Guest Post: Game On with LakePoint Sports

John Loud by John Loud | 10.18.2016

John Loud is President of LOUD Security.

As a sports fan, I’ve spent a good share of my time on athletic fields, especially traveling to colleges when my son was scouting for a baseball scholarship. When I heard about the LakePoint Sports Complex that was being developed in Emerson, GA, I immediately saw its value for student athletes and our community.

With over a million visitors in its first year, LakePoint Sports features state-of-the-art sports venues and five million square feet of amenities, keeping it on track to be one of the world’s largest and most unique destinations for travel sports. LOUD Security was selected as the exclusive security provider for the entire LakePoint Community with a ten year agreement to provide all of the complex’s surveillance camera systems, access control systems, security/fire protection equipment and monitoring.

After discussing the unique needs of the facility with the LakePoint team, we selected Honeywell because their end-to-end solution gave us the ability to have a scalable product that would be supported now and well into the future. With Honeywell cable, fire, intrusion, video and access control, our customer has reliable, quality products protecting their visitors and easier operation for their staff.

Take a few minutes to watch the above video to see the scope of this amazing project.  I have a great sense of pride in my employees and the incredible work they have done. And, I feel very fortunate to have this ongoing relationship with LakePoint because they are really helping to make dreams come true for our nation’s young athletes.

The Honeywell Total Connect team will be on hand to demonstrate some exciting new capabilities on the app, including Geofence Arming Reminders.

Once alerted, they can simply arm the system via the Honeywell Total Connect app and go about their day.

This cloud-based dealer portal and business management system dramatically streamlines and simplifies the way you manage your accounts. Remote programming means faster on-boarding and remote diagnostics make accounts more efficient than ever to troubleshoot.

A Tornado Alert…on Long Island?

Chris Coleman by Chris Coleman | 09.14.2016
LYNX Touch Tornado Alert

Offer your customers an Information Services package to alert them of local weather conditions and tornado alerts.

Last month, my son called me at work and said our security system was beeping with a message on the screen telling him about a tornado warning. Needless to say, he was feeling a bit uneasy about the message and I told him to go to the basement immediately until the tornado warning ended. I quickly went online to the weather service and did learn that indeed there was a tornado alert on Long Island that fortunately did expire without an actual tornado occurring.

Early Warning from Honeywell Products
This whole experience got me thinking about tornadoes passing through Long Island and how our LYNX Touch security system was the medium that provided my son with the forewarning that a tornado might occur. This alert provided advanced warning to take an action, to get to a safer ground. The beeping got his attention to react!

Honeywell Total Connect Information Services
Honeywell Total Connect offers an “Information Services” package that includes current local weather conditions, five-day forecasts and severe weather alerts for tornadoes. These warnings are issued by the National Weather Service and that information is relayed by AlarmNet’s Cloud Services Data Center to your customer’s security panel. A series of loud beeps sound and a warning message will appear on the panel. It provides a level of increased preparedness and safety for those customers who are subscribed. People can be caught off-guard in potential severe weather situations, like my son, because they are not watching TV or online when a weather warning has been issued.

Staying Informed with AlarmNet 360
Select LYNX Touch series panels as well as the Lyric panel are compatible to receive tornado alerts. To enable the service, you can access your customers’ accounts in AlarmNet 360 and enable *“Information Services”.

Your customers already have the option to get alerted about other life safety events like carbon monoxide, burglary or fire. By offering them this way to be alerted about weather events, you are giving them even more ways to protect their families and belongings.

New SkyBell Video Highlights Benefits for Honeywell Total Connect Users

Donna Namorato by Donna Namorato | 08.25.2016

Since Honeywell Total Connect announced our full iOS compatibility support with SkyBell HD Smart Video Doorbell, we’ve received an extremely positive response. Why?  Now Honeywell Total Connect SkyBell users are able to see, hear and speak to visitors at the door directly through Honeywell Total Connect. They also have the ability to arm/disarm, lock/unlock the premises all through one screen, while seeing and talking to a visitor the entire time!  This convenient functionality helps you offer a better user experience and control, while helping to keep customers connected through our ever-expanding ecosystem.

Complete, Single-Screen Control
To help you communicate this great news to your customers, we have created the new video below that highlights the benefits. In the video, you’ll see a Honeywell Total Connect iOS user seeing, hearing and speaking to the child at the door, with full-screen video viewing. The video shows how simple it is to arm/disarm and lock/unlock the premises, all through one screen.

Embed the video on your website, share it with your sales team and incorporate it in your sales and marketing presentations. Convert and win new business with offerings like SkyBell that can separate you from the competition.
