ATLANTA, GA, March 26, 2012 –Uplink announced today the launch of "Uplink Remote," a new service that provides alarm systems using Uplink cellular communications the capability to remotely control an alarm system through the use of Uplink services and a free Uplink application from the iTunes App Store for iPhones or from Google Marketplace for Android smart phones or by using a computer connected to the internet.
Uplink Remote will allow alarm system users to remotely view the armed status of the system, and to arm and disarm the system. The service can send emails and text messages of alarm events to users, display 60 days of event history and save the history to a file. Alarm customers can also add and delete users, assign them remote arming privileges, or choose to receive notifications only during a defined time period.
Encrypted communications and password protection is utilized to ensure the safety and reliability of the service.

Uplink Remote is another example of how we have responded to the needs of the industry and requests of alarm companies to provide this service,"
