PCCW Global and AlarmSecur partner to launch internationally connected IoT security solution
Hong Kong/ Rijswijk, The Netherlands, January 05, 2020 – PCCW Global (https://www.pccwglobal.com/) , the leading telecommunications service provider, and AlarmSecur (https://alarmsecur.com/) , a major international Internet of Things (IoT) home security specialist, have collaborated to bring to market an all-in-one and easy-to-use security camera solution, providing consumers with a plug-and-play security device that includes remote and cloud features right out of the box, without having to insert or configure a local SIM connectivity device.
The innovative bundled security solution enables consumers to purchase an all-in-one package of AlarmSecur’s S6 or S7 video intercoms and 6GB of pre-installed data on PCCW Global’s IoT SIM cards, automatically and cost-effectively connecting to existing mobile operator networks almost anywhere in the world. This bundled connectivity correspondingly unleashes a wealth of advanced device security features that include remote monitoring and AI-based cloud services such as optimal face recognition and tracking.
Connectivity is enabled and configured by AlarmSecur through PCCW Global’s Console Connect IoT service. The service makes use of advanced eSIM technology that connects to an extensive worldwide mobile network of 2G, 3G and 4G services and is also supported by PCCW Global’s own private international MPLS infrastructure.
The new bundled home security solution is making its international debut at CES 2021 in Las Vegas on 11 January, 2021.
Roderik van der Touw, CEO, AlarmSecur, says: “Together with PCCW Global, we have created a new solution that provides extra convenience, ease-of-use and a one-stop-shop experience to our customers. PCCW Global has also provided a service portal for us to manage the SIM connectivity and to facilitate charging and top-up of the connection usage.”
Craig Price, Senior Vice President, Mobility Products and Marketing, PCCW Global, says: “We are proud to work with AlarmSecur, and together we have demonstrated how IoT products can be produced and ‘born connected’ internationally, without any hassles.”
The Event Based AI IoT platform with Visual Verification from AlarmSecur.com integrates any sensor triggered device (such as an alarm system) with cameras, sending two seconds of video prior to the trigger event and 13 seconds of video thereafter, via push notification to a paired mobile phone.
Within the phone’s mobile application, customers are able to upgrade to PREMIUM services that include a LIVE Video Monitoring Center, Property Monitoring or Vehicle Management with integrated Facial Recognition technology.
In addition, should a security event occur, our Control Centers can take immediate action – sending a security guard or emergency services to your home, office or vehicle.
