Alarm.com’s Sensor Walk Test Feature Earns MVP Award at ISC West

SSI recognizes Alarm.com’s new MobileTech enhancement, which streamlines and shortens the system installation process, with a Most Valuable Product Award

TYSONS, Va. and LAS VEGAS, April 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alarm.com (ALRM), the leading platform for the intelligently connected property, has been recognized with the Most Valuable Product (MVP) Award at ISC West for its new Sensor Walk Test tool for service providers.  Presented by Security Sales and Integration, the MVP Award highlights the importance of new technology to security service providers and integrators by recognizing innovative, industry-leading offerings. 

Sensor Walk Test, a new capability in MobileTech, Alarm.com’s installation and support app for service providers, enables technicians to independently initiate, perform, and verify the results of a sensor walk test. The feature eliminates the need to call the property’s monitoring station to initiate and verify the test; typically, one of the most laborious aspects of system installation. By removing this bottleneck, Sensor Walk Test enables technicians to spend less time onsite, perform more installations without compromising reliability, and create a better overall customer experience by reducing installation time.

“We’re honored that this aspect of our continuous work to build value for service providers has been recognized with an MVP Award,” says Dan Kerzner, Chief Product Officer at Alarm.com. “Our track record of solving longstanding challenges through innovation applies as much to our partner tools as it does to our home and business security solutions. Sensor Walk Test exemplifies our commitment to helping our partners more efficiently deliver exceptional smart home and business experiences.”

Sensor Walk Test leverages a new monitoring station integration, developed by Alarm.com, which allows technicians to independently confirm that all sensors are communicating correctly. Benefits to the technician include:

  • Speed: Technicians can independently place the security system into or out of Test mode, eliminating the need to call the monitoring station and wait for support.
     
  • Reliability: Technicians can quickly and efficiently check that all sensors are communicating as expected with the monitoring station, ensuring a high-quality installation.
     
  • Simplicity: Technicians can initiate, perform, validate and log the entire system test from a single app or web interface, with a single set of credentials.

Sensor Walk Test is available exclusively to Alarm.com’s service provider partners as part of MobileTech, Alarm.com’s best-in-class installation and support app for technicians. MobileTech is included with Alarm.com’s Growth and Productivity Services (GPS), a complementary program of training, tools and support that helps service providers optimize their businesses, deliver exceptional service, and stay ahead of the rapidly changing, technology-driven market for smart home and business solutions.

Sensor Walk Test, MobileTech and other GPS resources are currently being showcased at ISC West. For more information, Alarm.com’s service providers should contact their account executives.
