All Crestron devices — both proprietary Cresnet and IP-based — can now be monitored and managed by a technology from Nuage Nine, which offers remote configuration, monitoring, and management of both legacy and IP devices
The Nuage Nine solution communicates with Crestron controllers to enable real-time, dynamic alerts to be sent to Crestron dealers through the Nuage Nine system for all proprietary Cresnet devices. Industry-standard SNMP is used to discover status information on legacy devices, therefore allowing active polling and alerting of Cresnet devices through the N9 appliance.
This new capability, enabled by services from Nuage Nine, has been added to the comprehensive functionality of Nuage Nine’s release 2 product. eHome, a leading ESC in the New York and New Jersey region, played an integral part in the development of this key functionality.
“We recognized the need to have all devices at our customer sites – both new IP-based components and legacy devices — managed through the Nuage Nine solution,” stated Jonas Buzzerio of eHome. “Our CTO, Acar Key, worked closely with Crestron and Nuage Nine to ensure that the solution would work perfectly for our many high-end customers.”
The Crestron Integrated Partner Program, which includes Nuage Nine as a member, was designed by Crestron to allow partner manufacturer’s products to operate seamlessly in a Crestron systems environment.
This new functionality allows the thousands of legacy Cresnet devices, including thermostats, remote control panels, audio distribution processors, and power controllers, to be monitored and managed remotely.
“The remote monitoring and management market is growing very quickly,” stated Dominick Accurso of Crestron Electronics, “and through the Crestron Integrated Partner Program we were able to assist Nuage Nine in bringing this key functionality to the growing market and we know it will benefit the hundreds of ESC’s with Cresnet devices installed.”
