Honeywell and REACT Systems Provide Unified Solutions for Integrated Security and Emergency Response
LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 2, 2009 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has teamed with Roseville, California-based REACT Systems™, Inc. to provide a unified security solution for mass notification. The offering allows the REACT! Enterprise Critical Response Notification System to interface with Honeywell’s Pro-Watch® security management and WIN-PAK® access control platforms. Bringing Honeywell and REACT security technologies together provides users with the ability to automate the process of initiating a response to critical scenarios, ensuring that information reaches people quickly so they can take appropriate action.
“During an emergency situation, every second counts,” said John Lorenty, general manager for access systems, Honeywell. “Many businesses today still rely on outdated procedures and methods to communicate in a crisis. By providing a way to allow security personnel to reach the greatest number of people in the shortest amount of time, we’re fulfilling our mission of helping make the world safer and more secure.”
The interfacing of Honeywell’s Pro-Watch and WIN-PAK platforms with REACT allows notification of security events to occur quickly and efficiently, wherever responders are, using whatever communication methods are available. While organizations often have plans in place for first responders, the response plans often stop there. Because many security and life safety events can impact a larger set of people, it is critical that organizations have the ability to provide specific instructions to staff and visitors.
“We are happy to be working with Honeywell to improve the security and response effectiveness of organizations,” said Maria Ligeti, chairman and CEO of REACT Systems. “Through providing mass notification technology for effective response to events, we can provide our customers with the ability to save lives and reduce the impact of security and life safety events.”
The interface to Pro-Watch and WIN-PAK, as well as a standalone offering, is currently available through Honeywell’s Integrated Security channel. Honeywell and REACT are demonstrating the new offering at ISC West, April 1-3 in Las Vegas, NV in booth 14023.
