5 Simple Steps to Manage Dealer Ownership of Accounts with AlarmNet 360

AlarmNet 360

With AlarmNet 360, you can manage dealer ownership of accounts in five easy steps.

Looking for a way to easily manage your accounts? AlarmNet customers can now manage dealer ownership of their accounts quickly and easily through AlarmNet 360.  If you are an AlarmNet dealer, this means you can take and relinquish account ownership or transfer it to your Central Station as needed.

Having the ability to manage your accounts greatly streamlines the process, saving your company valuable time and effort.  Let’s take a look at the various scenarios and how you can manage ownership through AlarmNet 360.

Dealer to Dealer
Situation: The selling dealer wants to transfer ownership so the purchasing dealer can manage the account through AlarmNet 360.

Action: The selling dealer must first relinquish the account in AlarmNet 360 per the steps below. Then the purchasing dealer must complete the “Take Ownership” process in AlarmNet 360 to gain access to the account.

Dealer to Central Station
Situation: The central station is purchasing the account from a dealer.
Action: Since the central station always has access to their accounts, they simply have to take ownership away from the selling dealer through the Manage Ownership function, thus preventing the selling dealer from further accessing the account. If the dealer has programmed from the panel/keypad, they must choose the option to block other dealers from taking ownership of the account.

Central station to dealer
Situation: The central station/installing central station is selling the account to a dealer.
Action: The central station will maintain access to the account, but they will enable the purchasing dealer to take ownership of the account through the Manage Ownership function.

Manage Ownership Process
The process involves five simple steps:

  1. Go to the programming screen on AlarmNet 360.
  2. Search for the account by entering the City-CS-Sub number or the 12-Digit MAC ID of the communicator, then click search.
  3. Once the Account Information appears, click the “Actions” dropdown and select “Manage Ownership.”
  4. Choose the appropriate option, type “I Agree,” then click “Submit.”
  5. Once submitted, you will receive a “Success” message stating that the action you selected is completed.

Multi-Site Accounts
If the account is one location of a multi-site Honeywell Total Connect Remote Services account, a pop-up will appear stating that ownership cannot be managed through AlarmNet 360.  In that case, contact AlarmNet Customer Service at 1(800) 323-4576, Select Option 1, then Option 1 again for Cloud Services; or send an email to alarmnet@honeywell.com.

Take advantage of this opportunity to collaborate with your dealer or central station to manage ownership of your accounts simply and easily through AlarmNet 360.

 

AlarmNet Expands Video Alarm Verification Support

Donna Namorato by Donna Namorato | 03.09.2017
AlarmNet has expanded its integration with I-View Now to include VAV support for the Performance Series HQA DVRs and for Performance Series IP NVRs

AlarmNet expanded its integration with I-View Now to include VAV support for the Performance Series HQA DVRs and for Performance Series IP NVRs.

When it comes to their security systems, business and homeowners want to know what is happening in real time. And, if there is an alarm, they want to see what caused it immediately. That is why Video Alarm Verification (VAV) presents such a great opportunity.

What Is VAV?
Video Alarm Verification (VAV) helps takes the guesswork out of what caused an alarm event since the central station operator can actually see pre-alarm video footage. This lets monitoring personnel alert authorities to potentially dangerous situations before help is summoned—promoting a higher level of safety for customers and first responders.

In 2015, AlarmNet launched its first VAV integration with I-View Now to support Honeywell Total Connect Remote Services and the HRGX Performance Series DVR. We are pleased to announce that AlarmNet has expanded its integration with I-View Now to include VAV support for the Performance Series HQA DVRs and for Performance Series IP NVRs.

The expanded integration options offer a wider range of VAV choices to include- Analog or IP Video, DVR and NVR solutions- helping dealers and central stations to expand their connected home and business offering.

I-View Now offers a patented, cloud-based central station interface that makes VAV as easy as pushing a button. It’s ideal for residential or small commercial applications and is a great way to earn more RMR. Central stations must be integrated with I-View Now in order to offer VAV services to their dealers.

How Can You Benefit?
For dealers and central stations, incorporating VAV into your portfolio can help expand your business, increase your RMR and satisfy the fast-growing segment of local municipalities that mandate VAV before dispatch. For central stations specifically, VAV may help reduce the time and costs associated with false alarms and help provide better information to emergency responders about what is happening at the premise.

Whether you are an end user, dealer or central station, it’s clear that VAV takes the guesswork out of alarms—improving situational awareness.
