The Future of Home Security Cameras

The Honeywell Total Connect Team has been working day and night developing the next generation of home security video cameras. At Alarm New England, we had the fortunate opportunity to beta test the new IPCAM-WIC1 Indoor HD Camera. It didn’t take long for the new camera to win us over.

The new HD video camera captures video, triggered by motion or sound, at 720p with night/day vision to ensure visibility. With higher demand for DIY home security systems, it comes in perfect stride that the new IPCAM-WIC1 Indoor Camera requires almost no effort to install. Rather, the video camera can be placed anywhere and simply plugged in.

The IPCAM-WIC1 Indoor Camera in Action

Alarm New England’s lead technician Connie was in the middle of testing the new HD video camera, when her doberman pinscher walked right up to the lens and said hello with a few sniffs and doggie kisses. The video footage captures the beauty of the camera’s 2-way audio feature, and you can see how it would be ideal for people who are interested in monitoring children, elderly parents or pets.

Honeywell Authorized Dealer Program

Honeywell, being at the forefront of the security industry, is constantly seeking out new business opportunities for their dealers. Over the years of partnership between Honeywell and Alarm New England, we have been able to participate in these special pilot programs to provide feedback and help drive new business development activities. The Honeywell Authorized Dealer loyalty program has been key for the active participation of both companies to stay connected as the security industry powers ahead.

Since its founding, Alarm New England has built a business that serves over 27,000 customers. We know how to support our clients and sustain relevance for them despite massive technology shifts over the last several years. We are tried and tested, customer focused, and dedicated to technological innovation.

Constructing Relationships with the Lyric Platform

According to a recent article by CNBC, the confidence of homebuilders in the U.S. has risen this year. Builders say they are seeing rising demand from buyers, who are ready to pay a premium for new construction. When it comes to securing those new homes, the Lyric platform is a perfect fit with its intuitive interface and upscale look.

Shiver Security Systems, Inc. of Dayton, OH is promoting the Lyric Controller and the Lyric Gateway to builders in Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky. Understanding the need for easy-to-install, connected home solutions, Alison Shiver, Director of Residential Sales & Marketing, is working with many builders to offer this solution.

One of these builders is Chris Cavens of the Christopher Michael Holmes Group. In the video below, he discusses how he was looking for a free-standing, flexible solution for his new city building and apartment dweller applications. According to Chris, everyone he has approached with the Gateway said they were interested and would install it in their new home.

Take a few minutes to watch the video above to find out how the Lyric platform can be the foundation to help drive your bottom line. And if you are at CEDIA this week, come visit us in Booth 3135 to see the technology for yourself.

Satisfying Customers with Remote Home Monitoring

Having customers with video awareness products may help lower your attrition rate because more system interaction means improved awareness, control and peace of mind. For me, this holds very true. As a working mom, it’s very comforting to be able to look in on my one-year old daughter when she is home during the day. I can zoom in to see her facial expressions and “be there” the first time she says a word or does something new. I get an alert if she is crying and can talk to her through the camera, which surprises her and makes her laugh. I can also get other sound notifications. For example, if something falls in the living room, I would be notified and can check the video to make sure everything’s OK. These features are very comforting because they help keep me informed of what’s going on, even when I am away.
