Savant Acquires LiteTouch

Press Release

February 22, 2012

Savant Systems LLC, having delivered the first complete Apple-based home automation and commercial control system, has acquired LiteTouch, Inc. of Salt Lake City, Utah, a highly respected industry pioneer in the residential and commercial lighting control marketplace since the late 1970s. The acquisition provides Savant with a widely recognized lighting control platform as well as a broad range of best-in class keypad offerings to complement the company's revolutionary iOS user interface solutions for residential and commercial control applications.

"The acquisition of LiteTouch brings to Savant a comprehensive lighting control system including a broad range of aesthetically pleasing keypad solutions from a respected and recognized supplier," explained Savant CEO Robert Madonna. The LiteTouch keypads will fully support a wide array of controlled devices including third party lighting systems as part of Savant's ecosystem of advanced automation. “Our sales channel has been asking for a lineup of lighting control and integrated keypad products from Savant that operate in concert with Apple iOS devices to manage and control a vast array of connected home and commercial technologies,” Madonna added.

“LiteTouch is proud to join the Savant Family,” said Angie Larson, vice president of Sales & Marketing for LiteTouch. “Savant's acquisition of LiteTouch creates unique opportunities for industry innovation, design collaboration and product development.” Madonna said, “By leveraging LiteTouch's three decades of lighting control success coupled with Savant's award-winning TrueImage interface, users will now have access to the most powerful automation, lighting and media control platform.”

Savant's automation and control solutions will gain more visibility within the electrical specifier/builder community due to the powerful brand recognition of LiteTouch in this market segment. Savant's new lighting control group will continue to operate out of the Salt Lake City area.
