Wi-Fi will make installation more economical and easier for the affiliates, says Security Network’s vice-president of operations, Kurt Becker. According to Security Networks, Wi-Fi reduces installation times and upfront equipment costs.

“Today’s world is digital and end-users expect more from their security systems.  By offering a Wi-Fi based system, Security Networks is on the cutting edge of security technology and it gives our affiliates an easier way to make sure the systems they provide meet our customers’ high expectations,” Becker says.

Wi-Fi, for example enables affiliates to offer Honeywell Total Connect remote services that allow homeowners to manage their security systems using mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones.

“The LYNX Touch 5100 mobile app works fast, offering a vivid, clear touch screen display and is an industry first to use a tablet as a secondary keypad. With this enhanced technology, Security Networks is paving the way for affiliates to see an increase in profits,” says Gary Franklyn, Security Networks’ vice president of business development.


In addition to security, the LYNX Touch 5100 allows homeowners to control other home systems such as thermostats, lighting and door locks.

“This is the type of technology that can truly change the industry because it not only provides security but also enhances lifestyles and that means enhanced customer loyalty for Security Networks and our affiliates,” Franklyn said.

“Honeywell has proven a valued, progressive supplier of technology to meet changing needs of the security industry. They’re very responsive to market demand and expectations. Wi-Fi communications represents one of the biggest alarm industry advancements in a decade, says Becker.

Security Networks is a monitoring and servicing company that serves more than 200,000 households across the United States.
