SmartEnergy Monitor: Savants SmartEnergy technology, which will be operational and on display within the NextGen home, measures both energy usage and production in real-time while delivering historical usage data from multiple energy management devices. SmartEnergy Monitor empowers homeowners with critical information and the capacity to improve overall efficiency while maintaining their preferred lifestyle. Once installed, users can monitor every aspect of electricity usage, from appliances to heating and lighting. Energy usage and/or production data can be viewed from home or remotely using an iPad.
Savant Select: From simple source control to complete two-way whole-home automation, the Savant Select seamlessly merges the familiar functionality of Apples latest iPod touch with easy-to-use push buttons, creating a sleek yet powerful home control interface. Supporting Savants TrueControl iPod touch App and TrueCommand On-TV navigation, this powerful smart remote delivers the perfect balance of backlit pushbuttons and a 3.5-inch color touch screen.
TrueCommand On-TV control: Savants TrueCommand technology provides the most advanced and visually engaging way to navigate, browse, and select diverse services and multimedia content by boldly presenting attractive icons on any high definition TV. TrueCommand enables complete control of all home systems without the need to interrupt your audio or video programming. While watching your favorite movie, use a Savant home control remote to easily adjust the temperature, dim the lights, check security cameras, obtain weather updates and more.
TrueImage Control: Savants TrueImage Control technology provides an innovative interface that allows you to touch actual images of Smart Home products to initiate commands. Simply touch the image of the actual light in the room you wish to control, and not only does the light in the room turn on/off or dim when pressed and held, but it also illuminates on the iPad confirming the command.
Savant Sound: Complimenting the SmartMedia multi-room A/V control system, Savants impressive array of architectural loudspeakers and 16-channel digital amplifier will be utilized to fill the NextGen home with great sound throughout three independent zones. Full control of the distributed audio system will be demonstrated on the iPad and Savant Select remote.
