Honeywell Building Integration and Cyber Solutions Suite to Improve Efficiency, Data Analysis and Control

By Ken Briodagh

In a recent announcement, Honeywell introduced the next generation of its Enterprise Building Integration (EBI), Command and Control Suite (CCS), and Digital Video Manager (DVM). This suite of solutions is enabled by the Honeywell Forge for Buildings platform and is designed to help drive facility efficiency and oversight, streamline complex functions, and deliver savings across an enterprise.

A key component to making this all work is keeping facilities and occupants safe, the company said. Along with EBI, CCS and DVM Honeywell is launching a portfolio of enhanced cybersecurity solutions to help companies protect against the rising risk of unexpected attacks on data, network systems and buildings infrastructure.

“For buildings to be smarter, more efficient and effective, an operating system must be in place that works to constantly improve resource management,” said Mark Verheyden, president, Honeywell Building Solutions. “These systems help keep people safe and secure, enhance the building experience, and protect the data and processes that drive operations. The overall health of the building ecosystem can impact business success – just like great talent and experience. Our building operation teams help customers address building use and critical infrastructure challenges.”

These technologies can leverage IoT connectivity, interoperable systems and data sharing, and adaptive workflows to help transform inputs and information into actionable outcomes, according to the release.

Key enhancements include:

  • EBI R600 – The Honeywell building management system that helps connect, monitor and manage core building functions, from comfort to security to safety, and can help reduce upfront capital costs. The open IoT platform integrates with numerous third-party systems and equipment as well as cloud and mobile applications. With more than 23 years of market implementation, EBI has more than 150 million IoT connections in buildings worldwide.
  • DVM R700 – An enhanced digital surveillance system that delivers a detailed view of operations and enterprise-wide integrated protection. Improved camera servers enhance views and reduce storage needs and hardware costs.
  • CCS R300 – Facility visualization application with intuitive interface that brings performance data to building personnel through enhanced map navigation and editing capabilities.

“Commercial building and critical infrastructure customers are often driving toward similar facility outcomes: streamlined operations, reduced costs, improved safety and security,” Verheyden said. “Efforts to reach these goals are markedly different for a hospital or an airport, for example. Within our enhanced integrated platform of offerings, operations teams can tailor services to help meet specific needs through new multi-windows and interactive options that are just a fingertip away.”
