Honeywell has announced that its MAXPRO Cloud platform, the integrated security offering designed specifically for small-to-medium-sized (SMB) businesses, will be available in Europe. MAXPRO Cloud is hosted on Microsoft Azure and integrates access, intrusion and video surveillance data into a single user interface. With support for single or multiple locations, MAXPRO Cloud provides a new tool to secure facilities while simplifying security operations. MAXPRO Cloud MAXPRO Cloud is a flexible and scalable platform that enables customers to achieve more efficient safety and security, reduces IT infrastructure costs, and streamlines operations by empowering small-to-medium business owners to efficiently operate and access data from their access, intrusion and video systems. For example, a business with multiple sites can use MAXPRO Cloud to make decisions on access control remotely from a smartphone, instead of having to spend time accessing a desktop computer at a location. In addition, as the system is cloud-hosted there is no additional server or software to buy and manage. MAXPRO Cloud gives installers the opportunity to create new recurring monthly revenue from cloud-hosted systems, while providing an integrated security platform with lower installation and service costs. “With remote access management, SMBs no longer have to face costly downtime waiting for the correct person with the key to open facilities,” said Alessandro Araldi, vice president of global product management, Honeywell Home and Building Technologies. He further added, “Enabling customers to remotely monitor their environments through the cloud with Microsoft Azure, businesses can protect their critical assets through a cost-effective solution.” MAXPRO Cloud API Additionally, the MAXPRO Cloud application programming interface (API) will be available on the Honeywell Developer Portal, allowing Honeywell’s developer community to create custom apps. The Honeywell Developer Portal provides a comprehensive development environment, with state-of-the-art tools and APIs to enable and accelerate the creation of new services and innovative applications fully integrated with Honeywell platforms.

The new update allows integrators to connect Xtralis offerings with Honeywell Performance and HDZ Series cameras A new Honeywell software update makes it easier for security integrators to create complete remote monitoring systems for end-users. Xtralis Operating System update The Xtralis® Operating System update – XOa 3.2.33 – allows integrators to connect key Xtralis offerings with Honeywell Performance, equIP® and HDZ Series cameras. Combining these cameras with Xtralis’ ADPRO® platforms, FastTrace™ 2E remotely programmable gateway, the new iFT™ Series IP video NVR+, and HeiTel iVG™ video gateways, enables customised solutions for connected buildings. Honeywell and Xtralis integration “With the integration of Honeywell cameras and Xtralis operating systems, we can now offer enterprise facilities the option for an end-to-end remote monitoring solution,” said Alessandro Araldi, Vice President of Marketing, Honeywell Home and Building Technologies. “XOa 3.2.33 creates opportunity for dealers and installers to save money by remotely updating systems and through the simplistic integration with Honeywell cameras.” "With the integration of Honeywell cameras and Xtralis operating systems, we can now offer an end-to-end remote monitoring solution" Aside from a fast setup, free downloads from Xtralis xChange online licence portal allow installers to remotely and efficiently update systems already deployed in the field. Additionally, to expand on remote capabilities, Xtralis video content analytics (VCA) can be deployed on the ADPRO & HeiTel platforms to automatically detect security threats directly from Honeywell IP camera streams. Cost saving for installers The available security analytics include IntrusionTrace™ VCA, for powerful and configurable perimeter and intrusion threat detection and LoiterTrace™ VCA to detect loitering before a threat can escalate. When fully integrated, this creates a security environment that provides reliable detection, visual verification and remote response. Also available is SmokeTrace™ VCA, for remote video verification of a smoke threat and ClientTrace™ VCA for identifying and alerting customer interest at designated zones in a retail environment. In addition, the integration options also offer cost savings for installers. For example, Honeywell’s low-light camera technology performs optimally with Xtralis video analytics, without the need for external light sources to brighten the scene. Further, the cameras’ motorised focal zoom aids in set-up and calibration for installers.
