Using these devices, homeowners can also control outdoor areas or even onboard a boat.
The company’s solutions include control of multi room audio and video, lighting control systems, climate control, security systems, telephony, window shades, and more.
Every aspect of a home environment can be managed and controlled remotely, and the company claims it can be delivered with a new level of efficiency as Savant provides a digital nervous system for the connected home with the reliability of the Mac OSX operating system.
Savant was the first company to introduce native iPad, iPhone and iPod touch applications for managing home automation control. It also pioneered TrueCommand, a dynamic On-Screen Display (OSD) technology that transforms any HD display in the home or office into a ‘control portal’ with user interaction previously available only with touch panels.
The product range will be distributed in Australia and New Zealand by Emersive Technologies. MD, Graeme Fraser, said: “The great Aussie home is still the big dream, and while home automation has been available for many years now, realistically, existing systems are too complicated for the average household to use.”
Fraser continued: “As technology becomes more central to our home life, more devices and content need synching together to extract their full benefit. Savant’s solutions combine sophisticated control technology with the intuitive Apple interface of iPad, iPhone and iPod touch to ensure home automation becomes a reality for more people.”
Emersive Technologies will distribute Savant’s full product range, which includes SmartSystems: Intelligent Control, Automation and Audio/Video distribution devices; TrueControl and TrueControl II: Savant’s family of iPhone, iPod touch or iPad apps available for download on the Apple App Store; TrueCommand: On-Screen Display (OSD), Savant’s groundbreaking on-TV menu system for complete control and automation of all smart home products; andTrueImage Control, which provides fingertip control via a simple tap on a wide-angle image of each room in the home.
