Clare Controls announced an update to the ClareHome app that delivers performance improvements, new features, and the ability to use widgets on mobile device home pages to control smart home and security functions. According to Clint Choate, Snap One senior director of security market, the new update leverages the latest capabilities of Apple’s iOS15 and Google’s Android 12 mobile operating system to improve user experiences and simplify smart home control. The Quick Access Widget creator in the ClareHome app can be used to add 1x2, 2x2, 2x4 or 4x4-sized widgets to any available home screen. The 1x2 or 2x2 widgets enable one-touch scene activation or control of a single device, while the 2x4 widget controls up to four devices or scenes, and the 4x4 can present up to eight devices or scenes and one recently used device.
