Savant Systems LLC has announced the introduction of Savant Lighting Control, transforming its LiteTouch products into a lighting control solution that can be used as part of a complete package within Savant’s home automation and energy management ecosystem, or as a standalone lighting control system.

Savant Lighting Control will take advantage of the company’s software-based system configuration, hardware devices and user interface options, giving integrators and designers versatile and scalable lighting control solutions, according to the company.  Savant acquired LiteTouch in February 2012 and earlier this year debuted some new keypad designs inspired from the buyout.

Users will be able to activate lights via Savant’s keypads as well as iOS and Mac apps including TrueControl and TrueImage Control. Savant Lighting Control can also be implemented as a standalone lighting solution, utilizing the same interoperability that LiteTouch has offered to third-party control vendors. Savant’s backwards compatible hardware and software design allows for support and system upgrade of all LiteTouch systems that are already installed in the field. Savant will continue to support third-party lighting control systems through the company’s Partners in Excellence Program.

“Savant brought game-changing innovation to several critical elements of the control and automation space and implementing the same powerful advantages to the lighting control category is a very natural extension of our business,” explains Bob Madonna, Savant CEO. “Our initial lighting control product designs are focused on expanding the range of system configurations and price points, giving integrators a powerful and competitive solution set that represents only the beginning of Savant’s innovation in the lighting control segment,” Madonna stated.

Savant Lighting Control will be available autumn 2012 through both the Savant and LiteTouch dealer networks. Savant Lighting Control will be on display at the 2012 CEDIA Expo in Demo Room ICC-109.
