Honeywell connected security to reduce buildings’ operational cost

Honeywell has announced the release of Honeywell Integrated Security. The new access control technology, powered by the company’s Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI) management system, will enable organizations to integrate buildings and manage their system more efficiently with enhanced capabilities, mitigate business risk and provided an enhanced customer experience.

Honeywell Connected Security is a UL294–certified, Edge/IP-based door access controller that supports a broad number of cards and communicates on 128-bit length encryption, providing a highly secure system. Facility managers can now minimize points of failure with the help of Connected Security, thereby protecting the facility from security compromise by limiting the risk to just one door. It provides buffer to hold one lac event logs acting as contingency measure in case of network loss or system offline condition.

Single door controllers are a cost effective and scalable solution that can be connected over LAN and support up to 2000 readers and beyond with multiple servers. Combined with EBI, the technology allows seamless integration with video to realise maximum potential of the system and provide easy navigation for operators managing security, access control, surveillance and intrusion systems. This improves incident management as well as saves time and training cost.

Along with an improved user experience, Honeywell Connected Security allows support for Microsoft operating systems with tested EBI release. In addition, these Edge/IP door controllers can co-exist with existing IBMS (spell out) platforms allowing for improved incident management and one window operation. The roadmap includes supporting PSIA Open Protocol, OSDP readers and NFC allowing facility managers to save huge cost on replacement as technology updates.
