Savant Systems has added complete control compatibility with Lutron’s new HomeWorks QS system, as part of Savant’s Excellence In AV initiative — an effort to achieve global compatibility between Savant’s control systems and a diverse group of manufacturers.
“We are pleased to be part of Savant’s Excellence in AV program, making integration efficient and intuitive for installers and providing the most elegant solution to end users,” said Rich Black, residential product development manager at Lutron.
Participation in Savant’s Excellence In AV cooperative program will facilitate the seamless integration of Lutron’s HomeWorks QS device protocol within the Savant system environment.
“Maintaining compatibility with all of the latest product introductions from our Excellence in AV participants is the core mission of the program and critical to our dealer/installers,” said Savant’s director of business development, Bob Ross. “We are pleased to be able to work directly with Lutron in order to profile new products in a timely fashion and provide field support bringing real value to our dealer/installers.”
The core of Savant’s technology is an open programmable platform built upon the Mac OS X operating system supporting various communication protocols and offering high speed AV switching, scaling and processing.
