Honeywell is launching the latest iteration of its Pro-Watch Integrated Security Suite, including Pro-Watch 6.0 and Pro-Watch Video Management System (VMS) R750, along with the 35 Series Cameras which round out its portfolio of cameras that provide a greater emphasis on cybersecurity and compliance.

“We’re working to provide our customers with security systems that go beyond protecting property and staff to helping to support their operational resiliency,” said Daraius Patell, Vice President and General Manager, Commercial Security, Honeywell Building Technologies. “Our solutions automate routine tasks to help enable security staff to spend more time on high-value activities and less time navigating systems, while also prioritising our customers’ cybersecurity and compliance needs.”

Increasing situation awareness and staff productivity with integrated security solutions

Honeywell Pro-Watch 6.0, the latest iteration of the Honeywell Pro-Watch Integrated Security Suite, provides automated incident workflows and system health dashboards to further reduce operational costs and enable stronger compliance needed for highly regulated industries, without adding work to security teams. It also provides information-driven focused responses to help improve uptime. Key benefits and new features include:

●     Improves situational awareness: Provides Salvo views without a bounding box and allows security operators to access incident reports with evidence attachments; operators can also manage both access and video control through a unified mobile app

●     Increases productivity: Features an enhanced alarm management allowing operators to search, filter and rollup events by severity and time

●     Improves ease of integrations with open platform: Integrates across Honeywell access control platforms and features native integration to Honeywell Vindicator panels, offering military-grade intrusion detection capabilities. It also works with third-party platforms including the latest version of Idemia Morphowave biometric readers

Creating a user-friendly video management platform

Pro-Watch VMS R750, is a feature-rich, user-friendly video management platform which controls video subsystems to collect, manage and present video in a clear and concise manner. It also intelligently determines the capabilities of each subsystem across various sites, allowing video management of digital video devices through a unified configuration and viewer. Key benefits and new features include: 

  • Reduces total cost of ownership: Supports integration with third-party cameras, eliminating the need for separate wiring and cabling. It comes with a feature rich web client (Intelligent Command) that minimises cost of upgrades
  • Improves productivity: Maximises viewing capability of critical, essential or vulnerable areas through GPU Rendering that allows the ability to view more cameras by a single NVR workstation, helping to reduce overall cost
  • Features PTZ priority: Provides uninterruptable PTZ operations to help improve situational awareness for organisations with a high number of PTZ cameras

Providing video cameras that focus on cybersecurity and compliance

Designed with cybersecurity in mind, the 35 Series Cameras work with video systems that comply with US legislation, NDAA Section 889 Part B. The 35 Series rounds out Honeywell’s full range of cameras that provide a greater emphasis on cybersecurity and compliance. The higher-resolution IR cameras cover larger areas, both day and night, with smart human and vehicle motion detection to reduce false alarms. Key benefits and new features include:

  • Lowers cost of liability and regulatory compliance: Provides PCI-DSS compliance, secure by default certification, features TLS1.2 video stream encryption
  • Improves efficiency and effectiveness: Supports audio and alarm interface for local alarm integration, includes smart motion detection based on human and vehicle movement to reduce the number of false alarms
  • Reduces operating and configuration costs: Provides SD card slot in all models to enable local storage with encryption, provides multiple mount accessory availability to reduce the total installation time, unified GUI helps reduce training costs
