Honeywell enhances its Total Connect mobile app

Updated app enables faster look-in video viewing in real time


MELVILLE, N.Y., Feb. 8, 2011 – Honeywell has enhanced their popular Total Connect mobile app to enable faster, higher-quality live, streaming video viewing on Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. With Total Connect Video Services, consumers can select from up to six cameras on their system. They can view live video, record and store video clips, take snapshots and look in on their homes, families and businesses from any remote location with or without a security system.

Advanced technology optimizes the connection speed to enable full-streaming, real motion video in MPEG-4 format when on a Wi-Fi connection. A simple up, down or diagonal swipe of the finger across the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch lets consumers effortlessly control their pan and tilt cameras. A unique double tap feature centers the camera on its axis—letting the viewer get a better look at a designated area and simplify navigation.

"This free updated app is ideal for Total Connect customers who want to view high quality video of their homes and businesses on the go," said Gordon Hope, general manager of Honeywell’s AlarmNet. "It has tremendous consumer appeal—letting Honeywell security dealers offer an enhanced, enjoyable remote video viewing experience to the huge number of customers who use Apple mobile devices as well as improve their retention and earn more recurring monthly revenue."

The updated app can be downloaded for free at Apple’s iTunes App Store. For more information about Total Connect Remote Services, please visit www.mytotalconnect.com.
