MDU? It's not a fad...it is creating opportunities for consultants
There's a national trend toward living in multi-dwelling unit (MDU) residences. Every major city is seeing it, as well as smaller cities, suburbs and resort towns. Baby-boomers are giving up their single-family homes in favor of condominiums and townhouses. Others seek comfortable, technologically-advanced living spaces.
Only a few consultants have taken advantage of this large and growing market; however, the buying cycle is perfect for the consultant solution. Large corporations with professional managers typically make the purchasing decision. Architects are key influencers. The benefits that consultants offer - consistent, creative design, impartial judgment, thoughtful evaluation of bidders and the bid process, valuable system commissioning services - are very attractive to these clients.
Crestron is here to help you penetrate the MDU market, both with our strong product line and our professional support. If you haven't considered Crestron as a major part of your MDU solution, maybe it's time you did.
Homeowners and building owners are looking for great television, multi-room audio, automated lighting and sophisticated control of climate, drapery and security systems.
It's important to note that not every homeowner wants a whole-home system. In a large building, you'll have individuals who want great audio but nothing more. Others will be more concerned with security, climate control and lighting. Some will have heard of amenities solutions and ask if you can provide them. People think of MDU in terms of luxury developments; however, a lower-cost building can benefit from these systems and your services. Crestron MDU can make a hum-drum development into something really special, greatly enhancing its marketability and profitability.
No matter what the development, CAT5 implementation will be very important, because the dwelling units are often wired before they are sold, and before a homeowner can decide where he may want televisions, speakers and control panels. QuickMedia(tm) is Crestron's CAT5 cabling solution for wiring individual dwelling units or a whole complex.
In a full-blown system, you'll need to provide flexible controls. The homeowner does not want to give guests access to the security system; however, everyone needs to operate local lights, media, temperature and draperies.
Other types of developments - retirement communities, hotels, resorts and even hospitals - may benefit from systems based on the MDU concept. The opportunity is immense!
If you're designing for the MDU market, you need to offer a wide variety of solutions, from inexpensive entry-level systems to whole-home automation. The flexibility you gain from using Crestron's comprehensive product line will give a significant competitive advantage over designers who don't.
Read Crestron's MDU brochure (PDF - 2.2M) for an overall look at Crestron's approach to this market. You can use any Crestron product in your MDU designs; however, these systems are of particular interest in the MDU context:
