If you weren’t already convinced, the future that we imagined back in the 1980s is officially here. Although we don’t have the type of hover boards featured in Back to the Future II, we can use our watches to control things, like in the popular 1980s television show Knight Rider.
As Apple Watches gained popularity a few years back, many people started using them for things like making phone calls and checking their email, but when you have an Orange County audiovisual company like Good Sounds install a Savant Pro system in you home, you can now use your Apple Watch to easily control multiple systems within your home.
Savant Systems has done a great job of creating an app that allows homeowners to quickly and easily change the atmosphere of a room with the touch of a button. By controlling things like lighting, window shades, audio, video, and climate using an Apple Watch with the Savant Pro App, you always have control at the tip of your finger. You can even control systems remotely. So, if you want to turn up the cooling system in your home before you get there, you can do it from you watch. Or if you want to turn on the downstairs lights from an upstairs room, you can do that too. No need to carry around an iPad or walk over to a wall-mounted touchpanel.
The Savant Pro App even allows you to create “scenes,” so changing the mood in a room is as easy as clicking one button. You could create things like a “party scene,” a “movie-watching scene,” or a “date night scene” that changes the audio, video, and lighting to your pre-programmed settings. And if you’re thinking that creating the scenes is challenging—it’s not! The system is very intuitive, even for those that don’t consider themselves particularly “tech savvy.”
You Apple Watch can also send you alerts if anything is out-of-the-ordinary at you home. These alerts can be customized, so you are only alerted about the things you care about.
While anyone can purchase an Apple Watch, the use of the Savant Pro App requires a Savant System that has been installed by a licensed Savant dealer, such as Good Sounds in Orange County. An authorized Savant dealer has completed the rigorous Savant certification program and is able to design and install Savant systems using their Pro products.
