Crestron Remote Control 007

We visited a client of ours whose upgrade we carried out earlier this year to make a few changes to his tastes. It is easy to see why he was happy to upgrade his entertainment system to include a properly configured Crestron control system.

With the correct planning we were able to install a single Crestron remote control in 3 rooms of the house, replacing a basket full of remote controls which included:

  • DSTV Remote Control
  • Panasonic Plasma TV remote
  • Egreat Media player remote
  • Blu Ray DVD player remote

We also added some new devices to the multi-room video distribution system, including:

  • Apple TV’s
  • Custom built XBMC Media players
  • Security camera (CCTV) integration
  • New surround sound Audio Video Receiver in the media room

All controlled by Crestron MLX-3 remote controls.
