Alarm.com, the interactive services platform provider, made its first foray into the commercial market, with the purchase, earlier this year of Secure-i. Here's that story.
Its recent integration with Tyco Security Products marks another move for the interactive services platform provider into the small-to-medium commercial market.
Tyco is integrating its PowerSeries Neo platform with Alarm.com’s cloud-based services (interactive security, intelligent automation, video monitoring and energy management solutions). This, Tyco said, gives dealers the opportunity to offer small-to-medium commercial customers "simple and scalable" interactive services.
PowerSeries Neo "combines the flexibility of a modular, hardwired system with the simplicity of a wide range of compatible wireless devices," Tyco said. This platform uses PowerG wireless intrusion capabilities for a hybrid intrusion system. PowerSeries Neo features built-in Z-Wave capabilities through CDMA and HSPA (3G) communicators.
“We’re excited to bring the next generation of smart technology to the commercial space with the PowerSeries Neo powered by Alarm.com,” Dan Kerzner, chief product officer, Alarm.com, said in a prepared statement.
“We have seen smart home technology dramatically improve the safety and efficiency of homes and create more value for our dealer partners, and we believe there are significant opportunities in the commercial market to help business owners manage their locations, secure their properties and make them more efficient.”
Tim Myers, director of product management, Intrusion, Tyco Security Products said in a prepared statement that “The integration of PowerSeries Neo and Alarm.com uniquely anticipates the future needs of the connected environment, whether a residence or a multi-tenant commercial property, and provides infinite opportunities to maximize the system."
