As always, there were tons of new products to enjoy at CEDIA 2017 earlier this month. It gave us a chance to take a look at some of the latest smart home control products hitting the market. No company stood out to us more than Savant which had three CEDIA Best New Product finalists. From shading to video distribution, there was something for everyone. Keep reading to check out the latest Savant releases and come back to our blog next month when we’ll showcase the top audio and video products from CEDIA.
Savant Shading was one of CEDIA’s top products finalists and for a good reason. With their new line, you can get a hardwired motorized shades solution custom designed for your space. The shades are installed in stages, leading to a more thorough and efficient installation. The biggest innovation is in their brackets, which allow for additional corners, coupling and more. What does that mean for your Houston home? You can get a sleek, custom fit for all types of applications. And since all shades are hard-wired, you get increased reliability from your system.
You can learn more about Savant's line of shades and how they can impact your interior decor in our latest blog.
You can also integrate a variety of home security features into Savant's brand new door stations. These high-end, customizable stations can include the technology that matters most to you and integrates directly with your Savant Pro app. You can add video, two-way communication, unlock the door, open the gate, and more through these stations.
While color changing bulbs aren’t new to the lighting control industry, Savant Systems is bringing a unique approach. That is because of Savant's True Image. This is another CEDIA top finalist that makes it easier than ever to create lighting scenes for your home. Once you take a photo of the room, upload it to your Savant Pro app. True Image will then process the photo to gauge the color and intensity of each light and save it into a scene. Instead of having to set each fixture individually, it’s all done automatically. The new colored fixtures are available for indoor and outdoor use.
Savant’s new approach for AV over IP was another CEDIA finalist. AV over IP is the method used to stream high-quality audio and video throughout your space. With Savant’s brand new IP50 device, you can stream video and music to up to four different zones. AV over IP means better streaming quality and less wire clutter.
How can you use AV over IP in your home? Tap into Savant Music on your app to stream your favorite services to wireless speakers throughout your house. Stream 4K video from Netflix, Hulu or Amazon to multiple TVs simultaneously. As part of the installation, we'll strengthen your network with fiber optic cables to increase your bandwidth capabilities, so you never have to deal with lagging signals.
Savant’s trademark thermostat got a revamp at CEDIA 2017 with a sleek black casing and bright display that makes it easy for you to manage your home’s temperature. With simple swipes on the touchscreen, you can check the weather conditions, access your favorite scenes, turn fans on and off, and adjust the temperature.
Another upgrade to your control options is the Savant Touch. This elegant touchpad provides an ideal option for your space. One of the latest upgrades to the Savant Touch is the ability to use it in a portrait or landscape mount. You can expand your home's stylistic options while letting your family choose the layout that makes the most sense.
