Savant Partners with First Texas Homes
Savant has formed a partnership with First Texas Homes, a large U.S. regional builder, to provide built-in home automation and control in all new production homes.
First Texas Homes will introduce smart home capabilities from Savant, including the ability to control lighting, climate, entertainment, and security as a standard offering in their new homes.
Savant sees the partnership as indicative of the future of the home building industry, with Mark Samuel, EVP of Savant noting, “Homeowners are increasingly looking to tailor their homes to the way they live and enjoy a seamless connected lifestyle. As leaders in standardizing smart home technology for their homebuyers, First Texas Homes is a great partner for Savant and we look forward to providing a personalized, fully integrated home experience.”
All First Texas Homes will include a Savant Smart Host, Pro Remote and Savant Metropolitan lighting, as well as integration with Ecobee thermostats, Linear garage door openers, Honeywell security systems, and cameras. Houses are pre-wired for enhanced networks and audio distribution, and homeowners will be able to choose from several upgrade options through First Texas Homes integrator partner, HomePro. These options also include the ability to integrate media rooms, finishing out the distributed audio, adding additional cameras, as well as new features in development.
