My wife and I just bought a resale home which we which to retrofit a HA system. My limited understanding is that Prodigy was Crestron's answer to Control4, however, it was limited in what it could do and so they released the PM3-XP which opened it up to the whole line of Crestron's world. Now that they've gone to mass distrobution it seems that most Crestron dealers are staying away from them.
Well, the local Crestron dealer is still using Prodigy and can still get me a PMC3-XP, though he is telling me to just go with an MC3. I know that the Prodigy comes with a remote, while the MC3 doesn't, and that the Prodigy equipment is a bit cheaper than Crestron. Other than that, is there any reason I should go with a full out Crestron MC3 instead of getting the XP? Is the programing involved in the MC3 more than that of the Prodigy? What about future video and audio distribution? Is the Crestron one that much more expensive than the Prodigy?
Basically, I'm trying to figure out if the XP will do the same as the MC3 and if using the Prodigy equipment will be worth my while.
What are the pros and cons of each?
Thanks in advance,
