CLIQ.lite module further strengthens company's stake in the exploding mainstream market
SARASOTA, Fla. July 9, 2014 - Heralded as "the shape of things to come," in mainstream automation, initial deliveries of Clare Controls groundbreaking CLIQ.host controller and the accompanying CLIQ.connect expansion module take on an important new dimension with the simultaneous release of the CLIQ.lite controller.
The CLIQ.lite module supports scaled versions of all of Clare's most popular lifestyle applications, including lighting, security integration, climate, and IP CCTV, as well as the multi-room audio and integrated video entertainment capabilities that separate real automation from DIY kits and telco/cableco add-ons.
The CLIQ.lite module ships in exactly the same hardware configuration as the full-featured CLIQ.host, but at half the price. Limitations on the number of devices a CLIQ.lite host can control are unlocked via a software license purchased separately by Clare dealers, endowing the CLIQ.lite controller with the CLIQ.host's full capacity. Further expansion is possible through the addition of up to three new CLIQ.connect modules, each of which essentially doubles the CLIQ.host's inbuilt I/O.
With the CLIQ.lite module providing an even more accessible entry point than the CLIQ.host, the CLIQ family now gives Clare's channel partners an absolutely unprecedented level of freedom to offer mainstream customers affordable luxury-level automation packages, with simple, documented growth paths as their needs evolve, and as new applications become available.
