Web-based integrator

October 2002 Access Control & Identity Management

Honeywell has introduced the latest version of its Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI) solution. EBI is a technology platform that integrates all core building systems and subsystems, including security, digital video surveillance, access control, life safety, and heating, ventilation and airconditioning (HVAC). It provides a single point of access to all information and resources.

EBI's newest feature is an easy-to-use Web-based user interface that allows access through any workstation equipped with Microsoft's Internet Explorer Web browser. Using this interface, one can monitor and control one or more buildings through an on-site computer or a computer at a remote location. The interface's Web-style menus, toolbars and icons allow for intuitive navigation and fast access to information, all of which is aimed at reducing the time and cost required to train system operators.

Other new features include:

* Integration of live video surveillance into custom displays using Honeywell's digital video management (DVM) system. With DVM, one can monitor several locations within a facility or multiple facilities on a single screen.

* Advanced security control through fully integrated support of biometric access control devices. Unique biometric templates are stored centrally resulting in an efficient management of access control across one or more sites.

* Asset Locator enables one to locate and track valuable assets throughout the facility and locate key personnel.
