Are you talking about cabling, software that needs to be installed, megabits per second and hardware to the prospect? Don’t do it, because you’re probably just confusing them. Is that the way Nest or Ring goes to market? Quite the opposite: they focus on how the user’s lives will be more convenient and safer. Here’s the way to make security simple for the customer: cloud-hosted integrated platforms that manage every technology through a single common interface.
Connected Technologies’ Connect ONE® cloud-hosted security management platform integrates security, access control, mobile credential access, video, and critical environmental monitoring in a single solution. Connect ONE interfaces with the complete line of Bosch Security, DMP, Elk Products and Honeywell Turbo controls and provides an easy way to add managed services through its cloud offering. The company provides numerous free, value-added services to its dealer customers and it’s simply the firm’s philosophy of serving the dealer.
When Connected Technologies, LLC and its Connect ONE® cloud-hosted integrated security platform launched several years ago, former dealer and managing partner Mike Simon set out on a mission to deliver targeted services that installers and their customers could use to manage their business holistically without increasing operating expenses. When an integrated platform is easier for customers, such as Connect ONE, the stickier they become and the more likely to add other capabilities. That means tangible recurring monthly revenue for the dealer and a higher overall business valuation.
New integrations from Connected Technologies with the industry’s most exciting products continues to expand the installation and specification possibilities of the Connect One® cloud-hosted security management platform. The new Remote Connect cloud service makes it even faster and easier to connect to the control panels by eliminating the need to change customer router settings, firewall rules or to use Domain Name Service (DNS) to access the systems remotely.
