Savant has announced significant updates to Studio, the company’s iPad-based quick configuration tool for integrators. The accessibility and portability of a tablet-based solution such as Savant Studio increases productivity by enabling junior techs to manage S2 host-based system configuration, freeing senior technicians to address more complex assignments in the field.
For the Savant S2 host platform, Studio now features a Smart Behaviors Editor, enabling integrators to create customized workflows that improve configuration efficiency. Examples include the capability to automatically raise/lower a motorized lift when a TV is powered on/off, or creating an audible and/or visual alert when the doorbell has been pressed. Working in conjunction with Savant’s cloud-based central management portal (SCM), user preferences such as Savant Scenes, customized Savant Pro App photos, and other Studio configuration parameters can all be stored in the cloud for fast, easy access.
Savant Studio also enables the S2 host to create a secure, wireless connection to the Savant Pro Remote and other wireless devices without requiring access to the client’s WiFi network — a feature often requested by Savant integrators.

The new version of Savant Studio adds more 3rd party device integrations, including door locks, IP control of Samsung displays that require an encrypted registration process, and more.
The new Alert Center provides a useful checklist of items needed to complete the Savant configuration. The Alert Center notifies integrators of items required to complete the system, such as entering IDs for devices or connections that may prevent an audio or video path from functioning correctly.
New Savant Studio features are available now.
