Savant Expands Smart Home Ecosystem With Nest and iPort Partnerships
Savant, a provider of smart home technology, announced a further expansion of its partner program with the addition of Nest and iPort. They join Sonos, Sony, Lutron and PureLink in Savant’s growing list of partners. The intent of Savant’s partner program is to deliver innovative home automation experiences with best-in-class products and partners across the key pillars of home automation, including entertainment, lighting, climate and security. By selectively collaborating and integrating with a community of elite brands, Savant ensures a one-of-a-kind whole home automation experience.
“As a leader in premium home automation for over a decade, Savant has learned that our customers want to use the Savant platform to control products that share our values — great design and reliable performance backed by trusted brands that stand behind their products,” said William Lynch, CEO of Savant. “Our goal is to create a single user experience that’s unparalleled in the world of connected homes, and one way we do that is by integrating terrific products in innovative ways that our integrators and customers love. Today’s announcement with Nest and iPort is further evidence of our strategy to curate and integrate with great brands.”
With new elite partner Nest, Savant product lines are now certified as Works with Nest. Through a seamless integration with Nest Learning Thermostat, it’s easy for customers to ensure their home is always set to the ideal temperature. Homeowners will also be able to use Nest’s “Away” mode to activate a Savant Scene which can automatically turn everything off after they leave the house.
The company’s strategic partnership with Dana Innovations aims to develop a deeper integration across all brands starting with iPort. These integrations allow, for example, Savant Scenes and workflows to be activated using the buttons on the iPort Surface Mount with Buttons dock. In addition, Savant will be adding iPort products to the Store for Savant authorized integrators.
Savant’s existing partnerships with Sonos and PureLink are also expanding. Savant and Sonos have worked toward a common goal of delivering the best music experience in connected homes. In addition to being named by Sonos as one of a select few endorsed integration partners, Savant also recently announced an expanded Sonos integration as part of their newest software updates for the Savant and Savant Pro product lines.
The PureLink partnership features new 4K video switches created exclusively for Savant by PureLink — designed to meet the specifications most often requested by Savant integrators and making it easier for homeowners to enjoy the benefits of ultra-high-definition video.
