more on dealer concern 
    We received a requested Dealer Agreement from to sell, install, service and monitor systems within the ecosystem. It was not what we expected. We are a long time Honeywell Authorized Dealer. When I compared the two agreements (including the terms and conditions that must be written into our Subscriber contract!), we determined that the proposed agreement is unacceptable. I am aware that Resideo will be sending a new agreement to all Dealers very shortly and hopefully it will not resemble the proposal.
    Question – have you negotiated the agreement on behalf of an independent dealer?

    As far as I know the Dealer Agreement and the terms and conditions are non-negotiable. I hit a brick wall trying to talk to anyone about the terms. That's when I decided to give exactly what it wanted, a direct contract with the subscriber. That is accomplished with the rider we attach to the All in One. The rider makes it clear to the subscriber that any claim against must be subject to the terms and conditions. Claims against the alarm company dealer will be governed by the All in One or other Standard Form Agreement requires its dealers to indemnify That's not unique because other dealer programs are going to have the same requirement. What is different about, so far, is the requirement that the dealer agreement with the subscriber contain terms and conditions provided by Last time I looked, those terms were not as favorable to the dealer as the All in One terms. Even though could have relied on the terms in the All in One, it dictates that its terms and conditions apply. 
    The dealer continues to be protected by the terms in the All in One, and that's how it's going to stay for the foreseeable future.
