Honeywell launches enhanced Galaxy TouchCenter with Proximity Reader

Honeywell's new Galaxy TouchCenter Prox is an innovative and enhanced version of the popular Galaxy® TouchCenter keypad. The new integrated proximity reader is designed to reduce the number of false alarms and police call-outs due to operator errors such as incorrect PIN entry. The customer experience is simplified and the integration of the innovative proximity function means the keypad is now fully compliant with UK standards.The TouchCenter touch screen keypad with graphical display simplifies programming and provides a more intuitive experience for the end user. Unlike regular keypads, logs are much easier to read and analyse and the management of users and multi-area systems is more straightforward, enabling end-users to easily manage the system. If users prefer a more traditional MK7 keypad instead of the new interface, a simple button allows them to switch to a standard 32 character display.The Galaxy TouchCenter Prox also now incorporates a VGA high definition screen, allowing photo quality images to be displayed. This innovation, enabled by a simple SD card slot, provides a wealth of customisation options such as a family photo for a home owner or a company logo for a business. Installers can also use this tool to display their contact information and company logo on the keypad screen to drive sales and provide a quick point of reference for helpline numbers.The new keypad also gives users access to an on-screen easy-to-navigate help menu that can address operational problems that the user may experience, and reduce or eliminate unnecessary calls to the installer. The help menu allows the user to access information about the system on a 24/7 basis and also removes the need to store a printed instruction manual that is easily damaged or misplaced. "Since launching the Galaxy TouchCenter we have seen a strong demand from our customer base for touch screen technology," said Yves Pichon, Marketing Leader, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Honeywell Security Group. "As smartphones and other touchscreen devices continue to gain broad consumer acceptance, we expect this to be a key area of innovation and growth for the industry as a whole. Honeywell is excited to be at the forefront of this new trend."For further information on Honeywell's security solutions visit www.honeywell.com/security/uk

Galaxy Flex offers all the features of the Galaxy Dimension security solution in a fully compliant EN50131-1 Security Grade 2, PD6662:2004/2010 system.    For installers, Galaxy Flex ensures a faster and more cost effective installation.  Its robust plastic housing allows radio and communication modules to be mounted directly inside the product casing speeding up installation, and reducing the number of boxes and cabling required. In addition, the moulded design allows modules to be quickly clipped into place, and the hinged, removable lid offers flexibility during installation. Simplicity and ease of use are central to the Galaxy Flex programming functionality, which has a quick start guide and easy-to-navigate menu. The product also incorporates a ‘plug and play' feature, which automatically detects remote peripherals once the panel is powered up. This reduces training requirements and speeds up installation. Programming using a PC is also fast and simple using the Galaxy Flex intuitive Windows programming interface either directly via USB cable connection or remotely via Ethernet, GPRS or PSTN. Galaxy Flex also comes equipped with flexible communications and power options, with multiple dual path communications options that allow existing communication structures to be used for alarm signalling and remote servicing, and a variety of power connections available to meet installers' preferences. Galaxy Flex includes a range of intuitive and attractive end user interfaces such as the Galaxy TouchCenter keypad and the new MK8 keypad. All user interfaces have optional proximity operation so users will not need to remember a PIN code, thus reducing user errors, false alarms and potentially unnecessary engineer call outs.  Galaxy TouchCenter provides an attractive touch-screen interface, which simplifies operation with its intuitive graphical menu and on screen help files. Minimising disruption to home life or business operations is also central to the solution, featuring wireless options - based on Honeywell's patented bi-directional radio and Agile Routing technologies - to deliver reliable high security with rapid and unobtrusive installation. Galaxy Flex can also be managed and maintained remotely, allowing an installer to monitor an end user's alarm system, and respond quickly and appropriately to alarm activations.
