Crestron Partners with Amazon Alexa
Crestron 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. Integration includes lighting and temperature as well as the ability for homeowners to choose from an unlimited range of voice control options for their homee. Amazon Alexa and Crestron will be demonstrating the new integrated voice control solution at CEDIA EXPO 2016 in Dallas, booth #2510.
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.
