BETHESDA, MD., Nov. 5, 2019
Brivo, the global leader in cloud-based physical security solutions, and Alula, the award-winning inventors of the BAT-Connect communicator and the Connect+ intrusion and automation platform, announced today a cloud-to-cloud integration partnership between their respective platforms to provide unified access control and intrusion capabilities for the commercial market.
The newly announced partnership will provide Brivo customers with single-point control and monitoring of key alarm functions and intrusion reporting data. This delivers a true UL-compliant security package and ensures alarm signals are reported from both intrusion and access platforms.
Customers will be able to arm and disarm their Alula-enabled intrusion systems from within the Brivo Onair web UI or the Brivo Onair Mobile Administrator app, available on both iOS and Android. The Onair activity log and reporting tools will also include event data from the intrusion system to provide a single source of truth for system administrators and GSOC operators.
“We see this as an important extension of our platform to provide simply better security to our customers, with a maintenance-free cloud-to-cloud API integration that leaves all the technical details to us so that integrators can install and configure both systems quickly in the field,” said Steve Van Till, President and CEO of Brivo. “What we like about Alula is that, like us, they are a hybrid IP-native product and cloud company that provides extensive connectivity to over 100 of the top independent central stations, which is what we need to cover the needs of our 1,000+ dealers and resellers.”
The breadth and flexibility of Alula’s product line made it a natural fit for the partnership. Between the award-winning Connect+ hub and the newly launched BAT-Connect communicator, Alula offers intrusion and automation solutions for every potential small business scenario, from new installs, upgrades and takeovers, including popular panels from Honeywell and DSC.
“We are extremely excited to partner with Brivo on this important integration in the commercial small business market,” said Brian McLaughlin, CEO of Alula. “Our solutions perfectly complement each other and will greatly simplify employee management services, giving customers the best of both worlds.”
