Crestron has officially announced that a new Crestron Pyng software update is now available.

Crestron says Version 1.010.0038 elevates the user experience to a new level while making integration easier for Crestron Technology Professionals (CTPs).

Integrating Sonos with Crestron Pyng as a multi-room audio source is now easier as installers can simply pair Crestron Pyng with Sonos Connects and immediately select and control Sonos favourites with Crestron touch screens, including the new TSW-560P 5om portrait model.

CTPs can also now integrate Amazon Alexa software with home systems without any programming. All that’s required is to follow a few simple configuration steps. Once connected, Alexa automatically recognises rooms and scene names from Crestron Pyng for immediate voice control, such as ‘Alexa, tell Crestron it’s too hot in the kitchen’.

CTPs can also now pre-configure customer rooms, lighting loads and modules off-site and then retrieve them from the cloud on-site. No more double work planning and documenting systems for electricians and then having to recreate that entire process in the Crestron Pyng app while on-site. Installers can now document and configure remotely in one step.

Crestron has also been keen to increase control for end-users and the latest up-date means clients can now create their own scenes and schedules for lighting and shades through user interfaces other than Crestron Pyng, such as mobile projects and touch screens generated by the residential version of Crestron Studio software.

Crestron also adds that combining the all-new residential version of Crestron Studio software with Crestron Pyng enables CTPs to configure custom AV controls for Crestron touch screens, handheld remotes and keypads with a new level of efficiency. There’s no programming required, so a technician can use Crestron Studio to set up AV controls and deploy them instantly via Crestron Pyng.
