ATLANTA, June 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Numerex (Nasdaq:NMRX) announced today that Uplink Security's "Installer App" has received M2M Evolution Magazine's 2014 M2M Evolution Product of the Year Award. This new App simplifies the installation, activation and verification of alarm communication devices. The solution increases the accuracy of data entry for device set-up and reduces activation time. Uplink dealers and installers who use this new app operate more efficiently and effectively. The new app was designed, built, and powered by Numerex, a provider of on-demand and interactive machine-to-machine (M2M) enterprise solutions enabling the Internet of Things (IoT).

Available for Android and iOS, the Uplink Installer App enables technicians to wirelessly activate devices and check signal strength of Uplink's alarm panel solutions. Uplink Installer's unique scan-and-go barcode scanning feature automatically reads a device's serial number, thus eliminating manual data-entry errors while streamlining the installation process. The app reduces installation time by more than 10 minutes per customer by automating many installation and activation tasks. As a result, Uplink dealers and installers now can operate more efficiently, more effectively, and have greater flexibility in responding quickly to customers.

"We are extremely proud and honored to be recognized by our industry peers for the 2014 M2M Evolution Product of the Year Award," said Kelly Gay, President of Security Solutions for Numerex. "Our Uplink packaged solutions have long been the security industry's most trusted source of wireless alarm communicators and this award further validates our efforts to create a comprehensive and easy-to-use system."

"The solutions selected for the M2M Evolution Product of Year Awards reflect the diverse range of innovation driving the machine-to-machine industry today," said Carl Ford, CEO of Crossfire Media, a co-publisher of M2M Evolution Magazine. "It is my honor to congratulate Numerex for their innovative work and superior contribution to the rapidly evolving M2M industry."

"It is my pleasure to recognize the Uplink Installer App, an innovative solution powered by Numerex, that earned Uplink Security the 2014 M2M Evolution Product of the Year Award," said Rich Tehnrani, CEO, TMC. "I look forward to seeing continued innovation from Uplink and from Numerex in the future."
