I wish Crestron would show this off at CEDIA wink

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times. It’s still useless if we can’t integrate with all the third party subsystems we’re used to controlled. Lutron, Vantage, Jandy, and Pentair especially.

Looks like a Savant wannabe that falls far short

+1 on the Savant note above.  Looks like much of their UI was ripped off from the other guys.  Not to mention, just about all the functionality they claim will come in the future is already part of the Savant platform.  Users, Scenes, Dealer Access Permissions, etc.  Too me this seems like a “too little, too late” situation for a company that all but bowed out of residential 2+ years ago.  Can we all just agree this is just a modern version of Prodigy and Adagio?  Or perhaps I’m just a jaded old vet who got burned a few too many times.  Fool me once…

“company that all but bowed out of residential 2+ years ago”. Huh grin? They are more committed to residential than they have ever been. If you are referring to bowing out of CEDIA, that was a strategic decision, they now instead put on dedicated shows in NY and FL where they bring in their dealers from all of the country.

It’s impossible to design any UI in this day and age that does not have elements in common. Overall, the flow looks fairly different from Savant.

This looks nothing like Savant. But it does look as if HomeKit and Google Home had a baby which was lovingly adopted by Crestron.

Well, this is just silly. Ripped off a UI? Crestron’s crime is that they were late to the “user empowerment” party. They’ve been around 30 years. Saddled with baggage. They decided to start from scratch and work on the back end before putting a pretty face on it. We raved about Savant’s platform back then. We still do today. JDS Technologies beat everyone to it about 25 years ago.
