Honeywell joined the Crestron Electronics, integrated partner program. Honeywell's participation means security installers can integrate enhanced models of the company's popular VISTA alarm panels into any home or business controlled by a Crestron automation system. The enhanced VISTA product range includes the VISTA Rev 4.0 and higher burglary panels, and the VISTA fire burglary panels.
Crestron is a manufacturer of advanced control and automation systems that supports security, audio/video, HVAC, lighting and other controlled devices. The company's integrated partner program includes several manufacturers from diverse markets. Its open platform approach allows partner manufacturers' products to perform to their specifications as plug-and-play devices in a Crestron system.
"Home automation is becoming more comprehensive every day, which means interoperability is critical to the integrator's job," said Linda Cortese, Commercial Products Senior Manager, Honeywell. "Because these VISTA panels are compatible with Crestron systems, Honeywell dealers have even more opportunities to increase sales, attract new customers and differentiate their businesses."
