Honeywell WIN-PAK™ PRO Central Station Brings Cost Savings, Scalable Security to Company’s Access Control Portfolio
Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced that Reliance High-Tech – an Elite member of the Honeywell Systems Integrator Programme – has selected Honeywell’s WIN-PAK PRO Central Station software to power its new managed access control solution. The service, which will be hosted by the dedicated Reliance Monitoring Centre in West Yorkshire, will potentially generate significant additional monthly recurring revenues for Reliance through the provision of ongoing remote managed access control services to its customers.
Remote managed access control presents the ideal security solution for both Small to Medium Enterprises wishing to install access control for the first time, as well as existing access control customers who want to switch from a locally based system to a more cost effective and flexible remote managed solution.
The WIN-PAK PRO Central Station remote managed access control software from Honeywell will reduce installation and service costs for both Reliance High-Tech and its customers in a number of ways including removing the need for dedicated on-site PCs at customer premises, reducing end-user training requirements and facilitating remote servicing. The scalability offered by remotely managed access control will also allow Reliance High-Tech to quickly and easily adapt security solutions, depending on its customers’ needs.
As part of the service, Reliance High-Tech monitoring specialists will be able to remotely open and close doors on request, create customised security reports for customers and respond to on-site alarms, alerting emergency services where necessary. Customers can also access the system remotely at any time through a secure web portal if they need to add/delete badges or view the latest reports in real time.
Initially set up to provide CCTV and access control support for its customers, the BS5979 Cat II Reliance Monitoring Centre quickly diversified its services to include command and control, lone worker protection and asset tracking. The centre works in accordance with ISO270000 for data protection, and has a separate mirrored centre 60 miles away for contingency purposes.
This latest move to extend the offering to include remote managed access control came in response to a growing customer demand for the innovative service. Reliance High Tech’s long standing relationship with Honeywell made the task of choosing a technology partner for the service a simple one.
“Reliance High Tech has been installing Honeywell WIN-PAK technology for many years and our teams are extremely familiar with the strong technical capabilities, user friendly interface and database management functionality of the range,” said Dan Thomas, sales and marketing director, Reliance High-Tech.
“The addition of WIN-PAK PRO Central Station to our access control portfolio helps our customers to save money by reducing manpower and using technology more intelligently to enhance security.”
“In today’s security environment, many organisations seek the protection provided by a comprehensive access control solution but do not want the financial burden of hosting the system locally,” said Daniel Wan, UK marketing leader, Honeywell Systems Group. “Outsourcing security functions to experts such as Reliance High-Tech offers an excellent solution and allows organisations to take advantage of the very latest security technology from trusted brands like Honeywell, while simultaneously reducing overhead costs incurred.”
