Система керування 4-го покоління
The AV4 is a secure, high‑performance control processor with a powerful 4-Series control engine and an enhanced feature set, including available control card expansion slots (via the CAGE3 accessory) and dedicated control subnet ports. The AV4 is designed to integrate and automate technology within any modern networked home, commercial building, or government facility. The isolated control subnet port provides a Gigabit Ethernet LAN dedicated to Crestron devices.
4-Series Control Engine
4-Series control systems come equipped with an upgraded multicore CPU, delivering a sizable speed and performance increase compared to all Crestron 3‑Series® control processors. The improved performance allows 4-Series control systems to handle the increasing demands of an advanced automated system. Crestron 4-Series delivers a dynamic and secure control system platform capable of managing a room full of disparate technologies.
Reliable networking and IP control afford seamless integration with other systems and devices, with add-on control capability using Crestron touch screens, wireless remotes, and mobile device apps, as well as remote management through Crestron Fusion® software and the XiO Cloud® service.
Modular Programming Architecture
The AV4 provides a modular programming architecture that allows it to run up to ten programs simultaneously. Programmers can develop and run independent, device‑specific programs, enabling each program to be optimized for a specific function and allowing for changes to be made to one program without affecting the whole system.
Dedicated Control Subnet
The Crestron Control Subnet is a Gigabit Ethernet network dedicated to Crestron devices. Via the Control Subnet ports, an installer can connect up to four touch screens or wireless gateways or can add Crestron PoE switches (CEN‑SW‑POE‑5 or CEN‑SWPOE‑16, both sold separately) to handle multiple touch screens, gateways, AV components, and other devices. Each port also supports PoE+ using the optional PW-5430DUS power supply (sold separately). Auto‑configuration of the entire subnet is performed by the AV4, discovering each device and assigning IP addresses without any extra effort from the installer.
A separate LAN port provides a single-point connection to the local network, requiring only one IP address for the entire control system. The LAN port allows for interconnectivity between devices on the local subnet and other devices, systems, servers, and WAN/internet connections outside the local subnet. For sensitive applications that require heightened security, the entire Control Subnet can be isolated completely from the local network.
Onboard Control Ports
Through a full complement of onboard control ports, the AV4 can be integrated with a wide variety of audio, video, lighting, motorized shades, thermostats, door locks, sensors, security systems, and other equipment.
Expanded connectivity can be provided to the AV4 via Crestron control port expansion modules, Ethernet to Cresnet bridges, wired Ethernet I/O modules, wireless network I/O modules, or infiNET EX® network wireless gateways (all sold separately).
Crestron Fusion Room Monitoring and Scheduling
Crestron Fusion provides an integrated platform for creating smart buildings that save energy and enhance worker productivity. As part of a complete managed network, the AV4 works with Crestron Fusion to enable remote scheduling, monitoring, and control of rooms and technology from a central help desk or mobile app. It also enables organizations to reduce energy consumption by tracking real-time usage and automating control of AV, lighting, shades, and HVAC.
XiO Cloud Provisioning and Management
4-Series control systems leverage the power and flexibility of XiO Cloud services, enabling users to remotely provision, monitor, and manage Crestron devices across an enterprise network. XiO Cloud can be used to configure and load programs to the control system before it is received, making the control system fully functional as soon as it is connected to the network. Crestron XiO Cloud is built on the Microsoft® Azure® software platform and utilizes Microsoft’s industry leading Azure IoT Hub technology. XiO Cloud enables installers and IT managers to deploy and manage thousands of devices simultaneously. Unlike other virtual machine based cloud solutions, Azure services provide unlimited scalability to suit the ever growing needs of an enterprise.
Enhanced Enterprise-Grade Security
The AV4 is an enterprise‑class control processor that can be deployed across hundreds of spaces and set up easily using a web browser, Crestron Toolbox™ software, or XiO Cloud. It employs standard network security protocols, including 802.1X network access control, Active Directory® service authentication, SSH, TLS, and HTTPS to ensure reliability and compliance with your organization’s IT policies.
The AV4 is configured to meet Crestron’s enhanced security standards right out of the box. The AV4 ships with authentication enabled and requires that an administrator account be created before access is granted to device configuration and control interfaces.
SNMP V3 Support
Built-in SNMP V3 support enables integration with third-party IT management software, allowing network administrators to manage and control Crestron systems on the network in an IT-friendly format.
Control Card Expansion Slots
Additional control ports can be added to the AV4 using control cards and the CAGE3 control card expansion cage. The CAGE3 accessory installs in the AV4, providing three control card expansion slots on the AV4 rear panel. Adding the CAGE3 option affords great expansion capability without requiring any additional rack space.
Native support for the BACnet communication protocol provides a direct interface to third-party building management systems over Ethernet, simplifying integration with HVAC, security, and other systems. Using BACnet, each system runs independently but communicates together on one platform.
Apple HomeKit Integration
The AV4 supports integration with an Apple® HomeKit® technology system. Once the AV4 is paired with a HomeKit system via SIMPL programming, a Crestron TSR-310 can be used to control supported Apple devices. A pairing QR code is affixed to the AV4 that makes it easy to pair the control system directly to the Apple Home app.
