A few developments surfaced today out of the SecureNet Technologies camp. The Longwood, Fla.-based company, which provides video monitoring services and interactive home features, announced the launch of the SecureNet platform, a system that gives alarm providers a cloud-based management service.
The system is designed to increase the speed of alarm responses while improving their accuracy by eliminating errors caused by traditional notes-based dispatching systems, the company noted in a news release.
As we continue to see, there are several benefits for central stations who deploy a cloud-based platform. First off, it improves redundancy in the event of outages or natural disasters. It also reduces the man hours required for continual technological upgrades. Interestingly enough, while SecureNet’s platform is clearly moving with the hosted solution wave, it is also offered as a traditional on-site service.
The other piece of news, less of a strictly monitoring nature, is that SecureNet has joined the Z-Wave Alliance, a group of technology companies that design wireless home control products based on the Z-wave wireless communications standard.
SecureNet’s Interactive Gateway Modules, a line of hardware devices that integrate with the with alarm panels, is designed primarily for its adaptability to home management services. The devices use Z-wave technology to control and communicate with interactive video monitoring, access controls, as well as an array of home automation features.
In the coming days I’ll be following up with SecureNet to get a closer view of these latest developments.
