Olarm launches the Olarm LINK | App for Garage Doors, Gates, Booms and more
Jul 4, 2023
Building on the success of smart-enabling, monitoring and controlling alarm panels and electric fences, Olarm has used its expertise in smart automation to create a new solution for Olarm customers to integrate their gates, garage doors, pumps and other electrical products with their Olarm APP and Olarm PRO communicator.
With the Olarm LINK, users can now smart-enable and control more devices from their phone, with AI-based state detection and real-time notifications.
Next-generation smart monitoring
Olarm LINK offers end users and response companies powerful compatibility for more possibilities, turning almost any motorised device into a digitally controlled, AI-enabled smart device.
“Customer usability, simplicity and reliability are at the heart of Olarm. The Olarm LINK includes our SmartInput AI technology, enabling us to build smart integrations into gates and other traditionally dumb devices. Paired with Olarm PRO, the system creates remote control and management solutions that are load shedding resilient,” said Chris Hall, Olarm Commercial Director.
The Olarm LINK
The Olarm LINK broadens the scope of what the Olarm PRO and Olarm PRO 4G smart communicator can connect to, transforming everyday objects into valuable smart devices using SmartInput AI to create a simple and easy integration for approved devices with two-way app functionality.
“We saw the need in the market for a multi-purpose smart controller that solves diverse integration requirements in a single device,” said Justin Zondagh, Olarm’s CTO.
The Olarm LINK provides end users with smart sensing and control over multiple systems through a single app. A popular use case is for controlling gates and garage doors. Olarm LINK not only does that but, also knows when they were opened and by whom.
For alarm receiving centres, estates and monitoring companies can now add multiple sensing Inputs and outputs to a variety of products over a wide geographic area with real-time information. All are connected to customers’ Olarm APP for unified control.
How the Olarm LINK works
The Olarm LINK can be used for a wide range of applications:
● Devices: gates, garage doors, lights, booms, doors, pumps and more.
● Monitoring status: open, closed, AC fail, battery status, tamper and alarm.
● Controlling a device: on, off, latch, pulse, open and close.
Main features include:
Seamless smart property to control room experience
Six I/O Ports and two relays
DIN rail mountable with tamper detection
Multiple communication technologies, including 2G, 4G and Wi-Fi (paired with an Olarm PRO)
Wi-Fi enables customers to connect in areas where mobile coverage is unreliable, such as during load shedding
Olarm-managed SIMs remove the hassle of managing top-ups and prepaid sims
Can be configured to route signals into your control room via contact ID
Remote OTA (over-the-air) firmware updates
Reliable connectivity: 5-layer connectivity – maximum reliability during power outages and network failures
Additional value: Integrate with existing systems for a security-first smart solution
Easy Installation: Simple to install using Olarm’s online training and support
Monitor and control: manage access and see device status
What happens during load-shedding?
Olarm is manufactured and engineered in South Africa, where the need for reliable connectivity is well understood, especially during times of regular power outages. In order to achieve reliable connectivity, the Olarm LINK leverages the Olarm PRO’s range of connectivity technologies, including Olarm-managed 4G SIM cards and Wi-Fi. The Olarm-managed SIM cards are included as part of the Olarm subscription, so you need not worry about purchasing or expiring data.
Olarm PRO & Olarm LINK are available direct from Olarm and distribution partners.
