Savant, the smart home technology company, announced last week that it is partnering with First Texas Homes to provide built-in home automation and control in all new production homes. First Texas Homes will offer smart-home capabilities from Savant, including the ability to control lighting, climate, entertainment, and security as a standard offering in their new homes.
With more than a decade of experience bringing premium home automation to the world’s most luxurious properties, Savant sees the partnership as indicative of the future of the home building industry. “Homeowners are increasingly looking to tailor their homes to the way they live and enjoy a seamless connected lifestyle,” said Mark Samuel, EVP of Savant. “As leaders in standardizing smart home technology for their homebuyers, First Texas Homes is a great partner for Savant and we look forward to providing a personalized, fully integrated home experience.”
All First Texas Homes will include a Savant Smart Host, Pro Remote and Savant Metropolitan lighting, as well as an integration with Ecobee thermostats, Linear garage door openers, Honeywell security systems, and cameras. Houses are pre-wired for enhanced networks and audio distribution, and homeowners will be able to choose from several upgrade options through First Texas Homes integrator partner, HomePro. These options also include the ability to integrate media rooms, finishing out the distributed audio, adding additional cameras, as well as new features in development.
