Savant Home Automation Works with Nest and iPort, Integrates Deeper with Sonos, PureLink – CEPro
Nest and iPort join Sonos, Sony, Lutron and PureLinkÂ as Savant Elite Partners. Savant says that its partner program was created to deliver innovative home automation experiences with best-in-class products and partners across the key pillars of home automation, including entertainment, lighting, climate and security.
â€œAs a leader in premium home automation for over a decade, Savant has learned that our customers want to use the Savant platform to control products that share our values â€” great design and reliable performance backed by trusted brands that stand behind their products,â€ says William Lynch, CEO of Savant.
â€œOur goal is to create a single user experience thatâ€™s unparalleled in the world of connected homes, and one way we do that is by selectively integrating terrific products in innovative ways that our integrators and customers love. Todayâ€™s announcement with Nest and iPort is further evidence of our strategy to curate and integrate with great brands.â€
Works with Nest
With new elite partner Nest, Savant product lines are now certified as Works with Nest. Through integration with Nest Thermostat, itâ€™s easy for customers to ensure their home is always set to the ideal temperature.
Homeowners will also be able to use Nestâ€™s â€˜Awayâ€™ mode to activate a Savant Scene which can automatically turn everything off after they leave the house.
â€œNestÂ andÂ SavantÂ bothÂ believe in offering productsÂ with exceptional design and personalizedÂ customerÂ experiences,â€Â saysÂ Gene LaNois, head of the professional channel at Nest. â€œWith thisÂ partnership,Â NestÂ andÂ Savant are able to offerÂ professional installersÂ even more solutionsÂ toÂ helpÂ growÂ theirÂ businessesÂ while giving theirÂ customersÂ beautiful connected productsÂ that helpÂ makeÂ theirÂ homesÂ safer,Â more comfortable, and secure.â€
The companyâ€™s strategic partnership with iPort aims to develop a deeper integration across all Dana Innovations brands, including Sonance and TRUFIG.
These integrations allow, for example, Savant Scenes and workflows to be activated using the buttons on the Surface Mount with Buttons dock. In addition, Savant will be adding iPort products to the Store for Savant Authorized Integrators.
â€œOurÂ focusÂ atÂ iPortÂ isÂ toÂ create productsÂ that enable the best user interface for your home,â€Â explainsÂ AriÂ Supran,Â CEO of Dana InnovationsÂ parent companyÂ of iPort, Sonance, and TRUFIG.Â â€œWhileÂ anÂ iPadÂ withÂ AppsÂ isÂ a great userÂ interface forÂ the home, we believe adding buttonsÂ inÂ yourÂ environmentÂ forÂ direct accessÂ to critical functionsÂ makesÂ that experience even better. WeÂ areÂ thrilledÂ toÂ beÂ partnering with Savant to do just that.â€
Sonos, PureLink Move Forward
Savantâ€™s existing partnerships with Sonos and PureLink are also expanding.
Savant and Sonos have worked toward a common goal of delivering the best music experience in connected homes.
In addition to being named by Sonos as one of a select few endorsed integration partners, Savant also recently announced an expanded Sonos integration as part of its newest software updates for the Savant and Savant Pro product lines.
With these updates, customers will be able to create and schedule scenes incorporating Sonos. Homeowners can play music through any of their Sonos speakers, use voice commands to cue up a playlist, and even combine music and lighting into a scene that can be scheduled to set the mood automatically at any moment.
â€œTogether with Savant, we are defining new and innovative connected home experiences that are making it even easier for customers to listen to their favorite music out loud in any room of their home,â€ says Andrew Vloyanetes, global business development manager at Sonos. â€œSavantâ€™s unique scene functionality gives music lovers new ways to easily incorporate their favorite music into everyday moments, helping them get even more out of their smart home experience.â€
The PureLink partnership features new 4K video switches created exclusively for Savant by PureLink â€” designed to meet the specifications most often requested Savant Integrators and making it easier for homeowners to enjoy the benefits of ultra-high definition video.
