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...

We're a Steinway Lyngdorf dealer in Denver, CO so I'm probably a bit biased. :) That being said, you will love the set-up! The S Series are small but they pack a punch, especially with LS woofers...

I was referring more to the source code aspect of this. If the client owns the source code, I agree that this make Savant "as locked down" as other systems. In many instances, though, the client...

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,...

Here's a quick comparison we did on Savant vs. Control4. Sounds like either of those would work for what you are trying to do. Plus, Savant now has a line of entry-level controllers that would make...

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.

You should strongly consider Savant for your new system. We have taken out a number of poorly performing Crestron systems and replaced the with Savant. Nothing but happy clients!

Everything you want to do can be donefor a price. I would find a good Residential Integrator in the area and have them develop a system design and budget.

A control4 system will work great for this, as well. Plus, the keypads can also be used for lighting control if you want to do that.

The audio down-mixing happens on the input side so that it knows what format to output to each device. If it happened on the output side, you wouldn't be able to "mix" audio outputs on a card. I...

I don't know that there are many switches out there that support 4K yet. It is still very much an emerging standard.

Control4 has their own 8x8 matrix. We have it in our office and it works real well. The extenders seem very reliable after a few months of use.

AppleTV is a great source for streaming media content and has an HDMI output so you can tie it into a matrix switch. You...
