Honeywell Pro-Watch security mgmt software with Tridium Niagara AX Framework
By Anthony Capkun
Honeywell’s Pro-Watch security management software is now leveraging the Niagara AX Framework from Tridium—an open software platform that enables the integration and interoperability of building automation systems (BASs) for real-time monitoring and control of security, secondary fire and other applications. The Pro-Watch platform currently integrates various security components but, with the Niagara Framework, can now integrate with systems such as secondary fire, lighting and HVAC. Now, says Honeywell, any automation system standardized on Niagara is immediately compatible with other systems connected to the framework, decreasing the development time and cost associated with integrating multiple BASs existing at geographically dispersed facilities. Among the Honeywell modules leveraging the Niagara Framework is the Pro-Watch Notifier Secondary Fire Interface.
