Savant

SAVANT

Cost:

From $10,000 and up

Savant Systems is an Apple based home automation system with options for remote control access over audio, video, media and more. Savant stands out as the only home automation system that is built using the Apple operating system platform. The company boasts of a good system response, a customizable iOS interface and more as a result of an Apple product communicating with an Apple built system.

Savant Systems provides a completely customizable home automation option. The system can also be expanded for home control upgrades and changes over time. Owning an Apple iPad, iPod or iPhone are necessary to control the Savant System and a limitation for those that don't currently user or want to use an Apple device.

Savant's home automation system can take control of just about any electronic device in the house. Some examples they provide include:

  • Pressing the "Home" button on your Apple product, when they arrive, will allow a home owner to turn off the security system, activate a pattern of lights that have been pre-programmed into the system, adjust the thermostat and turn on whole-house audio to listen to your favorite music.
  • With a Savant home automation system the home owner has the choice to not only set a wake up alarm but open shades, turn on lights, start the coffee maker and more.
  • When leaving the house, Savant provides an “Away” button to automatically adjust lighting as preferred by the home owner, adjust the temperature, close the electric blinds or shades, and turn on the security system.

All Savant products are sold through authorized dealers that provide assistance planning, installing and servicing the system for years to come. Savant is sold across the globe and the professionalism and friendliness of the customer service experience is based on each location you encounter.

Savant is generally not a home automation system for the budget minded. The cost of the entire product and installation is dependent on what features you choose and how large of a home you want to outfit. It's reported that most customers spend at least $10 to $15 thousand and many spend much more depending on several factors. Also, the security system is separate from Savant's product line and an added expense.

If you love your Apple products and have the luxury of a big wallet, Savant provides a savvy, responsive and customizable home automation system with some nice features. But, for those that don't want to be strapped to an Apple device and aren't one to constantly keep electronics on person, Savant may be less of a good fit.

The Home Automation Store

THE HOME AUTOMATION STORE

Visit Site

Cost:

Varies based on equipment selected

The Home Automation Store is an online retailer of home automation products, specifically X10 compatible products. X10 products use your homes existing wiring to allow products to communicate with each other. The Home Automation Store also sells some Z-Wave compatible products (which are similar to X10 products except they are wireless).

Searching the website is relatively simple, you may search their short list of product types on the left hand side of the home page with ease. Once you find a product you're interested in you may click on it for further details.

The Home Automation Store has a basic shipping policy but, no discounts or free shipping are available for large dollar orders. The return policy is also straightforward. If an item is damaged in shipping, you can get a full refund. There is a 30 day window to return items with a possible $15 restocking fee. Refunds will be issued within 10 days of receipt. Since The Home Automation Store is not a reseller of their own products, warranty on products is dictated by the manufacturer and may seem complicated for those that want an efficient shopping experience.

The Home Automation store failed to really grab our attention. To purchase a system you need to choose each individual product, and have a strong knowledge of home automation to do this yourself. With their average selection and website we had a tough time getting excited about The Home Automation Store.

Usually all you need is a computer or a mobile phone to easily control and monitor the many aspects of your home. Home automation can also be enhanced with a home security system to offer added security for your home and family.

There are a number of competent home automation companies that exist today. However, these home automation services can vary greatly in features offered and installation costs. Before selecting a home automation system, you should consider the following:

  • Usability. How technically savvy do you have to be to operate the home automation product? If it's too complicated, it's just not worth it.
  • Customer service. If you have a question or problem with your home automation system, will there be someone who can quickly answer your questions?
  • Guarantee. If the home automation system doesn't work, or you change your mind, can you return it for your money back?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Home Automation solutions available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right home automation system that you're looking for!
