Nortek Security & Control, Alarm.com Partner on Security and Automation System

The security, smart home and wellness technology leader’s platform to feature Alarm.com’s connected home solution.

LAS VEGAS – Nortek Security & Control and Alarm.com have announced a technology integration for the launch of the new 2GIG GC3 home security and automation system. The home security and automation system launched earlier this year exclusively featuring Alarm.com’s cloud-based services.

According a joint press release, the GC3 is a highly intuitive 7-inch all-in-one security and home control touchscreen panel that provides home security, smart home control, mobile alerts, and robust user features that will be anchors for 2GIG and Alarm.com dealers. Nortek says 3 million 2GIG panels have been installed in the United States thus far.

With the growing trend toward “SHaaS” (smart home as a service), Nortek Security & Control will now support sales of the Alarm.com WiFi doorbell camera, Skybell HD Edition. The fully integrated experience enables users to access all of their connected devices, including the doorbell camera, through the Alarm.com app. Looking ahead, the companies says they will continue to explore synergistic initiatives focused on opportunities to deepen joint development and expand support for security dealers.

“As one of our most strategic partners, we’re pleased to broaden our close working relationship with Alarm.com,” says Tom Cummiskey, group vice president of sales at Nortek Security & Control. “Given their growth providing premium smart home as a service, this deeper collaboration is an important and natural evolution of our relationship and we look forward to what the future has in store.”

“With our commitment to innovation, we’re proud to be the exclusive provider for the new 2GIG GC3 panel,” says Alarm.com Senior Vice President of Sales Nate Natale. “We’re excited to collaborate with Nortek Security & Control to provide the best smart home control and monitored security experience to our customers.”
