SETTING UP FOR GAME DAY

A perfect example of the difference between automation and control happens every Sunday. Getting ready for kickoff is a time when you interact with a lot of technology.

Each device you use may have smart features. You can simply request that the Houston Texans game play via voice control, choose the right volume with the touch of a button, and remotely dim your lights from your smart phone. When your friends come over, you can easily unlock your front door with another tap.

It’s easy and fun to control each smart device in your home without ever getting up from the couch.

But Savant automation system works a little differently. Different controls are grouped under single commands, so your system ends up doing the heavy lifting for you.

For instance, you can simply tap an integrated button on your control device and your TV display turns on, the sports setting is enabled, and it tunes to the right channel. The sound system is signaled turn on and adjust to a pre-set volume. 

Plus, integrated controls of your lights automatically dim, motorized shades will lower and your thermostat will even set to the optimum temperature.

In other words, your Savant system will work on its own to make you comfortable.

TIMERS AND SENSORS

Additionally, smart home automation offers hands-free options.

When you leave the house, a robust network of occupancy sensors can ensure that your property remains safe. Once they detect you’re out, security features enable the thermostat to adjust to an energy-saving temperature, and all unnecessary electronics power off.

Even if you’ve forgotten to lock to lock the door, your system understands that you’re out of the house and engage the locks accordingly.

And while you’re away, smart timers help your home function normally, whether enacting the sprinkler system, turning on the exterior lights at sundown or adjusting the thermostat before you walk in the door.
