Smart Home industry leading manufacturer Savant are due to release an app for apple TV allowing users to have an on screen display.
Access Savant Scenes, Services, and Channel Favourites with a gorgeous interface designed for the TV.
Provides end users with full “heads up” control of their living space
Designed to work seamlessly with the Savant Pro Remote and Button Remote.
Also will be compatible with the Siri Apple TV Remote.
Can be controlled with the Savant Pro App via the new Savant Home App service or within the existing Apple TV service.
Giving users a heads up display on the any TV set connected to the system allows them to scroll through their CCTV cameras with ease, select them to go full screen and then control their cameras with the remote control to allow zooming functions etc.
Its set to work with all CCTV cameras that work with Savant currently, which is great news for all the Dahua and Hikvision clients we already have.
If you already have a Hikvision or Dahua CCTV system get in touch on the link below and find out how we can enable this feature for you.
Control the climate of the room with the display on the TV screen. This includes support for not only heating but cooling too, and the background of the TV changes from orange to blue to indicate whether the room is heating or cooling.
If the HVAC system supports it, you can also control the fan and the humidity in the room too.
The system supports both single set point and dual set point systems, and can be integrated with most leading HVAC manufacturers including Heatmiser.
The Savant Home app for Apple TV is also set to support control of blinds and lighting. A great feature for hospitality environments where the users get a sleek display on the in room TV screen and allows the users to lower the blinds with the TV remote.
Its set to support both fixed shades such as Somfy and Variable Shades such as Lutron and Qmotion. The main difference being that users can set variable shades to pre-set positions such as 20% for sunny winter days when the sun is low.
