– Crestron, the global leader in custom home automation and control technology, has partnered with Amazon Alexa to provide next-generation voice control of Crestron home systems. Crestron Technology Professionals can now leverage Alexa Voice Service to build voice controlled scenes and settings that are fully customized to their clients’ lifestyles. Integration is not limited to basic functions such as lighting and temperature; homeowners can choose from an unlimited range of voice control options for their homes featuring the unparalleled power, nuance, and customization only available with Crestron. Amazon Alexa and Crestron will be demonstrating the new integrated voice control solution at CEDIA EXPO 2016 in Dallas, booth #2510.


“Crestron customers expect a truly integrated home technology experience,” said John Clancy, VP of Residential Systems at Crestron. “We’ve been collaborating very closely with Amazon Alexa engineers to make sure we offer an uncompromising voice control experience that is every bit as seamless and satisfying as tapping a button on a beautiful Crestron touch screen, remote control, or designer keypad. You can ask Alexa to set the mood for dinner, or to play a movie in the bedroom, or let her know it’s too cold in the bathroom. Just say the word and your Crestron system responds immediately.” 


Crestron Technology Professionals can quickly define and deploy Amazon Alexa skills using new software modules that interface with both the Smart Home Skill API and the Alexa Skills Kit SDK. These modules are for use with homes using both Crestron 3-Series® processors (available October 1st), and Crestron Pyng® (coming soon). More detailed information will be available for Crestron dealers soon as well as a comprehensive suite of training resources.
