Alarm.com Forms Alliance With Vonage to Offer VoIP-Based Systems
Alarm.com, a provider of wireless, Web-enabled security
system technology, announces a marketing alliance with
Vonage Holdings Corp., North America’s leading broadband
telephony company, to address the growing need for voice-
over-IP (VoIP)-compatible security systems for residential
and commercial VoIP customers. Through its participating
security dealers, Alarm.com will offer Vonage customers a
phone-line-independent security system that transmits alarm
signals from a customer’s home or business wirelessly to a
central monitoring station, which can then contact local
authorities in the event of an emergency.
Monitored security systems that require traditional
phone service have prevented some VoIP customers from
canceling their traditional phone service and recognizing
the full economic benefits of VoIP telephone service.
Alarm.com’s long-range wireless solution provides VoIP
customers security event signaling that is not dependent on
their phone line. Under the terms of the program,
participating Alarm.com dealers will also be able to offer
their customers broadband phone service from Vonage. The
savings generated by switching primary phone service to
Vonage often cover the cost of security monitoring, which
makes the Alarm.com/Vonage “TomorrowTech”(TM) package an
attractive option for many customers who are currently
using landline-based security systems.
“We are pleased to partner with Vonage, the leading
provider of VoIP service, to offer its customers a VoIP-
compatible security system solution,” said Steve Trundle,
Alarm.com CEO, in a statement. “Alarm.com’s capabilities
allow customers to use the Web to monitor and control their
homes and businesses remotely and are a great fit with
Vonage customers’ Internet lifestyles and their broadband
Alarm.com-enabled security systems are offered through a
national network of more than 200 licensed security
dealers. Alarm.com systems are used to monitor and protect
houses, apartments, offices, stores, retail chains, model
homes, data centers, trailers and more.
