From single device control to Savant Scenes, users can enable the full power of the Savant control experience via Google voice commands
HYANNIS, MASS. —July 19th, 2018 — Savant, a leader in smart home technology, has announced seamless compatibility between Savant's smart home ecosystem and the Google Home Assistant speech-recognition engine. Savant pioneered the use of voice control as part of the connected home by introducing the Savant Pro Remote, enabling homeowners to activate a Savant Scene, choose a favorite channel or select a source within their entertainment system. Now with the unveiling of Google Home integration, this new functionality represents the next step in voice command and gives users enhanced interaction with their Savant home.
The new Savant/Google compatibility will give consumers the ultimate smart home experience. Users can activate Savant Scenes to control any and all of their smart home features quickly and easily, adjusting entertainment, lighting, climate controls, TVs, shading and much more with a single voice command. Setup is intuitive—users can create a Savant Scene, enable the Savant Action with the Google Assistant or Google Home App and link their account. Google will discover Savant as an Action that can be easily accessed via voice command. Interfacing with Savant's groundbreaking scene engine that captures personalized automation events, consumers can initiate, schedule, edit or delete a Savant Scene while retaining seamless Google voice functionality. Savant's Google interface is based upon cloud-to-cloud communication between the two services, leveraging the power of Savant's robust, secure, redundant cloud infrastructure.
"Our objective is to deliver the best smart home experience along with leading edge innovations that bring added value for our network of integrators and their clients," stated Savant CEO Robert Madonna. "Working with Google and bringing their voice technology to Savant homes accomplishes both without question."
Savant's Google Home support is available now.
