Topics Discussed on Episode #158
In addition to the Control4/NEEO acquisition, this episode covered two additional top news stories of the day:
The Death of Creston Pyng and Birth of Crestron Home OS 3.T– Crestron has reworked and relaunched its more mainstream Pyng environment, now renamed as Crestron Home OS 3.0.
Elan’s New Touchpanels – Nortek’s Elan brand has launched a new line of touchpanels featuring facial recognition technology.
Both of these topics received a vigorous discussion by all participants in recognition of the fact that these are both important product lines to large groups of integrators. That reality was reflected by the panel, as one of the integrators (Feinberg) is deeply involved with Control4, which the other integrator (Whitaker) is a big Crestron house.
Consequently, they both had pretty deep insights into these brands’ various product moves. And in my case, I played the slightly more objective outside observer.
