Curious as to what everyone is using to control a security system with Crestron or even C4.

We were told by Crestron that the best system is the GE NX-8E but last week found out that their are specific requirements as per the processor and now that we know this it isn't as big of deal but would still like to know what others are using in the field.

I have a couple dozen systems with this combination going back several years with very acceptable results.

Seem to be a lot of dealers saying GE Concord has the best integration with C4.
If it's not simple, it's not sufficiently advanced.

GE Concord 4. Absolutely never had an integration issue with both c4 and Crestron. Have Crestron systems with older Concord panels that have been rocking for nearly 10 years now

We've integrated the DSC PowerSeries line into Crestron systems including in my house, our office, my boss's, and a bunch of clients also. Never had a problem as long as you have the right module.

The new Honeywell 128bpe panel works really good with Crestron using rs232. If you prefer ip, the Elk M1 gold is a nice panel also. I have used the honeywell and GE nx8 panels with prodigy and 2 series processors with no problems.

I have to respectfully disagree with the Honeywell recommendation. I have recently integrated 2 of those systems with Crestron and the results were less than desirable. There was a significant lag with communication and it is just clunky overall.

Another vote for the GE panels.

Slow? Thats being nice when referring to Honeywell/Ademco. I limit the rs232 strings in Compass Downloader software for the 128bpe to only the data needed with the integration. It speeds up the communications alot. If you select everything it effects the performance greatly.

Having recently researched this topic in the yahoo group, I can say that HAI appears to be the favorite there. The module created by Tony Golden, iirc.

(I read that Yahoo stopped developing anything after they set up yahoo groups, in 1994.)

Hai is good, it's just a processor hog. I usually use a Qm-rmc to handle my hai program when integrating the omni pro II into my system.
