Crestron Adds Amazon Alexa Integration to Commercial AV Control Systems

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.
