- Savant is a world leading manufacturer of home automation systems, It’s premium smart control and home automation solutions offer personification features that make the difference in a smart home and a Savant Home.
- Savant launched one of the first-ever (approved) two-way integration between Apple TV and a third-party home automation system at the recent ISE.

- 2-way integration was formed feasible by Apple’s revelation of a long-awaited API for two-way IP integration by the end of last year at WWDC 2018. Apple also reported Control4, Crestron and Savant as the first three company’s first three home-automation partners. Apart of Savant, Crestron Presented and launched its own Apple TV integration at ISE, but offered a different operation. As per our knowledge, Savant is the first to implement an OSD through Apple remote.
- In Addition, Trevor de Maat (Savant international sales director) pulled up the Savant services using the Apple remote on the TV and operated via three-level UI Displaying home-automation scenes at the top, paired devices and rooms in the center, and favorite channels at the end.
- The combination is pretty good. Trevor de Matt explained in a local room how the user could control the devices and then to dim or brighten the load he used the touch-pad on the Apple TV remote just by clicking the thumbnail on the TV OSD. You can monitor how the lights were responding live on the thumbnail image.
