Crestron Home Automation is the perfect way to add the convenience of an air conditioning or heating system to your home, without needing the expense of a professional installation. With Crestron, you can not only control and monitor your heating and air conditioning system but also temperature-controlled lighting control for your home.
Installing your system will require you to purchase a control panel that has additional components. These include thermostat, humidifier, fan and heat pump, to name a few.
Before you begin to install your system, you must first look at your existing control panel. The circuit breaker should be used to connect your air conditioner to the Crestron control panel. Most of the time this connection will be hidden, meaning, it is not easily visible.
Once the circuit breaker is in place, you are ready to begin wiring your system to the control panel. Your Crestron system will need the following connections.
An extension cord will allow you to run the light switch, and the AC control panel off of the same circuit breakers. To make sure your control panel is properly balanced, you should place one end of the extension cord into the breaker, and the other end into the panel.
If you are using a wall outlet, you will want to connect the control panel to the power cord. You can connect the remote control (or an extension cord if you do not have a wall outlet), to your control panel, either on your wall or on the floor near the wall outlet.
This is important because if you have a surge protector, you will need to unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. If you are using extension cords, you may be able to plug the cord into an outlet without the surge protector. However, if you do not have a surge protector, you will want to unplug the cord and plug it into the power source before turning on the system.
To test if you have correctly connected your system to the control panel, you can use a flashlight or an air conditioner. If you see either of these lights on, the system is properly connected.
Once you have successfully tested your system, you will want to start connecting the main units. You can hook up all of the main units, or just one. You will want to verify that you have the correct unit when you are installing the system.
When you are installing the controls, you will want to use the same type of connections and outlets as you did when you were connecting the control panel. Make sure they are securely attached to each other.
With today’s home automation systems, you will find all kinds of sensors to help you determine how well your system is working. Some of the most popular include the Honeywell Alarm System, Home Security Monitoring and real-time monitoring and control.
Whatever your preference, Crestron Home Automation is a great option for your home automation systems. So, whether you choose to use the heat and air, or you choose to use the humidity control, you will find that there is a system that will fit your lifestyle.
