That's hard to say. I would check Ebay for comparable products. I would guess a couple of thousand dollars, on the high end. It's not worth anything without the host, though.

Hi.

You've got a Savant SSP-1200 chasis with some audio and video cards inserted in it. The chasis is still a current model but the cards are a bit dated and won't be worth a lot. You need a...

We're a large integrator for both Control4 and Savant in the Denver area. I like both platforms. Control4 integrates with more things but we have had better reliability with Savant. Quite...

Find a good integrator that is familiar with both Savant and Lutron. Savant has basically said that they are getting out of the panelized lighting control business so I would strongly look at Lutron...

This is supposed to be fixed in the app update that comes out this week. It was a known bug but I believe it will be addressed in this release.

You should be OK. The more you can run them perpendicular, instead of parallel, the better off you will be. 17"-20" apart should be fine, though.

The cost of the license upgrade makes sense but there is no way it should take two days of programming. It's usually a 3-5 hour process, but can be more depending on the complexity of the system. I...

Hi Stereomax,

Savant isn't locked down like Crestron but it's not something that you can program yourself. You'll need a certified Savant programmer to make the changes for you. The good news,...

I don't think anyone disagrees about DM being a great product. It is. But there is a lot more to a home automation system than HDMI switching.
