Certified IP Drivers for Popular Sony A/V Products Enable Faster and Easier ClareHome Integration
Dallas, TX October 15, 2015 — Clare Controls, provider of simple-to-install, maintain, and use home automation solutions that give homeowners far-reaching control over their own automation experiences, is working with Sony Electronics to develop drivers that efficiently integrate their most popular audio/video products seamlessly into ClareHome automation projects.
As a Sony integration partner, Clare is providing certified drivers for all of Sony’s 2013 and newer IP-enabled components, including Bravia 4K Ultra HD Televisions, ES Receivers, and ES Home Theater Projectors. Programmers working in Clare’s Cloud-based Fusion Configuration Tool can integrate these Sony products in their projects quickly and easily. IP-based control completely eliminates the need for IR emitters, receivers, and third-party conversion devices, saving integrators time and money, while improving system performance and reliability.
“Sony Electronics’ participation in the development of this driver set has been invaluable,” said Jim Hanna, Clare’s VP of Engineering. “We’re now able to assure integrators and homeowners that Sony products will integrate smoothly and seamlessly into their projects, yielding highly efficient implementations of all sizes and complexities.”
“Sony is fully engaged in the smart home market and we welcome the opportunity to collaborate with Clare Controls on drivers that enable integrators to effortlessly integrate its home automation solution with our 4K Ultra HD displays, receivers, and home theater projectors,” said Frank Sterns, VP AV Specialty/Custom Integration at Sony Electronics. “Our products, combined with the power and flexibility of the Clare Controls automation system, provide integrators with a proven solution to offer customers, while creating a spectacular entertainment experience for homeowners.”
The new Sony drivers continue Clare’s ongoing commitment to maximizing integrator efficiency. Clare supports its dealers’ ability to offer the widest possible range of options, with an expanding library that contains drivers for more than 1,800 devices.
