SALTO announces integration with Honeywell's flagship building management system
Tuesday 11 August 2015
Honeywell EBI is an award-winning building management system that facilitates the integration of security, comfort, life safety and energy control, among other functions. In addition, EBI communicates with industry-leading open protocols like BACNet®, OPC® and LonWorks®, which helps customers integrate with third-party software and hardware, and benefit from the scalability and flexibility that come with an interoperable architecture.
The company has now fully incorporated SALTO's state-of-the-art wireless on-line and wire free off-line locking solutions into EBI. This provides users with a single point of access and consistent view to information and resources that enhance the ability to monitor, manage and protect a facility, campus or multi-site operation.
John Rajchert, president of Honeywell Building Solutions comments, 'Effective facility security requires more than a one-size-fits-all solution. Organizations need flexibility to choose different technologies to ensure their overall system meets their particular security needs.
'So being able to bring industry-leading products from companies like SALTO into the EBI platform is important. This allows security and facility personnel to manage critical systems from a single interface ' to see what is happening across their organization and quickly address potential issues.'
Jennifer Stack, Vice President Marketing SALTO Systems says, 'This partnership between SALTO and Honeywell delivers significant benefits to customers looking to deploy an integrated solution into their managed buildings environment.
"The SALTO platform offers a wide range of most comprehensive and versatile products, which allows SALTO to provide access control for the most diverse sectors - from office and government buildings to healthcare, public institutions, education, and airports.
"The new interface between our companies will now help customers in these sectors and others to manage their safety and security operations more efficiently through the same interface, reducing complexity and training needs as well as extending security to interior, less critical access points.'
