Honeywell, a Fortune 100 technology company, on September 23 announced new solutions to its Healthy Buildings Safety & Security offering that help building owners comply with social distancing and mask guidelines.
The Honeywell Pro-Watch and MAXPRO Network Video Recorders (NVR) and Video Management Systems (VMS) can now use existing cameras to identify if building occupants are complying with guidelines around social distancing and wearing masks, said a press release issued by the company.
The advanced analytics and deep learning artificial intelligence video analytics, provide an industry leading level of accuracy, when used in the recommended operating conditions, and can isolate and report any instances of non-compliance to buildings and facility managers, added the release.
“Many companies are grappling with how to comply to new guidelines and recommendations like social distancing and wearing masks to keep their workforce safer, and this can be a daunting task for facility managers to handle manually,” said Manish Sharma, Vice-President and Chief Technology Officer of Honeywell Building Technologies.
“We’ve long known that video systems can do more than capture and store video feeds of events. We’ve deployed more powerful AI (Artificial Intelligence) & ML (Machine Learnings) to help identify trends, track patterns and help building owners better understand how spaces are used. These new solutions by Honeywell aim to give both building managers and tenants the ability to navigate living and working in the new normal,” he added.
