Honeywell extends connected home offering with Total Connect Box

IFSEC 2017 Installers of Honeywell home security and other residential products can now offer homeowners a wireless security system with the ability to conduct predictive maintenance services through the cloud. In June Honeywell launched Total Connect Box, a self-monitoring wireless security system for homes and small businesses, as well as a maintenance tool called Total Connect Pro Manager. Total Connect Box provides a compact security system that can be installed with both Ethernet and GPRS communicators, plus an optional Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module to minimise cabling.

When the alarm is triggered, homeowners receive an email alert, voice notification or a text message. More details can be accessed through a web application on the Honeywell cloud. The homeowner can remotely arm, disarm, or check the status of the security system from their smartphone or other device from any global location. With one or more CAMIR-F1 camera motion sensor, images can be recorded and stored in the Honeywell cloud. embedded content When installed by a security professional, Total Connect Box supports security peripherals including motion sensors, panic alarm buttons, smoke and carbon monoxide sensors. The system also alerts the customer to electrical main power failure, low battery and flood detection. Installers can also offer homeowners the ability to control their lighting and heating systems remotely using the Total Connect web app and Honeywell s smart plugs, which add automation capabilities at the electrical outlet. The app allows users to track power consumption, helping them to save energy and associated costs. Total Connect Pro Manager, also hosted in the Honeywell cloud, lets installers remotely access their customers Total Connect Box control panels to perform diagnostics, adjust configurations, and offer maintenance to customers on the go.

Installers can offer pre-emptive maintenance to customers, by alerting if a battery level is low on the homeowner s system, or a change of sensor location, for example. We wanted to create a dedicated self-monitoring solution offering real value to our security professionals, said Flavio Daffara, product marketing manager, security and fire, Honeywell Home and Building Technologies. That s why we developed new services for them using Honeywell Cloud, allowing them to easily and conveniently offer preventive maintenance services and home automation options to their customers.

Honeywell is unveiling a series of new products across its building technology and home security solutions portfolios at IFSEC and FIREX 2017. Honeywell s connected solutions are designed to help homeowners and business managers interpret and exploit the huge and growing volume of data generated by connected buildings. At IFSEC the building management systems giant will be showcasing integrated video solutions and advanced detection technologies. IP video Honeywell s new portfolio of IP video solutions empower site staff to be more productive by providing greater insight and control across the facility. With a connected Honeywell system, staff are informed 24/7 of the status of their system, and alerted immediately when an alarm is triggered so they can take appropriate action. With end-to-end solutions for different budgets, the range includes advanced features including recording failover, facial and audio detection, and EDGE analytics on ONVIF-compliant 4K Ultra HD and H.264 cameras. These products also feature enhanced forensic capabilities, supporting integration with Honeywell s Xtralis IntrusionTrace video content analytics and ADPRO iFT Series NVR+ solutions.

For those looking to protect harsh environments, the new range also includes explosion and corrosion proof thermal cameras with temperature monitoring. Fire Honeywell will be showcasing enterprise class fire solutions including Xtralis VESDA-E VEP and VEA detectors. Yieldsing 1.5 times greater sensitivity and offering six times better dust rejection than the previous generation of products, VESDA-E VEP detector reduces the risk of nuisance alarms and attendant costs. VESDA-E VEA works by dividing a protected space into sampling locations, enabling the localization of possible causes of fire for faster incident response. Both detectors feature built-in Wi-Fi for remote detector access from smart devices to review and monitor status in real time. For smaller sites, FAAST XS aspirating smoke detectors deliver highly accurate very early warning fire detection. Connected home Honeywell is unveiling a professionally-installed, self-monitored wireless security system for the residential market. Called Total Connect Box, it is supported by Total Connect Pro Manager, a maintenance tool that allows installers to perform diagnostics and offer cost-effective maintenance services to homeowners remotely, so homeowners can get the best out of their Total Connect Box system.
