Safety and productivity solutions provider Honeywell has launched the first set of tools under its connected life safety services (CLSS) cloud platform for fire safety systems.

Designed and developed by cloud programmers, IoT (internet of things) stack developers, and mobile app developers at Honeywell Technology Solutions (HTS), Bengaluru, the solutions help customers remotely access and manage fire safety systems. HTS is the engineering and technology arm of Honeywell.

In a statement, the Charlotte, North Carolina headquartered company said that its new solution enables connectivity and visibility to fire safety systems through a dedicated mobile application or desktop browser. It has been built on top of the company’s Forge platform and can be used by technicians to seamlessly monitor fire and life safety systems anytime and anywhere as well as diagnose potential problems. 

The real-time view from the cloud solution allows technicians to troubleshoot a system well before reaching the site. This way, they could remotely determine the problem and reach the control panel with the right tools to service the system.

This eventually helps with minimizing disruptions, proving compliance, and reducing the time needed to design, install, commission, inspect, and maintain the systems across facilities, the company added. CLSS tools can also capture testing activity automatically and generate suggested corrective actions and maintenance recommendations based upon local regulations.

“With CLSS, we help system integrators provide their customers with the highest level of safety and service, and work more efficiently by giving them insight into the system problem before they even get to the site,” Sameer Agrawal, the general manager of global fire software and services at Honeywell, said in the statement.

The launch of these tools will be particularly useful given the current industry situation, where the pandemic has forced many organizations to operate with reduced maintenance staff and restrict access to their facilities.
