This year at IFSEC & FIREX, Honeywell will unveil a series of new products across its building technology and home security solutions portfolios that enable greater safety, security, comfort and efficiency for connected buildings and homes. Smart technology in homes and offices As the connected ecosystem grows, smart technologies in offices and homes generate and analyse vast amounts of data in real-time. Honeywell’s connected portfolios allow home owners and business managers to use these data insights to make quicker, more informed decisions about how to most effectively operate and protect their buildings and property. Honeywell’s connected building product advancements on display at IFSEC include integrated video solutions and advanced detection technologies that help businesses operate more efficiently and effectively, while ensuring the safety of their employees and assets. New IP video solutions portfolio Honeywell’s new portfolio of IP video solutions empowers site staff to be more productive by providing greater insight and control across the facility. With a connected Honeywell system, staff are informed 24/7 of the status of their system, and alerted immediately when an alarm is triggered so they can take appropriate action. With end-to-end solutions for different budgets, the range includes advanced features including recording failover, facial and audio detection, and EDGE analytics on ONVIF-compliant 4K Ultra HD and H.264 cameras. These products also feature enhanced forensic capabilities, supporting integration with Honeywell’s Xtralis IntrusionTrace video content analytics and ADPRO iFT Series NVR+ solutions. For those looking to protect harsh environments, the new range also includes explosion and corrosion proof thermal cameras with temperature monitoring. Honeywell’s new portfolio of IP video solutions empowers site staff to be more productive by providing greater insight and control across the facility Latest enterprise fire solutions Honeywell will also demonstrate the latest enterprise fire solutions at IFSEC, including their new Xtralis VESDA-E VEP and VEA detectors. The VESDA-E VEP detector yields 1.5 times greater sensitivity and offers six times better dust rejection than the previous generation of products, significantly reducing the potential for nuisance alarms and reducing related customer costs. VESDA-E VEA works by dividing a protected space into sampling locations, enabling the localisation of possible causes of fire for faster incident response. Both detectors feature built-in Wi-Fi for remote detector access from smart devices to review and monitor status in real time. For smaller sites, FAAST XS aspirating smoke detectors deliver highly accurate very early warning fire detection. Connected home solutions With Honeywell’s broad portfolio of connected home solutions, homeowners have complete control over their comfort and security wherever, whenever they want it. Honeywell’s connected devices provide a simple way to ensure the safety of loved ones and to know what is happening in and around the home, even when away. At IFSEC this year, Honeywell will extend its connected home offering with Total Connect Box, a new professionally-installed, self-monitored wireless security system for the residential market. Total Connect Box is supported by Total Connect Pro Manager, a maintenance tool that allows installers to perform diagnostics and offer cost-effective maintenance services to homeowners remotely, so homeowners can get the best out of their Total Connect Box system. With Honeywell’s portfolio of connected home solutions, homeowners have complete control over their comfort and security wherever, whenever they want it Videofied Video Live Verification For homeowners that choose professionally monitored security systems, Honeywell has also launched its wireless Videofied Video Live Verification with Monitoring Systems. The new MotionViewer PIR sensors are wireless and equipped with the Video Live function that allows the instant transmission of video to the alarm receiving centre in the event of an alarm, enabling swifter response to genuine alarms and eliminates unnecessary intervention and call outs to false alarms. It also provides homeowners greater peace of mind with the ability to view their homes live anytime day or night. “Advanced technology solutions have the power to turn buildings and homes into responsive assets, linking disparate devices and management systems to create truly connected, intelligent buildings that span the most demanding applications,” said Dino Koutrouki, vice president and general manager, Security and Fire EMEA, Honeywell Home and Building Technologies. “But systems shouldn’t be connected just to be connected. They should optimise a person’s daily routine, whether at home or work, to improve safety, security and peace of mind.” Honeywell will demonstrate its latest technologies and innovations in an integrated Control Room, on display at stand D250-300 at IFSEC London, 20-22 June 2017.
