Anyone in here that's had some experience with the Savant Pro? Is it a good alternative to the NEEO?
Next Startup with a universal remote
It depends on whether you really need buttons or even can only get along with a display to control devices. If you don't need buttons you can also use an iPhone or Android Phone as a universal remote control. I personally use Symcon in combination with Mediola NEO to create a remote interface for controlling all my devices with a tablet and an iPhone. So you can create the remote interface yourself without necessarily relying on a dealer or integrator for everything.
As many of you know my posts here, i will bring up an answere here:
Sadly the NEEO is a pain when it comes to software, that it is currently working is okish (at least it doesn't stop doing bad working) i was confident about the Hardware allways. Sadly the Software never catch up... Rest is History now...
I currently "joined" the Yio Remote from Marton the main key from my side here is:
It will be open source, so many can make changes, it is based on reliable Hardware and Software is a key that can be worked on from many users (since open source)
If some are interested he opened a Community over here:
The backpoint is: the Sourcing of the Parts needs money, so the price for a Kit is something around 300$ currently, but i see the same potential as i one saw in NEEO. Thats my current Bet. If you would like to get more Information, you are welcome to join the community, the Discord channel or help by Translating the UI to languages (yes this will work from the beginning! ;-) )
Also the remote rely on a Backend System like Home Assistant (the SmartHome System Marton uses). Integration for other Systems are planned.
Currently Marton build the UI and the Integrations all by himself, so he knows best and is also happy to answere questions. There are also other Users that join him allready from here.
