Crestron Showcases Control Solutions Using Apple® Products at Macworld® 2012

Mobile Pro Demo Leaves Visitors Blown Away by Control Possibilities

Crestron and its mobile control solutions were a big hit with Apple® fans at the Moscone Center in San Francisco last week. As a first-time MacWorld®/iWorld exhibitor, Crestron demonstrated the Mobile Pro apps for the iPad® and iPhone® to thousands of attendees. Under the slogan "Control Everything™. All From One App™," Crestron captivated the Macworld audience with a refreshed mobile GUI and hands-on demonstration, using simulated home, boardroom and classroom environments to control entertainment systems, lighting, shades, multi-room audio/video, heating/cooling, and security systems.


While many visitors had a limited understanding of Crestron solutions, applications and markets prior to the show, nearly all walked away with a better understanding of the its offerings and value proposition. Overall, there was tremendous feedback from end users who left the show with an interest in installing Crestron in their homes, offices and schools.

Among the many visitors to the Crestron kiosk were handfuls of Apple bloggers and technology writers who had nothing but positive things to say about Crestron and its control solutions. David Temple of Appletell wrote, "With all due respect to all of the fantastic apps at MacWorld | iWorld 2012, I am going to give Crestron my nod for Best of Show," while Trevor Sheridan of Apple 'N' Apps said, "Crestron was by far and away the one company at MacWorld|iWorld that truly blew my mind for the possibilities."
