Savant has enhanced its remote control experience, enabling users to personalise each Pro Remote by room or by user. In addition to touchscreen personalisation, the Pro Remote’s native voice button can also be configured for Siri voice activation.    

Savant claims its Pro Remote is the most intuitive 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. With the latest release from Savant, users can now select from all available Savant Scenes, Services and Favorite Channels and add the ones they use the most frequently to the home screen for effortless access. Users can set up a home screen that is particular to the functionality of each room or create a home screen that is specific to each user.

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.  By pushing the microphone button, Savant users can now ask Siri to find a movie, an album, an artist, a playlist or particular streaming service. This user-activated approach allows integrators to deliver the convenience of voice command functionality to clients who prefer the security of a voice agent that is not always listening.

Eli Weinkle, of Californian based install company NXT AV, says, “The new Savant Pro Remote Home Screen update is fantastic. It is simple to set up custom profiles and I love the fact that we can easily re-order Favorite Channels, Scenes and Services directly from the remote’s Home Screen.”

The new Savant Pro Remote features are available now and can be seen at the up-coming CEDIA Expo.
