Here’s more about Connect ONE:
Connected Technologies first started offering Connect ONE to its customers in 2008 through its service and installation business, Stand Guard. They had to learn from the ground up the nuances of selling a cloud service, end user customers pricing and IT department acceptance. This firsthand knowledge gave them the background for designing a platform they could then offer to other dealers, not only across the U.S. but also around the world.
Among the focus areas for Connect ONE are intrusion, access, video, HVAC and lighting and critical environmental monitoring
Whether it’s one or a hundred locations with multiple panels, they can all be managed in real time from any web-enabled device on ONE screen with a single log-in credential.
There’s no software to install or maintain and no router or firewall configuration needed. Connect ONE is network or cellular communication capable and helps installers generate new recurring monthly revenue and maximize customer retention.
It can be branded with your company name and logo and promotes standardization for training and support. The alarm transmission comes directly from control panel to your central station and is always up-to-date, with automatic backup for disaster recovery.
