LINCOLNTON, N.C. — Lenel and Interlogix awarded top-performing TierVantage dealers and value-added resellers (VARs) at the 2017 Elevate Partner Summit, held recently in Amelia Island, Fla.

Lenel and Interlogix are part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

More than 450 attendees participated in the annual three-day event, focused on sharing ideas and information to help Lenel and Interlogix dealers and VARs grow their security businesses. The Elevate summit offered workshops delivering insights into how the security industry is evolving, including the latest technology advancements that are making the world a safer and more convenient place to live.

The event also highlighted important issues such as cybersecurity, and offered up best practices and opportunities to improve business performance, as well as time for attendees to network and dialogue with their peers.

Meeting and talking to attendees about trends in the industry and how the business is evolving was recently appointed vice president and general manager for global security products in North America, Alex Housten.

“There’s a lot of innovation and resulting technology that’s changing the way people interface with security products,” says Housten. “As end-user demands evolve, we want to emphasize our commitment to delivering the advanced, best-in-class solutions that will help them meet or exceed their customers’ needs and expectations.”

The Elevate conference is also just one of the many ways that the Lenel and Interlogix TierVantage channel program supports and recognizes the value of Lenel and Interlogix’s customers, according to a news release. Closing the event, 19 awards were given to the company’s best regional and national dealers and VARs for growth in several categories over the past year.
