Honeywell is one of the largest security system manufacturers in the entire electronics market and recently the Melville, N.Y.-based company updated its versatile Total Connect system to incorporate the newest technologies available in the category.

The company’s new Total Connect 2.0 system is said to install faster for installers and its now able to integrate with Honeywell’s LYNX and VISTA alarm systems more easily. Among the system’s new features are its ability to provide real-time status and responses to users, and it offers the ability to allow users to remotely manage their systems.

In addition, Honeywell incorporates the ability to enable users to view live video from their computers, smart phones and web tablets to provide property owners with an extra level of security assurance. Honeywell also says the new 2.0 Total Connect system incorporates a flash-based graphical user interface (GUI) that makes system navigation easier for users by keeping the system’s entire operation within a single viewable screen.
