Savant has broadened its range of offerings to include Apple-based telephony products for residential and commercial installations.
Savant offers several handset options, including wired or digital enhanced cordless telecommunications wireless (DECT) models, and an integrated family of diverse communication endpoints, including Apple’s telephony-enabled iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Savant’s scalable telephony solution is based upon the Savant private branch exchange (PBX) server and delivers full-duplex communication capabilities. The Savant PBX supports up to 72 endpoints all capable of making internal and external local, long distance, and international calls.
Savant Telephony is an interface that is intuitive and seamlessly integrated with the control and automation functionality. “We wanted to expand the products and services we offer to our residential and commercial dealers, and Savant Telephony provides increased opportunity in a very elegant package,” stated Savant CEO Robert Madonna. “Through the development of a feature-rich SIP client, Savant engineers took great care to transform the iPod touch and iPad into versatile wireless handsets rich with the added benefits of complete control functionality, as well as the countless apps available from the Apple App Store,” Madonna concluded.
Savant Telephony responds to automation and control events providing users with customizable communication, automation, and control in a single architecture.
Savant Telephony offers an optional public announcement system (PAS-1000), which integrates into the Savant family of distributed audio solutions. The PAS-1000 unites the functions of a telephone with a high-performance digital amplifier for paging, broadcasting announcements, and supplying background music to assigned rooms, hallways, business floors, and more.
The Savant Telephony Solution will be on display at CEDIA 2011 in booth 4825 and available through authorized Savant dealers immediately following the show.
