Honeywell integrates its security and building management systems with IDEMIA’s biometric-based access control systems to create a more seamless experience for buildings of the future

Honeywell, one of the leaders in connected buildings, and IDEMIA, one of the leaders in Augmented Identity, has announced a strategic alliance to create and cultivate an intelligent building ecosystem that provides a more seamless and enhanced experience for operators and occupants alike. The alliance will integrate Honeywell’s security and building management systems with IDEMIA’s biometric-based access control systems to create frictionless, safer and more efficient buildings.

The Honeywell and IDEMIA alliance is intended to design solutions that will allow occupants to have easy, secured and contactless engagement with a building, from vehicle recognition at the car park and automatic elevator calls to biometric based access and personalised conference room settings. With a focus on security and data privacy, the next-generation solutions will provide occupants with a safer, more efficient and more enjoyable experience that will help building owners attract tenants.

“We realised that our customers need to deliver business outcomes like, managing complex security requirements and providing healthier, more productive environments. By working with IDEMIA, we will create an intelligent building ecosystem that addresses our customers’ key challenges and drive their desired outcomes. Whether it’s a commercial office building, a hospital or an airport, we have the ability to change the way people experience and interact with buildings for the better.” said Manish Sharma, Vice-President, Chief Technology and Chief Product Officer, Honeywell Building Technologies.

“We look forward to expanding our long-standing relationship with Honeywell and bring greater value to our customers with more integrated solutions that creates a seamless building experience. The ability for our technology to easily integrate with Honeywell safety and security systems, will provide building owners and operators more insight and control into creating more efficient buildings, while putting the occupant experience first.” said Matt Cole, CEO, Secure Enterprise Transactions Division, IDEMIA.

IDEMIA’s field-proven AI-based products and solutions  like MorphoWaveTM, a contactless fingerprint device that scans four fingerprints in less than one second; VisionPass, the most advanced facial recognition terminal; or Augmented Vision, a biometric video analytics platform — integrate with Honeywell security and building management systems. Honeywell’s systems include Pro-Watch Integrated Security Suite, MAXPRO Cloud and Enterprise Buildings Integrator.

Honeywell and IDEMIA will work together to deliver more powerful integrations through aligned product creation and joint product roadmaps. The integrated offerings will allow building operators to respond rapidly and effectively to alarms or incidents by providing an incident workflow package that allows Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to be configured, reducing compliance exceptions, security risks and response times.

IDEMIA products also support Honeywell’s Healthy Buildings solutions that help building owners improve building environments, operate more cleanly and safely and encourage sustained compliance with changing building standards, safety guidelines, government-issued regulations and a company’s risk management policies. Honeywell’s Healthy Buildings solutions provide a holistic view of a building’s health based on key factors such as indoor air quality, occupant flow, personal protection equipment (PPE) analytics, contactless access, thermal screening, social distancing and sanitation efficacy.
