        1. Scope

        The myCrestron Residential Monitoring Service (the “Service”) enables you, as an authorized Crestron Dealer or Crestron Service Provider (“You”), to monitor and manage certain fielded Crestron residential systems of your end-user customers that are controlled by the Crestron Pyng Hub, Crestron 3-Series, or Crestron 4-Series control processors that are running the Crestron Pyng or Crestron Home operating systems (“Monitored Residential System”).

        Each Monitored Residential System can be enabled to transmit data (“Customer Data”) via the Internet from the Monitored Residential System.  This Customer Data may include, but may not be limited to: (a) Connected Device Information for the control processor and all devices connected to the control processor including IP/network address, MAC address, device name/model/serial number, and software/firmware version; (b) Approximate Geographic Location; (c) System Status Information including online status, reboot data, and software diagnostic events; (d) Device-Level Events Log including keystrokes, commands received, detected environmental conditions, and data being transmitted and received by Crestron devices on their associated local area networks; and (e) Configuration Data including connected devices, room names, device names, scene settings, and associations between buttons and device functions, in source code format;.

        This Customer Data can be displayed on an online dashboard to provide both You and Crestron a comprehensive status update of the Monitored Residential System at a single glance and will allow You and Crestron to identify and resolve technical issues (“Purpose”).

        The Service includes a robust suite of analytics tools (i.e., SMS text alerts, email alerts, and customizable widgets to visualize data in various ways) that provide insight into how the Monitored Residential Systems  are performing and being used, which should enable users of the Service to spot potential issues before problems arise and allow You to suggest potential upgrades to Monitored Residential Systems.
