BAT-Connect Communicator

Easily upgrade old security panels to a modern, mobile user experience. Much more than a basic communicator, this award-winning device smartly bridges intrusion security, video, and automation to the lightning-fast Alula Network.

Your security panel needs the right touchpad


Old school communicators are just that. Old. Keeping the dusty keypad on the wall is usually a requirement with ordinary communicators. Not with BAT-Connect.


Update to the cutting-edge Slimline Touchpad, the vivid Alula 7” touchpad mirrors the Alula Mobile App and navigates like a smartphone. Just tap and swipe for complete and instant system control.


A wall and table top mount is included for location flexibility, with black or white color options.
