Savant’s first-to-market smart sound bar with embedded control
software delivers built-in music streaming, Siri control of HomeKit
devices and smart home functionality
HYANNIS, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/AppleTV?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#AppleTVlt;/agt;–Savant, a leader in smart home technology, is uniquely embedding their
Smart Home Software in the Savant Smart Soundbar. This market innovation
brings Siri Voice command functionality and HomeKit compatibility to the
Savant connected home experience. The Smart Soundbar is the first of
many advanced audio products to become available from Savant that
directly control HomeKit and Savant third party devices using Savant
smart home software running inside.
Combined with Savant’s already impressive roster of 3rd party
integration partners, effortless control of HomeKit compatible devices
such as door locks, smart thermostats, light bulbs and more is just a
voice command away utilizing Siri on an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch,
HomePod and now through the native voice button on Savant’s Pro Remote.
Home Entertainment with Siri
Thanks to IP-based integration with Apple TV, Savant users will enjoy
easy and intuitive control over media player commands such as (PLAY,
PAUSE, STOP, UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT, SELECRT/MENU, ETC.) and direct access
to the Apple TV HOME SCREEN and NOW PLAYING commands. Using the Savant
Pro Remote with its powerful voice engine, users can enjoy push-to-talk
voice control via Siri.
The Savant Pro Remote
Unlike any other user experience for the Apple TV, the award-winning
Savant Pro Remote is the most intuitive human interface for
entertainment systems and smart home functionality featuring an
app-driven platform and the perfect blend of hard buttons, touchscreen
interface and voice control. Having already delivered native
integrations with Google Home and Amazon Alexa voice assistants to the
Savant platform, users will now have access to Siri-based voice control
of Apple TV using the Savant Pro Remote. Savant users can now simply ask
Siri to find a movie, an album, an artist, a playlist, a streaming
service and more.
This new functionality, which includes Apple HomeKit integration with
hundreds of smart home devices, represents one of the most requested
features for this product by Savant customers worldwide and is easily
configured by Savant’s iPad-based Studio app and Blueprint Software.
With the recent introduction of Savant’s standalone lighting, climate
and music apps, users benefit from unmatched functionality and enhanced
integration with Apple TV and HomeKit.
