Crestron's Pyng software update is now available. Version 1.010.0038 faaturesd a number of significant improvements.:

Crestron installers can integrate Amazon Alexa software with home systems without any programming. All that’s required is to follow some 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.”

Integrating Sonos with Crestron Pyng as a multi-room audio source has been made easier. Simply pair Crestron Pyng with Sonos Connects and you can immediately select and control Sonos favourites with gorgeous Crestron touch screens, including the elegant new TSW-560P 5" portrait model.

CTPs can also 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. Projects can be documented and configured remotely in just one step. 

Giving power to the end user, clients can get involved and easily 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.

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 whole 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 with Crestron Pyng.
