INNER Range has announced that a new partnership with New Zealand-based Patriot Systems to distribute Patriot Security monitoring software in Australia. 

Inner Range says the move for an attractive alternative for start-up central stations which will benefit from the combined research and development collaboration of Inner Range and Patriot Systems.

Leveraging the power and sophistication of the Patriot central station software suite, Integriti and Concept systems will be controlled directly from the Patriot alarm response screen. New features including IP alarm reporting, CCTV and video monitoring, along with remote arm/disarm and door control, plus a host of new feature-rich, seamless integrations between Patriot and Inner Range products to be released going forward.

In key ways, this alliance recognises the growing importance of integration between hardware and software to enable the release of the full power of the latest electronic security systems. It also hints at the joint development of a cloud solution, though this is speculation.
