Honeywell will highlight its latest security and fire products at ISC West 2019, April 10-12 in Las Vegas. Attendees can test and learn more about security and fire solutions with streamlined operational efficiency that provide automated control, real-time response, predictive analytics and flexible integration that ultimately help reduce operational costs and increase revenue for end users. “Safety and security are critical aspects of the connected building,” said Pete Lau, President, Honeywell Commercial Security. “We pair the latest advancements in hardware and software to provide customers with integrated security solutions that help keep people and places safe and secure. We are working to develop powerful, comprehensive security products that are easy to integrate and manage from anywhere.” OmniAssure Touch access control readers Honeywell will feature its first all-in-one BDA system, an emergency communication solution Honeywell’s integrated technologies demonstrate all aspects of its security and life safety systems in a single location, providing end users with a comprehensive picture for decision making. Among the technologies on display include OmniAssure Touch, a new range of passive intent access control readers compatible with Honeywell's existing security suites including WINMAG, WIN-PAK and Pro-Watch. Honeywell will also feature its first all-in-one Bi-Directional Amplifier (BDA) system, an emergency communication solution that minimises response time under critical situations with full support across Honeywell’s family of life safety brands. “Honeywell is highly focussed on delivering life safety innovations that leverage connectivity to help create a smarter and safer world,” said Samir Jain, Product Marketing Leader, Honeywell Fire. “Our objective is to equip customers with life safety systems that provide the earliest detection, enable the fastest response as well as centralise decision making and management.” Featured security technologies include: OmniAssure Touch, a range of access control readers that provide security against credential cloning and reader tampering, increase operator productivity when deploying mobile credentials and is interoperable with a range of credential technologies and panel communication protocols. The passive intent access control readers help people get into an area faster – just with the touch of a finger – no swiping of a card or a phone is necessary. MAXPRO Network Video Recorders (NVR), an open, flexible and scalable IP video surveillance system that supports simultaneous recording, live monitoring, and search and system management for up to 128 IP cameras. equIP series cameras, a family of IP video security cameras that feature low-light capability, a simplified user experience and quick installation for use in enterprise installations. NDAA Compliant Cameras and Recorders, a complete line of NDAA-compliant cameras, recorders, viewers and mobile app with end-to-end video encryption. ADPRO iFT Gateway, a low-cost IP video multi-service platform offering four IP channels of video transmission with the option to easily add ADPRO analytics and event recording via MicroSD card; the platform is ideal for small to medium business applications with full remote monitoring, command and control from anywhere via the ADPRO mobile app, iTrace. Featured fire technologies include: SWIFT with Activation and Notification, is a complete Class A commercial wireless fire detection system that detects and responds to a fire like its wired counterparts while providing installation flexibility in a wireless format. OSI-R Reflective Smoke Imaging Beam Detector designed specifically for large, open spaces that pose unique challenges to traditional fire detection due to environmental nature and limitations. Bi-Directional Amplifier/ERCES (BDA), emergency communication system designed to enhance in-building radio frequency in challenging environments during crucial moments to ensure the safety of first responders and lives of those they rescue. Unified Notification Platform (UNP), a mass notification ecosystem solution that enables the efficient sharing of important information during a critical situation by centralising fragmented systems and process into one platform. PS Series, a line of power supplies that adds more flexibility and variety for meeting installation and servicing requirements that is available through the Honeywell family of brands, including: Fire-Lite, Silent Knight, Farenhyt Series, GW/FCI and NOTIFIER.
Honeywell, a pioneer in Connected Buildings, announced its advanced smoke detection technology – capable of detecting and reporting smoke at its inception, before a fire develops – can now integrate with some of the most widely used fire panels in commercial buildings without the need for additional hardware or wiring. Combining Intelligent VESDA-E detection technology with NOTIFIER and Gamewell-FCI fire systems allows owners and operators to easily upgrade Connected Buildings to improve occupant safety. “The true measure of innovative technology in this industry is the ability to keep people safe faster and smarter, and VESDA has proven itself in this area for decades,” said Samir Jain, general manager at Honeywell Fire Americas. “Combining this advanced detection technology with proven legacy brands like NOTIFIER and Gamewell-FCI shows exactly what a smart building fire detection system looks like.” Prior notification about potential fire The Intelligent VESDA-E detector resides on the Signaling Line Circuit (SLC) loop of a fire panel and directly communicates with NOTIFIER and Gamewell-FCI fire systems. Unlike traditional spot detectors, VESDA-E’s patented technology actively draws in air from the environment and can notify building staff to potential fires before they develop. The VESDA portfolio is the most widely used advanced smoke detection technology in telecommunications and data centre applications The technology is ideal when very early warning of a potential fire is needed and for highly secure environments where routine maintenance and servicing would disrupt daily operations. The VESDA portfolio, which Honeywell acquired from Xtralis in 2016, is the most widely used advanced smoke detection technology in telecommunications and data centre applications. It also is increasingly used in the healthcare, education, retail, logistics and transportation industries. Improving safety of building occupants From advanced fire protection solutions to smarter security capabilities, Honeywell helps owners and operators leverage building connectivity to simplify management of increasingly complex building environments and improve occupants’ safety. Honeywell’s portfolio consists of the most-trusted and best-known brands in the security and fire safety industries; each designed to be easy to use, install and maintain – even in the most demanding and critical environments. Being among the most widely used fire panels in commercial buildings, NOTIFIER and Gamewell-FCI customers can now maximise their protection capabilities with Intelligent VESDA-E technology.
