How to Build a Powerful Security Presentation [Show All]

SmartShow™ wows customers with market-specific demonstration


Crystal Lake, IL, April 1, 2016 — What would it mean if you could tailor your integrated security solution sales presentation specifically to the end-user’s facility, demonstrating exactly how it would work for them? Now you can with SmartShow™, a powerful, market-specific, virtual demo for Connect ONE®, the flagship integrated security management platform from Connected Technologies LLC, Crystal Lake, Ill. SmartShow illustrates deployments of the cloud-hosted Connect ONE, which seamlessly integrates security, access control, video monitoring, energy management and critical temperature monitoring and allows dealers to view, control and interact with all their customer’s systems from a single interface.

Instead of trying to close sales with static presentations and unrelated projects, SmartShow is tailored to the customer’s premises, illustrating zones, for example, that pertain to their vertical, as well as industry-specific video camera clips. Prospects know you have the capabilities they need in an instant with SmartShow.


How SmartShow Works

Dealers simply access SmartShow from the Connect ONE portal and run the program from their smartphone, tablet or laptop. No additional hardware is required to run the demonstrations. To make the presentation even more potent, dealers can share vertical-market-specific clips and alerts to the prospect’s email during the demonstration. With SmartShow dealers have access to tailored virtual demonstrations for Residential; Medical Facilities; Food Service Industries; Education; Commercial and Multi-Tenant; and Banking and Financial Facilities.

Not only does SmartShow provide a unique selling advantage and the ability to provide a more personal and knowledgeable presentation, but it allows dealers to differentiate themselves from other firms and competitive bids.


Connect ONE is a security management system interface dealers can deploy in all their customer’s integrations and access it from any Internet connected device, anywhere, anytime. Designed by dealers, for dealers, it has the most integrated capabilities in the market, making it easy to add recurring monthly revenue and boost ROI.
