Connected Technologies Adds Bosch Control Panel Support to Cloud-hosted Security Management Platform

Dealers and integrators can offer a complete suite of security services to residential and commercial customers through a new partnership between Connected Technologies, LLC, Crystal Lake, Ill., and Bosch. Connect ONE® the flagship security management platform from Connected Technologies now integrates seamlessly with our B Series and new G Series security control panels. 

Connect ONE lets users control and manage solutions that include security, access control, video, energy management, and more from an intuitive inter-face that is accessible from a PC, laptop, smartphone or tablet. Through Connect ONE, users with B Series or new G Series Control Panels can check status, arm or disarm systems, view live video or snapshots from Bosch IP cameras integrated with the panels, and lock, unlock or secure doors within G Series systems that include access control. They can also add, remove and change passcodes and access credentials using the Connect ONE interface.

Dealers have the flexibility to select the most appropriate level of service for their business and their customer. They can fully administer the solution for their customer, have the customer manage it, or provide a blended service offering.
“With the integration, Bosch dealers now have interactive services supported by the cloud that allow them to expand their customer base through additional market verticals and grow their recurring monthly revenue,” says Mike Simon, a former dealer and managing partner, Connected Technologies. “We’re excited about this partnership and will work closely with Bosch to continue to make the offering more robust and conducive to dealers who want to grow their profitability by providing additional, valuable interactive services to their customers.”
“Through the integration with Connect ONE, we’re able to offer dealers and end users even greater flexibility for interacting with and controlling their Bosch systems – whether they prefer a laptop, tablet or smartphone,” says Tom Mechler, applications design manager for Bosch. “This enhances the user experience and allows our dealers to increase their competitive edge by providing greater value to their customers.”
The Connect ONE dealer portal allows dealers to view and control all their customer’s devices and locations on one screen, which can help eliminate the need to roll trucks for site visits and reduce support costs. There is no software to manage and no user licensing fees required.
