The Savant Remote is a high-end smart controller that's part color touch screen and part traditional buttons. This remote lets you switch easily between devices, and it learns your favorite channels, which appear on the top display. You can set scenes that initiate multiple functions, such as dimming the lights, and turning on the TV and the home theater system. The remote stores individual profiles so everyone in your family essentially has their own remote. Use voice control by press the microphone button and giving a command. “Good Night” turns everything off. “Food Network” turns on the cooking channel. The starter pack includes a host and a blaster.

Voice control is the real killer feature in these remotes. Hold down the voice command button and say “Watch ESPN” and the macro is executed to activate the system and turn to ESPN. Or "Dim the living room lights" or "Listen to Classic Rock in the Den."
