TrueControl for Mac - MacBook Air

Savant has brought the familiarity and intuitive nature of the Apple user interface to both home automation and commercial control

New Savant app transforms any Mac computer into a virtual user interface for Savant SmartSystems

Hungerford, Berkshire, UK: 2 August, 2012 – With the recent announcement from Savant Systems LLC of its TrueControl for Mac® app, a software application that enables users to access the control functionality of Savant's SmartSystems™ Apple®-based home automation and commercial control solutions from the desktop of any Mac OS® X computer, RGB Communications' Savant accredited channel partners can now offer extended control solutions delivering unprecedented levels of efficiency and simplicity.

"TrueControl for Mac, which matches the look and feel of Savant's award winning iOS apps already available for the iPad®, iPhone® and iPod touch®, once again demonstrates how successfully Savant has brought the familiarity and intuitive nature of the Apple user interface to both home automation and commercial control" explained Gordon Innocent, Chairman of RGB, one of the top UK technical AV distributors and Savant's exclusive distributor for the UK and Ireland.

TrueControl for Mac enables users to easily access and control lighting, temperature, music, movies, security and more from a wide range of Apple® devices which now includes the MacBook®, MacBook Air®, MacBook Pro®, and iMac® in a Savant-enabled home or commercial facility.

By converting existing Mac computers into additional interfaces, the TrueControl for Mac app is an elegant, affordable and convenient way to access and manage a Savant system using a local area network at home or on the road.

As with all of Savant's iOS device apps, connectivity and response time is optimised between the TrueControl app for Mac and the native OS® X processing that is at the heart of every Savant control system.

The introduction of TrueControl for Mac continues to validate RGB's decision to become a Savant distributor. That decision was driven by Savant's ability to deliver the first real alternative to the more established control suppliers and the obvious connection with Apple.

Crucially important to RGB is that Savant's systems allows it to provide its channel partners with a solution based on a robust, reliable and well accepted platform, which is easier to programme than other solutions in the marketplace and which allows their customers to make use of what they already have on their desk at home or at the office, or in their bag or pocket i.e. any Mac computer or any Apple mobile device.

The main features of Savant's TrueControl app for Mac includes: two-way control of lights, climate, audio, video and more from the Mac desktop; the extension of total home and commercial control to the office without the need for an additional Savant interface; delivery of the same automation and control capabilities that exist on other Savant interfaces; the ability to use existing Mac computers in the classroom or conference room to control the projector, audio, lights and more and configuration using RacePoint Blueprint™.

"Our Savant accredited channel partners are able to offer a very attractive home automation and commercial control proposition to their prospective customers, a proposition which gives them considerable competitive edge, a key factor in today's challenging business environment," added Innocent.
