Press Release: Alula Mobile Apps Make Security Simpler and Smarthomes Smarter

Alula Unifies Applications for the Alula Connect+ Alarm Panel Across SmartPhone, Tablet and TouchPad, Making a Single, Simple Secure Experience

HUDSON, WI–(PR WEB)– JUNE, 2018–Alula, the award-winning inventors of the Connect+ Platform, announced today the completion of advanced mobile app integrations that make security and automation simple and more intuitive. With the Alula app, security, smart devices, and video are seamlessly integrated creating a more engaging experience for consumers seeking more from their security solution. The Alula mobile applications will be available on iOS for the iPhone and iPad, and for Android phones, tablets and touchpads running version 4.1 and up.

Consumers can easily control their security system while controlling other devices and build scenes like “lock my doors” and “turn off lights” when arming their security system. In addition, dealers can easily brand the app with their own logo, reinforcing the relationship with their customers and letting users forego a wired wall panel altogether. This app builds on the powerful Connect+ wireless smart security platform from Alula. Security has never been this easy and this powerful.

“For a homeowner with a smartphone and smart home, there really is no difference between automation and security,” said Alula CEO, Brian McLaughlin. “Our goal is to put you at ease by making home security and automation simple and easy. And the professional security dealers who choose Alula can make this happen for homeowners every day.”

About Alula Security Mobile Application
The Alula Security mobile app combines your alarm system with smart device control into one app. Whether on smartphone or tablet, one simple, integrated app delivers direct control over your smart home features and security system. Without being tied to a panel on the wall, you can control lights, locks, thermostats, cameras and garage doors independently or in combination with the arming and disarming of your alarm, in whatever order you choose.

There’s even a demo-mode, built into the app, so you can see what a simple smart home security system looks like and plan the addition of new features, devices, and scenarios.

Both consumers and security professionals can download the apps by searching “Alula Security” in either App Store and look for the Alula icon: Try the Demo mode and plan to see a live demo at ESX booth 117 / #ESX2018.
