Continuing to strengthen its wireless security and smart home platform, Clare Controls has added a series of integrations with third-party manufacturers that connect dozens of smart devices, thermostats, and lighting solutions to the ClareOne panel.
According to Clint Choate, senior director of SnapAV’s security market, ClareOne provides dealers with the versatility they need to expand their businesses in today’s environment. “Many security and automation platforms have closed walls,” he said. “ClareOne continues to innovate by giving dealers, builders, and homeowners what they want: the flexibility to incorporate popular products and services into their professional systems. This platform continues to support dealers by providing broad device integration with brands that end-users know and trust.”
New integrations for smart devices include Google Assistant, Google Home, and Google Mini; Honeywell Z-Wave Plug-in Dimmers, Z-Wave Lighting, Smart Switches, Thermostats, Fan Controls, Outlets, and Outdoor smart switches; Leviton Z-Wave Plug-in Dimmers, In-wall Switchers, and Receptacles; and Deako Lighting
New integrations for thermostats include Honeywell Home (Resideo); American Standard; Trane; and Nortek Go Control
The new integration for water valves is for Fortrezz.
According to Brett Price, CEO and president of Clare Controls, the platform’s flexibility strengthens the dealer-customer relationship. “ClareOne is unique in that it gives the dealer a role that was never before possible with DIY devices,” he said. “This model allows homeowners to add their own devices through the app while relying on dealers to support any additional needs remotely without ever rolling a truck for a needless service call. ClareOne is paving the way to sell RMR with professional monitoring support and build a ‘sticky’ relationship.”
The new integrations also provide more opportunities for dealers to sell to the builder channel. “Builders want flexibility for their buyers,” said Kim-Anthony Parker, SnapAV VP of commercial programs – builder channel. “They don’t want to be limited by closed platforms. ClareOne’s ability to provide seamless automation and security, connect with popular third-party devices, and scale up with Control4 integration makes it a winning choice for dealers to enter the builder market.”
Distributed exclusively by SnapAV, ClareOne unifies smart wireless security and smart home control, with a full line of encrypted security sensors and smart home integrations. FusionPro, the back-end new management platform, provides a single-point solution to enhance dealer productivity, supporting everything from account setup, panel onboarding, and central station selection through remote diagnostics and troubleshooting, with a native OvrC integration enabling advanced remote management.
