Home builder program announced by Alarm.com to provide builders avenues for creating smart house features and ongoing IoT support.
Alarm.com announced a comprehensive home builder program that includes new hardware and service plans designed to facilitate partnerships between home builders and Alarm.com’s service provider partners. Home builders can deploy a full-range of Alarm.com’s smart home solutions in new communities and model homes while minimizing risks and costs by using the company's network of service provider partners for hardware installation and ongoing support.
Alarm.com’s home builder program gives its service provider partners "the opportunity for new revenue generation with minimal support or training requirements." Free model home kits, discounted hardware, and a new automation-only service plan facilitate partnerships with home builders. Service providers can cost-effectively deploy hardware in new home builds, showcase smart home solutions to new home buyers, and activate automation-only customers with the opportunity to upgrade to a full security solution over time.
“Builder partnerships offer a strong new growth opportunity for our service provider partners,” said Shawn Barry, Alarm.com’s Vice President of Strategic Sales. “We designed our builder program to give Alarm.com service providers a flexible and cost-effective pathway for working with home builders. New home buyers are highly interested in a range of smart home solutions, and we’re excited about expanding the opportunity for our service providers to engage these consumers with a differentiated solution.”
Flexible Solutions Builders can flexibly customize solutions that align with their target home buyer for each of their communities. Alarm.com’s broad ecosystem of compatible products includes many brands for smart thermostats, locks, doorbell cameras, and integrations with voice assistants.
From a single interface, builders can manage their entire portfolio of both spec and model homes using Property Management Solution. The enterprise dashboard enables builders to securely provide unattended access for showings and maintenance to instantly know about access events and trouble conditions such as water leaks, and manage thermostat parameters for energy savings.
