ELK Products, Connect ONE partner for dealer expansion opportunities
The partnership between ELK Products, manufacturer of security and automation solutions and Connect ONE, the flagship, integrated security management platform from Connected Technologies, LLC, has been established to create a segue for residential integrators to move into the world of commercial systems solutions and increase their recurring revenue streams with new services.
“With the partnership we have developed and continue to refine with ELK Products we feel strongly residential security dealers and integrators can easily shift into the profitable small-to-medium business and other commercial markets, adding new streams of revenue and boosting their profitability,” says Mike Simon, a former dealer and Managing Partner, Connected Technologies. He adds that the Connect ONE portal provides easy access, so dealers can support their customer base remotely and from any Internet-connected device, often eliminating costly truck rolls and site visits.
“Through our partnership, Connect ONE adds valuable features to the ELK M1 Security and Automation control, providing integrators with new opportunities in the commercial market. User management for access control, critical temperature monitoring and logging, as well as detailed event notification including image capture from cameras are just a few of the options that are in high demand in commercial applications” says Amy Strickland, Marketing Design Manager at ELK Products.
The Connect ONE interface is fully compatible with ELK Products’ Security and Automation Control Systems and incorporates security, fire, access control, video and energy and task management to provide total control of home or business. The M1 Controls work seamlessly with the Connect ONE cloud-hosted interface to provide dealers simple, yet powerful on site and remote connectivity while giving both residential and commercial customers full control 24/7, from any web-based browser or smartphone.
With ELK Products and Connect ONE, residential dealers can expand into the world of commercial integrations – including the areas of energy management and critical temperature monitoring. Medical facilities, food service industries, education, commercial, multi-tenant and financial facilities are suitable targets for the M1 and Connect ONE interface.
