Service Allows Consumers to Control Security Systems and View Live Video Using Increasingly Popular Mobile Device
MELVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 21, 2010 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today released a new
Android compatible app for its popular Total Connect services. This app provides
lifestyle-enhancing Total Connect features to the growing number of Android
users—letting them view streaming video of their homes and businesses on their
smartphones as well as control their security systems from any location.
Total Connect is Honeywell’s award-winning service that gives consumers
access to their Honeywell security systems or Total Connect video systems from
anywhere, anytime. Using PCs, laptops, mobile phones and smartphones, Total
Connect customers can arm and disarm their systems, receive e-mail alerts when
an alarm trips, and access video from inside and around the premises. In
addition to Android, Honeywell provides Total Connect apps for the iPhone® and
BlackBerry®. The new Android app is available for free download at Android
“Smartphones are the new norm for staying connected to just about everything
– friends, family, work, and everything else in between,” said Gordon Hope,
general manager of Honeywell’s AlarmNet business. “Security is an essential part
of our lives, so it only makes sense to use these increasingly popular devices
to stay connected to our security systems as well.”
When using Total Connect apps, users can toggle between two modes: keypad
functions and video viewing. In video viewing, users view live video, record and
store video clips, take snapshots and can have custom video clips or pictures
e-mailed to them when an event happens, such as when a child returns home from
school. The Total Connect for Android app allows consumers to view up to six
different cameras from their phones individually.
In the system mode, the app replicates a physical keypad and allows the user
to arm and disarm their system, bypass zones and control lights and garage
doors. When combined with anti-theft and environmental sensors, end users can
receive alerts if valuable objects are moved, and if floods or extreme
temperature changes have been detected.
