Clare Controls Introduces the First Home Automation System Managed from the Cloud and Run on a Mac

ClareHome's cloud-based portal allows dealers to order, configure, deploy, monitor and service home automation systems

Clare Controls, a provider of configurable and intuitive home automation systems, has introduced ClareHome, the first home automation system managed from the cloud and run on a Mac. ClareHome enables professional dealers to easily and quickly configure, deploy, service and monitor systems from its cloud -based portal, eliminating the need for service calls for common reprogramming issues. Additionally, end -users may access the extensive library to access, and to create, and customize their own interfaces.


“Clare Controls was founded on two key principles: putting the user in control or the user experience and improving dealer efficiency,” said Brett Price, CEO and founder of Clare Controls. “The advanced technologies in our ClareHome system revolutionize and simplify the process of operating and altering the functions of a home automation system -for both dealers and end -users.”


ClareHome’s functionality is absolutely unique to the home automation industry. End -users not only control their homes through advanced technologies, including Apple iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches, but for the first time, are able to modify their own user experience within the system. No other home automation solution allows users to access new home controls from the cloud and make them functional within minutes -without a professional programmer or technician.


ClareHome delivers out -of -the -box application integration and control of third -party systems through its AppModules and associated device drivers. While the AppModules are robust enough to meet the demands of even the most discriminating user, ClareCloud provides feature -rich customization tools for dealers. These cloud -based configuration tools allow dealers to customize the behavior of AppModules and create custom scenes that reach across AppModules.


AppModules include:



  • Audio - Integrated with any in -home media, distributes throughout the home using event rules

  • Entertainment - Automatically build rules to run entertainment systems without programming

  • Security - Status summaries, remote capabilities and exception notifications

  • CCTV - An entire NVR application with embedded video analytics to intelligently detect motion

  • Lighting - Scheduling and lighting overview capabilities

  • Energy - Complete HVAC/energy management application


Leveraging cloud -based technologies, dealer efficiency is improved. System changes, if necessary, are simplified and completed in minutes. ClareHome’s cloud -based, secure dealer portal -ClareCloud -serves as the central intuitive dashboard where dealers can remotely configure, deploy, monitor and service all ClareHome automation systems. No other system allows you to manage home automation from the cloud.


ClareHome from Clare Controls will make its official debut at CEDIA EXPO 2011, held Sept. 7 -10 in Indianapolis, Ind. Attendees to the Clare Control booth (#4866) at CEDIA Expo will have the exclusive opportunity to demo ClareHome and meet with the executive team at Clare Controls.
