Unlock the Key to Success without a Key

Steven Craig by Steven Craig | 07.29.2014

What if I told you that I could offer you an access control system that not only integrates with wireless locks but biometric readers as well?  You are probably thinking, “What’s the big deal?  Every company can and is doing that now.”  Yea, but are they meeting specific wants, providing multiple options, and doing it all at an affordable price?  Didn’t think so.

4.2 Main ImageWith Pro-Watch 4.2, Honeywell offers five different options of wireless locks and biometric readers.  That’s right! With the latest Pro-Watch release you get more choices than you ever did before.  Stop having to use only one or two different lockset or biometric readers.  Instead, use the variety of options 4.2 provides by meeting a specific need.  Want to lock a safe vault or even a glass door wirelessly? Do so with 4.2.

Pro-Watch 4.2 provides integrators the accessibility to sell more access control readers per site due to lower costs and no wires.  It provides access control to doors that are traditionally cost prohibitive due to wires.  With fewer wire runs, the price is reduced.  With reduced prices, you can add more access control readers to doors and even target customers that refused to integrate with access due to elevated prices.  4.2 provides the integrator with more options, more sales per site, reduced costs, and the latest technology.  What’s not to love?

End User Benefits
4.2 won’t leave the end user out in the dust either.  With all this talk about reduced wires and costs, that should help the end user out some, right?  Absolutely!  Customers are finally able to afford a state-of-the-art access system at an affordable price.  They have less reliance on lock and key while gaining an up-to-date management system.  And, they will now have the ability to manage employees more efficiently while gaining an audit trail.  Audit trails let you know when an employee enters or leaves your building without you having to worry.

Pro-Watch 4.2 finally gives both integrators and end users a system that provides multiple options.  I guess you can finally say that you can walk through the door of success without needing a key.

New VAM “How-To” Training Videos Are Available

Michelle Nettuno by Michelle Nettuno | 07.23.2014

Recently, we introduced the VISTA Automation Module (VAM), which transforms VISTA from a security system to a security and home/business automation system at an unbeatable price. With more than 10 million VISTA customers out there who are hearing about these services (through friends, advertising, etc.) and can benefit from the upgrade, VAM provides the perfect opportunity to go to your existing VISTA customers and offer them an affordable way to locally control their security system and Z-Wave-enabled lights, locks, shades and more.

We have created “how-to” training videos to help your customers get started with their new VISTA security and automation system. These informative videos cover VAM installation, setting up Z-Wave devices, setting up cameras and more. Take a few moments to watch the video below as well as the others on YouTube, The Security Channel and the Tuxedo Touch/VAM dealer toolkit. And, be sure to introduce them to your customers.

If YouTube is blocked, you can view the videos here.

Of course, most of us have become accustomed to using our web-enabled devices on a regular basis.  The fact that VAM lets customers use their own web-enabled devices to locally control security and automation helps with customer retention. Add remote control to the mix with Honeywell Total Connect Remote Services and you have the perfect recipe for Big Picture business growth, additional RMR, happier customers and reduced attrition.

Low-Light IP Camera Lets You Install the Right Camera for the Job

Donna Namorato by Donna Namorato | 07.14.2014

When it comes to opportunity, don’t be left in the dark. Our indoor low-light IP camera—which lets home and business owners remotely view video and receive notifications of activity in low-light and dark indoor environments—is a great way to increase RMR and to expand the scope of the Honeywell Total Connect Video offering.


The iPCAM-WL is the perfect choice for remote viewing of a nursery or any indoor environment with less than optimal lighting.

The new iPCAM-WL offers a video solution for indoor low light or no light areas.  The camera’s controllable on-board IR LEDs expand the versatility of this video solution. Now with the new low light IPCAM-WL, there is no need to install an outdoor IR capable camera inside a home or business to combat poor lighting conditions.

The camera’s sleek, compact design meets the desired aesthetics required by consumers. The camera supports H.264 video compression, offering greater streaming video efficiency and clarity. The iPCAM-WL is the right tool for the job to support remote viewing of a nursery, basement, storage area, or any indoor environment with less than optimal lighting.

Honeywell’s Total Connect Video Solution lets you grow your customer base because you’re not limited to customers that have a security system. You can provide Total Connect Video whether the customer has your system, a competitor’s system, or no security system at all.  Combine the iPCAM-WL with our dynamic new intrusion offerings– and you’ve got a true, end-to-end solution that no other competitor can touch. Now that’s thinking big picture.
