DEAN Lance has joined Australian-owned provider of interactive security and automation technologies, SecureNet Technologies. In his new role, Lance will be an active senior advisor and board member.

“Lance Dean has extensive security manufacturing, interactive applications, and security market channel knowledge, which is a highly-valued asset to SecureNet and known throughout the security industry,” says Andrew Wilson, SecureNet CEO. “His joining SecureNet will be instrumental in helping to shape our future.”

Lance is a veteran of 33 years in the security industry with 10 years at Honeywell before co-founding 2GIG Technologies in 2008. The 2010 launch of the 2GIG Go!Control panel turned 2GIG into a major industry player, having to date sold more than 3 million systems.

“I’ve been following SecureNet since first discovering them during my time at Nortek,” Lance said. “SecureNet’s disruptive solution is building great momentum within the smart home and security, MSO and quickly evolving Internet of Things [IoT] markets. 

“Now dealers have access to a quality alternative solution that provides a fully branded application and true platform customization for their unique offering of interactive services. I’m excited by the opportunity to join the SecureNet team, and I look forward to helping accelerate SecureNet’s momentum.”

The company was founded in Sydney in the early 1990s, unveiling its monitoring systems and platform in 2003. The SecureNet platform is a monitoring solution that can be utilized as a full automation system for central stations. 

It can integrate seamlessly with other leading central station automation software, providing legacy systems with the latest interactive services, as either a traditional on-premise solution or as a hosted service.

SecureNet took a major step forward in 2012, when CEO Andrew Wilson moved the corporate headquarters from Sydney, Australia, to Orlando, Florida. ♦
