The new Smart Host combines the functionality of a host and controller in a single unit, and can help automate a wide range of devices in up to twelve rooms. With incredible performance and a beautifully compact form factor, installation is simple—and its US MSRP of just $999 is the most affordable entry point yet to a Savant system.
"The all-new Smart Host allows our Authorized Integrators to offer Savant’s best-in-class premium automation software at an incredible value," said Savant CEO, William Lynch. "It makes installations faster, easier, and more affordable than ever—and starting this May it's going to be powering the next generation of Savant Homes."
Savant also announced the reinvented Metropolitan wireless lighting line, consisting of switches, dimmers, fan controllers, and keypads offering both dimming and volume control. Its elegant design is compatible with industry-standard faceplates and features a modern look perfectly suited for discriminating designers and homeowners. Metropolitan's adaptive design also enables the products to work automatically with almost any lighting set-up, which leads to a smoother installation experience.
Additionally, Savant announced new software features to its award-winning Savant App. Using powerful but easy-to-use new functionality, homeowners can now create their own system notifications—and get alerts on their IOS and Android devices while at home or away. "Our goal is to continue to develop ways that Savant homeowners can personalize our App to fit their needs, while arming our Integrators with the best automation system in the world to sell," said Lynch.
The new products are now available for pre-order through Savant's network of Authorized Integrators, and will begin shipping in May 2015. The Savant App is available on both iOS and Android platforms.
