09 Mar Introducing Savant Home Automation
With Apple and Google developing hotly anticipated smart home systems, we are excited to see if they live up to the hype. Whilst Apple and Google promise home automation in the future, Savant have already succeeded in producing a highly sophisticated system and we have found ourselves recommending it time and again. So lets take a closer look at exactly what it is Savant can do.
It is a completely customizable home automation system with which you can control virtually all of the electronic devices in your home, from the palm of your hand using an app. The whole point of a home automation system is to make your life more convenient, energy efficient, time efficient, secure and not forgetting, fun! We think savant fulfills all of the above.
Savant can be controlled from both IOS and Android devices so if you can use your phone, you can use Savant. Providing a capable installer sets it up, it will slot right into your life without the headache of learning how to use complicated controls. You pay a one-off fee for a site license that gives you up to 50 synchronized interfaces. Translation? If you buy a new iPad all you have to do is download the app and hey presto! You can control your already programmed Savant system from your new device. And it is fast; when they say “at the touch of a button” they mean it, no waiting around for the software to load. Excellent for those of us who are a little impatient!
What does this mean in real terms? For starters it can assist with your morning routine, and goodness knows we can all do with a little help getting out of bed in the morning. Synced with your alarm, Savant will open the blinds to let the sunlight in, warm the house on chilly mornings and put on a pot of coffee simultaneously all before you’ve emerged from under your duvet. It will alert you if you’ve forgotten to lock the front door and then allow you to lock in from your phone wherever you may be. If you’re hosting a dinner party it will dim the lights and play a pre-selected Spotify playlist to ensure the atmosphere is just right. Savant can even monitor the energy output your home uses and reports back to you ways in which you can make your home more energy efficient and cut costs. These are just a few examples, the pattern of each individual’s life is different and we like the fact that Savant caters for everyone.
Now it’s probably time we got down to the nitty gritty of cost. Savant is by no stretch of the imagination the cheapest on the market. Cost is highly dependent on the size of your home, with installations starting at around £10,000. The question is, do we think it is a worthwhile investment? We give a resounding yes!
If you agree, give us a call to find out more. Tage London is a Savant Authorized Integrator, we don’t supply products that we don’t absolutely love and wouldn’t have in our own home.
Have a great week everyone!
