Home automation company Clare Controls will introduce a slate of new products, tools, and services at the 2015 CEDIA Expo in Dallas this week. Among the offerings is the new CLIQ.mini automation controller, a four-zone amp.440+, expanded product integration, and new customer support tools including a new ClareHome app, the myclarehome.com customer portal, and a dedicated customer support line.
All of these products and services will be on display at the Clare Controls booth (#1512) in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.
“With deep roots in the custom installation business as an installer, we understand the challenges of the integrator,” said Brett Price, Clare Controls CEO. “We’ve created products, services, and resources that provide integrators with avenues to grow their businesses. To help homeowners who are interacting more with technology, we are empowering them to take unprecedented control of their home automation system and provide support every step of the way.”
On the CLIQ.mini automation controller:
Clare brings the sophistication and quality of high-end systems to a wider base of mainstream customers with the introduction of the CLIQ.mini automation controller, which allows homeowners to control lighting, garage doors, door locks, thermostats, CCTV cameras, and other applications. It leverages the same Cloud-based platform as the award-winning family of CLIQ controllers for unparalleled flexibility, scalability, and efficiency.
On the amp.440+:
The Clare amp.440+ is designed to make the installation of multi-room audio applications quicker, easier, more reliable, and less expensive. This all-inclusive audio deck features a built-in matrix switcher and audio receiver, delivers high-performance quality sound, and wireless streaming capabilities. The Clare amp.440+ incorporates cool running ICEpower Class D amplification technology, providing four zones (8 channels x 40 watts) of studio-quality audio output.
And on the product integration:
Clare prides itself on collaborating with top technology brands, proven by the addition of Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) partners, Sony and Sonos. Clare is delivering more than a module for Sonos products and Sony TVs, receivers, and home theater projectors. Integrators can now benefit from native integration support for unparalleled ease of implementation and continued hands-off reliability. Amazon Echo and Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostats join the extensive library of Clare drivers for more than 1,800 devices, continuing the company’s commitment to maximize integrator efficiency. Affirming this, Clare Controls is offering its dealers a branded Honeywell VisionPRO 8000 for resale to their customers.
