Crestron Delivers the Ultimate Home Office Companion: First Dedicated Device for Audio Conferencing and Smart Home Control
The Crestron Home Audio Conferencing System offers an intuitive user interface to switch seamlessly between conference calls and dynamic smart home control.
Rockleigh, NJ – December 16, 2020 — Crestron, the global leader in home automation and workplace technology, today introduces the new smart home office companion, the Crestron Home Audio Conferencing System (UC-MM30-R). Delivering enterprise-quality conferencing, plus complete control of a Crestron Home™ automation system, the MM30-R is a sleek home office solution for today’s work-from-home workforce.
Realtor.com recently reported “Zoom Rooms” as the new in-demand housing trend. To be successful, a home office needs robust and reliable technology to make a day full of conference calls easy and hassle-free. The MM30-R is designed to easily convert any office into a conferencing space. The modern, low-profile design includes a 7-inch high-resolution touch screen, a high-fidelity speaker, and four-microphone array that captures 360-degree, long-range pickup. Colleagues won’t be able to tell whether users are dialing in from home or the corporate office.
The MMR30-R is the dedicated audio device for meetings launched from a PC or Mac device. From the touch screen, users can control call volume as well as the entire Crestron Home system, including lights, TVs, thermostats, security cameras, and more. Scenes and schedules made with the Crestron Home system can be customized to adjust any combination of devices at once; for example, launching the perfect call setting. With an “On A Call” scene, the lights brighten, shades close, music pauses, and an indicator light outside the door turns red. When the call ends, users can tap to start their “Off A Call” scene which then deactivates the indicator light, restarts the music, and adjusts the lights and shades. Users can call in using Microsoft Teams® or Zoom Rooms™, Slack™, Google Meet™, and other conferencing applications.
“Today’s hybrid workforce has realized they need their home office spaces to provide flexibility, reduced complexity, and the organizational functionality that they have when they are in their workplace, but the current solutions on the market don’t offer enterprise-grade robustness nor integration with high-performance home control solutions,” said John Clancy, Vice President, Residential at Crestron. “The Crestron Home Audio Conferencing System uniquely provides today’s executives the high-performance conferencing solutions they’re used to at work, in their home.”
The MM30-R requires no custom design or programming when added to a Crestron Home system by a Crestron dealer. It can be connected via Wi-Fi® or Ethernet communication links, with Power over Ethernet for remote management and monitoring.
The Crestron Home Audio Conferencing System has a $1,500 U.S. MSRP and is now available for pre-order through Crestron dealers.
