Clare Controls Has Automation that CLIQs

Clare Controls motto for CLIQ is “zero wires, zero config, zero headaches” meaning that it should offer both users and installers a better experience. The new module represents a new, lower price point for the company’s cloud based automation solutions.

In larger projects, the host can be connected to the CLIQ.connect, adding additional infra-red, RS-232 and digital connections. The two modules snap together and connect/communicate using the ClareBus which eliminates the need for any external wiring between components, making for a cleaner, faster and more foolproof install. The ClareBus connector passes power, data, audio and control between the two modules, with installation as simple as clicking the modules together. Projects are configured in the cloud and then securely pushed down to the CLIQ in the home without any network ports being opened, which results in a robust and secure platform.

Clare Controls also demonstrated the company’s new Android app, which is added to its family of iOS control solutions. The Android app features all of the customization - including the ability to let user customize the look of their control GUI - of the iOS apps.

Clare also demonstrated a new slate of IP cameras and network DVR called ClareVision that offer native HTTP streaming for easy mobile viewing
