Honeywell Launches RIM BlackBerry App for Total Access 2.0 Remote Services

Honeywell International recently launched a new application for RIM BlackBerry devices that enables live, look-in video viewing and easy fingertip control of Honeywell Security Systems.

The application allows users to control their security systems and view live, streaming video from any remote location. This version is the latest application of Honeywell’s popular Total Connect Remote Services, which allows consumers to utilize the Internet, smartphones, cameras and other compatible wireless devices to stay connected to their homes and businesses wherever they are.      

The new icon-based user interface allows users to control security system keypad functions and video viewing on BlackBerry devices with the press of a finger. They can view live video, record and store video clips, take snapshots or have video clips or pictures e-mailed to them upon an important event, such as a delivery taking place or a child arriving home from school.  The app replicates a physical keypad, letting users arm, disarm and silence their systems, bypass doors and control lights and garage doors. End-users can also receive alerts if motion is detected in designated indoor or outdoor areas in and around their home or business, if valuable objects have been moved or if extreme temperature changes have been detected when combined with Honeywell’s motion detectors, anti-theft and environmental sensors.

Total Connect 2.0 subscribers can download the app for free in the BlackBerryWorld store. For more information about Total Connect Remote Services, please visit www.mytotalconnect.com
