Savant has introduced a new line of touchscreens designed to control the smart home. The Wally line, which launches first in a 5.5-inch form factor (with 2.9- and 8-inch versions to follow), has a high-resolution color screen and features a presence sensor for automatic activation. The 5.5-inch Wally fits in a single-gang enclosure and can be powered via Power Over Ethernet (POE). It will be available this month in a white or black finish.
Savant has announced the introduction of Wally--a family of dedicated touch screens for intuitive access to smart home features. The Wally lineup has been designed to blend seamlessly into any décor while placing climate, lighting, entertainment and more at the fingertips of the homeowner, as well as the groundbreaking Savant Scenes technology that personalizes the smart home experience for each user.
The Savant Wally touch screen product line includes high-resolution color touch screens utilizing technology from Savant's award-winning Pro Remote. Wally can easily control integrated climate, advanced lighting, entertainment and activation of Savant Scenes to give users the luxury and convenience of smart home control from a small, in-wall form factor. Wally touch screens utilize a presence sensor to activate them automatically as a person approaches, making them effortless to use.
The first Wally product to be available is a single-gang 5.5-inch touch screen (with 2.9-inch and 8-inch versions to follow later in the year) that delivers complete home control and stunning high-resolution graphics. For integators, the Wally product line is simple to install, fitting in a traditional single-gang enclosure and low voltage powered using Power over Ethernet (POE 802.3af).
"Our network of integrators has reported a growing demand for dedicated touch screens in an array of sizes," stated Savant CEO Robert Madonna. "Our premium lineup of Wally touch screens gives homeowners an ideal solution for any décor or application while leveraging Savant's class-leading user interface to bring the best control experience to any room in the home."
Savant Wally touch screens are available in white or black and will begin shipping in June 2017.
