        RMC4

        4-Series™ Control System

        Provides a compact 4-Series™ control system featuring the Crestron IFE micro form factor. Conveniently powered via PoE and fits almost anywhere to suit a variety of specialized applications.

        The Crestron® RMC4 provides a secure, high‑performance, cost-effective control processor and interface for controlling and monitoring for a single display device, a small AV system, lighting and shading, climate control, security, energy management, and many other specialized applications. A small form factor allows the RMC4 to be placed just about anywhere, with the option to attach it to a flat surface or DIN rail using the included mounting bracket. The RMC4 can fit easily behind a video display or above a projector, and provides enough control ports to control the display device along with a screen or lift.

        4-Series Control Engine
        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.

        Modular Programming Architecture
        The RMC4 is designed to run a single program out of the box. The optional modular programming architecture (MPA) add-on allows the RMC4 to run up to ten programs simultaneously.1 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.

        Onboard Control Ports
        Through a full complement of onboard control ports, the RMC4 can be integrated with a wide variety of audio, video, lighting, motorized shades, thermostats, door locks, sensors, security systems, and other equipment.

        • Ethernet provides an interface for connecting to the building network and controlling Crestron AV switchers, audio processors, power controllers, and other IP controllable equipment.
        • Cresnet® network connectivity provides support for Crestron lighting dimmers, motorized shades, sensors, thermostats, keypads, and more.2
        • Onboard RS‑232, IR, relay, and digital input control ports enable direct integration with all types of third‑party equipment.

        Expanded connectivity can be provided to the RMC4 via Crestron control port expansion modules, Ethernet to Cresnet bridges, wired Ethernet I/O extenders, or Wi-Fi® network I/O extenders (all sold separately).

        Crestron Fusion Room Monitoring and Scheduling
        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 RMC4 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. For more information about Crestron Fusion, visit www.crestron.com/fusion.

        Crestron XiO Cloud Provisioning and Management
        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. For more information, visit www.crestron.com/xiocloud.

        Enhanced Enterprise-Grade Security
        The RMC4 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 RMC4 is configured to meet Crestron's enhanced security standards right out of the box. The RMC4 ships with authentication enabled and requires that an administrator account be created before access is granted to device configuration and control interfaces.

        SNMP V3 Support
        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.

        BACnet Support
        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.3

        Apple HomeKit Integration
        The RMC4 supports integration with an Apple® HomeKit® technology system. Once the RMC4 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 RMC4 that makes it easy to pair the control system directly to the Apple Home app.4

        PoE Network Powered
        Using PoE technology, the RMC4 gets its operating power directly through the LAN wiring, eliminating the need for a local power supply or dedicated power wiring. A PoE injector (PWE‑4803RU) simply connects in line with the LAN cable at a convenient location. Crestron PoE switches (CEN‑SW‑POE-5 or CEN‑SWPOE‑16) may also be used to provide a total networking solution with built-in PoE. All PoE injectors and switches are sold separately.

        Integrator Friendly Enclosure
        The RMC4 features the Crestron IFE form factor, a compact Integrator Friendly Enclosure design that fits almost anywhere and enables a variety of installation options. Its shape allows multiple RMC4 and other IFE compliant devices to be stacked together. Using the included mounting bracket, it can be fastened to a flat surface or snapped onto a standard DIN rail. Rack mount and pole mount kits are also available (sold separately).

        1. Enabling Modular Programming Architecture (MPA) on the RMC4 requires the purchase of one SW‑RMC3‑10PROG license. The license enables support for running up to 10 simultaneous programs on a single RMC4. The license is not required if only one program is run on the RMC4. To obtain a license for theRMC4, complete the "Request for SW‑RMC3‑10PROG License” form. For questions, contact license@crestron.com.
        2. The NET (Cresnet) port on the RMC4 is a 3-pin connector which provides connectivity for Cresnet data only, not power. The Cresnet power conductor does not terminate to the RMC. An external Cresnet power supply is required to provide power for Cresnet devices.
        3. A BACnet and IP license is required. A free license is available to support up to 50 BACnet objects on a single 4‑Series control system. Enabling support for more than 50 BACnet objects requires the purchase of one SW‑3SERIES‑BACNET‑50+ license. The RMC4 supports a maximum of 500 BACnet objects when dedicated for BACnet use only. Actual capabilities are contingent upon the overall program size and complexity. To obtain the license, visit www.crestron.com/bacnetlicense.
        4. This feature is only available when using the TSR‑310. Other Crestron touch screens, handheld remotes, and keypads are not supported. For these interfaces, traditional IR or CEC control must be used to control supported Apple devices.
