SAVANT Acquires LiteTouch

savant-litetouch-0212Savant Systems, known for its Apple-based HomeAV and ProAV control systems, has acquired LiteTouch, Inc. of Salt Lake City, Utah, a manufacturer of residential and commercial lighting control systems.

Savant, already considered a major player in HomeAV control, along with AMX, Crestron and Control4, will now have to be respected in ProAV control too – a market currently dominated by Crestron, Extron and AMX.

Savant CEO Robert Madonna said of the acquisition, “LiteTouch brings to Savant a comprehensive lighting control system including a broad range of aesthetically pleasing keypad solutions from a respected and recognized supplier and our sales channel has been asking for a lineup of lighting control and integrated keypad products from Savant that operate in concert with Apple iOS devices to manage and control a vast array of connected home and commercial technologies.”

Well, Mr Madonna, congrats, you just did that!
