Savant Previews
Dynamic ColorTunable
Downlights
At the International Builders' Show
(IBS), Savant extended its Cync lighting
intelligence into color-controllable wafer
fixtures ideal for the builder channel.
By Arlen Schweiger
SAVANT HAS BEEN stretching
its scope in smart home
lighting in recent years with
its acquisition of GE Lighting
and collaboration with USAI
Lighting, implementation of
Daylight Mode, new Ascend
keypads and even lighted
mirrors with partner Robern.
At the recent International
Builders' Show in Orlando,
Fla., the company was
excited to preview new smart
low-profile downlights with
built-in color tunability.
Angela Larson, senior vice
president, customer operations
at Savant, highlighted
the intelligent, wafer downlights
in the company's
Orange County Convention
Center booth as the next
step in the progression of
the GE Lighting acquisition
impact.
Savant was showing the
lineup, which is now known
by the Cync branding and
is ideal for builders and
integrator partners seeking
to bring intelligence, circadian
wellness aspects and colorful
flair to their customers -
with affordability and ease of
installation in mind.
" The entire [smart lighting
Savant's entry-level Cync
lighting fixtures are " canless "
and can be simply
clamped to the drywall.
ecosystem] is configured
on the tablet, so there is no
proprietary software configuration
tools and one of the
cool things about it is you can
actually install everything and
the homeowner could actually
come and commission it
themselves, " she says of Cync
smart lighting. " Depending on
your service level, you could
have the electrician install it
and leave it alone. "

At the International Builders Show, Savant's Angie Larson
demo'ed why Cync lighting is ideal for homebuilders.
Larson described the Cync
line in the booth as more of
an entry-level solution for
the builder community but
a robust one featuring smart
light switches, smart bulbs,
lighting strips, plus cameras,
thermostats and plugs.
" But the most important
thing ... we're moving beyond
the bulb into the fixture
space. Cync fixtures - and
they have the color tunability
of the light bulb but we've
moved it into the fixture, "
Larson enthuses of the new
low-profile downlights. " From
a builder perspective, that
means they can upgrade great
rooms, they can upgrade
master baths, all sorts of
spaces and now have dynamic
lighting. "
The Savant App enables
control of white tunability,
color temperature, saturation
and more. Furthermore, she
adds that the canless fixture
is a " completely simple retrofittable
fixture " that can pop
into the ceiling and clamp to
the drywall.
The smart wafer downlights
aren't meant to compete with
loftier fixtures in the luxury
homebuilder market, but represent
a solution that suitably
and intelligently complements
the Cync ecosystem. She says
they were anticipated to carry
an MSRP starting at around
$60 with a target launch for
dealers this spring.
It's an enticing opportunity
for builders and integrators to
collaborate on the circadian
lighting discussion with
homebuyers and the ease
with which their dwellings
can incorporate the human-centric
lighting pillar of
wellness.
" We're making that builder-grade
fixture really smart, "
Larson says. " It's super easy
to install, it's a lot of fun to
show the builders here with
the demonstration. They're
going to install fixtures
anyway, so it's a really great
option for them to say, 'Hey
let's upgrade a space or two
to have this kind of dynamic
functionality. "
