Hills adds home security and automation vendor to portfolio
Hills has signed a deal with cloud-based security and home automation services company Alarm.com to bring the vendor’s smart home services to Hills resellers.
Daniel Lee, Hills head of product practice, says the deal ‘brings the next frontier of security technology to the market’, with Alarm.com’s offering ‘the next step in home security and automation’.
While the company’s leading services are built around security they also include home automation devices like lights, locks and smart thermostats, with users able to control and manage the devices and appliances in their home through a smart phone app.
Action can also be taken automatically to manage energy more efficiently and reduce waste.
The Alarm.com services platform is integrated with Tyco Security Product’s DSC alarm panels and gives end users a security and home automation system ‘that adds a significant convenience and peace of mind to their lives’, the company says.
Reed Grothe, Alarm.com’s senior vice president for global business development says the vendor is excited about the partnership with Hills and the opportunity to deepen the reach for the company’s smart home services in the Australian market.
“Security and home automation services are driving broad consumer adoption of the smart home and this partnership will help Hill’s dealer network capitalise on the opportunity,” Grothe says.
