POE Single Door Controllers Added To Pro-Watch

Honeywell Systems Group : 14 February, 2012  (New Product)
Honeywell access control management system gains enhancements enabling the addition of single Power-over-Ethernet door controllers to the network
POE Single Door Controllers Added To Pro-Watch
Honeywell has released several software enhancements to its widely used Pro-Watch security management system that allow organisations to more easily add doors to their access control systems. By using a new Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) single-door controller, organisations can add one door at a time to an existing Pro-Watch system, which makes the technology more suitable for companies looking for a cost-effective way to expand their access control systems.

The new single-door controllers simplify access control system scalability by allowing users to connect up to 16
PoE reader modules, one door at a time. Expensive add-ons to an existing system are now a thing of the past.

Other Pro-Watch 3.81 software upgrades are designed to simplify installation and ease of use, as well as reduce costs and maximise system efficiency. The upgrades include:

* Software-based licence keys that eliminate the need for a hardware USB dongle to ensure the integrity of the licence and maintain compatibility with virtualisation and other IT-centric solutions.

* Inclusion of the S-Net protocol on the PW-6000 provides a smooth migration path from legacy Star I controllers to current technology, which allows end users to leverage existing security investments.

*
Virtualisation support with VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V, which enables an organisation’s IT staff to host Pro-Watch as a virtual server, which reduces server management expenses and service interruptions.

“We’ve been hearing from our customers that they want simpler ways to upgrade their access control, but they also want affordability,” said Luisa Aymet, product marketing manager EMEA, Honeywell Security Group. “This new
PoE controller meets both of those needs because the installation is greatly simplified and users don’t have to buy more hardware than they need.”

Additionally, Pro-Watch 3.81 features open integration with the Honeywell Software Development Kit (HSDK), which enables increased interoperability between Honeywell technologies and products from third-party manufacturers who participate in the Honeywell Open Technology Alliance (HOTA) programme. The compatibility of Pro-Watch with the HSDK allows easy integration with larger building control systems such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and other building management technologies to drive energy savings.  Pro-Watch also integrates various security components including visitor management, IP and video surveillance, intrusion, and communications such as intercom and mass notification technology.

“We understand that cost containment, enhanced profitability and return on investment are all important for our customers,” Aymet said. “Pro-Watch offers an open architecture platform that offers advanced levels of integration and greatly increases our customers’ ability to achieve their financial goals.”

The new
PoE single-door controller is available to support the Pro-Watch suite, including Enterprise, Corporate, Professional and Lite editions.
