Honeywell and IDEMIA Announce Strategic Alliance to Develop Intelligent Building Offering
Honeywell, a global leader in connected buildings, and IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity, have announced a strategic alliance to create and cultivate an intelligent building ecosystem. 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 contactless engagement with a building – from vehicle recognition at the car park and automatic elevator calls to biometric-based access and personalized conference room settings.
- We recognize that our customers need to deliver business outcomes like managing complex security requirements and providing healthier, more productive environments, said Manish Sharma, vice president, chief technology and chief product officer for Honeywell Building Technologies.
- By working with IDEMIA we will create an intelligent building ecosystem that better addresses our customers’ key challenges and drives 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.
- We look forward to expanding our long-standing relationship with Honeywell to bring greater value to our customers with more integrated solutions that make for a more seamless building experience, said Matt Cole, CEO, Secure Enterprise Transactions Division, IDEMIA.
- 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, Cole adds.
IDEMIA’s AI-based products and solutions will integrate with Honeywell security and building management systems. 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.
Longer operating times, greater flexibility, fewer blocked areas - Magazino relies fully on Wiferion's inductive energy systems for its new SOTO 2 mobile robot. The robot transports small load carriers (SLC) fully autonomously from the warehouse to the production line. Thanks to wireless charging technology, the Munich-based robotics company integrates the energy supply into the value-adding process of the SOTO 2.
