refresh the interface, or you could start from scratch and replace all your current products to gain new features. However, there's a third option that's arguably more efficient, rewarding and has further longevity: integrating Crestron Home with your existing Crestron setup, providing you with access to a wealth of modern features.

We'd like to delve into this third option and illustrate the advantages it offers.

It's common knowledge that older Crestron systems have their limitations. The interface may look dated, remote access might be a challenge to implement, and maintenance or changes can be expensive. Moreover, if your system hasn't been maintained or updated, it can leave your smart home vulnerable to cyber threats and compatibility issues.

Another potential drawback is the lack of integration with popular voice assistants like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. The absence of this feature in older Crestron systems can limit the ease of use.


So, what does Crestron Home bring to the table to address these issues?
