Savant has announced today the release of the Savant smart home skill for Amazon Alexa. Savant was one of the first to use voice control as part of the connected home by introducing the Savant Pro Remote, enabling homeowners to activate a Savant Scene, choose a favorite channel or select a source within their entertainment system. Now they’ve added Alexa integration.
Savant says that setup is intuitive — the user can create a Savant Scene, enable the Savant Skill in the Alexa app, and link their account. and Alexa will discover it as a new Amazon Smart Home Skill that can be easily accessed via voice command. Interfacing with Savant’s scene engine that captures personalized automation events, consumers can initiate, schedule, edit or delete a Savant Scene while retaining seamless Alexa functionality. Savant’s Amazon Alexa interface is based upon cloud-to-cloud communication between the two services.
