Revolutionary product gives users unprecedented control over home automation interface
Demo mode is supported immediately; will run live on ClareHome v2.0, available in December.
SARASOTA, Fla. October 30, 2012 – Clare Controls, a provider of configurable and intuitive automated systems for residential and commercial applications, announced today that its Clare Controls App for iPad and iPhone is now available as a free download from the iTunes® App Store.
Clare Controls is the provider of ClareHome, an award-winning home automation product that a growing number of homeowners are incorporating into their homes for convenience, comfort, security and entertainment. ClareHome provides simple, integrated control of lighting, shades, CCTV, multi-room audio, thermostats and more–all with a simple touch.
Traditionally, home automation interface has been accomplished on branded touch panels running proprietary, high-maintenance code. Expensive to purchase and own, these systems are operated via a room navigation metaphor (i.e., “click on room X, perform action Y”) that, while popular, simply doesn’t reflect the way people normally think.
From its inception, Clare has sought to improve upon these costly and counterintuitive conventions, allowing ClareHome users to interact with interfaces that they design themselves, running on cost-effective, familiar devices like iPads and iPhones. By putting “People Over Places,” the new Clare Controls App brings an unprecedented level of simplicity and control to home automation, inviting customers to personalize a ClareHome iPad or iPhone interface based on their favorite things to do–and not the room they happen to be in. The Clare Controls App presents user with a blank dashboard (called a Control Space) that they populate and manage without requiring outside assistance.
The award-winning App eliminates the recurring overhead (in time and money) that integrators traditionally invest in configuring the user interface, deploying services on a room-by-room basis. Instead, they just deploy all services to a Base Page that their customers access to create and manage their personalized UIs.
The free Clare Controls App also includes a built-in Demo Mode that integrators and homeowners can use to familiarize themselves with this game-changing advancement–without the need to be connected to a ClareHome System. Within moments of launching the demonstration, users can create and modify personal Control Spaces. A tutorial video (also linked in the app) may be viewed on the company’s website at http://www.clarecontrols.com/app-tutorials/.
