Honeywell 30 Series IP Cameras Help End Users Comply With Procurement Standards
The new cameras comply with standards instituted under the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 (NDAA Section 889).
ATLANTA — Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has introduced its line of 30 Series IP Cameras, a new suite of video cameras that are said to strengthen building safety and security through advanced analytics and secure channel encryption.
The Honeywell 30 Series IP cameras are designed for use as part of video systems that comply with U.S. government procurement standards instituted under the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 (NDAA Section 889).
The new cameras allow end users to also benefit from lower total cost of ownership and lower risk, as well as improved picture quality without increased storage needs, according to an announcement.
NDAA Section 889 prohibits the U.S. government from procuring video and telecommunication equipment from certain companies and their subsidiaries. Many security end users outside of the government are also looking to follow these provisions, the announcement states.
“Honeywell is in the business of protection — from the buildings to the data and people within,” says Jeremy Kimber, video global product management director, Honeywell Commercial Security. “With the release of the 30 Series IP Cameras, we are providing advanced secure channel encryption that guards against unauthorized access and unsanctioned distribution of data and video to help end users seamlessly integrate security into any business.”
The 30 Series IP Cameras are available in dome, bullet, ball and fisheye models. The announcement claims the following features and benefits:
Secure channel encryption — In addition to enabling end users to follow the provisions in NDAA Section 889, the new cameras provide HTTP over TLS1.2 (HTTPS) encrypted streaming to Honeywell MAXPRO Network Video Recorders (NVR). They also adhere to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) Together, these elements help meet the increasingly stringent requirements being set by IT departments to shield businesses against unauthorized access and unsanctioned distribution of data and video.
Advanced motion people detection — Traditional motion detection only detects pixel changes, leading to a higher false alarm rate. Advanced motion people detection is designed to reduce false alarm rates as it will only create an alarm when the moving object is recognized as a person.
Enhanced storage space and image quality — A higher quality camera resolution of up to 5MP deliver exceptional images and comes with a user-friendly interface for secure remote viewing. The H.265 smart codec feature allows for storage of longer clips, lower bandwidth consumption and enables images to take up to 50% less storage space, which decreases operating costs.
The new line of cameras are fully integrated using HTTPS encrypted streaming with MAXPRO Network Video Recorders. They can also be used with Performance Embedded NVRs linked to the MAXPRO Cloud multi-site video and access control management platform and with the ADPRO XO range of NVRs with on-board video analytics.
With its advanced analytics and encryption capabilities, Honeywell 30 Series IP Cameras offer an array of quality options for all small-to-medium businesses, entry-level enterprise and critical applications where compliance is essential such as banking and finance, government, utilities, campuses, retail and premium commercial.
