MB-Secure® Modular Platform Offers Flexibility and Scalability with User-Friendly User Interface: Choose Honeywell – Connect to Opportunity
Honeywell has announced it will launch its new generation intruder and access control panel MB-Secure® at Security Essen 2012, The World Forum for Security and Fire Prevention, taking place from 25th to 28th September 2012 in Essen, Germany. Installers and Honeywell partners can preview the latest Honeywell innovation on the Honeywell Stand 211 in Hall 3.0.
Under the theme “Choose Honeywell – Connect to Opportunity”, visitors to the Honeywell stand will be able to see first-hand products and solutions and learn about the opportunities and benefits that they bring to their businesses. A long-standing and experienced company in the security industry, Honeywell provides a breadth of innovative security solutions for the residential, small office, commercial and enterprise sectors. In addition to innovative solutions, Honeywell also offers support and training for its partners making Honeywell a trusted advisor for customers.
Honeywell will also showcase several enhancements to its security solutions at Security Essen: the new time and attendance terminal Tema-Voyager™ Compact, video surveillance solutions for large and small projects and a radar video surveillance system.
The new generation control panel MB-Secure is an open platform offering providing intruder and access control solutions. The basic components of the system include a hardware board running firmware allowing the required access control and security to be activated as required via license keys. This enables users to integrate and extend almost any function, from a simple extension of the intruder alarm system to the expansion into an integrated access control and video surveillance system, without the need to replace the main hardware. The system is also very scalable due to its modular structure. Users only have to buy the functionality they really need at a specific point in time as they can easily upgrade later making MB-Secure a cost effective solution. The main hardware is complemented by a newly designed and easy-to-use user interface.
“The use of static, inflexible security systems that have not changed over the years, clearly goes against the dynamic change in building utilization and security requirements that we are experiencing today,” said Horst Richter, Product Marketing Manager at Honeywell Security Group. “Therefore, more and more flexible systems are demanded which can be adapted easily and at a reasonable price to meet the changing security needs. Honeywell MB-Secure addresses this change, providing all functions of innovative security systems as one open platform.”
Tema-Voyager Compact time and attendance terminal enables users to efficiently and easily manage personnel activity within buildings and campuses, and achieve access control and time and attendance goals with a single smart card. To give users more flexibility and broaden the field of application, the system is equipped for three access control levels: card only, card and PIN and PIN only. In addition Tema-Voyager Compact can read two types of card technology: proximity cards and smart cards. When users want to migrate gradually and economically from proximity technology to smart card technology this system allows them to cost-effectively upgrade their site.
The Radar Video Surveillance (RVS) system automates wide area surveillance with user defined rules. It is designed to be deployed for example in airports, seaports, industrial plants and offshore platforms. The system allows the user to define areas that are to be radar monitored and any incident will trigger a response. By seamlessly integrating various sensors and responses the RVS is a highly customizable intelligent surveillance system that monitors large areas very effectively. A best practise use case is the automatic camera tracking of threats that helps the security personnel to stay focussed on the threat response while relieving them of the simple tasks of operating the cameras.
