FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TRANSFORMS THE CONTROL AND AUTOMATION MARKET WITH CLOUD-BASED MANAGEMENT
SOFTWARE AND IPAD®-BASED CONFIGURATION TOOL
New Savant Central Management and
Savant Studio App deliver secure, cloud-based project management along with
intuitive configuration of entry-level systems
June 28th, 2018 — Savant, a leader in smart home technology, has
announced today the addition of Savant Central Management and Savant Studio to
their software and services suite. These two powerful tools will enable
integration professionals to modernize their businesses, increase productivity
and provide valued services to their clients. Paired with Savant’s flagship
software tool RacePoint Blueprint and the award-winning Pro App, Savant
delivers the most scalable platform for configuration, service and end-user
features on the market today. Savant Central Management and Studio encompass some
of the most significant innovations since Savant was founded 13 years ago.
What is Savant
Savant Central Management is a cloud-based integrator
tool (accessed by mobile device, PC or Mac®) that delivers secure access to
every Savant deployment. This includes software revision tracking, remote
diagnostics, time/date stamped systems logs, host maintenance and configuration
At the core of Savant Central Management is the
capability to protect the integrator and their clients with permission-based
secure access. With Savant Central Management, integrators can create internal
access tiers – allowing limited access to a client’s home and data. In
addition, via the Savant Pro App, clients will be asked to consent to remote
system access by the integrator for as little as an hour or as long as the
project requires. All permissions are time and date stamped.
Savant Central Management also creates opportunities for
integrators that represent real value to their clients. Integrators will be
alerted to service opportunities and they can provide many critical tasks
remotely including software releases, firmware updates, access to revision
history, host logs and so much more.
“Just as our
Blueprint software revolutionized the methodology for custom system
configuration and deployment, Savant Central Management and Savant Studio
represent the next leap forward in cloud-based integration software” said
Robert Madonna, CEO of Savant. “Savant
installers now have access to a comprehensive suite of tools that provide new
levels of service to their clients and greater opportunity to expand their
What is Savant
Savant Studio is an elegant, intuitive iOS-based, field
configuration tool for entry level end-to-end system design and deployment.
Utilizing Savant’s new S2 Host at the core, Studio supports the full range of
features and services with Savant music, lighting, climate and more.
Now system configuration can be done via Savant Blueprint
software on a Mac or via Savant Studio on an iPad. With the introduction of
Savant Central Management, all project files, configurations and revision
management history are stored in the cloud. For the ultimate in deployment
flexibility, configurations created in Blueprint can be accessed via Savant
Studio and vice versa.
Savant Studio and Savant Central Management, the latest
additions to Savant’s software and services suite, represent a critical
opportunity for integrators to modernize their business practices including
addressing client security and privacy policies, creating scalable programming
and service teams, and developing auditing practices for field service,
employee access and system/software versions across all installations.
Savant Studio and Savant Central Management will be
available to all Savant integrators in Q3 2018, with beta deployments
nationwide going on now.
