Sarasota, FL, February 8, 2016 – Arizona’s largest family-owned and operated home builders, Fulton Homes understands that their customers are getting younger and more tech savvy. Millennial customers expect their homes to be smarter without becoming complicated. Fulton spent two and a half years researching companies, demonstrating products, and meeting with smart home manufacturers to find a solution that fits their new millennial customers’ lifestyles and doesn’t intimidate or alienate customers that aren’t as tech savvy. Fulton Homes consequently turned to Clare Controls to install its smart home technology as part of its standard base package for 500 homes in 12 communities throughout Chandler, Gilbert, Queen Creek, and metro Phoenix.
“The industry has made smart home technology confusing. Some of our customers aren’t up on the latest technology so we don’t want to alienate or talk over their heads,” said Dennis Webb, Fulton Homes Vice President of Operations. “Clare makes their options simpler by providing practical, affordable packages that offer home buyers smart home technology that is easy to use and understand.”
Fulton Homes is providing new homeowners with control of heating/cooling, via a Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostat, from their favorite mobile devices to start. Clare provides a clear path to upgrade, leveraging several smart home packages such as common area and master suite lighting, enhanced safety and security, and entertainment packages. Each package is designed to simplify the homeowner’s life and includes a blend of smart devices that work together to increase security, comfort, and convenience.
“We are thrilled to provide Fulton Homes with our technology as a standard in their properties,” said Brett Price, Clare Controls CEO. “Clare strikes the right balance between Fulton’s millennial customers with high expectations and non-tech savvy customers, providing an affordable, luxury solution that is easy to operate. Fulton is the largest builder in Arizona and covers an extremely wide customer base. We are glad they finally found the right partner to meet their customers’ needs.”
Fulton Homes features a 13,000 square foot design center filled with products that can help turn a new house into a dream home. Clare’s new Smart Home Display Center will reside in the center to demonstrate the value and benefits of Clare smart home packages. Additionally, Fulton Homes Design Online, an online portal in the Fulton Homes Design Center, gives home buyers the opportunity to browse floor plans, view products, and check out Clare Controls smart home packages.
Fulton Homes believes the quality of lifestyle is an important factor, which is why homeowners will find unique amenities like smart home technology in their new homes as a standard.
