"We are glad to be part of the HomeSource experience & we are excited for people to be able to come in and play with a Savant system, to see and feel for themselves the benefit of an automated home. Everyone knows how to use an iPad, and now with a simple app you can use your phone or tablet to control your lighting, shades, monitor your utilities, and even secure your home."

Home automation counts toward green home certification, making it both a practical and eco-logical value. HomeSource Design Center prides itself with offering local and regional products.
