Honeywell announced its security management software is leveraging an open software platform from Tridium, which enables the integration and interoperability of building automation systems for real-time monitoring and control of security, secondary fire and other applications.
Currently, Honeywell management integrates various security components, including visitor management, access control, IP and video surveillance, intrusion and communications such as intercom and mass notification technology. With the Tridium framework, Honeywell solution can easily integrate with other building automation systems, including secondary fire, lighting and heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems using the Honeywell SDK.
“Our collaboration with Tridium answers a market demand for further integration that results in cost savings that can be realized from economies of scale, time saved in application development and the ability to monitor everything from a single station,” said Carlos Lopez-Reyna, Product Marketing Manager, Honeywell Security Group. “Building owners want technology based on open standards without having to invest significant time, money and resources on system development and training due to operating on disparate platforms.”
