Basalte are a Belgian company that have been around a while and have had a series of very interesting products for some time. Most of their product range has worked on KNX or RS-485 buses and, as such, was not as straight-forward as it might be to interface with Crestron systems.
The show at Sandown on May 9th and 10th has really grown into the best showcase in the UK for our industry, and is the ideal opportunity for us to talk with more installers and develop new relationships as part of our future plans.
Crestron have been working on auto-updating of systems for a while now. Newly released tools have really helped us to roll out our implementation of this. We are using our own secure file server to offer unattended updates for systems. Crestron systems can check in each night (or on a regular schedule) and see if we have put any new software or firmware for them. This means we can centrally manage all our systems and push new software easily and safely.
