Large Utah Integrator Rebrands to Target Smart Home Market
AMP Security has announced a new name — AMP Smart — and unveiled a new home automation package using Qolsys equipment and Alarm.com service.
AMP Security in American Fork, Utah, has a new name and a new home automation equipment package to go with the new brand.
The company, which has more than 8,500 subscriber accounts and generates nearly $500,000 per month in recurring monthly revenue (RMR), will now be known as AMP Smart. It is deploying next generation technology from Qolsys and Alarm.com as part of the comprehensive rebrand.
The AMP Smart solution is led by a 7-inch touchscreen with built-in panel camera and innovative software applications includes a modern, intuitive, swipe-based user interface with support for security, life safety, cameras and smarthome technology.
“Our mission is to connect you to your home using smart products and services to make your life easier and safer," says AMP CEO and co-founder Allen Bolen. “This is the most attractive, most powerful platform on the market we are thrilled that every AMP Smart customer will receive a 5 Megapixel camera, five touchless disarming devices, encrypted sensors, a built-in router, a glassbreak detector and so much more.”
The AMP Smart panel will include the Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core 400 processor – a highly integrated system-on-a-chip (SoC) that supports LTE cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, on-board router, Android and HD display, and integrates leading smart home services powered by Alarm.com (Nasdaq: ALRM) ensuring reliable and easy to use awareness and control for consumers across a broad range of connected devices through a single, intuitive mobile app.
“We are excited to launch our next generation product this year with the AMP Smart team. The panel represents the culmination of two years of development and integration of our best in class partnerships with Alarm.com, Qualcomm, Foxconn and Android,” says Mike Hackett, Qolsys, SVP sales and marketing. “We are committed to security dealers and delivering a platform that reduces install time, total cost of ownership and attrition. The AMP Smart team shares our vision to embrace technology in the security space while delivering more value and improved service to end users.”
The AMP Smart Panel delivers a broad set of enhancements, including data encryption on every radio interface, industry-leading IoT support, integration of interactive services, and flexibility to accommodate customization and future innovation.
AMP reported nearly doubling in size in 2015.
