Savant gives Partners in Excellence Programme a refresh
Savant has enhanced it Partners in Excellence Programme to provide integrators and their clients with a comprehensive selection of connected devices to create a seamless smart home ecosystem.
Savant’s Partners in Excellence Programme now features three tiers of participating manufacturers: Savant Recommended, Savant Certified, and Savant Supported.
Having already built a library of over 10,000 profiles for more than 10 years, Savant is continuing to add new high-value profiles every day, and this will be classified as Savant Supported partners.
To ensure a thorough and efficient quality control process, Certified partners will receive a test kit from Savant to allow the participating manufacturer to test all aspects of Savant-built drivers to ensure flawless integration between its products and the Savant smart home platform.
Finally, the Recommended partners tier represents the ‘best-in-class’ solutions from each category. Driver testing will be performed by both Savant’s engineering team and the participating partner to ensure complete performance.
The unique ‘Recommended’ partnership allows integrators to purchase the manufacturers’ products from the Savant store. Existing partners that have already be QC tested will also be listed in this category as the new programme commences.
Joining existing partners such as Apple, Harman, Netgear, USAI Lighting, and many others will include IC Realtime, Yale Lock, DISH and many more soon to be announced as coming on board with the newly enhanced programme.
“As the control and automation landscape has continued to evolve, integration with third party devices has increased in magnitude and complexity with the onslaught of new entrants in the mainstream IoT market,” said George Katsiris, vice president, Product Evangelist at Savant.
“Part of the emphasis with our Partners in Excellence Programme is to direct integrators toward the highest quality solutions. Our objective is to select and highlight the best industry partners that are committed to providing end-users with the most reliable smart home experience.”
