Monitronics Announces Partnership with Icontrol Networks

Monitronics announced that it has selected Icontrol Networks for a partnership that will add powerful new products and services for Monitronics’ network of more than 600 authorized dealers.

Icontrol, a provider of advanced security and home automation technology, offers an interactive solution that combines a 3G radio, Wi-Fi, Z-Wave and video technologies for use with security control panels from leading manufacturers.

Icontrol Networks’ platforms currently manage more than 26 million sensors and devices worldwide. The platforms provide an open, standards-based system designed to integrate with existing smart devices, as well as the steady stream of new technology that continues to emerge at a rapid pace.

Bruce Mungiguerra, senior vice president of Operations for Monitronics, said that Icontrol’s proven record of success, quality and technological innovation were all major factors in its selection as a partner. He also said that the company’s dealers will soon have yet another attractive option for creating technology solutions that are tailored to a customer’s needs and lifestyle.

“One of the great benefits of the Monitronics Dealer Program is our dealers’ freedom to choose from quality products from the best manufacturers and distributors out there,” Mungiguerra said. “We want to give them attractive options in the products they offer, and Icontrol is an exciting new way for our dealers and our customers to take advantage of the latest security and smart home technology.”

Bob Hagerty, chief executive officer of Icontrol Networks, said that there is huge potential for growth of both companies. Monitronics’ base of more than 1 million residential customers represents a ripe opportunity, particularly for home automation.

“According to our 2014 State of the Smart Home Report, security is going to be one of the top drivers of smart home automation,” Hagerty said. “We’re excited to help Monitronics and their dealers meet this growing consumer demand now and in the future.”

ISC West attendees can learn more about the new offerings by finding Monitronics at Booth #10045.
