Wi-Fi-based user interface offers intuitive ergonomic design and sophisticated functionality at an affordable price

Savant Systems, LLC has announced the introduction of the Wi-Fi®-based Savant Universal Remote. This sleek new remote has been designed for the modern media room, providing intuitive control of an entire audio/video system along with connected devices such as distributed audio, lighting, climate control and other features within a residential or commercial setting. Similar to Savant's existing user interface options, the Savant Universal Remote is self-configuring once connected to the network, eliminating the complex programming associated with competitive products. The new universal remote from Savant expands the brand's presence in the growing connected home marketplace with a versatile and affordable Wi-Fi-based solution.

The Savant Universal Remote supports a menu of screens for controlling services throughout the home or workplace, and because it utilizes Wi-Fi connectivity, users can control devices without pointing or aiming--no direct line of sight is required. "Wi-Fi is the worldwide standard for residential and commercial wireless networking, and this new remote will affordably deliver the control capabilities our customers want by leveraging the network that already exists in their home or business," explained Savant's Executive Vice President Corporate Strategy and Business Development, Jim Carroll.

The Savant Universal Remote features a 1.7-inch color display and backlit buttons, which clearly illuminate essential navigation keys. The Savant Universal Remote has an ergonomic design that fits perfectly in the hand, featuring a customizable color display and a full complement of hard buttons for frequently used functions. Savant's new universal remote delivers unmatched value by bringing sophisticated functionality to a budget-friendly control solution. Features include two-way feedback from supported devices and transport buttons enabling users to navigate Savant's award-winning TrueCommand on-screen navigation technology. When used within a Savant control ecosystem, the Savant Universal Remote is capable of two-way Wi-Fi communication, giving users control of intelligent devices and subsystems from anywhere in the house or facility. If the Savant Universal Remote becomes lost or damaged, no programming is required to activate a replacement--simply log the new remote onto the network and full functionality will automatically be restored. Savant authorized integrators can also upload feature changes and firmware updates remotely, adding value for users while enhancing overall efficiency. The Savant Universal Remote will become available October, 2013. MSRP is $499 including charging dock.
