HYANNIS, MASS. January 22nd, 2020— Savant®, a leader in smart home technology, has enhanced their existing partnership with network products and services provider NETGEAR to offer the full suite of the company’s networking solutions to technology integrators. This exclusive arrangement will make best- in-class products and services available to integrators, enabling them to improve efficiency for any job size while creating new opportunities by offering superior networking capabilities along with exclusive, co-engineered solutions for the custom installation market.
As audio/video, lighting and IP have come together along with a limitless array of IoT devices in the modern smart home, the role of the network has become more vital than ever before. The objective of the alliance between Savant and NETGEAR is to create networking solutions that are optimized for the Savant smart home ecosystem, streamlining design, installation and service processes for integration professionals. Additionally, Savant and NETGEAR are working on a strategic roadmap of new products and services exclusive to and optimized for Savant. Through this partnership, integrators will gain access to 24/7 system design and support services, increasing jobsite efficiency while ensuring client satisfaction.
“Savant and NETGEAR have joined forces to reduce the cost and complexity associated with home automation,” said Vikram Mehta, senior vice president of SMB products for NETGEAR. “Our role in this strategic partnership is as follows: first, NETGEAR is engineering networking products specifically for home automation applications; second, we’re integrating the management of our products into Savant’s management framework; third, we’re providing technical support and training to the Savant community of integrators; and finally, we’re supporting Savant’s efforts to offer pre-set solution bundles for certain job types to make purchasing our products directly from Savant more seamless for integrators.”
Integrators will appreciate the confidence knowing that NETGEAR is a Savant Recommended Partner, offering best-in-class solutions for all aspects of networking including wireless, routers, mobile hot- spots, SMB products (Small Medium Business), gaming solutions and more. Both companies are committed to exhaustive testing, ensuring seamless interoperability and unparalleled performance between their respective platforms. Savant and NETGEAR are also collaborating on their cloud-based management platforms (Savant SCM and NETGEAR Insight) in order to provide network monitoring and management capabilities.
“Understanding the vitality of networking products and services to our integration partners for jobs of every size, it was our objective to align with a highly respected provider such as NETGEAR,” said Robert Madonna, CEO at Savant. “Savant and NETGEAR are creating a hassle-free, highly streamlined infrastructure that converts the challenges of networking into an important opportunity for integrators.”
NETGEAR devices, including the 10-Gig M4300 switches that power Savant’s much heralded video-over- IP solutions, previously have been obtainable on the Savant store. Integrators can now expect a broader range NETGEAR products to be available on the Savant store, with all purchases counting toward their yearly incentive program.
