OnTech Smart Services Partners With Google and Amazon To Compete With Integrators

By Joey Walter, Published Sep 25, 2020, 10:05am EDT (Info+)

A pain point for many homeowners to use consumer security and surveillance is installing and maintaining it. Google (Nest) and Amazon (Ring) have partnered with DISH Network's OnTech Smart Services to attempt to solve that.

We spoke to OnTech and examine the offering in this note including comparing how this might impact integrators, most notably the recent Google / ADT partnership and Amazon 'Pro' Installs.

Amazon and Google can't get deep enough into your home, vehicle, smart devices, physical and digital presence, to build your digital twin profile. A digital profile they own, control and indiscriminately sell, in bits and bytes to the highest bidders. Why wouldn't they see security and home control as just another path to follow and door to open and means to parlay their seemingly almost unlimited capital and insatiable appetite to dominate any market they enter.

They're both already-dominant CDNs (content delivery network services) with very little, if any, real oversight of their Internet dominance. Similar, in scope and monopoly Internet presence, is the incumbent cable companies. They, however, monopolize the infrastructure (cabling) side of the Internet, although a blurring of the line happens on occasion between both. What's left after the CDNs (content delivery services side) and the monopoly cable companies (infrastructure side) reach their goal of unrestricted infrastructure and content delivery service control? The most recent large scale move being Google initiating what many believe to be its preliminary move toward acquiring ADT.

A financial milking-phase beyond anything the world has ever witnessed from an allegedly "free market", "free enterprise", "entrepreneurial driven", "small business advocating", "capitalistic ideologue-led" telecommunication industry. A telecommunication industry going on decades' long immunity from anti-trust violations. A telecommunication industry devoid of any Net Neutrality consciousness (restraint against its use of blocking, throttling, paid prioritization, or otherwise unfair and unscrupulous use of the Internet not in the interests of its "users" and taxpayers). A telecommunication industry having no thought of fear of a democratic government, like ours, would do anything to hold it responsible for protecting an unsuspecting taxpaying public/consumer "users" in these same critical communication connectedness matters we've come to rely upon for our #InternetAccess.
