Loyal Apple enthusiasts looking for a solution to whole-home automation and A/V integration can now get yet another use out of their iPhones and iPod Touches.
Osterville, MA-based Savant Systems has debuted its unique home automation and control platform based on Mac’s OS X Leopard, giving professional installers an option for Apple fans who want to stick to their guns rather than gravitate toward a different proprietary system.
Apple developers can incorporate Savant’s graphical program RacePoint Blueprint, and its configuration software, with Quartz Composer and Automator to offer integration of TVs, DVD players, A/V receivers, settop boxes, projectors, lighting, window treatments … and of course items such as Apple TV and iPod.
And the iPod Touch and iPhone? Well, along with in-wall and wireless touchpanels using the OS X-based technology, homeowners will be able to hit their iPortables to access and command devices within their homes.
Somewhere Steve Jobs is smiling.
