LOUISVILLE, Ky., Sept. 6, 2012 – Wireless access control support, streamlined credentials-management and reporting functions, and refreshed graphics highlight the enhancements in the newest version of Honeywell’ Pro-Watch 4.0 security management system.
The Pro-Watch system is Honeywell’s flagship integrated security management platform that allows large companies to easily manage complex systems that tie together access control, IP video surveillance, intrusion detection and building management technology for tighter security and increased productivity. Pro-Watch 4.0 includes new features such as support for wireless readers from Ingersoll Rand Schlage, new compliance reporting functions and web-based alarm and event management capabilities. Additionally, Honeywell has refreshed the platform’s look and feel by restyling its graphical user interface (GUI) with new icons and improved navigation for a more user-friendly experience.
“Optimizing business by using integrated systems is the new reality for most enterprise-level organizations,” said Vince Lupe, Honeywell’s Enterprise Segment marketing leader. “Linking functions like HR, building management and compliance with security was once considered a cost of doing business, but Pro-Watch 4.0 can make it a business tool. That type of functionality gives integrators an opportunity to provide more value to their customers.”
The Pro-Watch 4.0 system features integration to Ingersoll Rand’s Schlage AD-400 wireless readers, which allows customers to more-easily protect remote entryways that were previously difficult to reach with wired readers. Additionally, Pro-Watch Compliance Report Manager and advanced badging are standard offerings in the new release. These features give users the ability to easily create and manage employee access cards and create custom statistical and transaction reports. The system also allows them to access alarm and event data through any Internet-connected device, and enables quick threat detection by integrating with the latest version of Honeywell’s IP-based video management system – MAXPRO VMS R300.
The Pro-Watch 4.0 system is ideal for global, large multi-site facilities such as airports and seaports, higher education and healthcare campuses and corporate offices, and includes four editions that organizations can select depending on their sizes and needs:
• Pro-Watch Enterprise Edition is most-appropriate for global enterprises that are required to manage multiple security systems.
• Pro-Watch Corporate Edition is ideal for large organizations and campuses.
• Pro-Watch Professional Edition provides complete functionality for medium-sized organizations with up to 64 doors, or organizations that require regulatory compliance.
• Pro-Watch Lite Edition offers basic functionality for small offices with support for up to 32 doors, as well as Rapid Eye video technology.
Pro-Watch 4.0 will be demonstrated at ASIS 2012 – Honeywell Booth #1101 and will be commercially available in North America on Sept. 28. For more information, please visit: www.honeywellintegrated.com.
