ROCKLEIGH, N.J., Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Crestron, the global leader in home automation and workplace technology, and Delos™, a wellness real estate and technology firm based in New York, today announce an integration between the Crestron 3-Series® Control System and the Delos DARWIN™ Home Wellness Intelligence Network aimed at delivering a healthier home through new advanced features on the platform. As of today, Crestron is offering DARWIN to integrators and dealers in North America. A demo of the newly integrated platform can be viewed here.
In response to demand for well-living and design during the COVID-19 pandemic, Crestron and Delos collaborated to provide a seamless experience that transforms the home space through intelligent scenes designed to help support immune health and reduce the transmission of airborne illnesses. The Crestron 3-Series Control System integrates with DARWIN to control lighting, shades, HVAC and audio within the DARWIN platform. Advanced features like control of tunable lighting, circadian cycles and Delos Dawn Simulation work with the Crestron 3-Series Control System to improve the home experience. Users can now access DARWIN via a Crestron TSW touch screen or their mobile device.
"In the midst of the global pandemic, it was critical for Crestron to partner with Delos to deliver advanced technology in the home that promotes healthy living and well-being," said John Clancy, Vice President, Residential at Crestron. "Crestron recognizes the importance of a healthy home environment, and it turns out technology can play a critical role. In cooperation with Delos, we are now able to improve the lives of many people by offering a more robust wellness ecosystem in the comfort of their home."
DARWIN is designed to enhance health outcomes in the home and mitigate harmful indoor environmental concerns utilizing Delos' proprietary wellness algorithms and sensor technologies to create spaces that help reduce stress, improve sleep quality, increase performance and enhance overall well-being. DARWIN intuitively responds to the conditions in the home, purifying air and water, and providing dynamic lighting that helps regulate the body's natural circadian rhythms. The platform is designed to enhance energy, sleep and overall well-being, while reducing indoor contaminants that negatively affect respiratory, cardiovascular, immune, and cognitive health.
"For more than eight years, Delos has fostered research collaborations with leading medical institutions, including a collaboration with Mayo Clinic on the Well Living Lab, the first human-centered research facility dedicated to researching the indoor environment's impact on human health," said Paul Scialla, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Delos. "Through our integration with Crestron, we are now able to automate more advanced features on DARWIN, such as control of lighting, shades, HVAC and audio, to increase energy and improve sleep and overall wellbeing for individuals inside the home."
The sophisticated sensor technology and intelligence of the DARWIN system, combined with the power and flexibility of a Crestron 3-Series Control System, enables dynamic control of the home environment to help maximize health, comfort, and well-being. By embedding the Delos DARWIN Android application directly into Crestron TSW touch screens, occupants can visualize the air quality in their home from room to room and provide precise control over the Delos experiences that trigger automatically throughout the course of the day.
DARWIN also provides critical information like air quality to Crestron to display on a TSW touch screen or mobile device. When DARWIN detects the air quality event, it communicates it to the Crestron Thermostat through visual and sound alerts to trigger fan speed remediation. This helps expedite air quality events in the home by moving air through the system
