Crestron’s new IOEX modules offer an easy and inexpensive way to add wireless control of serial, IR and relay devices in homes, commercial buildings. The INET-IOEX-IRCOM enables reliable long distance wireless communication between Crestron 3-Series™ control systems and devices such as TVs, cable boxes, displays, projector screens, AV components, switchers, and other equipment that is controllable using basic serial or IR commands.
The INET-IOEX-RYIO provides a low-voltage relay and digital input control interface for remote devices such as garage door openers, sensors, motorised screens and other relay-controlled devices, while providing the same wireless communication to a Crestron control system. Using either or both modules, the connected device can then be controlled from any Crestron user interface such as a touchscreen, keypad, remote, or from any Apple® or Android™ smart device.
At about the size of a deck of cards, INET-IOEX-IRCOM features one RS-232 and two IR control ports and can be mounted discreetly behind a display or inconspicuously on a wall near the desired device. INET-IOEX-RYIO provides two isolated relays and two digital input ports while communicating with a Crestron control system over the infiNET EX wireless network to enable control and monitoring of the remote equipment.
