Honeywell unveils building integration and cyber security

New Delhi, September 3, 2019 
 

Honeywell, a global leader in smart building technology and services, today introduced its Enterprise Building Integration (EBI), Command and Control Suite (CCS), and Digital Video Manager (DVM) — a suite of solutions by the Honeywell Forge for buildings platform to drive facility efficiency and oversight, streamline complex functions, and deliver savings across an enterprise.

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.                  

Mark Verheyden, President, Honeywell Building Solutions said, “For buildings to be smarter, more efficient and effective, an operating system must be in place that works to constantly improve resource management. These systems help keep people safe and secure, enhance the building experience, and protect the data and processes that drive operations. The overall health of the building ecosystem can impact business success – just like great talent and experience. Our building operation teams help customers address building use and critical infrastructure challenges.”

These technologies leverage IoT connectivity, interoperable systems and data sharing, and adaptive workflows to help transform inputs and information into actionable outcomes. Key enhancements include:

EBI R600 is Honeywell’s 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 IoT 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 IoT connections in buildings worldwide. DVM R700 is 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 is a facility visualisation application with intuitive interface that brings performance data to building personnel through enhanced map navigation and editing capabilities. 

EBI600, DVM700 and CCS300 integrate with Honeywell Forge for Buildings, enhanced software developed by Honeywell is known as Enterprise Performance Management. Honeywell Forge for Buildings is an integrated platform that connects operational data from assets, processes, third-party applications and people with machine learning to help customers improve their building performance and enhance performance and productivity with actionable insights.

Verheyden said, “Commercial building and critical infrastructure customers are often driving toward similar facility outcomes: streamlined operations, reduced costs, improved safety and security. Efforts to reach these goals are markedly different for a hospital or an airport, for example. Within our enhanced integrated platform of offerings, operations teams can tailor services to help meet specific needs through new multi-windows and interactive options that are just a fingertip away.”

Honeywell is extending its cybersecurity services and products for the buildings OT environment to enable customers to better protect their assets and people. Its solutions include cybersecurity assessment, secure design and configuration, cybersecurity appliances and software, cybersecurity monitoring and remote management, and incident readiness and Advisory.

David Trice, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Connected Enterprise, Buildings, said, “Increasing connectivity to OT systems typically enhances security, promoting visibility and allowing previously unidentified security issues to be more efficiently realised. It is a more proactive approach to monitoring and maintaining the systems to be undertaken, the days of leaving OT systems unmanaged, unpatched and unmonitored are over.”
