Smart home technology innovator Savant® has unveiled a West Coast residential experience center in the greater Las Vegas area. The home features an advanced smart living ecosystem combined with modern architecture, all with captivating views of the Las Vegas Strip.
Together with Las Vegas-based design-led development firm, Blue Heron, and technology integrator Eagle Sentry, this smart living showcase, or Vegas Modern 001, is a 15,000-square-foot home, designed with the latest technology advances, all hidden to the eye.
Vegas Modern 001 incorporates Savant’s award-winning smart lighting system paired with tunable LED lighting and specification-grade fixtures from USAI Lighting. The optimal illumination for every scenario is achieved utilizing Savant’s Daylight Mode to synchronize lighting color and temperatures to match the natural light from the sun at any time-of-day.
To complement the natural light, every room also features Savant motorized shades, designed in partnership with JGeiger. The shades, along with Savant’s pro lighting control system and USAI Lighting fixtures combine to create an end-to-end lighting experience.
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 set a particular mood, enhancing entertainment to activate full-color lighting.
Vegas Modern 001 reportedly features the largest residential solar array in the region, a fully automated power panel, as well as Savant’s Racepoint microgrid technology. The Savant app tracks daily energy production as well as usage, with a full history log by load type. Savant energy solutions paired with the vast solar infrastructure can maintain operation of the entire home under normal conditions for up to eight hours; or nearly 24 hours if only essential devices are active.
Savant Energy’s microgrid works around the clock to optimize the consumption of power intelligently under all conditions, providing a comfortable, secure environment while maximizing efficiency and reducing energy costs.
For audio and video entertainment, Savant deployed 15 4K video sources distributed to 17 rooms. The audio system features 43 zones of high-resolution digital music powered by more than 19,000 watts of amplification, all fitted to the home without impeding décor.
