The CP4N is a secure, high-performance control processor with a powerful 4-Series control engine. The CP4N is designed to integrate and automate technology within any modern networked home, commercial building, or government facility. An isolated control subnet port provides a Gigabit Ethernet LAN dedicated to Crestron devices.
4-Series control systems come equipped with an upgraded multicore CPU, delivering a sizable speed and performance increase compared to all Crestron 3-Series® control processors. The improved performance allows 4-Series control systems to handle the increasing demands of an advanced automated system. Crestron 4-Series delivers a dynamic and secure control system platform capable of managing a room full of disparate technologies.
Reliable networking and IP control afford seamless integration with other systems and devices, with add-on control capability using Crestron touch screens, wireless remotes, and mobile device apps, as well as remote management through Crestron Fusion® software and the Crestron XiO Cloud™ service.
The CP4N provides a modular programming architecture that allows the CP4N to run up to ten programs simultaneously. Programmers can develop and run independent, device-specific programs, enabling each program to be optimized for a specific function and allowing for changes to be made to one program without affecting the whole system.
The Crestron Control Subnet is a Gigabit Ethernet network dedicated to Crestron devices. Via the Control Subnet port, an installer can connect a single touch screen or wireless gateway or can add a Crestron PoE switch (CEN-SW-POE-5 or CEN-SWPOE-16, both sold separately) to handle multiple touch screens, gateways, AV components, and other devices. Auto-configuration of the entire subnet is performed by the CP4N, discovering each device and assigning IP addresses without any extra effort from the installer.
A separate LAN port provides a single-point connection to the local network, requiring only one IP address for the entire control system. The LAN port allows for interconnectivity between devices on the local subnet and other devices, systems, servers, and WAN/internet connections outside the local subnet. For sensitive applications that require heightened security, the entire Control Subnet can be isolated completely from the local network.
Through a full complement of onboard control ports, the CP4N can be integrated with a wide variety of audio, video, lighting, motorized shades, thermostats, door locks, sensors, security systems, and other equipment.
Expanded connectivity can be provided to the CP4 via Crestron control port expansion modules, Ethernet to Cresnet bridges, wired Ethernet I/O modules, wireless network I/O modules, or infiNET EX® network wireless gateways (all sold separately).
Crestron Fusion provides an integrated platform for creating smart buildings that save energy and enhance worker productivity. As part of a complete managed network in a corporate enterprise, college campus, convention center, or any other facility, the CP4N works with Crestron Fusion to enable remote scheduling, monitoring, and control of rooms and technology from a central help desk or mobile app. It also enables organizations to reduce energy consumption by tracking real-time usage and automating control of AV, lighting, shades, and HVAC.
4-Series control systems leverage the power and flexibility of Crestron XiO Cloud services, enabling users to remotely provision, monitor, and manage Crestron devices across an enterprise network. Crestron XiO Cloud can be used to configure and load programs to the control system before it is received, making the control system fully functional as soon as it is connected to the network. Crestron XiO Cloud is built on the Microsoft® Azure® software platform and utilizes Microsoft's industry leading Azure IoT Hub technology. Crestron XiO Cloud enables installers and IT managers to deploy and manage thousands of devices in the time it previously took to manage just one. Unlike other virtual machine based cloud solutions, Azure services provide unlimited scalability to suit the ever growing needs of an enterprise.
The CP4N is an enterprise-class control processor that can be deployed across hundreds of spaces and set up easily using a web browser, Crestron Toolbox™ software, or Crestron XiO Cloud. It employs standard network security protocols, including 802.1X network access control, Active Directory® service authentication, SSH, TLS, and HTTPS to ensure reliability and compliance with your organization’s IT policies.
The CP4N is configured to meet Crestron's enhanced security standards right out of the box. The CP4N ships with authentication enabled and requires that an administrator account be created before access is granted to device configuration and control interfaces.
Built-in SNMP V3 support enables integration with third-party IT management software, allowing network administrators to manage and control Crestron systems on the network in an IT-friendly format.
Native support for the BACnet communication protocol provides a direct interface to third-party building management systems over Ethernet, simplifying integration with HVAC, security, and other systems. Using BACnet, each system runs independently but communicates together on one platform.
The CP4N supports integration with an Apple® HomeKit® technology system. Once the CP4N is paired with a HomeKit system via SIMPL programming, a Crestron TSR-310 can be used to control supported Apple devices. A pairing QR code is affixed to the CP4N that makes it easy to pair the control system directly to the Apple Home app.2
