Savant Introduces Wall-Mounted Touchscreen Lineup Savant has launched its Wally family of dedicated touchscreens.RS Staff ⋅ Jun 7, 2017 Savant has launched its Wally family of dedicated touchscreens. The Wally lineup has been designed to blend into décor while placing climate, lighting, and entertainment control at the fingertips of the homeowner. The touchscreens also feature personalization options via Savant Scene. The Wally includes high-resolution color, borrowed from Savant’s Pro Remote line. The Wally can control integrated climate, advanced lighting, entertainment, and Savant Scenes to give users smart home control from a small, in-wall form factor. Wally touchscreens utilize a presence sensor to activate them automatically as a person approaches. The first Wally product to be available is a single-gang, 5.5-inch touchscreen, with 2.9-inch and 8-inch versions to follow later in the year. The Wally product line fits in a traditional single gang enclosure and uses low-voltage power via Power over Ethernet (POE 802.3af). “Our network of integrators has reported a growing demand for dedicated touchscreens in an array of sizes,” said Savant CEO Robert Madonna. “Our premium lineup of Wally touchscreens gives homeowners an ideal solution for any décor or application while leveraging Savant’s class-leading user interface to bring the best control experience to any room in the home.” Savant Wally touchscreens are available in white or black and will begin shipping in June, 2017.
