        Discontinued

        This product has been discontinued. Please contact Crestron True Blue Support at 1-888-CRESTRON for a replacement solution or more information.

        Provides a POTS telephone interface to enable speakerphone and paging capabilities. Also enables Caller ID and DTMF control, and provides an audio signal generator using WAV files for custom doorbell, phone ringer, and other applications.

        The CEN-TIA provides a telephone audio and DTMF control interface with audio signal generation capabilities and other useful features for home automation, multiroom audio distribution, and other control system applications.

        Speakerphone

        The CEN-TIA connects directly to a POTS phone line, or to your phone system’s analog extension port, to provide a single-line, half-duplex, push-to-talk speakerphone interface for legacy Crestron® touch screens with built-in microphones, speakers, and analog audio I/O connections. Integrated with the C2N-IADS30X24 Intercom Distribution Switcher, the CEN-TIA can enable speakerphone capabilities for multiple touch screens throughout the house.

        Caller ID

        See who's calling before you answer by displaying Caller ID information on every touch screen. Manage missed calls easily with complete caller information and management options displayed on the touch screen.

        Telephone Paging

        The CEN-TIA adds telephone paging capability to any Crestron Home® (CH) audio distribution system, allowing sophisticated zone-paging from any telephone to room speakers throughout the house.

        Audio Signal Generator

        Loaded with your own custom MP3 audio files, the CEN-TIA can be used to generate high-quality door chimes and alarm sounds, and even create unique telephone ring tones to identify known callers based on Caller ID. With memory capacity expandable up to 1 GB, the CEN-TIA can easily support several hours of full-frequency stereo audio files.

        DTMF Control Interface

        Use your mobile phone to remotely turn on lights, adjust air conditioning, and arm/disarm security. Using standard DTMF touch tones, the CEN-TIA affords telephone keypad control of any automation system function, providing a prompt-driven user-interface that's simple to use. The Menu Builder software tool makes it easy to set up a menu of friendly voice commands using the preloaded voice prompts, or your own custom audio files, for personalized remote control of your home or office. The CEN-TIA can also dial out to your mobile phone to alert you to an alarm condition or other system event.
