Clare Controls, a provider of configurable and intuitive automated systems for residential and commercial applications, is proud to announce its flagship product, ClareHome, has been selected by Avalanche Electric as the home automation system for its Street of Dreams luxury home.


The Street of Dreams is the most popular luxury lifestyle and housing showcase in North America, allowing guests to get up close and personal with the very latest home furnishings, design features and cutting-edge new products in a collection of homes.

Canterra Custom Homes, a Canadian builder, took part in the Spring, 2012 Street of Dreams, located in Calgary at Willow Creek at Bearspaw. Supporting Canterra Custom Homes, Avalanche Electric stepped in to handle the electrical work and the set up of the audio/video equipment, including the automation system and the home theater.

When it came time to choose a home automation system for the house, Kent Mountenay, president of Avalanche Electric, chose Clare Controls' ClareHome, the first home automation system managed from the cloud and run on a Mac. Striving to go beyond the new set of usability expectations that have emerged in the last few years, ClareHome redefines and simplifies the user experience through features like its fully customizable user interface.

"We wanted a system that was less complicated and easier to use for the consumer," Mountenay said. "That was the biggest factor we were looking for."

In addition to its simplicity for the user, ClareHome proved to be a system that could be easily installed by any integrator.

"Our lead tech had no experience with ClareHome whatsoever beforehand," said Mountenay. "He hadn't even seen a demo of it, but, even with no prior experience, it was very simple to install. The customer service with Clare Controls has been great. Any problems he had, they helped him with immediately. To have my tech, who's never even held a piece of that technology, install it so easily… We've been very impressed."

Mountenay wants to continue to implement ClareHome in the houses his team works on and plans to use it very soon in another project with custom builder Karoleena Homes.
