Honeywell adds mobile capabilities to Performance Series DVR

Honeywell has announced new mobile remote access capability to its popular HRDP H.264 digital video recorder (DVR). The new Remote -View app allows users to view live video on their Apple iPhone® from CCTV surveillance systems that use Honeywell's HRDP H.264 DVR.Users download the free Remote-View app from the Apple iTunes store and set up connection parameters. Then, they simply select the DVR from a drop-down list and click Connect to see live video on their iPhone device. Instead of using a computer in order to bring up a GUI or web browser where they can dial in, the functionality is completely mobile."Today, almost everyone is carrying a wireless device of some sort," said Bill Durno, global product marketing manager, Honeywell. "This new app allows anyone with an HRDP H.264 DVR, Internet connectivity, and an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to see their office or home anytime, anywhere within the coverage area for their mobile device. We also expect to support additional mobile platforms to increase remote access capability in the near," added Durno.The HRDP H.264 DVR, part of Honeywell's cost effective Performance Series portfolio of video surveillance products, supports a feature set comparable to many high-end embedded DVRs but at a much lower price. The DVR offers H.264 video compression for clear crisp video and extended storage times. It also supports a user-friendly front panel control, mouse operation, and IR remote control, wizards for fast and easy setup, and graphical search engines to help operators find evidence video quickly. An internal DVD-RW and two USB ports make it easy for users to copy evidence video to portable media.The HRDP records at a rate of up to 200 ips PAL. When it detects motion, the HRDP can automatically boost the recording rate to capture additional details of the scene. It is ideal for a wide variety of surveillance applications requiring high image per second recording or for capturing maximum detail of activity through building entrances and exits, such as small to medium-sized retail, financial, warehouse, and educational facilities.For more information visit www.honeywell.com/security/uk/performance.Apple, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch are trademarks of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries.

Honeywell releases expanded line of value-added security cameras

Honeywell has released its Performance Series, the latest addition to the company's extensive portfolio of security cameras. The Performance Series includes new lines of indoor and indoor/outdoor mini-domes as well as bullet cameras, many with infrared (IR) illumination. The line is ideal for organisations looking for cost-effective surveillance for their security systems."Our customers, whether installers or end-users, represent a wide array of commercial environments, ranging from retail to banking to education, all of which have unique requirements for security systems," said Vineet Nargolwala, EMEA Managing Director, Honeywell Systems Group."The Performance Series adds to Honeywell's portfolio of IR and mini-dome cameras by offering our customers a simple yet solid design that's easy to install and operate. We're extremely excited about the Performance Series cameras and feel confident that we've positioned this line to appeal to customers who seek both performance and competitive pricing. Our portfolio now gives customers the option to choose from cameras with basic functionality, those with more advanced features, and those with extended IP-based network functionality."Most models in the Performance Series feature IR LEDs that activate when the ambient light drops below a user-defined threshold, enabling around-the-clock surveillance in extreme low-light applications. Crisp colour images are captured by day and clear black and white images at night. The series also includes models with vari-focal lenses that allow the cameras to adjust to a variety of distances."Some situations require high-end surveillance cameras with multiple functions, but many of our customers simply need a high-quality camera that reliably captures images. The Performance Series allows organisations to have the best of both worlds," continues Nargolwala.
