A control panel integrates all the functionality you need in a meeting into a single, streamlined interface. That way, you increase your meeting productivity by letting technology get out of the way.


Automation lets you combine all of the actions at the start of a meeting into a single button press. Simply press “On” and the lights come on, the display powers up and switches to the correct input and your meeting is ready to begin. A control panel lets you control all the devices during your meeting from an intuitive, user-friendly interface that becomes the center of your collaborative experience.


Control panels can be mounted outside conference rooms, letting you easily see room availability or even schedule the room right from the panel. Red/green availability LEDs right on the panel make it easy to find an open room. Now you can increase room utilization as well as your building ROI.


One of the first things someone will notice when coming into your facility is the device you use to control the technology in the room. A beautifully-designed control panel is sure to make the perfect first impression on your client.


AMX invented the world’s first touch panel dedicated to room automation in 1988 and has led control panel innovation ever since. Today, AMX control panels are used in the top corporate, government, and education spaces in the world. That’s why you can trust AMX to automate your environment, making it more effective and efficient.

Savant was founded in 2005 with the goal of providing the best experience in home automation. When we began to imagine what the ideal Savant Home would look like, the one common thread was comfort—the feeling that everything in your home is just how you like it.

And because everyone likes things a certain way, we set out to make our product as adaptable as possible. Technological advances became the means to an end, not the reason for our existence. It was the best decision we ever made. It’s what makes us unique.

Since then, people from around the world have come to Savant in search of a home tailored just for them, and the one thing we hear from all of them is that once you live in a Savant Home, you’ll never want to live anywhere else.
