4 Ways to Control a Savant Smart Home—Besides the Savant App
Savant Puts Lighting, AV, Security, & More in Your Hands
A smart home system like Savant offers unparalleled luxury and convenience. With Savant, your lighting, shading, security devices, speakers, TVs, and heating are all connected to one easy-to-use platform. With one tap of a button, you can prepare your entire house for the day.
Yet many people are hesitant to fully embrace smart home living because they don’t want to feel tethered to their phones. If you have the same concerns, we have good news. The Savant app is not the only way to manage your connected devices.
Read on to see four other ways you can control your Savant smart home in Toronto, ON.
Savant Pro Remote X2
This is not your standard TV remote. Savant’s X2 remote is sleek and modern, available in gray, rose gold, and jet black. The X2 connects to all your home’s devices, from smart locks to motorized shades and audio speakers.
The X2 lets you save customized screens to quickly access your favorite apps and devices. Maybe you want the Netflix button next to lighting, two of your most frequently used features. You’re free to make changes at any time to the remote’s settings. Plus, PIN protection prevents the kids from tampering with the ‘Dining Room’ setting, so the scene stays just how you like it.
Prefer a hands-free approach? Savant is compatible with popular voice assistants, including Amazon’s Alexa, Google Home, and Josh.ai. The Savant X2 remote also includes built-in voice assistance by Siri.
So, if you’re setting the table for company, say, “Alexa, turn on the Dinner scene,” and your lights instantly dim, a playlist starts playing, and the motorized drapes close. When your hands are full, or you’re in a hurry, voice is one of the most convenient ways to control a Savant home.
Savant Touch Screen
If you like the Savant app’s interface but would enjoy a more permanent control location, the Savant touch screen may be mounted to the wall or propped on a stand. Its high-resolution graphics beautifully display each room of the house. The presence sensor will awaken the screen as you approach it, so all you need to do is press ‘Skip’ on a song or turn off a room and be on your way.
Say goodbye to on/off light switches and hello to Savant’s Metro keypads. The eye-catching keypads let you not only turn lights on and off but also activate custom scenes that you’ll set through the app. So, you can press a button labeled “Relax” that sets your lights, shades, thermostat, and music to your favorite evening settings. An “Away” button by the door can power off the entire house instantly. The possibilities are all yours!
