Honeywell’s Touchscreen Home Automation
Honeywell isn't just for security anymore. Recently, the company unveiled a home automation system.
The heart of the new system is the 6280 graphical touchpanel, featuring a 7-inch screen and an array of communications modules inside. The unit has an Ethernet port and a built-in Web server for monitoring and managing the security system remotely. Via the IP connection, users can receive local news, weather and sports. Plus, the installer can push notifications to the panel.
If the user does not desire professional monitoring, the 6280 does include RF technology compatible with Honeywell's existing wireless sensors (5800 series), so the system can be used simply for self-monitored security.
The 7-inch in-wall-only touchpanel uses Honeywell's standard icons to control a home's alarm system, access IP cameras to view video images, control lights, HVAC and deadbolt door locks. When the unit goes into "sleep" mode, it can run a slideshow of family photos.
