Control Systems

Home control systems are meant to offer convenience and make life at home more enjoyable.

Imagine setting your home to “wake up” at 6:00 am – the heat turns up, lights and even music come on around the house and the alarm system disables – or pushing a “vacation” button on your way out of the house (or from the road), which arms the security system, places certain lights on a timer and sets the temperature to save energy. A control system can do this and can be used for simpler tasks like putting the lights on a night setting and closing blinds, firing up the home theater system or watching live surveillance footage from the office or a smart phone.

A control system offers homeowners a single interface where all of the different electronic systems and appliances in a home can be controlled, and it should be intuitive and easy to use. Whether it controls just one system or a house full of technology, it should be easy to expand later.

Savant Systems’ Apple®-based control systems are all of the above, which is why Savant is ACT’s control system of choice. Savant’s systems are cost effective, simple to use, easy to expand and very reliable. They can be controlled by Apple devices (iPad®, iPad mini®, iPhone®, iPod touch®, Mac® computers) or Savant’s own line of remotes and keypads. Savant control systems can also be operated remotely from anywhere in the world with Internet access, which provides peace of mind for travelers and second home owners.

A control system brings together the different systems in your home, including televisions and related components, audio systems, HVAC, lighting, surveillance/security, irrigation, pools and spas, doors and gates, shades and drapes, phones and intercoms, energy management systems and Internet-based devices & media.
