McMillin Texas Homes Provides Automation by Clare Controls in San Antonio

Initiative the result of three-way partnership between builder, home automation manufacturer, and home technology manager.

SARASOTA, FL, December 2, 2014 --- McMillin Texas Homes, noted builder of about 70 "green" residences this year, announced that it will provide Clare Controls' ClareHome automation packages as standard amenities in three of its new San Antonio communities. The products will be available in Vanado Creek, The Ridge at Lookout Canyon, and the Cliffs at Cibolo. In addition to the well-documented end-user benefits of Clare's lifestyle applications, the systems' automation options will help support McMillin's smart energy management efforts.


The automation solutions for McMillin Texas are being delivered via partnership with Clare Controls, a manufacturer of high-performance automation solutions noted for offering scalable lifestyle automation solutions; and Builder Security Group (BSG), a provider of home technology management services. Each McMillin Texas home will incorporate a CLIQ controller, the "brain" of the automation solution, to host scalable applications. Homeowners can then select personalized packages to add benefits including safety and security, comfort and convenience, and entertainment to their homes. Of particular value to an increasing number of McMillin customers is the system's ability to support smart energy management practices. Toward that end, McMillin is including a controllable thermostat and automated lighting in their new San Antonio homes. These applications and others are unified under the control of a Clare's personalized interface on users' iPads, iPhones, and Android phones, and can be accessed securely from home or away.

"Having the right tools for the homeowner is what it takes to achieve sustainable energy efficiency in our homes," stated John Teeple, VP of Operations for McMillin Texas. "The easy-to-use Clare Controls automation solution guided our decision to include this technology as a standard in our new homes. We love the ClareHome app because it is familiar to our clients, easily controllable, and easily customizable to fit needs beyond just energy savings."
