Savant is making Sin City elegant with the grand opening of its Vegas Modern 001: a 15,000-square-foot residential experience center with views of the Las Vegas Strip. Brought to life in partnership with Las Vegas-based design group Blue Heron, and technology integrator Eagle Sentry, the location stands as a centerpiece of modern wellness and design using the latest smart home technology advances.
Among the tech on display in Savant’s Vegas Modern are tunable lighting, motorized shades, energy management using smart grid technology, 43 zones of multiroom audio and 17 zones of video, all hidden within plain sight and controllable using a centralized interface of remotes, panels or mobile apps. Even more astounding is the fact that all the technology is integrated into 7-inch “troughs” that run along the outside of the wall, allowing for smooth clean lines in design that house the light fixtures, smoke detectors, HVAC registers, touch panels, loudspeakers, surveillance cameras and fire sprinklers.
Dynamic Tunable Lighting for Wellness
For those looking to make the trip out to the showroom, Savant’s smart lighting system is on full display, coupled with tunable LED lighting and specification-grade fixtures from USAI Lighting, which uses Savant’s Daylight Mode to synchronize lighting color and temperatures to match the natural sunlight at any time-of-day. Featured throughout the facility, Savant motorized shades, designed in partnership with JGeiger, further compliment the natural light.
Together, it all makes for a comprehensive, end-to-end lighting experience for the home. For quick control, scenes can be created on the Savant app and saved to any keypad button in the house. Savant’s keypads can also be configured to help set the mood, enhancing the entertainment experience to activate full color lighting.
Savant Racepoint Energy Management
The home is also designed with sustainability in mind and features the largest residential solar array in the region, a fully automated power panel, as well as Savant’s Racepoint microgrid technology.
Savant energy solutions paired with the vast solar infrastructure can maintain operation of the entire home under normal conditions for up to 8 hours; or nearly 24 hours if only essential devices are active. The microgrid works day and night to optimize the consumption of power under all conditions, providing a comfortable, secure environment that maximizes efficiency and reduces energy costs.
Forty-Three AV Zones of Entertainment
Scattered throughout the facility and integrated (as well as hidden) into the design décor, Savant has installed 15 4K video sources and an audio system featuring 43 zones of high-resolution music. Smart multi-zone amplifiers with access to streaming service providers, architectural loudspeakers, soundbars, subwoofers: all are on display within the facility.
The massive installation showcases Savant’s broad range of high-performance entertainment products, as well as their abilities to blend seamlessly into the environment and communicate in near-real time with one another over IP channels to orchestrate relaxing soundscapes and scenes in conjunction with the other features of the house.
The facility is not only available for CE pros to tour with their clients, but also hosts interactive virtual tours (available to be booked by emailing email@example.com).
