Crestron builds the technology that integrates technology. Its automation and control solutions for homes and buildings lets people control entire environments with the push of a button, integrating systems such as AV, lighting, shading, security, BMS and HVAC to provide greater comfort, convenience and security. All Crestron products are designed and built to work together as a complete system, enabling people to monitor, manage and control everything from one platform.
Crestron Fusion represents the company’s ultimate mission for optimising a business’s most important investments: people, spaces and technology. As an enterprise management platform, Crestron Fusion adds a layer of intelligence to everyday operations with its monitoring and management software. It aims to maximise the productivity and efficiency of an organisation’s assets by streamlining processes and minimising resource wastage.
With Crestron Fusion, people are able to quickly locate workspaces and easily connect to the tools they need, reducing wasted time and frustration by enabling productivity. Technology managers are able to gain complete visibility of all rooms and buildings, as well as AV devices and systems, to maximise space usage, and make data-driven decisions about workspace utilisation and energy consumption. The increased visibility from Crestron Fusion also allows for maximum equipment uptime on a robust, secure and scalable platform.
Crestron Fusion’s key points of excellence are its room scheduling, help desk and support as well as its global device monitoring and data reporting capabilities. All are designed to work together as a complete system, delivering greater comfort, convenience, and security.
Crestron Fusion also actively collects data and generates reports in order to help an organisation optimise its investments. With a comprehensive understanding of how a room is used, how often it is in demand, what resources are being taken advantage of, who is using it and how many people are occupying the space, managers are better informed on how to make decisions on resource allocation and potential.
Further, Crestron Fusion Insight provides facilities managers with interactive, real-time 360-degree 3D visualisation of entire buildings across the business, and the status of the individual spaces within them, making it easy to visualise the physical plant.
Crestron Fusion is available as an on-premise or cloud solution, able to be deployed via the business’s platform of choice. Crestron Fusion was first made available as a private cloud service, in addition to on-premise, in mid 2015. Crestron Fusion Cloud delivers all the benefits of enterprise management without the physical investment or responsibility. Hosted on a dedicated, private server, and employing standard security protocols, Crestron Fusion Cloud is always “on” and available to the user no matter where they are. The IT/AV manager simply enters the unique URL and host name to access all of the power and functionality of Crestron Fusion, just as if it resided on the network in the company building.
