With Parks Associates reporting over 70 percent of new home security installations including smart home control features, and in home penetration rates of 17% of U.S. households for Amazon Echo, Echo Plus, Dot, Spot and Show with Alexa.

Alula Connects Alexa for Simpler Security
Arming or disarming an alarm system can be an anxiety producing juggling act. With the industry’s fastest-response times and option for full-service security without a keypad, Alula provides voice control through Alexa with the speed and simplicity homeowners expect.

Using any one of several products with Alexa Voice Assistant integration, homeowners can control critical and comfort features of their Alula Connect+ Platform. Just ask Alexa to:

  • Arm the Connect+ platform
  • Get the status of the Connect+ platform
  • Disarm the Connect+ platform using a verbal PIN Code
  • Run home automation scenes by name that are already knows to the Connect+ platform

“The team at Alula focuses tirelessly on creating simple, seamless secure solutions for homeowners with high expectations, but a low-tolerance for clunky hardware,” said Brian McLaughlin, CEO of Alula. “Alula’s modern, responsive platform was made for innovative applications like voice. Running on broadband not phone lines, makes Alula’s integration of Alexa quick and responsive.”

Why Voice Assistants Stall and Stutter on Other Systems
Last generation home security systems rely too heavily on cellular communications or telephone lines to make their systems work. Waiting several seconds to a minute or more to arm or disarm an alarm system or to run a home automation scene, just won’t work voice. In a smartphone first household, users expect the speed of flexibility of tapping, swiping or talking from wherever they may be. Alula’s broadband backbone makes talking to a voice assistant fast and natural.
