ATLANTA—Numerex, parent company of Uplink Security, announced today that Uplink’s “Installer App” has received M2M Evolution Magazine's 2014 M2M Evolution Product of the Year Award.

Uplink dealers and installers who use the new app now can operate more efficiently and more effectively and have greater flexibility in responding quickly to customers, according to a company news release. The app reduces installation time by more than 10 minutes per customer by automating many installation and activation tasks, the company said.

It said the new App simplifies the installation, activation and verification of alarm communication devices. The solution increases the accuracy of data entry for device set-up and reduces activation time.

Available for Android and iOS, the Uplink Installer App enables technicians to wirelessly activate devices and check signal strength of Uplink's alarm panel solutions. Uplink Installer's unique scan-and-go barcode scanning feature automatically reads a device's serial number, thus eliminating manual data-entry errors while streamlining the installation process.

The new app was designed, built, and powered by Numerex, a provider of on-demand and interactive machine-to-machine (M2M) enterprise solutions enabling the Internet of Things.

Kelly Gay, president of security solutions for Numerex, said in a prepared statement, “Our Uplink packaged solutions have long been the security industry's most trusted source of wireless alarm communicators and this award further validates our efforts to create a comprehensive and easy-to-use system.”
