Manufacturers Alliance

by msecadm4921

Honeywell announced it is developing new strategic relationships with security manufacturers to increase interoperability among third-party IP systems. Earlier this year, the company formed the Honeywell Open Technology Alliance, for sharing IP technology and forging collaborations.

Alliance members include Arquero, IProNet, Milestone Systems, Sureview Systems, Tridium and 3VR Security. There are several integrations in progress with other members.

Honeywell works with other security and IT manufacturers to integrate their IP cameras and systems with its flagship MAXPRO VMS (Video Management System). Likewise, third-party cameras, such as Axis, Panasonic, Pelco, Samsung, and other manufacturers can integrate into MAXPRO VMS.

“Our devices are now more compatible with management platforms from other vendors,” said Don Roberts, leader of strategic corporate accounts for Honeywell. “The compatibility offers integrators increased choice and flexibility when designing security systems and ultimately driving value for the end user. Our commitment to enabling IP security is vital to meeting industry demands for integrated security, situational awareness and operational efficiency.”

Honeywell is also involved in the Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA), a American-based global consortium of physical security manufacturers and integrators focused on promoting the inter-operability of IP-enabled security devices across the industry. The company is involved in the four working groups relating to security products: IP Video, Video Analytics, Recording and Content Management, and Area Control (Access/Intrusion).

As IP technology is incorporated into new designs, the standards embraced by the Open Technology Alliance enable manufacturers to bring new products to market more quickly, giving end users a wider choice of solutions to solve their security issues. “Open standards enable end users to integrate our products with their system without requiring expensive customisation,” said Honeywell’s Tom Brodsky, who participates in the PSIA Video Analytics working group.

The company is also an active member of ONVIF and will be introducing products compliant with the ONVIF standard. Honeywell strongly supports open architecture design, and the company’s involvement in the PSIA and ONVIF initiatives formalises its commitment to developing interoperability that will bring IP solutions to market more quickly.

Honeywell adds that its IP portfolio incorporates a video management platform and an offering of recording solutions — including the latest in IP-networks, data and video analytics that use open architecture. To learn more visit –
