Savant’s new lighting and energy control modules have been designed to offer functionality found with no other solution. The compact, 2-channel energy reporting modules were engineered to deliver control and energy management of lighting as well as other electrical loads, such as household appliances, throughout the home.
Savant’s new lighting and energy modules were designed for easy installation into standard electrical panels, eliminating the need for excessively large, more costly specialty panels. The modules can be used for many individual electrical load applications throughout the home and are fully compatible with the Savant control ecosystem.
This provides technology integrators with the opportunity to deliver better smart home functionality, critical energy usage data across all electrical load types, and a foundation for a net-zero compliant home design, according to the company.
“Savant’s small form factor modules, compatible with a standard panel that can be purchased locally, made it very easy for our electrical contractor partner to install,” explained Ryan McDaniel, president of One-Touch Automation. “That, in addition to the removal of low-voltage wiring from within the lighting control panel, will be an installation game-changer for us.”
Beyond Traditional Lighting Control
Designed in partnership with sister-company Racepoint Energy, Savant lighting and energy modules are engineered to deliver both control and energy management functionality of lighting loads as well as other devices throughout the home.
Integrators can connect large appliances, outlets, pool pumps, and other electrical loads (up to 30 amps) to Savant’s modules and deliver energy consumption data across the whole home to the Savant Pro App, delivering complete, dynamic environmental control of climate, lighting, and other electrical loads.
During peak usage times or other electrical events, homeowners can view power consumption and make real-time adjustments through the Savant Pro App or rely on their Savant system to make adjustments automatically on their behalf.
“These innovative energy modules create a valuable opportunity for integrators to deliver far more than conventional lighting control,” said Savant CEO Bob Madonna. “Now there is a complete lighting and lighting control ecosystem available from Savant that includes shades, fixtures in partnership with USAI Lighting and a level of control capability and energy management unprecedented in the smart home market.”
Savant’s new modules make it easier on electricians, as well,” said Joel Thomas, principal at Sync AVI. “They are more comfortable working with a familiar, standard electrical panel. Displaying the load name on each module is also super convenient, making it easy to identify each one. We appreciate that there is less overall wiring to pull – the installation was intuitive start to finish.”
