All signals and communications are managed over the single multimode fiber strand, making installation faster, cheaper and easier than ever.


The world's first 8 gigabit AV distribution and control network, DM 8G delivers unprecedented, ultra -high speed and long distance transmission of all data, Ethernet and control, plus analog and digital AV signals. "DigitalMedia 8G is the fastest and most powerful AV network ever developed," explained Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing. "As a true one -wire platform, 8G also saves integrators a lot of time and money, significantly reducing material and labor costs of cabling and the number of terminations."

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
