Savant has announced the US release of its smart home skill for Amazon Alexa, allowing users to now control Savant systems via voice commands.

Following on from the release of Alexa skills from the likes of Control4, Crestron and URC, Savant has finally integrated voice control with its automation technology.

From single device control to Savant scenes, owners Savant systems in the US running da Vinci 8.4 or higher can now use voice commands to interact with technology in their home.

To benefit from the integration users create a Savant scene, enable the Savant skill in the Alexa app and then link their account. Following this Alexa discovers the smart home skill, which can they be accessed by voice command.

Users can then initiate, schedule, edit or delete a Savant scene whilst interacting with the Alexa assistant.

“Adding further voice control options with our Alexa skill allows us to deliver the best smart home user experience along with leading edge innovations that bring added value for our network of integrators,” commented Robert Madonna, CEO at Savant.
