Snap One Acquires Clare Controls
Snap One announced the acquisition of Clare Controls, maker of the ClareOne smart home and security systems. This is a big deal, obviously, as SnapOne already owns Control4.
Since Snap One entered an exclusive distribution partnership with Clare Controls in 2019, the ClareOne system has been providing a hybrid smart home and security solution for entry- to mid-level applications.
Clare Controls also offers peripherals such as the new ClareVision line of security cameras that deliver features such as motion detection and Starlight software for low light enhancement. In addition, ClareOne has a monthly fee structure that lets Snap One Partners differentiate their service with a recurring monthly revenue model, starting with fee-free smart home features and self- or professional-monitoring tiers.
The ClareOne panel is a slim all-in-one panel that is ETL listed and provides a unified user experience for on-site and remote access to security, surveillance and smart home capabilities and operations. Additionally, Clare Controls offers a lineup of smart surveillance solutions that integrate with the ClareOne system that can also be installed as a stand-alone surveillance system.
