Carlsbad, CA – August 15, 2013 (ASIS Booth 4201) – Linear, LLC a leader in access control, health and wellness and security solutions announces LinearLinc™ and nuLinc™, a cloud-based interactive service and hardware solution that provides remote arm-disarm and status functionality for legacy security systems via cellular, wireless or wired IP networks. The solution provides useful benefits for existing security system owners and recurring monthly revenue opportunities (RMR) for dealers.
LinearLinc is the first remotely-connected, cloud-based ‘turnkey’ monitoring management solution Linear has brought to the market. LinearLinc works with a wide array of wired security systems from all different brands, including those developed and installed before widespread adoption of the Internet.
With nuLinc and LinearLinc, dealers and central stations can also add incremental recurring revenue to their existing customer population and new customer installations. LinearLinc is an easy up-sell for dealers who want to offer customers remote management of their legacy systems, but are not interested in a purchasing a new system, or significantly upgrading components or panels.
Installing and commissioning a nuLinc communicator is simple, allowing alarm professionals to disconnect the alarm system from the Plain Old Telephone System (POTS) line and replace it with a secure, monitored cellular connection. Because nuLinc is a true take-over device, there’s no need to re-configure the entire security panel to communicate with the central station or LinearLinc.
Once installed, nuLinc offers customers bi-directional communication with their alarm panel via smart phone app or web browser to LinearLinc’s cloud-based servers. LinearLinc instantly distributes this signal to the central station, or back to the alarm panel, customer’s mobile applications, or web user interface. LinearLinc is also designed for future facilitation of live/recorded video monitoring and integration, control of automation devices, and environmental controls; all coveted features of modern security systems.

“Security system installers no longer need to completely replace an old system in order to upgrade it to meet the needs and lifestyle of the modern consumer,” said Duane Paulson, senior vice president of market and product development for Linear. “LinearLinc is an ideal gateway for dealers to earn RMR while upgrading existing customer’s security systems with high value ‘smart’ features for a low cost.”
