Savant Intros Home Entry Product Line

Savant has introduced a suite of what the company is calling “Savant Entry” that allows homeowners to see and communicate with anyone who approaches an entry point such as the front door, side door, garage, gate, etc., all accessible from within a single app. The Entry solution has been introduced as part of Savant’s 8.9 software and hardware release.

Savant’s Entry solution enables homeowners to receive notifications within the Savant Pro App’s secure encrypted cloud connection, allowing them to respond and unlock the door or gate. Homeowners can also communicate via video intercom with anyone who approaches an entry point or simply monitor the status of an entry point, even without anyone ringing the bell. Savant’s entry solutions are designed to work both from inside the home or remotely all from within the Savant Pro 8 App for iOS and Android devices. In addition, the Savant Entry solution includes an array of premium features not found on other systems such as high-powered night vision capability, advanced motion detection with available notifications, and up to three months of video storage (data can be saved if needed) for events at the door.

The Savant Pro App Entry service is designed so integrators can also deliver a tailored user experience, including customizable buttons that can be assigned to any function within the Savant system such as door lock/unlock, lights on/off, alarm trigger, instant access to Savant Scenes and much more.

Savant partnered with 2N to develop a unique entry point experience to work within the Savant ecosystem. Entry hardware options includes a small single-station solution with a doorbell and video camera or a larger interface with a keypad. Also available is a heavy duty unit with an integrated keypad for applications such as remote gate entry that require extra durability. Pre-installation back-boxes are available for both surface and flush mounting options.
