Things to consider, if you look at Crestron devices
Crestron is enterprise-grade hardware. In this space, that means that it is devices that do not run warm or needs often reboots when compared to what you can call consumer-grade equipment. This differentiation is all back to everyday reliability.
Crestron conference room displays run on a basic version of Android to make them very stable and barebones. They are built to run 24/7/365.
Crestron has an MDM (Mobile Device Manager), meaning you can do multi-device deployments with ease.
Here is a list of suggested topics when you consider the hardware for your workspace setting:
- The number of needed devices
- The ease of setting up the equipment (MDM or no MDM solution)
- The expected lifetime of the devices
- The warranty period for the device
- The required daily/weekly/monthly maintenance
All these subjects should be taken into consideration when selecting the hardware platform.
Please remember that AskCody is what we usually call "hardware agnostic." This position means that we do not have any preference for what type of hardware you use or should use for the AskCody platform. That can be on iPads, Phillips devices, Glorystar devices, Crestron devices, etc. We execute on this, as the choice of hardware depends on your specific setup and budgets. Still, we will gladly help to arrive at a perfect combined solution between software and hardware together with you and the hardware supplier, like Crestron or a Crestron reseller in your location. We are happy to consult you on this critical matter.
