Honeywell Releases Newest Managed Access Control System

Honeywell has released the WIN-PAK CS 4.2 managed access control system, which lets security dealers provide a wider range of value-added services to all types of organizations while reducing their installation and service costs.

WIN-PAK CS 4.2 takes the complexity and cost out of maintaining an access control system by moving the operating software and server hardware from the customer's site to the dealer's data center, providing operational cost savings and reducing capital expenses for dedicated computers or servers. Dealers benefit because they can create new sources of recurring monthly revenue (RMR) by delivering more value-added services to their customers including photo-ID badging, video verification of alarms and events, and enhanced report functionality from the new web interface.

"Companies want to simplify their security management and increase the value it brings to their businesses, and managed security services can help achieve this goal," said John Smith, senior marketing manager at Honeywell Security Products Americas. "Having to dedicate security staff to manage the system, create photo-ID badges and provide updates to the access control software and server hardware are all time-consuming tasks for staff. WIN-PAK CS 4.2 lets dealers take these tasks off their customers' hands and payrolls while helping streamline business operations. These services are also a great way to create long-lasting customer relationships and reduce attrition."

Photo-ID Badging as a Service: Badge printers are expensive and cost-prohibitive or organizations with fewer than 100 employees. By providing badging services, security dealers can reduce the investment it takes for organizations to issue photo-IDs to employees. It's a service that provides more value to the customer by streamlining business operations and strengthening security procedures.

Redesigned Web-based Interface: The new web-based interface provides users with the required functionality to manage day-to-day business without the hassle of installing expensive onsite software. Through the web-based interface, organizations can monitor their system's status, control doors, manage users, create customized report templates and automatically run reports, access video tutorials, and generate card audit trails and operator action reports.

Video Verification: Video verification allows dealers to receive access control alerts and notifications tied to video events. Dealers can determine whether the alert is a potential threat and dispatch the appropriate authority to handle the situation. This can save organizations money by reducing false alarms and reduce law enforcement response times by verifying that the threat is real.
