Company joins Crestron's integrated partner program

St. Paul, Minn. – January 20, 2009 - Sequel Technologies has announced the release of a first of its kind native Crestron IP Communication (CIP) security system and its membership in the Crestron Integrated Partner Program. The STPF-EIM-CRS module provides for simple, hassle-free integration of Sequel Technologies’ security systems with Crestron automation systems.

Aimed at saving integrators both time and money, the new module makes it easy to integrate any Sequel security system with any Crestron 2-Series control system at a native level. Once installed, the new module gives dealers security system programming and set-up tools in a format that will be familiar to Crestron programmers. The STPF-EIM-CRS also enables security central station reporting using the new Security Industry Association (SIA) DC-09 Internet reporting protocol or the Sur-Gard T-Link protocol. It can send system alarm and status information via email messages directly to any PC or mobile device and provides the user with a simple yet elegant GUI interface to alarm functions through web pages directly served up by the EIM to any standard browser.

"We are pleased Crestron choose Sequel to be one of the first Integrated Partners to develop a native Crestron IP communications device. This is the only native Crestron IP security system solution for custom installers to implement our products into the state-of-the-art Crestron control systems," said Duane Paulson, Sequel Technologies president. "With this module in place installers offer their customers seamless security functionality and can do so as quickly and easily as possible saving the installer both time and money."

"Security is an important part of virtually all Crestron installations," said Chris Wildfoerster, Crestron’s Director of Business Development. "This new native security interface provides our dealers with an easy to configure, robust security interface that seamlessly integrates with any Crestron control solution."
