Crestron New Low-Cost Prodigy System

Crestron has announced the release of their entry level automation solution aimed at competing with Control4's pricing. Prodigy requires no system design, no wiring and no expensive installation. The Prodigy Composer software guides the integrator through a few simple steps using basic drop-down menus and check boxes. The software provides all the logic and creates touchscreen interfaces automatically in the background. The wizard is intuitive so anyone can get a system up and running in minutes without any training. The system starts with the ZigBee-compatible (802.15.4) PMC2 controller and PLX2 two-way ZigBee remote sold as a package for $700. For a whole house solution Creston is offering a $5,500 sample system which included four zones of audio, one thermostat, 15 wireless light dimmers/switches and an in-wall touchscreen.
