Tech Rack Installation by AV Works Inc.When asked why AV Works chose Clare as their smart home solution, Chris Underschultz responded, “We chose Clare for the scalability and ease of use of the product, intuitive App, cloud-based programming, and their support model. We can offer products to fit any budget, from entry level to custom homes. We really like the consistency and ease of use with the ClareHome App. We used to be handcuffed with intense programming and service calls with other automation systems.”

As to how their business has been impacted by Clare, “We have been able to provide a more reliable and stable product to our clients, with remote programming and support, we have reduced the amount of van rolls and service call outs – saving us money”, said Underschultz. “Clare’s technical support team has been top-notch, always there to help, including their willingness to assist us on developing new drivers to integrate various products.”

“I’ve worked with Chris and his team for a long time”, says Hansen. “If there is anyone in the Alberta, CA area or abroad that can get the job done, it’s AV Works”. Hansen applauds their dedication to providing a quality service, “There’s a reason they keep winning at CEDIA. These guys are passionate and good at what they do - like really good.”
