Savant, a specialist in home automation and smart control solutions, have this week announced the release of their 8.7 software and hardware update. The release includes exciting advances in the company’s various product ranges, and comprises a number of new devices and features.
As part of the update, Savant have now launched a new Savant Pro 8 App on the iOS App Store that includes support for TrueImage. Savant TrueImage operates by utilising a virtual lighting concept and allows app users to experience virtual lights in any room on their mobile devices and to change dimming levels and RGB colours.
In the area of lighting and lighting control, Savant have also released a new line of coloured smart bulbs and LED light strips, which feature millions of colour and brightness choices to suit any mood. Those new products are designed to be controlled via TrueImage and are described by the company as being ‘far less costly than the colored [sic] lighting solutions currently available in the custom technology market’.
As part of the wide ranging update announcement, Savant also revealed that their award-winning Savant Pro Remote will also now be available with multi-zone control. That allows switching from room to room for true whole home control from a single remote, thanks to a direct connection with a home’s Wi-Fi.
Amongst the other notable products announced this week by Savant, are a new line of architectural speakers and a sophisticated aluminium stand designed for their Savant Touch 8 control screen. Further interesting new software features for Savant 8.7, too, include the ability to assign a user-defined scene to a button on a Savant Metropolitan keypad.
