Savant® Unveils Enhancements to Award-winning iPad®-based Quick Configuration/Design Tool
HYANNIS, MASS. February 21st, 2019— Savant, a leader in smart home technology, has announced significant updates to Studio, the company’s award-winning iPad-based quick configuration tool for integrators. The accessibility and portability of a tablet-based solution such as Savant Studio increases productivity by enabling junior techs to manage S2 host-based system configuration, freeing senior technicians to address more complex assignments in the field.
What’s New in Studio
For the Savant S2 host platform, Studio now features a Smart Behaviors Editor, enabling integrators to create customized workflows that improve configuration efficiency. Examples include the capability to automatically raise/lower a motorized lift when a TV is powered on/off, or creating an audible and/or visual alert when the doorbell has been pressed. Working in conjunction with Savant’s cloud-based central management portal (SCM), user preferences such as Savant Scenes, customized Savant Pro App photos and other Studio configuration parameters can all be stored in the cloud for fast, easy access.
Savant Studio also supports an exciting new feature enabling the S2 host to create a secure, wireless connection to the Savant Pro Remote and other wireless devices without requiring access to the client’s Wi-Fi network—a feature often requested by Savant integrators.
“Long considered the premium automation and control solution for the luxury residential market, Savant is now more accessible than ever before to a broader range of smart home consumers through the introduction of our S2 host and Savant Studio,” explained CEO Robert Madonna. “We believe that Studio is as significant an integration tool as Savant’s introduction of Blueprint™ over a decade ago.”
The new version of Savant Studio adds more 3rd party device integrations, including door locks, IP control of Samsung displays that require an encrypted registration process, and more.
The new Alert Center provides a useful checklist of items needed to complete the Savant configuration, making the installation process more efficient. The Alert Center notifies integrators of items required to complete the system, such as entering IDs for devices or connections that may prevent an audio or video path from functioning correctly.
A Modern Approach to Custom Integration
Savant Studio, working in conjunction with Savant Central Management represents a critical opportunity for a broad range of technology integrators to modernize their business practices by efficiently creating scalable programming while developing auditing practices for field service, employee access and system/software versions across all installations
New Savant Studio features are available now.
