The world of security installs is rapidly changing with the introduction of smart-home products, disruptive recurring revenue models, and increasingly higher consumer expectations. Integrators have more to stay on top of than ever before in order to remain relevant and profitable. In this evolving landscape, it’s crucial that dealers choose reliable, field-tested products that are supported by an ironclad customer support team.
Professional security integrators consistently rank SnapAV as the best manufacturer and distributor in the industry. With products like OvrC, a cloud-based remote management system, SnapAV is changing the way dealers do business by eliminating unnecessary service calls and creating a reliable method to generate recurring revenue. OvrC enhances already integrator-friendly products like WattBox and Araknis by providing the ability to remotely reboot unresponsive devices. Gone are the days of driving to a customer’s home, only to discover that all that was needed was a simple reboot.
Now that SnapAV has formed a strategic alliance with Clare, dealers will be able to leverage the service-call eliminating power of OvrC into more installs than ever before. Clare’s suite of smart-home automation and security products increase convenience, help conserve energy, integrate entertainment, provide security, and will soon work with OvrC. Together, SnapAV and Clare are empowering security integrators by giving them access to a unique product portfolio with a complete IoT solution.
The foundation of a secure smart-home install with SnapAV and Clare begins with the Clare CLIQ.mini. This powerful, low-cost smart-home control hub supports hundreds of the most popular products from today’s top manufacturers. The CLIQ.mini supports lighting, security integration, door locks, garage doors, thermostats, video surveillance, multi-room audio, video entertainment sensors, as well as a wide range of Z-Wave and Z-Wave Plus devices. All of these devices are self-discovered and compiled into the Clare app that is configured by the end-user, and the automation services and software required to set up the app are free to SnapAV dealers.
Pairing the CLIQ.mini with the Clare Security Panel allows you to expand smart-home security even further by offering centralized control of a client’s monitoring devices, like smoke, carbon monoxide, flood/water, window/door, and glass break sound sensors. For added peace-of-mind to clients, Clare’s Security Panel provides alarm reporting services to over 80 central station monitoring centers with optional LTE cellular network alarm reporting. The Clare CLIQ.mini and the Security Panel are for sale individually, or as a package with free interactive services.
Together, SnapAV and Clare offer whole-property solutions for smart-home and security installs. Simplify your daily operations by working with a company who understands that while the life of a security integrator can be tough, doing business with your suppliers shouldn’t be.
