Honeywell Launches DIY All-in-One Security System with Alexa
A few weeks ago, Honeywell informed the industry that it planned to launch something special in the DIY smart home security market. No real details about the project were shared other than the fact that it would include some sort of security camera and it would be made available to early adopters through crowdfunding platform Indiegogo.
That changed this week. On Wednesday, Honeywell dropped a ton of details about the project, which appears to be an entire smart home security system. Front and center in the announcement of the Honeywell Smart Home Security System was that the solution would launch with support for Amazon Alexa, allowing the user to control and monitor their entire smart home from one main hub, using an app or their voice.
“More than 150 million homeowners already trust Honeywell with their safety, comfort and security,” Michael Flink, president, Honeywell Security and Fire, said in a statement. “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.”
