Access Control

Support for readers

The latest version of the Pro-Watch security management system from Honeywell expands what services installers can provide to their customers, the manufacturer says. The Pro-Watch 4.1 security management system adds support for SALTO disconnected readers and Mercury Security control panels. These give users more options to extend access control to large and remote facilities.

Luisa Aymet, product manager EMEA at Honeywell Security Group, said: “It’s not uncommon for organizations to have access control, video surveillance and intrusion systems from separate manufacturers. Organisations are purchasing and expanding their security infrastructure as their business needs change. The Pro-Watch platform provides users a seamless way to connect their disparate security systems onto a single management system. Organisations have the flexibility to use or upgrade their existing security systems, and expand those systems as their business grows.”

The integration of SALTO disconnected readers to the Pro-Watch platform expands the services installers can deliver to customers at large and remote facilities, such as healthcare and higher education institutions that typically have multiple buildings. The addition of the readers also complements the recent addition of wireless readers from IR Schlage. These extend electronic access control to areas that were previously cost prohibitive to reach, according to the makers.

Pro-Watch 4.1 also adds support for Mercury Security’s standard protocol control panels. This gives integrators a way to migrate customers using third-party access control, supported by Mercury Security control panels, to the Pro-Watch platform. A user has the option to keep or upgrade access hardware to Honeywell components, including readers and access cards.

The Pro-Watch platform is available in four editions:

· Pro-Watch Enterprise Edition designed for global enterprises with multiple locations and security systems to manage.

· Pro-Watch Corporate Edition for large organization and campuses.

· Pro-Watch Professional Edition provides for organizations with up to 64 doors or requiring regulatory compliance.

· Pro-Watch Lite Edition, basic for organizations with up to 32 doors, offers Rapid Eye video.
