Sarasota, FL. - April 5th, 2019 - In an exciting build-up to ISC West, 2019, Clare and NorthStar have announced a partnership bringing NorthStar’s affiliate program to all Clare security dealers. The program will offer dealers lucrative security funding options for Clare’s market-leading smart home and security platform, including Clare’s secure hub and all Clare encrypted intrusion sensors.

It was designed from the ground up to offer dealers options for generating additional RMR through subscription-based revenue streams.

“Clare is the only company uniquely positioned to help dealers easily transition to the security space and begin growing their recurring revenue streams.” said Brett Price, CEO and founder of Clare. “The Clare and NorthStar partnership will help dealers around the country navigate the complexities of bringing on smart home technology and security monitoring through a simple funding program that is tailored to all dealers.”
