This year at CEDIA the buzz was on Savant® and their new app (iPad, iPhone, Android) coming out November 18. After a major investment, the company rethought its entire look and feel. Resulting in a complete new approach which is EVENT BASED. We think it is a REVOLUTION making everything simpler, more pleasant and even more user-friendly. Further more, with this new app, the user will easily be able to adjust his/her own system. We tried and adopted it.
Since its launch, last April, we started pre-programming rooms and clients control everything with their iPhone or iPad ; television, music, temperature, lighting and motorized shades. We are thrilled with the results and highly recommend this smart house equipment because the app is simple and intuitive, reliable, and very reasonably priced in its category.
For example, imagine starting a movie, dimming the lights and closing the shades in your home theatre, while your spouse is turning on music in the kitchen; both of you controlling everything with your respective iPhones. The possibilities are endless. Don’t hesitate to call us for more details. 514.484.4416
