Latest Pro-Watch iteration from Honeywell boosts situational awareness

HONEYWELL IS launching the latest variant of its Pro-Watch Integrated Security Suite, including Pro-Watch 6.0 and the Pro-Watch Video Management System R750, along with the 35 Series cameras which round out its portfolio of cameras providing a greater emphasis on cyber security and compliance.

“We’re working to provide our customers with security systems that go beyond protecting property and staff to support operational resiliency,” explained Daraius Patell, vice-president and general manager of commercial security at Honeywell Building Technologies.

Patell added: “Our solutions automate routine tasks to help enable security personnel to spend more time on high-value activities and less time navigating systems, while also prioritising our customers’ ongoing cyber security and compliance needs.”

Honeywell Pro-Watch 6.0 provides automated incident workflows and system health dashboards to further reduce operational costs and enable the stronger compliance demanded by highly regulated industries, without adding any work for security teams. It also provides information-driven and focused responses to help improve uptime.

Key benefits and new features include the following:

*Improved situational awareness

Provides Salvo views without a bounding box and allows security operators to access incident reports with evidence attachments. Operators can also manage both access and video control through a unified mobile app

*Increases productivity

Features enhanced alarm management functionality, in turn allowing operators to search, filter and roll-up events by severity and time

*Improves ease of integrations with an open platform

Integrates across Honeywell’s access control platforms and features native integration to Honeywell Vindicator panels, offering military-grade intrusion detection capabilities. Also works with third party platforms including the latest version of Idemia Morphowave biometric readers

User-friendly platform

Pro-Watch Video Management System R750 is a feature-rich, user-friendly video management platform which controls video sub-systems to collect, manage and present video in a clear and concise manner.

It also intelligently determines the capabilities of each sub-system across various sites, allowing video management of digital video devices through a unified configuration and viewer.

Key benefits and new features include the following:

*Reduces total cost of ownership

Supports integration with third party cameras, eliminating the need for separate wiring and cabling. It comes with a feature-rich web client (ie Intelligent Command) that minimises the cost of upgrades

*Improves productivity

Maximises the viewing capability of critical, essential or vulnerable areas through GPU rendering that allows the ability to view more cameras by a single NVR workstation, thereby helping to reduce overall cost

*PTZ priority

Provides uninterruptable PTZ operations to help improve situational awareness for those organisations with a high number of PTZ cameras

Cyber security and compliance

Designed with cyber security very much in mind, the 35 Series cameras work with video systems that comply with US legislation (ie NDAA Section 889 Part B). The 35 Series models round out Honeywell’s full range of cameras that provide a greater emphasis on cyber security and compliance.

The higher-resolution IR cameras cover larger areas, both day and night, with smart human and vehicle motion detection designed to reduce false alarms.

Key benefits and new features include the following:

*Lowers cost of liability and regulatory compliance

Provides PCI-DSS compliance as well as secure by default certification and also features TLS1.2 video stream encryption

*Improves efficiency and effectiveness

Supports audio and alarm interface for local alarm integration and includes smart motion detection based on human and vehicle movement in order to reduce the number of false alarms

*Reduces operating and configuration costs

SD card slot provided in all models to enable local storage with encryption, while multiple mount accessory availability reduces the total installation time and the unified GUI assists in reducing costs associated with training
