Honeywell has announced that its widely used VISTA series of security alarm panels are compatible with the Apple iOS-based automation system from Key Digital.
Key Digital’s Compass Control System allows home and business owners to use Apple devices such as iPad, iPad mini, iPhone, and iPod touch to control a range of functions from climate control and lighting to video, audio and more. Working with VISTA, Key Digital’s Compass Control will now allow customers to perform tasks such as arming and disarming security systems from these devices.
“Mobile represents the modern way of conducting business, which is precisely why customers want platforms like Key Digital’s Compass Control that streamline operations on familiar devices,” said Key Digital’s Vice President of Sales, Michael Lakhter. “Aside from functions like HVAC, lighting and video, security technology is becoming a bigger part of the building automation equation, which is why it makes sense to work with a security leader like Honeywell.”
The interoperability allows video, control and energy management on Key Digital’s Compass Control platform to react based on different security states. For example, the combined solution can lower the temperature when home or business owners arm the security system when leaving for the day. A software driver developed by Key Digital provides audio, video, climate, lighting, home control, keypad emulation, security and energy management and basic system status for most residential and commercial Honeywell VISTA panels.
