Secured Device Port

The Secured Device Port is used to communicate with Crestron User Interface Devices. The default port is 50001. Change the Secured Device Port if the default port is in use by the ISP and cannot be forwarded.

NOTE: On User Interface Devices, the term Local Port is used in place of Secured Device Port.

To change the port:

  1. Enter a port number in the Secured Device Port field.
  2. Update the port on all Crestron User Interface Devices. For details, refer to User Interface Devices.

Legacy Device Port

The Legacy Device Port is used to communicate with Legacy Devices. The legacy devices are TSW-xx52 touch screens, CEN-TRACK AM/FM/XM devices, and Remote Trigger and Listen modules. The default setting for the Legacy Device Port is disabled in Crestron Home version 3.012.0125 and later.

When upgrading systems with Legacy Devices to Crestron Home version 3.012.0125 and later, the Legacy Device Port is automatically enabled. If Legacy Devices are not in the system when upgrading, the Legacy Device Port is automatically disabled.

To turn the Legacy Device Port on or off, select or deselect Legacy Device Port Enabled.

  • Claimed: The control processor has been acquired by a parent processor. Select Info to view the Parent Processor name, IP Address, and Serial Number.
