Crestron announced today that Apple TV , Siri and HomeKit technologies can now be utilized to enhance the experience of Crestron smart home customers. The new and seamless integration delivers lifestyle-changing new functionality, starting with Apple TV IP control, including lightning-fast voice control with Siri via the TSR-310 touchscreen remote. Initial support will be provided through Crestron SIMPL Windows programming software for 3-Series® operating systems, with support in the Crestron Home operating system coming soon.
"We are excited to work closely with Apple to produce an experience our customers will love," said Michael Short, Global Marketing Manager for Residential Marketing, in a statement. "The new and seamless integration gives our home integrators another powerful tool to improve the user experience and lifestyle of Crestron smart home customers."
Several enhancements made possible by Crestron and Apple integration will be available through Crestron Home in the summer of 2019: the same great IP control of Apple TV and voice control through Siri via the TSR-310 remote; and added support for Apple TV IP control from all user interfaces, including the Crestron HR-310 remote, Crestron touch screens and mobile devices.
