Honeywell Adds Members to Open Technology Alliance
Continuing its commitment to increase the interoperability of security technologies, Honeywell today announced seven new members have joined the Honeywell Open Technology Alliance. Formed in 2010, the alliance is comprised of physical security and IT manufacturers committed to developing open and integrated security solutions for end users. New members of Honeywell Open Technology Alliance include Exacq, LG, Oncam Grandeye, ImmerVision, Panasonic, Pelco and Sony.
Oncam Grandeye, an innovator in 360-degree imaging, worked with Honeywell to integrate its line of 360-degree IP cameras with MAXPRO VMS (Video Management System) and MAXPRO NVRs (Network Video Recorders) to improve the usability of its cameras with the video and security management platforms of Honeywell and other members.
“The open standards set by the industry have provided a sound framework to increase the interoperability of our products with nearly any third-party manufacturer,” said Vince Lupe, systems marketing leader, Honeywell Security Group. “Our open technology alliance advocates making our technologies work seamlessly with other manufacturer devices, helping the end-user customer maximize existing and newer technologies.
Honeywell Open Technology Alliance members work closely to improve the openness of their security and IT products to give end users more options when designing a security system. These technologies, such as cameras, video streamers, and recording and wireless devices can be built using open industry standards, such as PSIA and ONVIF, or programmed using modified protocols.
