Crestron Showcases Complete Integrated Hospitality Solution at HITEC® 2012

Crestron Delivers an Unparalleled Guest Experience Managed by the Help Desk

Baltimore, MD, June 26, 2012 – Crestron is taking the guest experience to the next level. In the Crestron booth at HITEC® 2012 , attendees will experience Integrated by Design™ hospitality solutions in real-life settings, featuring interactive demonstrations of guest room and meeting room spaces. Crestron will showcase everything needed - all the hardware, software, engineering, and design expertise - to integrate lighting, shading, security, AV, IT, HVAC, and BMS for the entire hotel property, on a single platform from a centralized dashboard. The Integrated by Design solutions help the hotel reduce energy consumption and operational costs, while providing a unique experience for hotel guests.

Crestron can tie together all of the technology in lobbies, guest rooms, common areas, meeting rooms and ballrooms for centralized monitoring and control. Crestron partners with leading hospitality vendors, including property management systems and concierge services, to provide simple and seamless integrated solution on a single platform.

With an Integrated by Design hospitality solution, guests receive a first-class in-room experience. Guests can access and control room temperature, lighting, shades, music and televisions, from a single Crestron touch screen or their personal mobile devices. Guests can even order room service, contact the hotel concierge, and more, using the Crestron touch screen.

Using Crestron Fusion® enterprise management software, hotel management can remotely monitor and manage the integrated hospitality solution for all areas of the hotel, from a PC, Mac®, iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ device and a local Crestron touch screen. For example, when an in-room thermostat isn't working properly, hotel management receives an alert from the system to the iPad describing the issue and location. Management can review and quickly respond to the issue without interrupting the guest's stay at the hotel.

“We recognize that hotels are using more technology to enable a higher level of service to their guests,” says Sean Goldstein, Crestron VP of Marketing. “All our products and solutions are Integrated by Design™ to deliver a complete hospitality solution, enabling global monitoring, management and control of the entire hotel property on a single platform.”

Crestron solutions are all designed to provide maximum energy savings, leveraging the full line of solutions from dimming systems to occupancy sensors and daylight harvesting.

“We bring lighting, temperature, and technology together so you can manage energy usage, streamline operations and maintenance, and enhance the guest experience across the entire hotel property,” Mike Stegmann, Crestron Director Hospitality Sales and Marketing. “The goal is to help hoteliers deliver the ultimate luxury experience for guests, while reducing downtime and saving energy and money. No other company even comes close to what we’re delivering.”

Crestron solutions are engineered to integrate with other building technologies on one platform for convenient and efficient monitoring, management and control of the entire property.

Crestron will showcase several new products at HITEC that enable integrated hotel property-wide management, including:

The MC3 3-Series Control System™ with BACnet/IP support provides a scalable, IP-based platform for implementing fully-integrated building management and automation. Integrated control of lighting, shades, HVAC, AV, BMS, security, IT, and other connected systems is now faster, simpler and more efficient than ever before. Built-in BACnet/IP support enables seamless integration with existing building management systems. All systems run independently and simultaneously, while communicating with each other on the same platform, creating a truly smart hotel.

Once the control platform is in place, hotel management can choose to deploy Fusion RV™ (RoomView), Fusion EM™ (Energy Management) or both based on organizational needs. Part of the Crestron Fusion Global Enterprise Management platform, the software solutions provide the foundation for smarter buildings that save energy and enhance worker productivity.

Fusion RV handles room scheduling, monitors and manages AV and IT systems, and provides help desk support. Fusion EM measures, monitors, manages, and controls lighting, HVAC systems, and energy usage in every room on the hotel property, all from one convenient interface. Hotels can automate daily functions and schedule events such as temperature, shades and lighting level set points, demand response settings, global lighting and climate control for unoccupied spaces, and more. Fusion EM integrates with building management systems and monitors historical and real-time energy usage from a centralized dashboard.
