The Alula Security Platform
Security dealers have built a business by securing their community -- friends, neighbors, business owners. The Alula Security Platform was designed to help dealers simplify and grow their business. Built upon tested, award-winning technology that continues to meet the demands of today’s consumers, our total solution enables dealers to reach more customer types than ever before. In addition to encrypted communications, dealers and their customers can be assured Alula Security Platform is compliant with UL standards for residential burglary, residential fire and commercial burglary standards.

Alula’s flexible and quick wireless installation solution opens the door to renters and other short-term residents that might not have considered a professionally monitored security installation but want safety and home automation. This same simplicity combined with a robust platform that is highly compatible and expandable, allows for large installations, complex integrations and existing system takeovers and expansions with industry-leading speed and simplicity.

Imagine training on, supporting and stocking one system for all of these security environments.

  • A system that enables you to offer either a self-install or professional installation experience to your customers.
  • A solution that opens the door to providing basic security for renters to advanced automated home and business consumers.
  • A hardware and software architecture that cuts out the need to run wires, put holes in walls and hunt down closets.

The Alula Security Platform delivers a simplified installation experience that can take less than thirty minutes. Combine that with remote configuration, troubleshooting and updating, you will spend less time in your customer's home or business and more time selling.
