Underlining the company’s continued desire to shake off the closed system approach of the past, Crestron has announced integration that leverages the power of Apple TV, Siri, and HomeKit technologies enabling IP control of Apple TV, including voice control with Siri via the TSR-310 touch screen remote.
Crestron says the new and seamless integration delivers lifestyle-changing new functionality, starting with IP control of Apple TV, including fast voice control with Siri via the TSR-310 touch screen remote control. Initial support will be provided via Crestron SIMPL Windows programming software for 3-Series control systems, with support in the Crestron Home operating system coming soon.
“We are delighted to be working closely with Apple to produce an experience that our customers will love,” says Michael Short, Global Residential Marketing Manager. “The new and seamless integration gives our residential integrators yet another powerful tool to enhance the user experience and lifestyle of Crestron smart home customers.”
More enhancements made possible by the Crestron and Apple integration will be available via Crestron Home in summer 2019: the same IP control of Apple TV and voice control through Siri via the TSR-310 remote, but with added support for IP control of Apple TV from all user interfaces, including the Crestron HR-310 remote, Crestron touch screens, and mobile devices.
