Tyco Security Products, a fire protection and security company, is partnering with Alarm.com to offer interactive services globally.
“We look for the best-of-breed technology partners, and pairing Alarm.com’s interactive service with Tyco Security Product’s hardware creates a highly attractive package,” says Alarm.com’s Senior Vice President of Marketing Jay Kenny. “This gives our international dealers the best set of options to bring to property owners and delivers a great experience for the customer,” he added.
Alarm.com will be available in early 2014 on DSC’s IMPASSA series followed by select other hybrid systems for global markets later in the year. The partnership includes a close engineering collaboration to ensure the full range of current and future Alarm.com services are supported providing a leading, future-proof platform to dealers globally, the companies stated in a press release.
Alarm.com provides connected home services for more than 1 million households. Its “highly customized” services include interactive security, video monitoring, energy management and home automation to perfectly complement Tyco Security Products’ expertise in interactive hardware solutions, according to the two companies.
Tim Myers, product line director - Intrusion, Tyco Security Products, stated, “We are very excited about the new opportunities and features that our partnership with Alarm.com will bring to Tyco Security Products and our global customers. With proven service delivery in the security and connected home space, Alarm.com supports our current and future product portfolio. Our partnerships with Interactive service providers in 2014 will give customers both the service and the product choice they have been looking for. We are committed to continue giving our customers top notch solutions for all their business opportunities.”
In August of this year, DSC announced a partnership with Telguard, a division of Telular Corporation, to offer interactive service solutions to support its DSC intrusion security products.
Telular was the first interactive service to partner with DSC.
For now, it appears the company will offer both interactive service offerings.
