Since Honeywell Total Connect announced our full iOS compatibility support with SkyBell HD Smart Video Doorbell, we’ve received an extremely positive response. Why?  Now Honeywell Total Connect SkyBell users are able to see, hear and speak to visitors at the door directly through Honeywell Total Connect. They also have the ability to arm/disarm, lock/unlock the premises all through one screen, while seeing and talking to a visitor the entire time!  This convenient functionality helps you offer a better user experience and control, while helping to keep customers connected through our ever-expanding ecosystem.

Complete, Single-Screen Control
To help you communicate this great news to your customers, we have created the new video below that highlights the benefits. In the video, you’ll see a Honeywell Total Connect iOS user seeing, hearing and speaking to the child at the door, with full-screen video viewing. The video shows how simple it is to arm/disarm and lock/unlock the premises, all through one screen.

Embed the video on your website, share it with your sales team and incorporate it in your sales and marketing presentations. Convert and win new business with offerings like SkyBell that can separate you from the competition.

Recent WIN-PAK Updates Enhance Reporting

WIN-PAK Updates

Take a look at the WIN-PAK updates that can save you time and money.

WIN-PAK XE/SE/PE 4.0 users can now upgrade to WIN-PAK XE/SE/PE 4.4 via their active Service Maintenance Upgrade (SMU). One of the new features you will find is the ability to generate a Tracking and Muster report from any system event.  In previous releases, the report needed to be manually initiated and repeated manually to receive updates during an emergency.  Now a Tracking and Muster report template can be defined and attached to a specific event, hot button or even a schedule.  We have also added a timing function so the same report can be repeated every 1-65,535 seconds or set as a delay between multiple Tracking and Muster reports.  The reports can also be emailed in addition to printing them.

A Global Release
So you might ask, what happened to 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3?  WIN-PAK is sold worldwide with regions adding feature and function for their needs.  So 4.1 was a European release while 4.2 and 4.3 were released for Asian markets.  These have all been rolled into a common Global 4.4 release.  While much of the regional features are available only in that region, common global features are exposed in this 4.4 release.

Take a few minutes to review the highlight section of the release notes to discover other enhancements of this release.
