How To Practically Use The Crestron Pyng Smart Tech System

by KP Evolutions on July 9, 2018

It is easy to get excited when new tech or gear is released, especially ones that will make your life easier like smart home technology.

The problem is that while smart home tech can revolutionize your life, it has not always been easy to visualize how to use it properly. 

If you aren't the most tech-savvy person, investing in smart home gear can be scary because it's so difficult to actually see it in action.

We are going to help clarify that up.

As the Crestron Pyng system is one of the most popular choices for smart home "do it all" systems it would make sense to start with it.

Crestron Pyng

It is a simple-to-use app downloaded instantly on your phone, tablet, or computer, built with software that gives you complete control of your smart home set up.

A cool aspect of it is that while it functions effortlessly with all Crestron products, has the capability to control almost every other smart home device on the market.

Let's dive into the setup.

The Setup

Crestron is the chief of all things in smart home automation.

They service an international audience at a massive rate, and they have been doing it for over 40 years.

They developed Pyng to be the controlling hub of other smart tech products within your home.

Setting up Pyng does require expertise in Crestron products and the know-how to program it solely for your needs.

Therefore, an expert technician will program it to interact with all your tech, and that is usually covered in its installation. 

So, essentially that's the easiest aspect for the user because you have to do nothing!

It centralizes the control and management to just an application on your phone or tablet. 

Can it get any easier than that?

Let's discuss more on what operating Pyng and what it might look like to utilize it in your own home.

How To Operate It

At the risk of sounding sardonic, we want to make it as simple as possible.

The phone you use all day...the one you might be reading from right now. It's literally as easy as using an app on your phone.

Check out this video on how to set up and use it. 

Pyng Into The Future

Once your Crestron expert sets up Pyng with your other smart home tech, you are now able to enjoy the advantages of total automation.

Pyng gives you the power to control:

  • Thermostats
  • Lighting
  • Speakers
  • Television
  • Window shades
  • Security systems
  • Door locks

Pyng also gives you the opportunity to customize your settings down to each room it is connected to. 

No more wasting time opening or closing shades and obtaining the lighting level just right for what you want.

Just a press of a button and your room's scene is exactly the way you set it up!

If you are trying to save on energy costs, Pyng offers a built-in scheduler to help you manage your homes HVAC and lighting when you aren't around.

The scheduler works in the background responding to what is going on outside.

Pyng connects to photosensors that determine the amount of natural light in a space and adjust the rooms lighting to better suit that space.

For example, maybe you want your living area lighting to turn on when the sun sets or the shades to close in the middle of the afternoon to block the sun.

Just like the lighting and shades, your audio system can also be fully customizable. 

Imagine being able to walk from room to room and enjoy the same tune or even be able to have music playing in the spaces you want at the level you set.

Pyng can also provide you with the peace of mind you want in regards to home security.

Never leave your household panicked that you forgot to lock the door or set the alarm system again.

Simply one touch and your house is protected again.

In Conclusion

Smart home tech is no longer something to fear, but it is actually very simple to use.

Crestron has a created an extremely simple product for the customer so anyone at any stage of experience can use.

All that power and simplicity in just one app is what sets Pyng apart from other smart automation software.
