Hi,

I have a Savant system running 6.0+ software and wanted to upgrade to 7.0. I am being told the software upgrade alone is 790$+ and about 2 days of programming at $85/hr. Im no programmer but this seems a little crazy for an upgrade of system software so that it becomes compatible with new apps etc.

Has anyone upgraded and if so does this seem reasonable?

Thanks!

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 see there is no way it should take 16 hours, though. We've done a number of them and none have taken close to that long.

The new Savant app is pretty nice. I think you will like it a lot.

Thank Travisleo,
Yes the app looks great - I like how easy it looks to create custom scenes. My system includes AV/Shades/HVAC/Lighting/Security. I agree that the programming seems excessive for an upgrade...
Thanks again for the info.
