Clare Controls has appointed industry veteran Lance Dean to its Board of Advisors.
In this new role, Dean will consult with the Clare leadership team on product and category initiatives, including the company’s new ClareOne Wireless Security and Smart Home Panel and security sensor line.
Dean brings decades of security and smart home sales and tech experience. He began his career with Honeywell, where he rose through the ranks to manager, national accounts. From there, he co-founded 2GIG Technologies, whose Go!Control panel helped revolutionise the industry. After selling 2GIG to Nortek in 2016, he became an advisor to other companies including Stanley Security and 3G-to-4G technology connector Cellbounce.
“There is no doubt in my mind that ClareOne is going to be a game changer,” said Dean. “As a control panel for home security and smart home functionality and flexibility, it is a huge leap forward. Behind it is a business plan to unify and simplify for all parties — for the homeowner first, but also for the dealer, the builder, and the monitoring company. ClareOne enables multiple monitoring options at very competitive price points.”
“We are excited to be able to leverage Lance’s considerable experience and expertise to assist our strategy and product roadmap,” commented Clare president and CEO, Brett Price. “He knows the industry from all perspectives, from manufacturing and software to all the intangibles that are essential to help security dealers drive more business.”
“The speed with which technology changes and businesses have to react means that you have to be able to always anticipate what’s next in order to meet consumer expectations in the digital, interconnected, and mobile world we all now live in,” added Dean. “I am truly excited to be part of where ClareOne takes the industry in the next few years.”
