Savant Systems has launched an all-new control system called the Smart Series that lists for $1,599. The hub is something called the Smart Host remote and controller and, according to Savant, it has the capability to control a home theater, music, security, thermostat, lights, energy management, automated shades and more, all from a single app. On its own, it lists for $799.
The Savant Smart Host is the brain of the Savant system, providing high-level automation and control functions, user interface interpretations, system administration and monitoring. User interface (UI) software residing on the host communicates with Savant’s entire line of UIs, including remotes, keypads and mobile devices to on-screen displays using applications such as TrueControl. This communication provides advanced two-way control of components and services commonly found in automation and control environments.
