Savant has introduced the Smart Home App for Apple TV, an on-screen control platform that provides access to smart home functionality via a TV — including using graphics full screen or as an overlay to live TV or a movie that’s currently playing.
Savant’s Smart Home App for Apple TV provides control for climate, lighting, audio, Savant Scenes and more. This on-screen experience is part of the company’s Pro App software that provides an interface with smart home functionality via touch panels, mobile devices, the Savant Pro Remote — and now the TV. Users can easily select their favorite channels, choose to control or view the status of a service in the home or to activate a Savant Scene.
With The Smart Home App for Apple TV, Savant can not only provide access to quick control options, but also provide the user with “live” features such as door station or security camera views, TrueImage control of lighting including applying favorite colors to USAI Lighting Fixtures, Savant DMX Light Strips and Smart Bulbs, along with a view into energy usage history and current generation statistics. Integrators will appreciate the ease of implementation, managed through the Savant IP Video feature set or as a stand-alone “direct mode” option with a dedicated Apple TV.
The Savant Smart Home App for Apple TV will become available late 2019. You can learn more about it here or in this short video:
