What Makes Crestron Home So Special?

A living area with a flat-screen TV, a Crestron touchscreen on the coffee table, and a view of the backyard and pool.

A User-Friendly Interface Makes Managing Your Home Effortless

At Sierra Integrated Systems, we’ve been creating customized smart homes for our many clients in Crystal Bay, NV, and the surrounding areas for over 20 years. In that time, we’ve developed partnerships with leading brands in the home automation arena, with one of our favorites being Crestron.

Let’s explore what makes a Crestron Home unique and why they’re the recommended home automation system for many of our clients.

Continued Advancements

Founded in 1971, Crestron is the grandaddy of smart homes. In that time, the company has continued to develop and advance, becoming a global leader in automation for homes and businesses. At the end of 2019, they released Crestron Home OS 3, the update to its advanced operating system that unleashed the full potential of the Crestron smart home. Version 3.15 came out in 2022. 

Here are a few of the many features that make life a little easier and more enjoyable in a Crestron home.

  • User-Friendly Interface: A smart home automates lighting, motorized shades, climate, entertainment, security, and more. Like most things in life, however, if it's not easy to use, it will end up going the way of the dodo. However, Crestron’s latest operating interface is one of the easiest-to-use smart home platforms on the market. It's beautiful and simple to navigate with a layout that gives you access to the features and functions you use the most. It also offers support for multiple homes. 

Homeowners access the platform on mobile devices and designated touchscreens. You can also manage your home from exquisite, custom in-wall keypads, Crestron’s universal remote, and voice control. 

  • Circadian Rhythm Settings: Homeowners that appreciate the positive effects of aligning their environments with their circadian rhythms - for better sleep and increased energy - will appreciate the circadian rhythm setting that auto-tunes smart lighting to mimic the natural light as it changes throughout the day. 
  • Large Estates: The system can manage extensive estates, including up to 100 motorized shades, 24 different audio sources, 32 video zones, 32 thermostats, and 10 streaming cameras. It controls virtually everything, from pools and spas to gates, irrigation, appliances, and a home’s major systems.
  • Manage Your Home from Anywhere: This same intuitive interface allows you to check your home's status wherever you are in the world. Pull up the app on your mobile device to ensure the doors are locked and the lights are off. If a family member leaves without locking the back door, one tap will secure it. 

Of course, the best smart homes are unique to each family. When you work with Sierra Integrated Systems, we'll explore your lifestyles and determine the best programming to fit your needs. Do you regularly have friends and family over? We’ll set up an “Entertain” button that will set the lights to preset hues, start your favorite playlist streaming through the home and yard, illuminate the landscape lights, and ignite the outdoor fire features. 


At Sierra Integrated Systems, we use the latest technology to create the perfect smart home environment that’s beautiful, entertaining, and effortless to control. To learn more about Crestron smart homes or to schedule a complimentary consultation, contact Sierra Integrated Systems today.
