SAVANT® Adds Y-cam to Partners in Excellence Cooperative Program

Savant Systems LLC, having delivered the first Apple®-based home automation and commercial control system, has announced the addition of Y-cam to their PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE cooperative program.

Savant’s PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE initiative has been targeted to achieve global compatibility between Savant’s control systems and a diverse group of best-in-class manufacturers from the audio, video, lighting control, HVAC, and security industries, as well as devices and subsystems from many related markets.

Founded in 2005, Y-cam is a leading provider of affordable and easy-to-use remote monitoring products for residential and small business applications. Y-cam has generated a following within the Mac community for delivering a standalone camera that fully supports MAC functionality and is capable of high infrared night visibility. Y-cam is intent upon establishing a leading position within the tech-savvy community by continuing to develop and launch innovative products relevant to the company’s core vision and purpose. Y-cam will continue to enhance its position as a premium yet affordable supplier. “Joining Savant’s Partner’s in Excellence program is a common sense initiative—we both provide solutions for the same customer base,” commented Simon Carr, Commercial Director at Y-cam. “As a result of the Partners in Excellence program, we will be able to provide a better security component to the home automation marketplace,” Carr added. Y-cam devices are aesthetically designed to be modern in appearance and to maintain proper synergy in an upscale home environment.

Participation in Savant’s PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE cooperative program will facilitate the seamless integration of Y-cam’s devices within the Savant system environment. “Savant is very pleased to have Y-cam join our PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE program,” stated Savant’s Director of Business Development Bob Ross. “Compatibility with key products helps integrators with efficiency and reliability in the field—that is the broad goal of the PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE program,” Ross added.

The core of Savant’s technology is an open programmable platform built upon the Mac OS X operating system supporting various communication protocols and offering high speed A/V switching, scaling and processing.

Savant’s PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE program will open new doors for participating manufacturers seeking to expand their business in a rapidly growing industry.
