Savant App

Savant has taken home automation one step farther, or maybe two or three. With the release of the Savant App in September of 2014, a level of unparalleled interaction with an automation system has been created. Before customers would call their installer, for example Lewis Audio Video, to set up their home automation and then anytime they needed to reprogram they would need to call the installer again. Customers will still call their installer, but this time the installation process would just be the original setup then the customer takes over the controls. What the app gives customers is a user friendly system that allows them to simply do it themselves. Time is money and the Savant App gives you your time back.

But what exactly does the app do?

The app has many features that allow for the customer to benefit from increased leisure and simplicity. As the seasons cycle customers can easily change the automatic blinds and lighting to compliment the amount of natural lighting. Another option that the app gives users is the ability to “capture” certain settings. Remember when the lighting and sound seemed just right for optimal movie watching? Well now you can “capture” those settings and save them for repeated use. So next time you can spend more time with your family and less tinkering with the lights. The Savant App also gives you remote access to your home when you’re away. Forget to turn the alarm on when you left for vacation? No problem, jump on your mobile device and fix the problem instantly. The best part about this app is it allows for integration of all your different electrical applications that can be easily accessed and programmed from your mobile device.
