With the number of Internet-connected things installed by 2020 expected to reach 50 billion, Clare Controls is embracing the smart home category and expanding its efforts to provide an open platform with unparalleled flexibility. Clare is collaborating with three leading manufacturers – Honeywell, Yale, and Linear – creating native integration and resale opportunities for a selection of products providing integrators with a one-stop shop to implement these products into installed ClareHome systems.
“Homeowners do not want to be limited to using one brand for all of their lifestyle needs,” said Brett Price, Clare Controls, CEO. “They want to easily control trusted brand name products to regulate temperature, secure entry points to their homes, and simplify entertainment systems. Enabling communication between different brands was step one, now installers can simply purchase the most popular third party SKUs, along with their control hub, directly from Clare to give their customers what they want.”
The following products are now available to Clare authorized integrators and partners for resale:
