The acquisition provides Savant with a lighting control platform as well as a broad range of keypad offerings to complement the company's iOS user interface solutions for residential and commercial control applications.
"The acquisition of LiteTouch brings to Savant a comprehensive lighting control system including a broad range of aesthetically pleasing keypad solutions from a respected and recognized supplier," said Savant CEO, Robert Madonna. "Our sales channel has been asking for a lineup of lighting control and integrated keypad products from Savant that operate in concert with Apple iOS devices to manage and control a vast array of connected home and commercial technologies."
The LiteTouch keypads will fully support a wide array of controlled devices including third party lighting systems as part of Savant's ecosystem of advanced automation.
“LiteTouch is proud to join the Savant Family,” said Angie Larson, vice president of sales and marketing for LiteTouch. “Savant's acquisition of LiteTouch creates unique opportunities for industry innovation, design collaboration and product development.”
"By leveraging LiteTouch's three decades of lighting control success coupled with Savant's award-winning TrueImage interface, users will now have access to the most powerful automation, lighting and media control platform," Madonna added.
Savant's new lighting control group will continue to operate out of the Salt Lake City area.
