Crestron app combines the power of home automation with popular wearable technology device

Rockleigh, NJ, April 24, 2015 - Delivery of Apple Watch begins today, and Crestron is proud to unveil its new Crestron app for the watch. Precision control is always on hand when controlling your home from the Crestron app for Apple Watch. Users can instantly access common commands and scenes on the watch for dynamic control straight out of your favorite spy movie.


Why dig through your pockets for keys or a smartphone when you can unlock your door with just a tap of your wrist? Or interrupt a great conversation to change the playlist at your party? With the Crestron app for Apple Watch, you can turn on the lights and adjust the AC before you get home, or set the alarm and lower the shades as you pull out of the driveway. Even when your iPhone is out of reach or charging, the app on your watch is ready for action.

The Crestron app provides:

* At a glance, users can check the status of their home devices, check the current settings of their lights, shades, security systems, and more
* Access and control of any device
* Customizable user interface display with your favorite control features

We've made it even easier to always stay connected to your home."

With the Crestron app, users can instantly access 10 custom controls they use most frequently. Two-way communication allows them to check what lights are on, the current temperature, or if the garage door is open.

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.
