The Challenge: Base the design of a new Crestron smart home solution for a family’s suburban New Jersey home on an existing Crestron system in their New York City home.

The Solution: Old Bridge, NJ based integrator The Source Home Theater used Crestron Pyng® software to deliver a complete, scalable whole home solution that brings together the full universe of best-in-class Crestron products, while providing the familiar user experience of their NYC home.

Crestron Control in NYC Home Recreated for Second Home in the Suburbs
With a Crestron system serving as the technology backbone of their New York City home, the homeowners were already familiar with premier home automation.

When purchasing their new home in New Jersey, they knew the smart home solution would need to be designed differently, but have the same focus on enhancing the family’s day-to-day lives (including in the owner’s private “man cave”) and deliver a user experience consistent with their NYC home.

With Crestron Pyng, the homeowners enjoy a smart home operating system that’s robust, yet easy to manage. Life is fast-paced with a young family, so the technology must be very accessible and easy-to-use. With Crestron, every member of the family can effortlessly control everything in the home using TSW touch screens and handheld remotes. Additionally, Crestron Shading Solutions are integrated throughout the home to help manage natural light and temperature, enhance energy efficiency, and enhance the décor. 

The basement man cave epitomizes Crestron customization. To ensure privacy, entry is granted via a code on the Yale digital door lock only. Occupancy sensors trigger the lights to turn on, as well as the projector, three TVs, and the golf simulator. Everything is ready to go for his enjoyment, with no effort required. Best of all is when the golf simulator is in Party Mode and the owner scores a hole-in-one, a message flashes telling all of his guests to watch out for him, he’s taking the lead.

Thanks to the talents of The Source Home Theater and the flexibility of Crestron Pyng technology, the homeowners received exactly what they wanted: a uniquely tailored, yet familiar, solution that perfectly suits their active lifestyle and accentuates the beautiful aesthetic of the home.
