Clare Controls Names David Rice Regional Sales Manager

Rice will represent Clare Controls in Chicago and throughout the Midwest

SARASOTA, FL -- August 19, 2013 - Clare Controls, provider of easily configured, deployed and maintained home automation systems, has announced the appointment of David Rice to the position of Regional Sales Manager based in Chicago.

In his role as Regional Sales Manager, Rice will build and support the Clare Controls dealer network around Midwest, including rapidly growing markets in the Chicago area.

Rice has more than 25 years of sales experience across the CEDIA, data communications and internet access industries. Most recently, he worked with Core Brands, managing rep agencies and dealers across the United States and Canada. David's strong technical skills earned him additional responsibilities as a technical trainer for products such as ELANg! and BlueBOLT, proving himself as an invaluable resource for reps and dealers in need of system design consultation. Previously, he worked with Kaleidescape and Lutron as an Account Manager and Sr. Sales Rep, respectively.

"I am excited to be working with Brett Price and the Clare Controls team," Rice said. "In my experience, home automation systems at all levels of sophistication are traditionally designed around the house, not the user...much less the dealer. Clare Controls is different. Clare's App couples a simple personalized interface configured by the user with cloud-based configuration and silent update tools that improve dealer efficiency. The result is a home automation system that is easy to sell, deploy and maintain -- a unique solution in the custom electronics industry. I am confident that Clare will have strong appeal to homeowners, dealers and residential builders at all levels."

Integrators in Chicago, and around the Midwest, can learn more about ClareHome by contacting David by email at or by phone at 312-505-2686.
