Crestron Control® for Computers

XPANEL

Transforms any computer into a virtual Crestron® touch screen.

More Details


Transform any computer into a virtual Crestron® touch screen with XPanel.

Crestron XPanel lets you control anything in your home, office or classroom using a laptop or desktop computer running Windows® or Mac®. XPanel works on any computer platform and any screen size using a mouse, touch screen monitor, or other pointing device. It can be installed and run as a desktop application, or you can launch it like a Website using any Web browser. Use XPanel as a low-cost control solution for a small classroom AV system, to monitor your home from the office, as an interactive kiosk in a lobby or museum exhibit, or to enable centralized control of lighting and climate control in an office building or conference center. For virtually any application, XPanel can provide a robust and scalable IP based control solution.

Programming for XPanel is the same as for a Crestron touch screen, smartphone, or tablet, affording a computer-based user interface with the same look and feel as any other touch screen or mobile device in your system. XPanel supports Smart Graphics™, delivering the Crestron touch screen experience to your computer using buttons, sliders, gauges, dynamic text, scrolling lists, and customizable themes. A touch screen project developed using Smart Graphics can be instantly transformed into an XPanel project, dramatically reducing programming time. Touch screen projects using Smart Graphics can even be launched right on a computer by simply changing the file extension, offering a simple way for programmers to test touch screen projects without an actual touch screen present.

Every Crestron control system supports XPanel natively, so it's easy and affordable to add remote access to any system. Using XPanel, your computer communicates directly with your 2-Series or 3-Series® control system over Ethernet or the Internet. No special servers or service fees are required. Establishing a friendly URL for a residential or small business control system is enabled using the myCrestron Dynamic DNS service.

Whether you just want to use a computer to control a single video projector, or add full remote access to a larger home automation or commercial building management system, XPanel offers an easy, cost-effective option.
