Honeywell (NYSE: HON), a global leader in smart building technology and services, today introduced the next generation of Enterprise Building Integration (EBI), Command and Control Suite (CCS), and Digital Video Manager (DVM), a suite of solutions enabled by the Honeywell Forge for Buildings platform, that help drive facility efficiency and oversight, streamline complex functions, and deliver savings across an enterprise.
A key component to making this all work is keeping facilities and occupants safe. Along with EBI, CCS and DVM Honeywell is launching a portfolio of enhanced cybersecurity solutions to help companies protect against the rising risk of unexpected attacks on data, network systems and buildings infrastructure.
“For buildings to be smarter, more efficient and effective, it is imperative to put in place an operating system that enables consistent improvement of resource management,” said George Bou Mitri, vice president and general manager for Honeywell Building Technologies in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa. “These systems help keep people safe and secure, enhance the building experience, and protect the data and processes that drive operations, eventually impacting business success. Our building operation teams help customers in the region address building use and critical infrastructure challenges.”
These technologies leverage Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity, interoperable systems, data sharing, and adaptive workflows to help transform inputs and information into actionable outcomes. Key enhancements include:
- EBI R600 – The Honeywell building management system that helps connect, monitor and manage core building functions, from comfort to security to safety, and can help reduce upfront capital costs. The open IIoT platform integrates with numerous third-party systems and equipment as well as cloud and mobile applications. With more than 23 years of market implementation, EBI has more than 150 million IIoT connections in buildings worldwide.
- DVM R700 – An enhanced digital surveillance system that delivers a detailed view of operations and enterprise-wide integrated protection. Improved camera servers enhance views and reduce storage needs and hardware costs.
- CCS R300 – Facility visualization application with intuitive interface that brings performance data to building personnel through enhanced map navigation and editing capabilities.
