Makes Security Simpler and More Effective for Smaller Scale and Entry Level Requirements; Offered Through Distributors

HONG KONG, Aug. 16 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced the launch of a series of security packages for small- and medium-size business (SMB) applications, providing a comprehensive range of video surveillance, access control and intrusion solutions that are cost-effective and easy-to-use. As part of this launch, Honeywell Security Group is assembling distribution channels to serve SMBs throughout Asia.
There are an enormous number of small- and medium-size businesses in the Asia Pacific region, and their security needs are different from that of larger enterprises. Despite the investment SMBs will allocate for security solutions, they may not have an expert or a specialized department to manage their security systems, so they require products and solutions that are easy to install, manage and maintain.
"We are dedicated to bringing customers innovative products and solutions to secure their personnel and assets and to improve their working environment," said Jeffrey Sit, sales director Asia Pacific for Honeywell Security Group. "We understand the unique requirements of SMBs and have extended our product portfolio to fit small scale and entry-level security applications. These new offerings will bring SMBs world-class quality security products that they can install-and-forget."
The SMB package includes the Honeywell Vista series video surveillance system for both indoor and outdoor installation at various SMBs, the LYNX wireless burglary control panel that protects up to 24 zones with an enhanced message centre, single-button operation, remote phone control and "Follow Me" alarm & reminder functions, the 238C Plus II intrusion system that offers protection up to 8 zones with simple installation and programming as well as the web-based access control system IP-AK2, whose built-in Web server allows users to employ a standard Web browser to manage, control, and monitor the access control system from anywhere an Internet connection is available.
"Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is one of the core considerations for SMBs," said Mr. Sit. "Honeywell SMB package products are simple-to-install, easy-to-use, cost-effective and exceptionally reliable. By reducing maintenance and training expenses, users will be able to save a number of long term costs with Honeywell SMB products."
Honeywell SMB products will be sold through authorized distributors. "We are now actively recruiting distributors across the region whose business objectives in this area are closely aligned with ours," said Kenneth Law, channel sales director for Honeywell Security Group APAC. "Through the best distribution partners, we will deliver not just the best products but also efficient local services and support to our end user customers. Honeywell Security Group will continue to announce authorized distributors and new products to serve SMBs across video surveillance, access control, intrusion and home automation."
