Southwest Microwave is pleased to announce the availability of a new INTREPID Integration plugin from Honeywell Building Solutions, providing high-level interface between Honeywell’s Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI) intelligent building automation and enterprise management system, and Southwest Microwave’s INTREPID Series II perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS).

is pleased to announce the availability of a new INTREPID Integration
plugin from Honeywell Building Solutions, providing high-level interface between Honeywell’s Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI) intelligent building automation and enterprise management system, and Southwest Microwave’s INTREPID Series II perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS).
The EBI / INTREPID II Interface, compatible with Honeywell’s EBI R430 and EBI R500releases, offers interface to the INTREPID MicroPoint II Fence Detection System, MicroTrack II Buried Cable Detection System and MicroWave 330 Digital Microwave Link. This powerful integration enables the flexibility of centralized administration of any or all of the INTREPID Series II PIDS systems for a range of security-sensitive applications.
The Honeywell EBI / INTREPID II Interface incorporates Southwest Microwave’s Remote Polling Module II (RPM II) SDK, an application layer protocol / hardware module package, designed to provide network-based large or multi-site facilities with simplified high-level integration between head-end control or monitoring systems and INTREPID Series II sensors or auxiliary devices.
With the RPM II protocol, only the RPM II hardware module is queried by the EBI application. The RPM II serves as Pollmaster – polling all INTREPID Series II sensors and auxiliary devices connected to its communications port for status, and communicating this information to EBI via TCP/IP network connection.
Honeywell’s EBI / INTREPID II Interface operates through EBI’s Security Manager, which protects people, assets and intellectual property through security monitoring, access control and surveillance devices. The plugin provides comprehensive alarm management, allowing operators to manage active intrusion and diagnostic alarms from INTREPID sensors for appropriate action. Users can also tie camera presets to specific INTREPID detection zones to enable immediate visual assessment of alarms and optimize response time.
Honeywell Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI) is a comprehensive, network-based solution for intelligent building automation and enterprise management. Using flexible architecture and open industry standards, EBI integrates existing building systems to streamline processes and optimize building performance, enhancing safety, security and comfort for building occupants.
Southwest Microwave offers SDK documentation to third-party developers at no charge for INTREPID fence, buried cable and microwave intrusion detection systems, enabling high-level interface of these solutions to security and video management systems or other custom control applications.
