InnerSpace Electronics Hosts NYC Architects, Interior Designers, and Builders for Exclusive First-Look at Savant's New Smart Home App

Leading New York custom electronics integrator introduces area architects, designers and builders to powerful new home automation app, alongside accredited technology training.

Westchester and Fairfield County, NY - November 12, 2014 - InnerSpace Electronics, Inc., New York's leading resource for premium home technology solutions, announced today the details surrounding their elite home automation event. Taking place on Thursday, November 13th from 5:00 - 8:30pm, at the renowned NYC Savant Experience Center, InnerSpace will provide attendees with a special first-look at the recently launched Savant App for iOS and Android devices. The event marks the first time that the Savant App will be showcased in its entirety to the NY metro market.


"Technology changes happen so quickly in the "smart home" home automation industry that it has become critical that we keep our customers, local architects, builders and designers clued into the evolving marketplace and available technology solutions," said InnerSpace Electronics co-founder and vice president, Andrea Reiner. "The Savant App is truly groundbreaking in regards to the end-user experience it delivers and how it empowers today's Custom Integrators pros and complimentary trades to offer more. We are thrilled that we have the chance to participate in this exclusive showcase."

With the new app, consumers themselves can create and edit schedules and scenes - anything from setting a gentle 'Good Morning' scene to creating the perfect date night atmosphere - the tool allows the homeowner to get creative with their lighting, shading, playlists, theater, streaming content and more. For the professional integrator the app provides a platform in which they can better educate the end-user about the possibilities afforded by the smart home, while continuing to position themselves as the system design specialist and 'intelligence' that makes the technology work. For architects, builders and designers, the new tool delivers a real opportunity to design and spec in a home automation solution that not only blends seamlessly with the space's aesthetics, but also offers true elegance and simplicity.

"We are eager to present the new Savant App to some of the area's greatest architects and designers," said Don Sehulster, General Manager of Sales and Systems for Savant's NYC Experience Center. "Collaborating on this event with InnerSpace enables us to keep home trade professionals abreast of the ever-evolving smart home landscape so they can continue to offer best in class solutions to today's modern consumer."

Alongside demos of the Savant App, InnerSpace will offer two sessions - scheduled at 5:30pm and 6:45pm - of the approved training course, "From Vision to Reality; Where Technology Meets Design"; granting attendees one AIA or ASID CEU under the Health Safety & Wellness category. This unique course outlines the challenges that designers and architects face daily with an increasing amount of technology compromising their design vision. The course will provide insight into the many ways technology applications can be "photoshopped" out of real life to retain the aesthetic integrity of the space. Upon completion of this course attendees will be able to identify the challenges of multiple technologies and the aesthetic inconsistencies across different devices and brands while understanding the principles of audio and HVAC placement for best functionality with minimal intrusion.

Demos and training will be held together with cocktails at the NYC Savant Experience Center, located at 561 Broadway, New York, NY. Those with questions or interested in attending are asked to contact Gina Romanello, Sales and Marketing Manager for Innerspace Electronics by email at gina@ieiny.com; or by phone at 914-937-9700.
