HYANNIS, MASS. — September 18th, 2019 — Savant®, a leader in smart home technology, was honored with four prestigious awards at the 2019 CEDIA Expo in Denver, CO. The awards recognize Savant for contributing significant innovations to the luxury smart home market, providing new and exciting opportunities for integration professionals while changing the smart home experience for end-users.
CEDIA Hall of Fame Award—Savant TrueImage™
The CEDIA Hall of Fame Award honors products that have had a significant positive impact on the CEDIA community. In 2016, Savant was honored with a Hall of Fame Award with the Savant Pro Host, and in 2017, the Savant System 12 was awarded for breaking new ground in the smart home market. This year, the Savant TrueImage user experience has been honored. Perhaps one of Savant’s most visually stunning innovations, TrueImage enables users to control their lighting from any Savant control system interface directly from a photographic image of the room. Simply touch a light to turn it on/off/dim.
CEDIA Best New Product Award—Breaker Companion Modules
Savant has been awarded a CEDIA best new product award for their Breaker-Companion Modules, which provide energy and lighting control with built-in utility-grade energy monitoring, data on historical energy usage and dynamic control throughout the home.

Savant’s Breaker-Companion modules are also compatible with Apple HomeKit. There has never been a smart home solution like the Breaker-Companion Modules, engineered to deliver monitoring, control and energy management all from a compact, easy to install form factor.
CEDIA Best of Show—IP-based Apple integration
Savant’s IP-based integration with Apple TV enables users to enjoy intuitive control of media player commands such as (PLAY, PAUSE, STOP, UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT, SELECT/MENU, ETC.) as well as the HOME SCREEN and NOW PLAYING features.
