At ISC, Honeywell released its Performance Series, the latest addition to the company’s extensive portfolio of security cameras. The Performance Series includes new lines of indoor and indoor/outdoor mini-domes as well as bullet cameras, many with infrared (IR) illumination. The line is ideal for organizations looking for cost-effective surveillance for their security systems.

“Our customers, whether dealers or end-users, represent a wide array of commercial environments, ranging from retail to banking to education, all of which have unique requirements for security systems,” said John Lorenty, president, Honeywell Systems Group. “The Performance Series rounds out Honeywell’s portfolio of IR and mini-dome cameras by offering our customers a simple yet solid design that’s easy to install and operate. We’re extremely excited about the Performance Series cameras and feel confident that we’ve positioned this line to appeal to customers who seek both performance and competitive pricing. Our portfolio now gives customers the option to choose from cameras with basic functionality, those with more advanced features, and those with extended IP-based network functionality.”

Most models in the Performance Series feature IR LEDs that activate when the ambient light drops below a user-defined threshold, enabling around-the-clock surveillance in extreme low-light applications. Crisp color images are captured by day and clear black and white images at night. The series also includes models with Vari-focal lenses that allow the cameras to adjust to a variety of distances.

“Some situations require high-end surveillance cameras with multiple functions, but many of our customers simply need a high-quality camera that reliably captures images. The Performance Series allows organizations to have the best of both worlds,” said Mike Scirica, global vice president of marketing, Honeywell Video Systems. 

Honeywell will exhibit and take orders for the new Performance Series cameras at ISC West 2008 in April. For more information, visit
