Savant will be entering a first-of-its-kind partnership with The New Home Company to specify Savant’s Breaker-Companion Modules into energy efficient residences in California. These modules have been designed to snap into most standard breaker panels and enable homeowners to add energy management services to their smart home functionality and enhance their lifestyle while meeting California’s strict Title 24 energy regulations.
Savant’s modules were designed for easy installation into standard electrical panels, including the Square D QO panels by Schneider utilized by New Home. The compact size of each module ensures design application flexibility and ease of installation. Because the modules can be used for many individual electrical load applications throughout the home and are fully compatible with the Savant control ecosystem, New Home has an opportunity to deliver smart home functionality, critical energy usage, and utility grade reporting data across all electrical load types as well as the foundation for a net-zero compliant home design.
According to the company, Savant is the first smart home ecosystem to offer Breaker-Companion Modules controllable via Apple HomeKit. Savant’s entire lighting lineup is also HomeKit compatible including Savant Smart Bulbs, DMX LED Light Strips, DMX and 0-10V lighting fixtures, and any third-party fixture connected to Savant’s DMX or 0-10V controllers. Savant’s HomeKit-compatible lighting solutions can be controlled using Savant’s standalone TrueImage Lighting app or as part of a larger home automation ecosystem utilizing the award-winning Savant Pro app.
Enhanced health and wellness are a top priority for both Savant and New Home. Toward this end, Savant is developing intelligent automation that will not only allow lights to be set at certain levels and color temperatures based on executed scenes, but also allow for a single room or entire homes to be put into a default circadian rhythm mode mitigating circadian cycle disruption and promoting better health and wellness.
