Galaxy Flex Night set Mode and Smartphone App for Universal Access Bring Real Benefits to Users

Honeywell announced it has upgraded Galaxy® Flex integrated intruder and access control solution with a ‘night set’ mode, a new compact housing design and a Galaxy Range Mobile App for remote access. Galaxy Flex, with hybrid wired and wireless technology, is perfect for both homeowners and small to medium size businesses.

Galaxy Flex can be used by installers as a standard piece of equipment, regardless of whether it is being integrated into a commercial or residential building. This flexibility provides great benefits for both installers, who are able to install the product quickly and easily without the need to learn how to operate a new system, and for users who can choose a solution that has both residential and commercial benefits.

In addition, the new ‘night set’ mode allows homeowners to create separate night-time security set-up, providing protection while they are asleep. This feature enables users to arm only the sensors needed to protect the house perimeter or isolated areas of the house. It also provides a silent mode, removing audible tones during arming and hence allowing users to set the alarm without disturbing others in the house. This feature allows for easier programming for user set-up, which saves installers time on the job.

The new firmware also provides a set-up wizard, which simplifies the process of setting up simple alarm signalling to a monitoring station, with or without a back-up signalling path over telephone lines, broadband or wireless GSM/GPRS links. This provides huge benefits for installers allowing them to take full advantage of fast, reliable signalling solutions without the need for extensive training or prolonged set-up times.

Our new compact housing design provides an ideal solution for systems that do not require several additional add-ons to the basic panel and where space is limited. The new housing provides benefits to installers for quick and easy installation in both residential and commercial settings.

The prevalence of smartphones and tablets means that mobile applications are becoming an increasingly popular way of providing services to consumers. The enhanced  Galaxy Flex solution capitalises on this ongoing trend by allowing users to access the system remotely – anytime, anywhere – through their own broadband connection by easy download of the ‘Galaxy Flex Range Mobile App’ from any application store.

Accessing Galaxy Flex via its mobile app allows easy remote control of the system at the touch of a button. Features such as status reporting, set and unset, control of groups, outputs and detailed log information can all be accessed on the go.

The Galaxy Flex Range Mobile App provides installers with additional benefits. Firstly, it reduces the cost to serve and supports customers by providing them with an easy way of accessing information and adjusting the service. Secondly, the availability of a smartphone application makes it more attractive for consumers who are increasingly looking for a security system that suits their lifestyle.

“The best technology embraces and incorporates changes in consumer behaviour,” comments Martin Pacitti, Galaxy product manager EMEA, Honeywell Security Group. “Our latest version of Galaxy Flex can be operated in ways that are familiar to people – using smartphones, tablets, apps – in addition to providing a robust and flexible security solution.”
