LAS VEGAS, April 2, 2014 ISC West Booth #17101 Telguard, a leader in wireless alarm communications, interactive and home automation services, today announced a new service plan for their HomeControl interactive solution currently available for 2GIG and DSC panels. The new HomeControl OneRate service plan replaces the previous, multi-tier pricing structure with a single flat price of $6.85 with no activation fees. The OneRate plan gives dealers up to a 50% savings over other interactive solutions while providing the superior performance features of HomeControl interactive services. This single, all-in price enables them to more effectively upsell interactive features and capture higher RMR in today's highly competitive security market.
"In order to create the maximum stickiness in the shortest time with homeowners, competing service providers are bundling service offerings that lead with video and automation," said Shawn Welsh, VP of Marketing and Business Development, Telular. "With the HomeControl OneRate service plan's all-inclusive pricing, dealers can now meet or beat their competition feature for feature, while offering a better price regardless of a particular homeowner's interest in remote arming, Z-Wave, video or all three. The industry's a la carte pricing contracts and complexity will be a thing of the past."
Competitive solutions artificially limit the number of sensors and Z-Wave devices installed with a system, while also charging a premium for live cameras. Telguard's HomeControl OneRate plan eliminates this complexity and allows the end user to control and respond to all of the sensors and Z-Wave devices available within the home.
The OneRate plan also makes video, a highly valued feature of any interactive solution, much simpler to sell. "With other interactive solutions, security dealers have to pay additional fees to include full motion cameras, and even more fees for additional video storage. The OneRate plan lets dealers leverage any of Telguard's indoor and outdoor cameras, allowing them to add up to 10 full motion cameras sharing 500MB of video storage per month to any system, for no additional charge," said Welsh.
"Video is a primary driver of mass market adoption of connected home technology," said Paul Dawes, Executive Vice President and General Manager at iControl Networks. "Telguard's new pricing model makes both live and event-based video affordable for any security customer, and ensures that dealers have a leading solution in a highly competitive marketplace."
Telguard's HomeControl interactive solution, based on the iControl Connect™ software platform from iControl Networks, is available today for the DSC IMPASSA and PowerSeries platforms, as well as the 2GIG Go!Control wireless control panel. HomeControl gives users the ability to remotely arm and disarm their security system, and offers Z-Wave control, and integrated video, all through a premier solution that places the dealer's brand first. Furthermore, HomeControl goes beyond the basic interactive service of arming and disarming by offering the ability to tie into all the security panel's events, such as motion detectors and door sensor information. Security dealers can activate the service directly with Telguard via Telguardonline.com or with Telguard's participating central station resellers.
Telguard's HomeControl solutions will be on display at ISC West 2014, April 2-4 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center, Nevada in Telguard's booth #17101.
