Alarm.com offers a complete connected home services platform to ProSource’s 500+ members, which include some of the top integrators in the country. Alarm.com’s interactive security, video monitoring, energy management and intelligent automation solutions are all controlled through a single intuitive mobile app. With a broad range of devices connected to the platform, Alarm.com provides high-value solutions that can be customized to fit a wide range of customer needs. More than 2 million homes and businesses are powered by Alarm.com’s reliable and proven cloud platform.
ProSource’s relationship with Alarm.com was developed and secured thanks to ProSource’s Membership Committee led by director of membership Sherry Dantonio and further vetted by ProSource’s Custom Integration (CI) Committee. “Our committees are invaluable at targeting key manufacturers and technologies that will be assets to our members,” says Jim Ristow, co-president and CBO of ProSource. “We have several committees all with varying expertise that help us to identify new opportunities like these in emerging markets. With Alarm.com, not only do we get the leading smart-home and connected security offering, but we give our members the ability to generate recurring revenue, which is—or should be—an important part of their business plan.”
Some ProSource members have already been using the Alarm.com service and attest to the service’s value:
“Alarm.com is a slam dunk. It’s amazing to watch nearly 100% of our customers using their systems every month with unique features like smart schedules and geo-services,” says Henry Clifford, owner of Livewire. “Engaged customers stay with us and offer other sales opportunities across our other home technology products.” “Alarm.com has been an amazing addition to Eagle Sentry’s security services over the past three years. Alarm.com has given us a competitive edge over every other major company in the market,” says Greg Simmons, vice president of Eagle Sentry. “Our account attrition rate has slowed far below the industry average with the addition of the Alarm.com interactive services. It has been one of the best decisions we have made in our 27-year history.”
Alarm.com will perform a series of exclusive training sessions for ProSource members during CEDIA on September 10, entitled “Getting Started with the Connected Home.” Topics will include “Boost Your Business with Recurring Monthly Revenue,” “Products and Solutions Overview,” and “Tools for Partner Success.” For more information or to register, visit http://about-alarm.com/cedia/.
