Video capabilities added to Honeywell’s 'Total Connect' offering

Security solutions provider Honeywell announced Thursday that it has added video capabilities to its Total Connect Remote Services.

The addition means that Total Connect users with IP cameras that use analytics can now receive e-mail with video clips when the camera is alerted by an incident in conjunction with the offerings traditional remote control capabilities and notifications. These video clips can be sent to web-enabled computers, as well as a BlackBerry, Apple iPhone or iPod touch.

Users can specify which events they want to be alerted to such as someone approaching the front door and can also program the system to detect motion in a certain area.

"Adding these new smart video capabilities to Total Connect provides that additional peace of mind for the home or business owner who is constantly on the go," said Gordon Hope, general manager for Honeywell’s AlarmNet communications business. "By providing this vital link back to the security system, these enhancements help ensure security remains top of mind for consumers while driving additional RMR for dealers."
