Crestron & Smart Home Compatible Products
The flexibility of Crestron’s automation products stem from the ever increasing number of Smart Home compatible products from other brands with which they can be seamlessly integrated and used in conjunction with, along with one of the company’s best USPs, the near ‘open source’ approach to the programming of their automated systems. This approach to home automation allows for the writing of fresh code, protocols, or APIs to fully suit all possible household needs. With this in mind, Mayflower London’s team of home automation technicians have thorough experience in programming Crestron automation systems and in designing them all the way down to creating unique icons for display on the GUIs to our clients request or design.

When supplying clients looking to improve their household temperature control as a singular upgrade or as part of a Smart Home setup centered around a Crestron control system, Mayflower London would always recommend Crestron’s intuitive climate, lighting and shade control systems. Not only do these systems translate into long term cost reductions with savings on energy used for heating and air conditioning, but the shade motors and lighting controls come with a limited lifetime guarantee, something largely unheard of in the industry.
With 24 different trademarked III and IV series control systems to choose from along with an ample range of control modules and distribution devices, Crestron will have the perfect Smart Home automation control setup to meet all of the client’s as well as his family’s requirements.
In terms of retrofitting Crestron control systems, Mayflower London’s team will make up an inventory of the existing products that the client wants to incorporate and check their compatibility. This is usually influential in determining which control system to install. With regards to this, our team can gain additional insight from Crestron’s own design network, who will suggest all the compatible products that will enable the existing products to be integrated, enabling them to operate successfully as part of the SMART Home system.
Crestron’s ‘open source’ approach
One of Crestron’s longstanding and attractive USPs is the near ‘open source’ approach to the programming of their automated systems. This approach to home automation allows for the writing or reverse engineering of code, protocols, or APIs to fully suit all possible household needs. With this in mind, Mayflower London’s team of home automation technicians have thorough experience in programming Crestron automation systems and has allowed us to build up and offer offer our own complex custom made solutions, sometimes incorporating design all the way down to creating unique icons for display on the GUIs to our clients request or design.
Building upon this open source approach to programming their systems, Crestron Home stands out from previous Crestron systems in that it is more cost efficient and much easier to setup and install than their previous SMART Home control systems, further offering its NVX video switching which is widely regarded as the best available, and a user interface that works across all existing Crestron systems, even when programmed by different companies. Supporting a wide number of home entertainment platforms and offering the ability to control multiple AV systems within a property, it features event scheduling with an astronomical clock, advanced user password configurations, Lutron compatibility, and my Crestron remote monitoring service. Although it was only released just over a year ago, the list of compatible products is expanding at a rapid rate. Crestron even offers early beta releases, all in all making it one of the most flexible and attractive SMART Home systems ever created.
