Kayder wins Best Incorporation of the Crestron Pyng® OS at the Global Home Technology Awards 2019

Updated: Jun 24, 2019

The Challenge

Completely update from OS 1 to OS 2 the Crestron system in a 1,800 square-meter, 30-room estate, originally deployed with first generation Crestron Pyng software.

The Solution

Re-starting from scratch, the 30-room home was completely re-configured in a day-and-a-half with Crestron Pyng OS 2, including custom lighting scenes, AV in 20+ zones, security setup, and control of shading, temperature, and third-party devices.


Once Crestron Pyng OS 2 was released, the client and the team at Kayder decided to upgrade the system to take advantage of the new OS’s support for video and other new features. Crestron Pyng OS 2 made it possible to seamlessly integrate control of Sonos devices, TVs, and AV receivers, and in record time. “The client isn't too techy and so wasn't entirely sure of what kind of automation he wanted in the home, initially,” said David Edgar of Kayder.

“We took him through the concepts and let his imagination run wild.”

“We wrote down everything that we wanted and I think we've got it,” said the owner. “I'm the old guy who likes to turn a power switch on and off you know, but this Crestron system has been a breath of fresh air. It's amazing; you press a button and the blinds open and close. Simple little things that you dream of having.”


The homeowner was so pleased with the system upgrade that he’s called in the Kayder team on numerous occasions to further add to the system. His elderly mother, who has her own wing of the house, has also found the Crestron system easy to use.

“We use Crestron Pyng OS 2 because it integrates with pretty much everything else on the market; it's easy to use, looks flash, and everyone seems to enjoy using it,”

said Edgar.
