Alula, the leader in smart security and automation systems for professional installers and the award-winning inventors of the Connect+ Platform, was recognized by the Security Industry Association (SIA) with a New Product Showcase Award in the Intrusion Detection and Prevention Solutions category for their Slimline Touchpad. The awards are presented in coordination with ISC West — revealed on July 9 as part of a virtual presentation ceremony.
Alula’s Slimline Touchpad was commended by the judges for its ability to instantly modernize old security panels with at-a-glance control of video, security, environmental and automation sensors. The Touchpad creates an encrypted feed to Alula Video Cameras, including the Video Doorbell, so customers can see, hear and speak to people at the doorstep.
Installers have acknowledged the touchpad for its ease of use. The touchscreen looks and drives just like the Alula smartphone app, with a vivid 7” landscape view. That means only one set of controls to teach, with no manual needed, which saves security professionals both time and money.
“We’re honored to be recognized for the innovative Slimline Touchpad,” said Brian McLaughlin, CEO, Alula, “We’ve heard back from partners that the Slimline Touchpad is a system-seller that their customers love. This award from SIA is wonderful recognition of the hard work of our talented engineers.”
SIA’s new product showcase awards strive to recognize innovative physical security products, services and solutions. The technologies showcased provide the most innovative products on the frontline of security. Alula’s 2020 New Product Award win for the Slimline Touchpad follows up a 2019 SIA Award for the Bat-Connect communicator.
The Slimline Touchpad is now available pre-programmed as part of a new Connect+ kit that can be set up by a professional or an end-user with Pro assistance in 30 minutes or less.
“We know that a customer’s satisfaction with their security system will largely depend on their experience with the app and the home touchscreen controls,” says Dave Mayne, Vice President of Product Management at Alula. “That’s why we worked so hard to create a seamless user experience across those screens. Thank you SIA for continuing to recognize and celebrate innovation in our industry.”
