Crestron & Apple partnering for HomeKit & Apple TV integrations

Crestron's popular TSR-310 touch screen home automation remote is getting full Siri, HomeKit, and Apple TV support in a firmware update.




Crestron made the announcement on Monday morning. The update process is multi-fold, with device databases and a firmware update to the remote itself.

Following the update procedure, users of the TSR-310 will be able to control either one Apple TV or multiple linked by device name, connect to HomeKit, and route voice to the currently selected Apple TV.

Beyond the firmware update to the remote, support is coming soon to Crestron Home as well. Crestron promises that benefits from the Apple and Crestron partnership will arrive with the OS 3 update to the system.

The Crestron TSR-310 system is not an inexpensive one. Crestron relies on a dealer and installer network for sales, with pricing variable on what the customer needs in total.
