Home automation company joins forces with noted Edmonton integrator to introduce innovative program to area professionals
SARASOTA, Fla. May 20, 2013 – Clare Controls, a provider of easily configured, deployed and maintained home automation systems, announced today that it would co-host a residential technology summit with Integrated Home Systems (IHS) of Edmonton, AB. The summit, to be held on May 22, 2013, will show a select group of leading builders, developers and architects how they can capitalize on the rising demand for automation in new homes.
Clare founder and CEO Brett Price will introduce the ClareHome Builder’s Program to the invitation-only group. Those who elect to participate in the Program will team with IHS, Clare’s local partner, to deliver luxury automation system performance to mainstream homeowners in affordable packages. Builders place a ClareHome core system (including controller) in each of their new homes. Customers configure their own solutions in the design center, picking from among pre-engineered packages and upgrades. These are complete home automation solutions, running popular applications like multi-zone audio, lighting/shades, security/access control/video surveillance, energy, water/freeze detection and more.
“In the past,” stated Price, so-called ‘deals’ on managed home control services offered builders plenty of risk but little opportunity. We provide a well-developed, end-to-end program complete with sales, marketing and ongoing technical support, based on first-hand knowledge of a builder’s business requirements and preferences. Participating builders get a great answer to their customer’s requests for technology, and they earn reputations as their areas’ leading providers of the “tech-smart” homes. And last but certainly not least,” he added, “they earn a profit on every sale.”
The Edmonton summit is the latest in Clare’s ongoing initiative to help pair its regional partners with forward-thinking builders throughout North America. IHS has an established reputation as a leading resource for its area’s homebuilders, specializing in the installation of structured wiring, security, A/V, home theater and home automation solutions.
“Builder interest in home automation is certainly nothing new…we’ve been designing and installing custom systems for their customers for many years,” noted John Stubbington, President of Integrated Home Systems. “The big change we’re seeing now is the opportunity the Clare system represents for our builder partners to offer powerful, easy to use systems, at prices that make home automation a very real consideration for nearly all of their customers.”
