Savant Touch Remote Unveiled
Savant Systems Wednesday announced the Savant Touch Remote, a handheld interface that actually features an embedded iPod touch. The device works much like a wireless touchpanel or Savant's iPad application and is meant to provide, the company said, "a simple, elegant and familiar consumer experience."
The device will ship to dealers in the first quarter of next year at an MSRP of $399.
“The Touch Remote leverages the functionality and high performance that Savant brings to control and automation by being the world’s only 100% Apple-based solution,” Savant CEO and founder Bob Madonna said in a statement. “Because our new remote is based upon the iPod touch, it has allowed us to leverage our iPhone/iPod touch application, our own iPBX telephony solution as well as over 200,000 app’s that are available all within an elegant, lightweight user interface."
