Crestron Offers Room Scheduling Touch Panel

Crestron introduced the TPMC-4SM, a low-profile 4-inch touch panel for mounting outside a room's entrance to view calendars, reserve rooms, and detect room status for impromptu meetings.

Crestron introduced the TPMC-4SM, a low-profile 4-inch touch panel for mounting outside a room's entrance to view calendars, reserve rooms, and detect room status for impromptu meetings. In Room Scheduling Mode, the 4SM communicates directly with Crestron RoomView Server Edition, enabling users to view the status of any room on the network and book space for immediately or future use, right from the touchpanel. High-speed Ethernet communications with PoE (Power over Ethernet) delivers a single-wire solution for easy network integration.

Room Scheduling Mode does not require programming or a control system, according to the company, thereby simplifying installation and reducing cost. Inputs for occupancy sensors allow the 4SM to identify the room as "occupied" or "available" and adjust the network calendar accordingly, maximizing efficient and appropriate use of these valuable meeting spaces.

To function just like any other Crestron touchpanel, the 4SM also has a Touch panel Mode that enables connection to a control system via Ethernet to support custom applications.

The 4SM is designed for surface mount installation on a wall, lectern or similar flat surface using a single-gang wall box. A multisurface mount kit enables attachment to glass or brick, and includes a paintable raceway for hiding wire. Another mounting option is a tabletop base in a sleek new form factor. The engravable bezel is available in smooth black or white, with or without 10 backlit buttons. To provide room status feedback that is visible from a distance, the buttons will glow red or green to indicate occupied/unoccupied.

Other capabilities of this widescreen, color touch screen display include high performance graphics, streaming audio and video, two-way IP intercom, WAV file feedback, and a proximity sensor that activates the panel upon approach.
