FEBRUARY 20--Honeywell (Morristown, NJ;www.honeywell.com) and Visionics Corporation (Jersey City, NJ; www.visionics.com) have announced a collaborative alliance for the marketing of facial-recognition biometrics systems through Honeywell's global network of branch offices and affiliates. The alliance enables Honeywell to incorporate Visionics' Biometric Network Appliance (BNA) platform--with encapsulated FaceIt facial-recognition technology--as part of its Enterprise Buildings Integrator solution. The underlying plug-and-play architecture of the BNA platform allows Honeywell to deploy facial-recognition capabilities on new and existing customer sites to help meet evolving security needs.

The Enterprise Buildings Integrator is a technology platform that integrates core-building systems and subsystems including security, digital video, access control, life safety, and HVAC into a complete facility-management solution. The BNA platform is a technology framework for building scalable biometric solutions. It consists of network-ready elements, programming logic for connecting the BNAs to each other or to standard security and information systems, and the core-enabling FaceIt technology, whose functionalities are encapsulated in the BNA components.
