Prodigy® Ships PMC3 Control System, Delivering More Power, Speed and Memory
Powered by the New Core 3 OS, PMC3 Prodigy® 3-Series Media Controller Control System Provides a Powerful IT-based Backbone for Simplified, Affordable Whole House Automation
Prodigy® today announced that its new generation PMC3 Prodigy® 3-Series Media Controller control system, the latest advancement of its award-winning home control line, is now shipping. Powered by the new Core 3 OS, the PMC3 control system provide a powerful IT-based backbone for simplified, affordable whole house control and automation. Combining affordability with faster processing speeds, onscreen display, long-range wireless support and more memory, PMC3 delivers superior control power, greater expandability, and increased design flexibility for any home.
"PMC3 is much more than just a new control system, it’s the future of affordable fully integrated home automation, with the power and flexibility to control the whole home locally and remotely," says Fred Bargetzi, Crestron Vice President of Technology. "At such a budget-friendly price for a processor with this much power, PMC3 brings the enhanced lifestyle of whole-house automation within reach for more homeowners than ever before."
While a single PMC3 delivers ample processing power to run any size home on its own, it also provides the added flexibility of connecting multiple PMC3 control systems on the same home network for applications where distributed architecture systems are desired. A dynamic on-screen display expands control to the TV, where an easy-to-use graphic interface guides homeowners through simple control of home theaters, lighting, shades, thermostats, security systems, and other networked home devices. Using a Prodigy handheld remote or touch screen, whole house control is fast, easy and reliable.
Using their favorite mobile devices such as iPhone®, iPad® or Android™ smartphones and tablets, along with the Crestron Mobile Pro® app, homeowners can also control virtually any device in their home no matter where they are.
Built-in long-range wireless technology enables control signals to be sent hundreds of feet through floors and walls without the need for separate gateways, making PMC3 even more versatile. System design is now even easier and installations are incredibly clean. No more breaking through walls and floors to run bulky wires and cables. Connecting directly to a PMC3 control system, the new P-CBDEX Prodigy Wireless Keypad provides the versatility of controlling lights or a multiroom audio system, while the new P-KPLEX Prodigy Wireless Lighting Keypad enables simple, multi-way control of Prodigy wireless switches, dimmers and lamp dimmers.
