Condeco and Crestron Integrate Their Smart Building Technology in a Coup for User Experience
announces that their award-winning room
booking system now integrates with Crestron's
monitoring and scheduling software, Crestron Fusion®, and Crestron's
room scheduling touch screens. This provides a solution for automating
everything from AV equipment to lights and shades, as Crestron Fusion
will turn systems on and off in line with meeting times in Condeco's
This automation will contribute to on-going efficiency savings,
empowering clients to manage room bookings as part of a wider smart
building ecosystem. The integration comes as businesses increasingly
turn to smart building technologies to achieve energy efficiency, cost
savings, and green credentials.
Condeco, who won a Queen's Award last year for Innovation, enables users
to book meeting spaces directly from a web application, mobile app, or
MS Outlook Add-in. With Crestron scheduling panels, bookings show up on
screens outside each meeting room, and with Crestron Fusion, room usage
data is available for management to analyze.
Companies with previous investment in Crestron room screens will be able
to add the features and enhancements of Condeco software to this
existing hardware through the new API.
The integration will also create a more streamlined experience for
employees. Bookings created in the Condeco calendar can trigger certain
Crestron default meeting pre-sets such as Presentation, Audio and Video
Conferencing. Users benefit from smoother meeting experiences, as
desired Crestron room actions such as powering up the TV or logging in
to a video conference can be preset.
Paul Statham, Founder and CEO of Condeco Ltd, comments: "Our mission at
Condeco has always been to make the workplace more intuitive - in
everything from office layout to the technology we use every day. We
think it's a pressing business issue to ensure that people can
collaborate more easily and effectively at work.
"By bringing together our room booking software with the functionality
of Crestron Fusion, we've covered the entire process of setting up a
meeting - from initially booking a room to signing in to a meeting.
Paul continues: "We wanted to give customers who have already invested
heavily in Crestron touch screens and control systems the opportunity to
use the full features of our Condeco booking system."
