PCCW Global, a leading telecommunications service provider, and AlarmSecur, a major international Internet of Things (IoT) home security specialist, have collaborated to deliver an all-in-one and easy-to-use home security camera solution to market, providing consumers with a plug-and-play security device that includes remote and cloud features right out of the box, without having to insert or configure a local SIM connectivity service.
Connectivity is enabled and configured by AlarmSecur through PCCW Global’s Console Connect IoT service. The service makes use of advanced eSIM technology that connects to an extensive worldwide mobile network of 2G, 3G and 4G services and is also supported by PCCW Global’s own private international MPLS infrastructure.
The innovative bundled home security solution enables consumers to purchase an all-in-one package of AlarmSecur’s S6 or S7 video intercoms with 6GB data on PCCW Global’s Console Connect IoT SIM cards, which will automatically and cost-effectively connect the device to existing mobile operator networks almost anywhere in the world. This bundled connectivity correspondingly unleashes a wealth of advanced device security features that include remote monitoring and AI-based cloud services such as optimal face recognition and tracking.
The new bundled home security solution made its international debut at CES 2021 on January 11, 2021.
Mr. Roderik van der Touw, CEO, AlarmSecur, said, “Together with PCCW Global, we have created a new solution that provides extra convenience, ease-of-use and a one-stop-shop experience to our customers. PCCW Global has also provided a service portal for us to manage SIM connectivity and to facilitate charging and top-up of the connection usage.”
Mr. Craig Price, Senior Vice President, Mobility Products and Marketing, PCCW Global, said, “We are proud to work with AlarmSecur, and together we have demonstrated how IoT products can be produced and ‘born connected’ internationally, without any hassles.”
