The Latest IoT Interface is Recognized for Streamlining Controls and Connectivity, Enabling the Next Generation of Smart and Secure Homes

Our partners consistently tell us that the Slimline Touchpad makes selling the Alula system easy, and we have no doubt that the Slimline Touchpad will continue to propel the industry forward.

Alula, the leader in smart security and automation systems for professional installers and the award-winning inventors of the Connect+ Platform, just brought home its fourth major industry award for the new Slimline Touchpad, establishing it as the most innovative home interface in 2020.

The latest win at the ESX Innovation Awards was presented virtually by the Electronic Security Expo in lieu of an in-person gathering this year. The judges honored the Slimline Touchpad in the Smart Home category, celebrating its ability to instantly modernize legacy security systems while saving security professionals both time and money with efficient installs.

“We are proud to highlight next gen products and services that create new opportunities for security professionals to deliver what end users want,” ESX Chair George De Marco said in the awards announcement.

This recognition marks four award wins for the Slimline Touchpad in 2020, including the Security Sales & Integration award for the 2020 Most Valuable Product, the Mark of Excellence Award for Security and Surveillance Product of the Year at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), and the IoT Evolution Product of the Year.

“We are honored to receive extensive recognition for the Slimline Touchpad,” said Alula CEO Brian McLaughlin. “The Slimline Touchpad modernizes legacy security systems by delivering the full Alula Interactive software suite to homes and businesses. Our partners consistently tell us that the Slimline Touchpad makes selling the Alula system easy, and we have no doubt that the Slimline Touchpad will continue to propel the industry forward.”

The Slimline Touchpad instantly modernizes legacy security systems. It has the ability to replace outdated or worn-out keypads on the wall with a modern app driven interface that combines security, video, and home automation in one, offering total control of the home.

Pros can install up to four Slimline Touchpads on almost any security system. Each of the Slimline Touchpads is fully capable -- none of them is subordinate -- and can be individually configured. For example, the Slimline Touchpad can speak zones and alerts you when a door is open. But you can turn off the feature for a Slimline Touchpad in the bedroom.

The Slimline Touchpad can be wall mounted or installed on any flat surface with the included hardware. It is also available pre-enrolled to the Alula network as part of the new Connect+ Kits.

“The future of security lies in convenience, connectedness and reliability,” says Dave Mayne, VP of Products at Alula. “By matching the Slimline Touchpad interface to the familiar Alula app on cell phones, we’ve made it easier on end users and given partners a professional look across the system that you can’t match with third-party interactive providers.”

Alula now offers the most cutting edge takeover option in the industry. Last year, the BAT-Connect communicator won four major awards for its ability to add interactive services to almost any legacy security system. Now with the Slimline Touchpad, the end user has the most innovative interface to showcase their new system’s added capabilities.

“The BAT-Connect plus Slimline Touchpad is the ultimate takeover offering to instantly turn legacy security systems into modern Smart Homes with interactive controls,” McLaughlin adds.
