It’s time to cut out the middleman. Crestron just announced the P-CBDEX and the P-KPLEX, two new wireless keypads that connect directly to the Prodigy home control system. That means there is absolutely no need for any type of gateway.

That’s because all Prodigy control systems, such as the new PMC3 and PMC3-XP, feature a built-in wireless gateway. No separate network is needed, making for a cleaner, easier installation process.

Of course, it’s pretty cool as well. The P-CBDEX offers both lighting and multiroom audio control inside one Prodigy keypad. It has access to on/off functions, as well as audio source selection, volume, lighting presets, and more. Featuring six green pinhole LED lights for 2-way feedback, this model can accommodate up to eight buttons.

The P-KPLEX is more of a rocker—meaning it provides rocker-type control. Designed specifically to do lighting, the P-KPLEX is all about simplicity. That theme runs through the installation, the design, and actual use of the unit.

Crestron’s Prodigy systems and keypads are available now, exclusively through the Crestron’s dealer network. To find out more about the products and pricing, check the Crestron website for a list of dealers in your area.
