The Clare Controls ClareVue Lighting line is designed for easy customization across all lighting types, including dimmable LED/CFL, incandescent, halogen, magnetic low-voltage, and electronic low-voltage loads.
ClareVue Lighting brings high-value “smart” technologies to mainstream homes. The line includes master and accessory dimmers and switches, plus receptacles and programmable keypads that network together. The components are certified to integrate seamlessly into the company’s ClareHome automation solution for simple, secure operation, from home or away.
With the ClareVue Lighting Wizard built into the latest release of Clare’s Fusion Configuration Tool, integrators will find it simple to create sophisticated lighting applications. Installation is reduced to a three-step “add–configure–deploy” process, with built-in best practices helping to ensure that all required parameters are entered, and that they are correct.
“The wizard makes installing ClareVue a breeze,” said Michael Kennedy, custom AV programmer for HomePro Tech in Houston, Texas. “It walks you through every step, so even a novice programmer can easily add and remove light switches, pair accessory switches with their master switches, and even program keypads.”
Advanced features include reliable synchronized feedback mechanisms that reflect lighting conditions instantly via LEDs in both master and accessory components, and in the Clare user interface.The system is based on Z-Wave mesh networking, the leading wireless automation technology. ClareVue Lighting does not require special house wiring, and since Z-Wave technology is built into Clare’s CLIQ hosts, a separate lighting controller is not required.
"The convenience of lighting controls is no longer for just the wealthy,” said Jeff Zemanek, vice president of sales. “With ClareVue Lighting, we have succeeded in hitting a previously unattainable price point, at about half the cost of competing luxury systems. A low-cost, reliable system like this, one that is easy to install and program, will finally allow our partners to make lighting control a standard in all homes."
