Introducing Savant Skill for Amazon Alexa
It wouldn't be full home integration without some level of Amazon, which is probably why Savant has created their new skill for Alexa.
Homeowners can now initiate, schedule, edit, or delete a Savant Scene using Amazon Alexa the same way they would from the Savant Pro Remote. Savant is calling the setup "intuitive" and setting it up is as easy as linking accounts and letting Amazon do the rest.
"Our objective is to deliver the best smart home user experience along with leading edge innovations that bring added value to our network of integrators," stated Savant CEO Robert Madonna. "Adding further voice control options with our Alexa skill accomplishes both without question."
Savant's Amazon Alexa interface is based upon cloud-to-cloud communication between the two services, leveraging the power of Savant's robust, redundant cloud infrastructure. Savant's new skill is available immediately.
