The 4-Series Media Room Controller for Crestron Home™ OS (MC4-R) provides a secure, high-performance, cost-effective control processor and interface with the embedded Crestron Home operating system. Its small form factor and versatile mounting options makes it ideal for smaller Crestron Home systems such as single-room systems, small to medium-sized homes, and MDUs (multidwelling units). The MC4-R comes equipped with a 4-Series multicore CPU processor that delivers remarkable speed and performance while handling the demands of an advanced automated system.
The MC4-R is a perfect replacement for a PYNG-HUB processor when upgrading a smaller system from Crestron Pyng® OS to Crestron Home.
Built-In Crestron Home OS
Crestron Home unlocks the full potential of a smart home. It provides dealers with the ability to deliver a sleek user interface that includes fluid dynamic room controls and new features such as support for multiple homes, favorites, custom access, room image customizations, and more.
Wired and Wireless Device Support
Through a full complement of onboard control ports, the MC4-R allows Crestron Home to integrate with a wide variety of audio, video, lighting, motorized shades, thermostats, door locks, sensors, security systems, and other equipment. The MC4-R also provides a built-in infiNET EX® wireless gateway that allows wireless devices to be paired directly to the control system and then added to the Crestron Home system1.
System expansion is made easy using the CEN-IO series of wired Ethernet modules (sold separately), which provide additional COM (CEN-IO-COM-102), digital input (CEN-IO-DIGIN-104), IR (CEN-IO-IR-104), or relay (CEN-IO-RY-104) ports for integration with all kinds of third-party equipment.
