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.

Get Fired up for RMR with a New Fire Communications Radio for VISTA Panels

Donna Namorato by Donna Namorato | 07.09.2014

It is critical as installing dealers to ensure you meet the safety standards and requirements for commercial fire customers. Now you can do this while increasing your RMR and decreasing your customers’ expenses. How? With the iGSMCFP4G, the new commercial fire communications radio for VISTA panels.


The iGSMCFP4G commercial fire communications radio for VISTA meets NFPA72 2013 and 2010 editions.

This commercial fire radio meets NFPA72 2013 and 2010 editions. It is fully compliant with NFPA72 2013 edition for sixty minute supervision and can function as the sole path of alarm signal transport. The secure, reliable UL 864 listed radio sends Contact ID messages from a Honeywell VISTA fire alarm control panel. The ability to download to the VISTA panel makes the installation more seamless and maximizes serviceability.

The Communications Path
The single path communications solution allows one technology to be used (either IP or cellular) to provide the appropriate connectivity to a central station. For added reliability, our dual path solution allows both technologies (IP and cellular) to be used together. And, it’s designed to operate over the most common cellular networks including 2G, 3G and 4G. The multi-GSM platform technology automatically chooses the best available cellular signal in the area based on signal strength and self-adjusts to maintain critical life safety communication. The single and dual path communication eliminates the need for costly plain old telephone lines (POTS) and this helps your customers save money by eliminating the need for two land-lines.

The iGSMCFP4G may help customers satisfy the needs of the most demanding AHJs. Let us know what you think with a comment below.

Guest Post: Why We Recommend the LYNX 5200 to Our Customers

Ken Mara by Ken Mara | 07.03.2014

Ken Mara is president and CEO of World Wide Security Group.

The LYNX 5200 is a product everyone can get excited about, especially the customer who will enjoy using this system. Our customers are eager for a feature-rich system and the LYNX Touch 5200 delivers. As an all-in-one home and business control system that is easy to operate, our job of selling and installing this system has been made easier.


The LYNX Touch 5200 offers an enhanced user experience for your customers and prospects.

At first glance, our observations of the LYNX 5200 are the design changes. It’s so impressive and robust with rounded edges, a color touch screen with graphic icons and prompts for easy operation. Feedback from customers has been that the keypads/panels are attractive, cleaner and easy to understand. For us, this is a homerun. When a customer embraces a product and its functionality like they have with the LYNX 5200, we have done our job. Not only are we meeting their security goals, but exceeding them. This translates into a better user experience and a customer with a longer lifespan.

Expectations run high with the consumer; spoiled by the performance of technology from apps downloaded to perform any task they want. This same expectation is extended to the alarm company. Our ability to deliver next generation technology is expected of us, and the LYNX 5200 helps us achieve this goal.

In our opinion, the LYNX Touch 5200 breaks down the barriers that once stood between the outdated mindset of home and business security performance. It is a game changer and a welcome addition to what is happening now in the marketplace. And it is an active, responsive and reactive system with massive video capacity. Combined with the Honeywell LYNX Connect app, users can view video and operate their systems.

The LYNX 5200 has taken the traditional alarm system and is driving the industry into the next century with a powerful security system on your phone, on your iPad and other remote devices.
