How are you contracting for and making money on an app?
    Smart phones have apps that can be tracked for GPS monitoring and panic buttons that will communicate with a central station for dispatch to family members or first responders.  How are you in the loop so that you can receive RMR for providing the service?
    More than likely the subscriber is signing up on the app.  Unless that app requires a dealer code so that you can be identified as the procurer of that subscriber, you're not in the loop.  The subscriber signs up on the app, on line sign up, agrees to pay directly to the provider of the app.  
    If the app requires a dealer code, in other words the public can't use the app service unless the user is signed up through a dealer, then the dealer is in line to get RMR.  The subscriber is most likely paying the app provider directly and then the dealer is getting paid by the app provider [who is more appropriately described as a "vendor" to the alarm industry].  The dealer needs a contract with the vendor, but not the end user because the end user is signing up for the service on the app on line.
    This same relationship structure can be found in DIY monitored systems and programs.  DragonFly is a good example.  As a DragonFly dealer all you are really doing is referring an end user to the DragonFly website, which referral is through your website, provided by DragonFly.   DragonFly then identifies you are the referring source and includes you in the RMR it collects from the end user.  So it's DragonFly that has the "contract" with the end user, not you, and you have a contract with Dragonfly.
    Another scenario however does require that you have a contract with the subscriber.  You may be providing an app or Internet service provided by a vendor as part of your security system installation and service, or even DIY sale with monitoring services.  A good example of this is alarm.com services.  In that case you would have the contract directly with the subscriber.  The contract you would use would be the Residential All in One or the Commercial All in One.   If the sale is a DIY system that you contract for monitoring then you're probably going to need the Nationwide DIY agreement.  If you're offering PERS, with or without GPS tracking, you're going to need the Nationwide PERS agreement.  The home base systems can communicate to subscriber smart phones giving the subscriber the option to ignore or request a central station to dispatch.  
    You have a lot of options when you decide which equipment and services you will be promoting, selling and monitoring.   You can set it up so that the subscriber goes directly through the Internet, through a vendor, pays the vendor or pays you.  If your choice is to make RMR and maximize the RMR then you'll need our Standard Form All in One Agreement.
