MVP Award

LAS VEGAS, April 10, 2019—Connected Technologies LLC has been awarded a 2019 MVP Award from Security Sales & Integration magazine for GeoView, a new capability that adds the power of Google Maps to the Connect ONE cloud-hosted security management platform. The MVP Awards were judged by a panel of industry experts and Managing Partners Mike and Dan Simon accepted the award on April 9 during ISC West at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.

GeoView is revolutionary in that it allows users to see status for all locations instantly in a wide-area satellite map. With GeoView, users and dealers can drill down into each location for real-time alarm, health and system monitoring and control. In addition, GeoView gives dealer a tangible way to offer additional levels of managed services, while the end-user easily interacts with the system for ongoing, sustainable value.

“We're excited to receive the MVP award for our new value-add service GeoView—with the ability to gather information on all sites at a glance and through one single user interface, Connect ONE. Dealers and users need this type of solution so they can provide the best service to their customers while they add to their suite of recurring revenue services,” said Mike Simon. “Our goal, as always, is to make it simpler for dealers to offer features that provide services which add value to both the dealer and their customers.”

The MVP Awards recognize products that make a substantial impact on integrators and were judged on innovation, functionality, competitive advantages, benefits to the installer or monitoring provider and benefits to the end user. “Now in its fifth year, SSI’s Most Valuable Products Awards has solidified its standing as not only one of the most credible programs of its kind for the electronic security industry but also the greatest value for entrants,” said Security Sales & Integration Editor-in-Chief/Associate Publisher Scott Goldfine. “It’s overwhelming for security integrators to keep up with the thousands of products introduced annually. SSI’s MVP Awards provides integrators the valuable service of distinguishing particularly noteworthy new products, and salutes the manufacturers responsible for them.” Nearly 50 entries were among the products and solutions judged by experienced integrators and industry consultants.

GeoView allows users to have secure access to a map of their building(s) with information available at a glance through designated icons that indicate live system status. Users get instant visual notification over the map for alarm activation—depicted with a flashing red icon; yellow a trouble condition; and green indicating good health status. They can see all locations and status of systems installed in one location and view and control equipment by clicking on icons of cameras, zones and sensors, doors and outputs, as well manage arming and disarming of intrusion systems.

With GeoView, users can monitor activity and send commands with mouse clicks to remotely lock or unlock doors or tap into cameras for a quick look at the surveillance area(s), for example. The size of the map view only opens to the boundaries of site locations, keeping views relevant to customer’s locations. Overlay interior floor plans provide easy reference of equipment locations along with viewing and control, while the map of system and building particulars can be easily modified.

Connect ONE is a patented management solution for system integrations that dealers resell to their customers, growing their monthly recurring revenue. The integrated security management platform provides a single user interface to control intrusion, access control, critical environmental monitoring, energy management and video surveillance.
