Savant, a leader in smart home technology, has announced today the introduction of Savant Shades, a line of design-forward motorized shades that eliminate the traditional unsightly mechanisms and enclosures found on legacy motorized shades.
Savant’s window treatments are designed in conjunction with window treatment expert James Geiger and available exclusively through Savant. Featuring an array of beautiful, carefully selected fabrics, Savant Shades are the modern window treatment solution for any décor-conscious smart home consumer.
Savant Shades are meticulously crafted and available in blackout, translucent and sheer fabrics. Unlike conventional shading solutions, Savant Shades are a fascia-free design — meaning that window boxes concealing unsightly wires, screws or fasteners are no longer required resulting in the cleanest look possible. Savant Shades deliver a level of simplicity and elegance throughout the home that was unavailable until now.
Savant Shades are integrator-friendly as well, decreasing cost and installation time with innovations such as a single motor system capable of driving multiple shades and a unique two-phase installation process that enables integrators to test mount the assemblies before fabric is ordered, maximizing profit opportunity while virtually eliminating fitment errors. Once installed, the shades are intuitively configured using Savant’s Blueprint software, enabling integrators to easily synchronize timing, set stop limits and other parameters. Shades can be easily included in any Savant Scene, configurable by the integrator or the homeowner.
Additionally, Savant has designed a modern eCommerce platform called The Savant Shade Designer, which makes it simple for integrators to plan and price each job. An intuitive online store eliminates the unexpected costs that plague other shade solutions and simplifies the ordering of standard and custom fabrics, reducing delivery time to as little as three weeks.
By offering an end-to-end solution that comprises sophisticated energy management, lighting control, climate, motorized shades and the most intuitive user experience available, Savant has created a truly intelligent environment that operates seamlessly because it has all been engineered together. Additionally, Savant’s comprehensive solution delivers an unprecedented level of usage efficiency by bringing all of these systems together under the award-winning Savant luxury home automation system. Savant’s control platform will continue to support third-party shading solutions as it does today.
“By adding a beautiful line of shading products, Savant has created a complete connected home solution that is the easiest to control and offers real advantages to the customer — including a truly smart environment that delivers energy efficiency without compromising lifestyle and convenience,” stated Savant CEO Robert Madonna. “We are excited to introduce a definitively premium shading solution as part of our new product offerings.”
Savant Shades are now shipping and available for specification immediately.
“I’m really looking forward to adding Savant shades to our inventory immediately. I’ve worked with other shading systems and I’m a huge fan of Savant’s approach,” said Peggy Ryan Marchese, owner of Upstaged, a luxury home staging service in New Jersey. “I’m impressed with the look, the simplicity, and the color palate, it’s a perfect fit for what I do. If these shades stand up to Savant’s brand reputation for super performing luxury home products, I’m confident this will be a winner for many of my clients.”
