Support for Sonos® and Amazon Alexa® is now a native feature of Crestron Pyng®

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Pyng is Crestron’s new technology that enables the setup and control of luxury home automation in just a few steps right from the iPad®.  The latest version now improves the user experience to a consummate new level, while making integration even easier for system integrators. Since Amazon Alexa® software support is now native to Pyng, system integrators can now integrate Amazon Alexa software with home systems without any programming. A few simple configuration steps from an iPad is all that is required to set it up. Furthermore, once connected, Alexa automatically recognizes rooms and scene names from Crestron Pyng for instant voice control, such as “Alexa, tell Crestron it’s too cold in the dining room.”

Installation is made easier, allowing system integrators to pre-configure customer rooms, lighting loads, and modules off-site, and then, once on-site, retrieve them from the cloud. Schedules can be printed and sent to electricians. Now, you can document and configure remotely in just one step, and have Alexa up and running in no time.

Pyng also allows clients to easily create their own scenes and schedules for lighting and shades by using mobile projects and touch screens generated by the residential version of Crestron Studio® software.

Pyng technology supports the latest in class Crestron, and is exhibited in the world’s most prestigious homes. Pyng supports a wide array of wired and wireless dimmers, switches, keypads, shade motors, thermostats, sensors; streaming radio services, multi-room audio, centralized lighting control, ONVIF cameras, door locks, security systems, ceiling fans, touch screens, and more. Pyng technology makes it easy – pairing devices can be done in minutes, and clients can customise their schedules and scenes at leisure.  Pyng ships with Alexa natively, and no additional software or drivers are needed.
