Crestron CP3 3-Series Control System
Today’s custom homes comprise more technology than ever before, and all these systems need to be networked, managed, and controlled in fundamentally new ways. Crestron’s IP based 3-Series™ platform is engineered from the ground up to deliver a network-grade server appliance capable of faithfully handling everything from boardroom AV and home theater control to total building management.
3-Series embodies a distinctively robust, dynamic, and secure platform to elevate your system designs to higher levels of performance and reliability. Compared to other control systems, Crestron 3-Series provides a pronounced increase in processing power and speed with more memory, rock solid networking and IP control, and a unique modular programming architecture.
With more processing power and memory, faster speeds, real-time multi-tasking capability and enhanced security, the next generation Crestron CP3 3-Series Control System is the backbone for the most powerful home control platform in the world.
For the first time in a home control processor, exclusive 3-Series modular architecture enables integrators to make enhancements to only the subsystem being changed. Upgrades can now be performed on any individual subsystem - AV, lighting, climate control, home theaters, and security systems for example – while allowing the other programs to run seamlessly in the background, the same way IT performs upgrades. Until now, to make a change to one subsystem, the whole system had to be shut down.
Built-in Crestron infiNET EX™ connectivity enables seamless control for use with a wide selection of Crestron wireless interfaces including 2-way remotes, touchpanels, dimmers, switches and keypads. Integrated infiNET EX enables wireless control signals to be sent hundreds of feet through floors and walls, making CP3 even more powerful. Easy connection to the CP3 via Apple iPhone®, iPad® and Android smart devices enables convenient, reliable mobile control of any home or building system from anywhere in the world.

CP3 performs like a computer operating system, enabling real-time multi-tasking to flawlessly run up to 10 independent programs simultaneously. IT-like Core 3 OS programming architecture enables integrators to perform system maintenance and expansion in ways, and at speeds, not previously possible. For the first time, upgrades can be performed on any individual subsystem - such as AV, lighting control, HVAC, security systems and climate control - without affecting the entire system. Since each control program is independent, a restart of one program has no effect on the others. No other control system can claim this advanced feature. The result is improved, streamlined system architecture with virtually no downtime.
At up to 10 times faster than Crestron 2-Series processors and twice as fast as the first generation 3-Series MC3 (which was, until now, the fastest home control processor on the market), CP3 takes integrated home technology to a powerful new level of control functionality. With 512MB RAM and 4GB Flash memory onboard, in addition to expandable storage of up to 1TB, CP3 is engineered for the highest performance and unlimited scalability in the most demanding home automation applications. The USB 2.0 port and MMC memory card slot lets you add plenty of external storage on the fly using low cost SD cards and USB drives.
All this high power system output does not mean the CP3 is a power hog, like other control processors. Designed to save energy, CP3 is a low power consumer at an environmentally friendly 15 watts.
Built-in Core 3 UI® XPanel technology affords virtual touch screen control through any popular Web browser running on a laptop or desktop computer. Our Crestron Mobile Pro app delivers the Crestron touch screen experience to your iPhone, iPad, or Android® device letting you safely monitor and control your entire home from everywhere.
CP3 is more than just a new generation of control system. It's the future of networked, integrated home control and provides the backbone of the most powerful control platform available today. CP3 delivers true fully-integrated automation and has the horsepower to handle the most demanding requests. With every subsystem in the home connected on a single platform, all devices communicate and work together faster.
At up to 10 times faster than 2-Series processors, CP3 takes integrated home technology to a powerful new echelon of functionality, enabling real-time multi-tasking to flawlessly run up to 10 independent programs simultaneously. This innovative IT-based architecture also enables integrators to perform system maintenance and expansion in ways never before possible.
Upgrades can be performed on any individual subsystem without requiring the others to be shut down. Since only one-tenth of the entire system is being affected, everything is lightning fast. Program files are uploaded in a fraction of the time, making it faster and easier to program. Run-time efficiency and system stability are significantly increased. No other system can perform this kind of critical multitasking. In addition, CP3's highly energy-efficient design makes it a low power consumer at an environmentally friendly 15 watts.
