Honeywell Unveils Enhanced Security Management Platform

One of the exciting aspects of large industry gatherings like this week’s ASIS 2012 is that it is the occasion smart companies use to announce big news and launch new products and services. Industry giant Honeywell did just that, timing the release of its flagship Pro-Watch 4.0 security management platform with the event.

The enhanced platform, which allows large companies to easily manage complex systems that tie together access control, IP video surveillance, intrusion detection and building management technology for tighter security and increased productivity, now includes new features such as support for wireless readers from Ingersoll Rand Schlage, new compliance reporting functions and Web-based alarm and event management capabilities. Meanwhile, the company has also refreshed the platform’s look and feel by restyling its graphical user interface with new icons and improved navigation for a more user-friendly experience.

“Optimizing business by using integrated systems is the new reality for most enterprise-level organizations,” said Vince Lupe, Honeywell’s Enterprise Segment director. “Linking functions like HR, building management and compliance with security was once considered a cost of doing business, but Pro-Watch 4.0 can make it a business tool. That type of functionality gives integrators an opportunity to provide more value to their customers.”

Commercially available in North America on Sept. 28, the Pro-Watch 4.0 system features integration to Ingersoll Rand’s Schlage AD-400 wireless readers, which are designed to allow users to more easily protect remote entryways that were previously difficult to reach with wired readers. Additionally, the Pro-Watch Compliance Report Manager and advanced badging -- features that give users the ability to easily create and manage employee access cards and create custom statistical and transaction reports -- are  standard offerings in the new release. The system also allows users to access alarm and event data through any Internet-connected device and enables quick threat detection by integrating with the latest version of Honeywell’s IP-based video management system, the MAXPRO® VMS R300.
