Growing up in Silicon valley, the founders of Qolsys have spent a lot of time following consumer trends, including online and the fast growing mobile segment, they have noticed an opportunity to raise the bar in the residential security space. As outsiders Qolsys had no preconceived notions of what a security panel should look or act like, except that end users were ready for something more, similar to their smartphones and tablets. By leveraging these consumer trends and re-architecting the typical security state machine into an open compute platform we are able to bring to market an intuitive, attractive and robust solution that looks and acts more like a consumer friendly tablet but designed specifically for the security industry and the growing home control market.
Qolsys has been able to take a legacy experience or requirement and present a more elegant solution, meeting the needs of the dealer while providing a more intuitive and enjoyable experience for both the installer and end user. As we uncover existing industry norms we push ourselves every day to ask “why” followed by “can we do it smarter and make it better looking?” Companies like Apple and Google have raised the bar, on behalf of our partners and the end users we need to meet the challenge.
Qolsys launched the company at ISC West in 2013 and the rest is history. They now spend every day thinking of creative ways to improve the quality of life you enjoy. Quality of life systems. Its who we are, and what we do.
