For Garrett-Walker Homes, a prominent builder in Arizona, a new home should provide friendly floor plans, value, and quality construction. The builder is accomplishing this by utilizing local craftsman and key manufacturer partners to create high caliber homes. To provide the smart home technology in the Del Rio Ranch community in Avondale, AZ, Garrett-Walker Homes has turned to Clare Controls to install a range of products in 130 homes as part of its standard base package.
To help builders take control of the home technology sales process and create more predictable outcomes, Clare Controls created a home technology kiosk for builders that prompts the design center staff through the lifestyle benefits of smart home technology. The Smart Home Display Center is an interactive demo kiosk that provides an all-in-one sales tool for smart home technology upgrades by focusing on benefit sets instead of individual products. The kiosk eliminates the large investment previously required for smart home product installation, maintenance, and sales training in show homes. The builder kiosk is on display at the Clare Controls booth #C2766 during the NAHB International Builders' Show this week at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Michael Wolf for Forbes: If you’re like me, remembering how different using a mobile phone was back in 2006 is getting increasingly difficult. That’s because today we live in a world so completely transformed by the iPhone, it seems as if it’s always been that way. But looking back, things were indeed very different. If you used a smartphone at all back then (something the vast majority of consumers did not), chances are it was a Blackberry. If you tried to use the Internet on your phone, you might remember the “mobile Internet” experience, such as it was, was pretty horrible. Most consumers at the time still used basic feature phones, and industry analysts predicted that smartphone adoption would grow, but not at nearly the eye-popping rate we would soon see in the age of the iPhone. As we now know, the transformative nature of the iPhone quickly changed nearly every assumption we had about mobile phones and, as a result, had a ripple effect that resulted in nearly every company in mobile (and pretty much every industry) changing their own approach to the market. In many ways, I think the the Amazon Echo is an equally transformative product for the smart home. Whether it’s how early Echo owners are interacting with their device or its how Amazon itself is rewriting the rules of competition, the two products share a number of industry-disrupting similarities.
