just when you thought you’d heard it all from Savant over the last couple of weeks, the company has now announced a brand new Thermostat to their ever-expanding list of HomeKit Compatible products. You can read the press release below;
Savant has introduced the Savant SmartStat, an Apple HomeKit compatible smart thermostat. This advanced Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled thermostat has been engineered to work as a standalone solution without the need for a centralized smart home ecosystem, utilizing an intuitive app for easy setup and operation. The Savant SmartStat features a high-resolution colour glass touch screen nestled into an attractive form factor to seamlessly blend with any décor. Pricing and availability of the Savant SmartStat coming soon.
The SmartStat can be effortlessly installed and configured out of the box using Savant’s standalone Climate app. The SmartStat features a sleek touch screen allowing users to access preset climate “scenes” such as vacation, winter, or summer modes as well as access to view local weather conditions and forecast data based on zip code. SmartStat is so easy to operate with single set points for room temperature. Users can create multiple schedules based on time of day, day of the week or day of the year to suit lifestyle preferences as seasons change. They can also effortlessly control the SmartStat either locally or remotely using the intuitive Savant Climate app or the Apple Home app.
The Savant SmartStat is compatible with both standard and heat pump-based HVAC systems and can be locally connected to both 10K and 1-wire bus sensors. It is configurable for either Fahrenheit or Celsius and can be connected to a wide variety of indoor and outdoor temperature, slab and humidity sensors.
With Apple HomeKit compatibility, users will be able to control Savant’s SmartStat with the Apple Home app and through Siri on an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or HomePod to easily trigger a scene, manage climate scheduling or raise/lower temperature by simply saying “Hey Siri, make it warmer/colder”. In addition to the Savant SmartStat, Apple Home app users will have the ability to set up and control a large array of HomeKit compatible devices from over 100 brands and growing as part of a more sophisticated smart home experience.
The SmartStat is available in both black and white and is fully upgradable to work with a Savant Pro system as part of a larger home automation environment.
Savant’s entire lighting lineup is also HomeKit capable including Savant Smart Bulbs, DMX LED Light Strips, centralized Breaker Companion Modules, DMX and 0-10V light fixtures and any third party fixture connected to Savant’s DMX or 0-10V controllers. Savant lighting products deliver human-centric lighting with tunable white and WRGB full-colour spectrum dimming coupled with multiple keypad styles and button configurations to suit any imaginable application. Apple HomeKit integration is easy; simply connect to any of Savant’s HomeKit-compatible lighting solutions via Savant’s standalone Lighting TrueImage app and once on-boarded, they can also be controlled using Siri on an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or HomePod.
