New Release of Crestron Pyng Software Adds Support for Sonos and Amazon Alexa

Crestron announced today that a new Crestron Pyng software update is now available. Version 1.010.0038 elevates the user experience to a new level while making integration even easier for Crestron Technology Professionals (CTPs). Highlights of the Crestron Pyng update include:

Native Sonos sound system support: Integrating Sonos with Crestron Pyng as a multi-room audio source is now effortless. Simply pair Crestron Pyng with Sonos Connects and you can immediately select and control Sonos favorites with gorgeous Crestron touch screens, including the elegant new TSW-560P 5″ portrait model.

Native Amazon Alexa software support: Now, CTPs can integrate Amazon Alexa software with home systems without any programming. All that’s required is to follow some simple configuration steps. Once connected, Alexa automatically recognizes rooms and scene names from Crestron Pyng for immediate voice control, such as “Alexa, tell Crestron it’s too hot in the kitchen.”

Remote configuration: CTPs can now pre-configure customer rooms, lighting loads, and modules off-site and then retrieve them from the cloud on-site. No more double work planning and documenting systems for electricians and then having to recreate that entire process in the Crestron Pyng app while on-site. Now, you can document and configure remotely in just one step

Client customization and scheduling: Clients can now easily create their own scenes and schedules for lighting and shades through user interfaces other than Crestron Pyng, such as mobile projects and touch screens generated by the residential version of Crestron Studio®software

Here are all the details.
