Crestron doesn't require 'home runned lighting loads," but it is an option. Standard wired dimmers are just fine too.
The home runned loads let all lighting be controlled by single gang keypads, reducing wall clutter. You can avoid the multiple gangs of switches at the entrance to the kitchen, or at the front door. The multiple gangs of switches are replaced by a single gang keypad.
Fully customizable touchscreens are also sacrificed, with C4. You can't pick colors, design, and layout.
Again, the quality and experience of the installer should play a significant role in your decision.
