One reason we love working with our premier control system partners, Savant, is their constant innovation. Every year they release new technology to improve their existing solutions and accommodate the latest smart home trends. As Savant dealers, it's our job to keep you up to date with their most recent innovations and help you upgrade your Savant home system.
The newest releases this year include lighting fixtures that enhance your wellbeing, a whole new way to watch video, and a smarter way to manage energy in your Chicago, IL home. Here we highlight each of these new features and offer additional information on how each will affect your day-to-day lifestyle.
In the past few years, no company has made more headway in lighting control than Savant Systems. For one, they’ve evolved to offer extensive lighting control platforms through keypads, switches, dimmers, apps, voice control and dedicated touchpads. Savant provides a particularly seamless control experience in their Savant app through TrueImage technology.
With TrueImage, all you have to do is snap a picture of the room. Then, touch the lights in the room from within the app and select the color you want. As you find the perfect settings, save them as scenes you can pull up in the future at the press of a button.
This year, Savant also partnered with USAI Lighting to incorporate their tunable white lighting fixtures. These fixtures mimic the brightness and color temperature of sunlight. Next, Savant added the necessary algorithms to deliver the precise hues needed to recreate sunlight according to the time of day and your home’s given geography.
Circadian lighting is vital since human chemistry works on a 24-hour day/night cycle. By accessing natural lighting even when you’re indoors, you can align your internal clock to improve your sleep cycles, reduce your stress levels, and improve your cognitive functions.
Do you want an easier way to watch multiple content sources on a single video display? New video tiling technology from Savant lets you add as many as nine sources to the same screen. Design your display settings easily through the Savant app. You can add tiles, alter their size, and move them around.
Drag the sources you want to use into a replica of the screen found within the app. Choose from satellite, cable, Blu-ray players, or streaming. Do you want to see who's at the front door? Show your surveillance footage in one of the tiles. Instantly see who’s at the front door without having to look away from the Bears game.
Energy management is vital in protecting your Savant home system from surges and outages that could severely damage your equipment. Savant works with Racepoint Energy to create dynamic solutions to manage your energy use better, ensure you're only using clean energy, and prepare you in case of outages.
Optimize your energy usage by storing it during peak hours then using it when it’s needed most. Have automated weather responses that prepare you for outages proactively whenever there are inclement weather forecasts. Consumption data is readily available in real-time for homeowners to review within the Savant app and adjust as needed.
