Voice control (that actually works like it is supposed to) is the epitome of any smart home experience, according to most Orange County homeowners. Who doesn’t want to tell their home what to do from the comfort of their couch or bed? Or turn on their outdoor hot tub without having to set foot outside? Up until recently, Orange County smart homes utilizing Savant had to use the Savant Pro Remote for any voice commands the wished to give, but not too long ago, Savant Systems introduced a new skill that integrates their system with Amazon Alexa.
Orange County homeowners currently with a Savant Pro System running da Vinci 8.4 or higher can start using Amazon Alexa today. Those running an earlier version of da Vinci will need an Orange County audio video company like Good Sounds to perform an upgrade to their system before they can begin using Alexa for home voice control.
To use Amazon Alexa in connection with your Savant System, you will need to download the Amazon Alexa app on your computer or mobile device and enable the Savant skill. Once you log into your Savant user account from the app, Alexa and your Savant system will be connected. From there, you will link your Savant-controlled devices to the Amazon Alexa app.
Once you’ve completed the intuitive process of linking Amazon Alexa to your Savant system, you can begin doing things like turning your lights on and off using only your voice. You can also create and schedule a Savant Scene in the same way you would be able to with the Savant Pro Remote, using the scene engine on the app. You can then edit or delete the scene at any time. You can also use Alexa voice control to activate things like televisions, your home audio system, your heating and cooling systems, automated shades, pool and spa equipment, and more.
For those Orange County homeowners looking to install a smart home system for the first time, Good Sounds can set up a control system in your home that includes Amazon Alexa, giving you convenient voice control over virtually all of the systems in your home from day one!
