Crestron remote control now compatible with Apple TV, Siri & HomeKit

06 Aug 2019 | Rasmus Larsen |

In late 2018, Apple released tvOS 12 with support for home control systems. Crestron's touch screen remote now works with Apple TV, Siri, and HomeKit (via 9to5Mac).

IP & voice control of Apple TV

It took a while but Crestron's TSR-310 touch remote control now works with Apple TV, Siri, and HomeKit, allowing you to control Apple TV via buttons or voice commands through the built-in microphone. Crestron says that its touch remote can control multiple Apple TV units. Siri integration allows you to control basic features of Apple TV and help you find specific content through voice commands such as "show me the latest action movies". To get it working with HomeKit the remote must be programmed. - "IP and voice control of Apple TV is here! Only the partnership of two leading innovators could produce a user experience like this, with Apple TV, Siri, and HomeKit technologies integrated flawlessly with Crestron," the company said.

Crestron - Apple TV

Crestron is one of several home control systems that can control multiple media and home devices from a single interface. Competing platforms Control4 and Savant are also partnering with Apple. In addition, Apple TV can be voice controlled via HomePod. Universal remote controls such as those from Logitech - or just the TV's remote - can control Apple TV via HDMI CEC commands. Siri is not supported on these systems. The Crestron TSR-310 touch remote costs $1000. Instructions on how to set-up Apple TV, Siri, and HomeKit integration can be found here. - Source: Crestron via 9to5Mac
