Printer Friendly Introduces VoIPAlarm at the International Consumer Electronics Show and Explains Features of Its VAR Program.

LAS VEGAS --, The Broadband Alarm Company[R], today announced at the 2007 International CES that it is offering VoIPAlarm. The company also explained features of its value-added reseller (VAR) program.

The VoIPAlarm program targets alarm companies that want to expand their products and services without switching customers over to a different service or changing equipment. VoIPAlarm allows alarm companies to seamlessly integrate NextAlarm's unique patented monitoring services into their existing product and service offerings.

"VoIPAlarm provides alarm companies an Internet/VoIP solution to their customers," said Alex Elliot,'s founder and CEO. "In addition, the program allows the alarm company to maintain full control of their accounts at a lower cost than cellular back-up systems."

NextAlarm also has an active VAR program. Both the VAR program and VoIPAlarm offer the end user a rich suite of features. Both programs offer NextAlarm's ABN[TM] (Alarm Broadband Network), the industry's first low-cost broadband solution for security system monitoring. ABN allows alarm systems to be monitored via broadband Internet connections, and it works even if the customer only has VoIP phone service. When an alarm company uses VoIPAlarm, the signals transmit to NextAlarm via an ABN adapter, which are retransmitted to the central station of the alarm company's choice, or via a standard phone line. NextAlarm's ABN adapters are available to dealers and end users at a discounted price.

In addition, both the VAR and VoIPAlarm programs provide the end user NextAlarm's patent-pending E-Notify[TM] technology to set up alarm notifications that are received via e-mail or cell text message. E-Notify works over ABN or a regular phone line. For an added fee, additional enhanced features - such as Next Alarm's V-Notify Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system, e-mailed PDF signal histories and two-way voice service - are available to both dealers and end users.

NextAlarm's VAR program also includes fully UL-listed monitoring, including instant notifications by telephone, e-mail or short message service (SMS) when an alarm is triggered and dispatch of local police, fire department and paramedics. The VAR program also features online, web-based programming of compatible alarm systems and handles billing of end users.
