Honeywell Unveils DIY Security System, Launches on Indiegogo

Honeywell says its smart home security system is an all-in-one awareness and home-integration system.

Honeywell releases its first DIY smart home security system.

ATLANTA — After weeks of speculation, Honeywell has officially released its first DIY security system, the Honeywell Smart Home Security System.

The company says the heart of the security system is a camera base station with an integrated 1080p HD camera and 145-degree viewing that will incorporate facial recognition with push notifications.

Featuring a microphone and speaker, the system is integrated with the Alexa Voice Service.

The Honeywell Smart Home Security System also features indoor and outdoor sensors and motion viewers that can alert end users if doors or windows are opened.

The camera base station and additional devices can be adjusted using a schedule, location-based geofencing, or customizable event and scene triggers.

“Right out of the box and enabled by Amazon Alexa, our system allows customers to keep an eye on what’s happening in and around their homes. As is the case with all of Honeywell’s Connected Home offerings, the system can be enabled by location-based geofencing, which means it knows when you are at home or away,” says Michael Flink, president, Honeywell Security and Fire.

Audio and video self-monitoring is available directly through the Honeywell Lyric app, and the Smart Home Security System also can send alerts inside the home with customizable lighting, sirens and video notifications through the app.

The system will come with 24 hours of back-up cloud storage, which will be expanded to three days later this year.

Honeywell is taking a unique approach to selling the system by first launching on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo. According to Honeywell, this will allow the company to obtain product feedback from ‘early-adopter’ consumers. The product will become available to the pro channel in 2018.

“We applaud Honeywell for their commitment to listen to the ‘crowd’ in crowdsourcing ideas for their latest innovation,” says Jonathan Cohen, chief enterprise solutions officer, Indiegogo. “Indiegogo’s Enterprise offering will allow Honeywell to capture interest and validation while receiving actionable, product insights from consumers.”

Honeywell has an extensive list of additional features it intends to roll out in 2018. This includes:

  • Facial recognition
  • Audio analytics
  • Smart alerts
  • Z-Wave control
  • Siri integration
  • Extended cloud storage services
  • Amazon music services
  • Motion viewer support
  • Additional partner integrations

    Indiegogo, really?? Indiegogo is for startups and those who otherwise lack the funding for projects they’re trying to get off the ground.

    It’s not for major corporations to cut costs and increase overhead under the guise of “customer involvement and feedback.”

    This corporate misuse of crowdfunding needs to stop.
