Savant Announces Partnerships with Nest and iPort
Savant has further expanded of its partner program with the addition of Nest and iPort. They join Sonos, Sony, Lutron, and PureLink in Savant’s growing list of Elite Partners.
With new elite partner Nest, Savant product lines are now certified as Works with Nest. Through a seamless integration with Nest Learning Thermostat, homeowners will be able to use Nest’s ‘Away’ mode to activate a Savant Scene which can automatically turn everything off after they leave the house.
The company’s strategic partnership with Dana Innovations aims to develop a deeper integration across all brands starting with iPort. These integrations allow, for example, Savant Scenes and workflows to be activated using the buttons on the iPort Surface Mount with Buttons dock. In addition, Savant will be adding iPort products to the Store for Savant Authorized Integrators.
Savant’s existing partnerships with Sonos and PureLink are also expanding. Savant has expanded Sonos integration as part of their newest software updates for the Savant and Savant Pro product lines. With these updates, customers will be able to create and schedule scenes incorporating Sonos. Homeowners can play music through any of their Sonos speakers, use voice commands to cue up a playlist, and even combine music and lighting into a scene that can be scheduled to set the mood automatically at any moment.
The PureLink partnership features new 4K video switches created exclusively for Savant by PureLink — designed to meet the specifications most often requested by Savant Integrators and making it easier for homeowners to enjoy the benefits of ultra high definition video.
