CHARLOTTE, N.C. – June 28, 2022 -- Hayward Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HAYW) (“Hayward”) today announced that OmniLogic control will now be available on Savant Home smart systems, allowing users to seamlessly manage their pool, spa or other devices connected to Omni® from a Pro Remote or similar control device.

OmniLogic, Hayward's cloud-based automation platform, has long set the industry standard for control and management—offering streamlined control from the top-rated mobile app, Apple Watch® and most voice-enabled smart devices (via Amazon® Alexa® and Google Assistant®).

Savant Home, a product of Savant Systems, Inc., offers customers the most diverse portfolio of DIY and professionally installed smart products across a network of authorized integrators. Available at thousands of leading retail stores, Savant Home provides users with total control over their home theater, speakers, smart lighting, climate control, security and more.

The OmniLogic integration with Savant Home devices enables users to extend their home automation capabilities into the backyard, providing a new dimension of smart control for many Hayward and Savant users alike. Notably, it will allow pool owners to set water temperature and pump speeds, change lighting colors/themes, manage water chemistry and much more—directly from Savant control devices.

“The Omni platform is all about simplicity,” said Matt Kimball, Vice President of Marketing at Hayward. “At Hayward, we want to provide consumers with intuitive, easy-to-use automation solutions. Savant is a great partner who has mastered the art of refined simplicity without compromising power or performance.”
