Crestron and Evoko Room Management System Side-by-Side Comparison
After reviewing, installing and providing technical support for both of these touch screen room management systems we decided to introduce a review covering the most commonly compared features for the Evoko ERM1001 and the Crestron TPMC-4SM. While both are incredible touch screen room scheduler's there are some key differences in features and abilities. The most important thing to consider first if cost.
While the Evoko ERM1001 is more expensive than the Creston TPMC-4SM, the Creston TPMC-4SM requires a Crestron Fusion server which costs $5000 and requires custom crestron programming.
With that being said the Evoko will almost always be the cheaper option for small business's. The next most important feature is Crestron can do almost anything with it's control system and the Evoko ERM1001 is purpose built for room scheduling. The Crestron TPMC-4SM can control the room lighting, audio visual equipment even HVAC is so desired. So in feature sense it really depends on exactly the requirements of your project scope.
Below is a simple side by side comparison to help anyone considering the differences of these two products.
