NextAlarm Partners with VoIP Provider Vontronix
NextAlarm has some unique alarm services. And now, instead of having a seperate ATA with their service, you can now get their service bundled with a Vonage-like service Voice over IP service called Vontronix. One box, two services. Quite an accomplishment, if you ask me. And a great way for Vontronix to differentiate itself in this crowded space.

NEXTALARM.COM(r) ANNOUNCES ALLIANCE WITH VONTRONIX
OJAI, Calif. (Feb. 28, 2007) – NextAlarm.com(r), The Broadband Alarm Company(r), today announced an alliance with Vontronix, Inc. of Brick, N.J., a VoIP provider that is targeted to alarm dealers who are looking for new security products to sell their customers.
At the International Consumer Electronics Show in January, NextAlarmÒ announced the formation of VoIPAlarm.com, its wholesale division, which is a value-added reseller (VAR) program.
With this joint alliance, Vontronix will use the NextAlarm – developed ABN(tm) (Alarm Broadband Network) adapter that handles both alarm signals and the Vontronix VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) service for alarm dealers. As a result, alarm dealers will be able to sell and install a single device that gives their customers both Vontronix VoIP service and ABN(tm), the industry’s first low-cost broadband solution for security system monitoring. There’s no longer a need for the customer to keep a standard phone line for their alarm system. The customer will be able to switch entirely to Vontronix VoIP service, using the VoIPAlarm adapter to provide both telephone service and alarm monitoring.
Alarm dealers will also be able to offer their customers VoIPAlarm’s features like E-Notify(tm), which allows customers to manage their system over NextAlarm’s secure web server; and V-Notify(tm), an automated interactive voice response (IVR) system, which notifies customers of any alarm signals at their home or business at the phone number of their choice.
“We’re very pleased to join Vontronix in this alliance,” said Alex Elliot, VoIPAlarm’s founder and CEO. ”With this alliance, alarm dealers will have their own branded versions of our website for their customers to use.”
“We feel that this alliance is a win/win for both companies,” said Ron Polli, Vontronix’s CEO. ”Alarm dealers will be able to sell our VoIP service and a solution that provides a reliable means of reaching the central station all though one device.”
VoIPAlarm is now available to alarm dealers through ADI, which is the largest wholesale distributor of alarm equipment in the United States and where the vast majority of small to medium-sized alarm dealers buy their equipment.
Vontronix is one of the premier VoIP providers offering nationwide coverage and a wide variety of enhanced features that make VoIP such a sought after product. Vontronix also has nationwide E911 coverage and directory assistance. The management team of Vontronix has a background in security system sales and installation plus a long history in telecom network design, so they know the security industry and its needs.
