Honeywell’s new Pro-Watch 5.5 and video management system
November 21, 2021 By SP&T Staff
Honeywell has launched Pro-Watch 5.5, the latest iteration of its Pro-Watch Integrated Security Suite. The Honeywell Pro-Watch Integrated Security Suite is a software platform designed for enterprise and critical infrastructure markets to help protect people and property, optimize productivity and ensure compliance with industry regulations.
Honeywell Pro-Watch Intelligent Command, a user interface that allows organizations to construct a security system with situational awareness via the integration of video and access control solutions, can now be upgraded to Pro-Watch 5.5. This upgrade enables operators to respond rapidly and effectively to alarms or incidents by providing actionable intelligence including a unified alarm view with maps and associated video that includes Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to be followed, aiding compliance with advanced reporting and reducing security risks.
According to Honeywell, users of Pro-Watch 5.5 will benefit from improved situational awareness through a unified view of alarms and maps, space/area builder to create logical zones and group-based multisite views.
The company has also said that Pro-Watch 5.5 will provide users with enhanced cybersecurity due to the Open Supervised Device Protocol as well as better data privacy with selective masking. Additionally, they also stated this latest version of Pro-Watch will enhance compliance and improve operator efficiency.
Honeywell has also introduced an upgraded version of Pro-Watch Video Management System. Pro-Watch VMS R700 controls video subsystems to collect, manage and present video in a concise manner. It also determines the capabilities of each subsystem across various sites, allowing video management of digital video devices through a unified configuration and viewer.
The company has stated this upgraded version of their VMS will reduce solution cost with advanced GPU video rendering, salvo sequences, 64-bit optimized recording engine and optimized server deployments. It also works with H.265 smart video compression codec, multi-imager and fisheye cameras. Additionally, it provides multiple camera views in web clients, new integrations with artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics systems and geographic information system (GIS) online maps. The system also integrates well with Honeywell’s Series 70 cameras.
