HONEYWELL FACILITY TECHNOLOGY CERTIFIEDTO MEET ADVANCED SECURITY AND SAFETY NEEDS

MINNEAPOLIS, June 9, 2014 Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced that two of its flagship building technologies, Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI) and Digital Video Manager (DVM), have been recognized by noted safety and security agencies. UL certified EBI and Department of Homeland Security designated DVM as meeting performance criteria for critical applications. "Meeting industry standards is a powerful way to prove technologies are reliable and will do exactly what they're designed to do a potential life-and-death matter when it comes to security and safety equipment," said Paul Orzeske, president of Honeywell Building Solutions. "EBI and DVM have a long track record of delivering protection and value, and this recognition further underscores their effectiveness."The latest release of Honeywell EBI, an intelligent building management platform that integrates core automation systems for simplified management and control, received certification from UL for its intrusion-detection capabilities. This adds to the platform's existing mass-notification capabilities using voice over IP. EBI has demonstrated it can integrate with security, fire and life-safety equipment to receive signals when a potential issue is identified, and reliably and securely deliver messages to operators, employees, etc. all within strict timeframes.This is vital during security incidents, weather emergencies and other acute events. And it's an imperative in settings like a pharmaceutical lab where a technology fault could jeopardize employee safety, as well as billions in research and development. In addition to the main building management system, Honeywell can provide customers an end-to-end solution. EBI integrates with the company's UL-certified commercial security panels, using National Institute of Standards and Technology-compliant data encryption to exchange data. This functionality is required for government facilities that house or process classified information.With mass notification, the Honeywell XLS3000 fire alarm system, also UL listed, can quickly detect fire conditions and communicate to EBI, which can then interface with Honeywell Instant Alert®, a Web-based notification service, to broadcast a warning or evacuation instructions via email, phone or text. Along with the UL listings, Honeywell DVM, a digital surveillance system that's part of the EBI suite, received Support Anti-Terrorism for Fostering Effective Technologies (SAFETY) Act Designation from the Department of Homeland Security. Designated technologies meet high safety and security parameters, and limit risk in case of a catastrophic event, protecting users both physically and financially. DVM now carries an added level of insurance and protection, bolstering its usefulness for critical infrastructure and other security implementations.
