Crestron announced today an expanded partnership with Amazon that brings the power of Alexa to the meeting space. The integration allows employees to start a meeting – from dialing in to the voice or video call to pulling up presentation materials on-screen – with one command. Meeting attendees can also ask Alexa to adjust the room’s A/V, lighting and HVAC, using commands such as “Alexa, tell Crestron it’s too cold in this room.”
Crestron says they and Amazon have been working together for almost a year in the residential market and they wrote to us saying that many Fortune 500 companies that use Crestron were asking to add Amazon Alexa voice-controlled skills to control their office space.
Crestron will be demonstrating Amazon Alexa in the meeting space next week at InfoComm 2017 Booth #1900. And they have details of the new Alexa integration here.
