Pittsburgh, PA - April 13, 2015 at 9:00am EST - The PowerHouse Alliance announced today the addition of Clare Controls to the organization's line card. PowerHouse member distributors are pleased to offer full support for the Clare Controls line-up to dealers nationwide. Training has begun for PowerHouse personnel on the Clare products they will carry immediately, including media distribution, Class D amplifiers, IP CCTV solutions and more. PowerHouse will offer Clare automation later this year, starting in areas where the ClareHome Builder Program is most active, and only to qualified dealers.

"The addition of Clare Controls to our polished roster of vendor partners is a key opportunity for our distributor members, and their dealers, who are looking for efficient, high-performance products, covering a range of control, A/V and surveillance needs," said Dennis Holzer, Executive Director for PowerHouse Alliance.

As a premier manufacturer of intelligent automation solutions, Clare Controls offers a truly service-oriented approach to residential and commercial automation. The brand's flagship product, ClareHome, is the first automation solution managed from the cloud, allowing integrators to configure, deploy, and maintain projects remotely, while improving customer support and eliminating the need for many costly truck rolls. Coupled with first-class media distribution products and Class D stackable amplifiers featuring ICEpower technology, as well as a wide selection of IP CCTV cameras, plug-and-play NVRs and surveillance accessories, Clare Controls' diverse product line is designed specifically to make a difference in the world of system integration.

"Our products were created by integrators for integrators, based on our first-hand knowledge of the challenges they face on a job-by-job basis," said Brett Price, President of Clare Controls. "Partnering with PowerHouse represents an opportunity to put these products in front of a huge new audience of forward-thinking home technology installers -- exactly the professionals they were designed to serve."
