(ORLANDO, FLA – October 22, 2020) – Konnected, an Internet-of-Things startup that’s connecting wired home security systems to smart home automation, announced that the brand earned an official Works with SmartThings (WWST) certification for its Konnected Alarm Panel product line.
“The idea for Konnected was born out of my personal desire to connect the sensors from my old wired alarm system to SmartThings. The enthusiasm we received from the SmartThings community early on was instrumental in bringing this product to market, ,” said founder, Nate Clark. “Receiving the official WWST certification from SmartThings has been a goal of ours from the beginning and validates our unique niche in the smart home marketplace.”
“As an official Works With SmartThings partner, we’ve been able to greatly streamline the install process, and it’s now easier than ever to retrofit an old wired alarm system to work with SmartThings,” says Clark. “SmartThings is by far the simplest, most user-friendly, and lowest cost smart home platform for Konnected users.”
The Konnected Alarm Panel and Alarm Panel Pro transform existing wired home security systems into one that can leverage the latest in smart home platforms and interconnectivity via WiFi with the Alarm Panel or Ethernet, WiFi, and PoE capability with the Alarm Panel Pro.
