WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — To help its affiliates reduce installation time and increase revenue, Security Networks has adopted Honeywell’s Wi-Fi alarm communications.
“Today’s world is digital and end users expect more from their security systems,” Security Networks Vice President of Operation Kurt Becker says. “By offering a Wi-Fi based system, it gives our affiliates an easier way to make sure the systems they provide meet our customers’ high expectations.”
More than 240 Security Networks associates can now offer the LYNX Touch 5100 self-contained security system. In addition to security, the device allows homeowners to control other home systems such as thermostats, lighting and door locks, which can help save money on energy bills.
The use of Wi-Fi reduces installation times and upfront equipment costs compared to similarly equipped GSM systems, allowing Security Networks partners to complete more installations and increase their revenue, according to Becker. Additionally, they can now offer Honeywell Total Connect remote services that allow homeowners to manage their security systems using mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones.
“This is the type of technology that can truly change the industry because it not only provides security but also enhances lifestyles and that means enhanced customer loyalty for Security Networks and our affiliates,” says Gary Franklyn, vice president of business development, Security Networks.
Security Networks is a full-service, nationwide monitoring and servicing company that serves more than 200,000 households across the United States.
