Savant home automation app

Savant Systems has announced the development of an iPhone or iPod touch app that will allow remote control over its ROSIE home automation system. The software offers the same graphic user interface found in the home controls. The user can 'pinch' to zoom in or out and double tap on elements to bring them into the foreground. Full control over the Savant home systems is enabled with the mobile app, including home theater, climate controls, security systems, lighting, or anything on the system depending on the user's setup. The Savant iPhone/iPod touch app will be available on iTunes for $200.

    Think before you post?

    How would it be beneficial to have lower price if the total addressable market for the app is only for people who have already invested money in the home controllers?

    I can understand selling other apps for less to stimulate additional sales but this app has a limited market to begin with give the prerequisites.

    I'm guessing that you are not in the target market to begin with if you are worried about 200 bucks.
