Now Available: Crestron XPanel control for Apple Macintosh

Mac Users Can Now Enjoy Remote “Virtual Touchpanel” Control of Crestron Systems


Now available, Crestron XPanel for Mac® enables system managers and end users to access and control Crestron systems from any connected Mac computer or laptop. XPanel for Mac transforms an iMac® or MacBook® into a virtual touchpanel, and is a great complement to other Apple® products that are integrated with Crestron, including the iPhone®, iPod® and iPod touch®.


XPanel for Mac

“XPanel was built on the industry’s first IP-based control technology, which Crestron developed more than 10 years ago,” said Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing. “Originally designed for PCs, we are now pleased to offer the same capabilities to Mac users, particularly in schools and residences where Macs are in frequent use.”

XPanel for Mac replicates the Crestron touchpanel experience on a computer screen, so a client can remotely check to see if lights were left on and turn them off, or arm/disarm the security system from any location. System managers can take control of a classroom and help an instructor get a presentation up and running quickly, without physically going to the room. With XPanel for Mac, the screen graphics are designed with the Mac user in mind, making remote access simple and intuitive.

For more information on XPanel for MAC or if you are interested in having XPanel for MAC added to your Crestron system, please contact Residential Media Systems Ltd. now.
