Honeywell HUS – Master of the Universe
HONEYWELL’S HUS solution is designed to monitor and manage different kinds of analog video system, digital video surveillance system, intrusion and access control system, seamlessly integrating them into one powerful security management interface. HUS can also provide remote management function and fulfill customer’s needs of reliability, complexity and flexibility.The HUS solution incorporates key functionalities like Digital Video Management, Multi-Level Video Management System, Virtual Matrix System an Advanced Video Processing Solution, Distributed Authentication, Intelligent Threat Analysis and Authority Log Management. The HUS runs on standard servers and offers end users a powerful and capable system for integration of all security systems into a single intuitive client. Honeywell’s HUS is designed for large-scale network with multi-level management to integrate analog matrix, DVR, Streamer, intrusion system and access control into one interface for the convenient third-party monitoring and management. HUS integrates advanced technologies including CIP, OSS, DES, DVM, MVMS, VMS, UDI, MDI, TPII, HWS, VEMS/GIS, AVPS, DAS, ALR and SES.The HUS is designed to give a stable, safe, strong and open system operation to meet the security needs of different industries such as city surveillance, banking and finance, commercial or public buildings, and the transport industry. HUS can provide comprehensive management across different levels in the network and support resource sharing. A key element of this is the advanced digital security management interface with an open framework structure to realize various functions, such as advanced integration platform, event and control centre, advanced video processing, solution, virtual matrix system, GIS based map, distribution authentication system, sequence engine system and parameter adjustment.Based on users’ level and identification, HUS integration interface can implement remote management of video surveillance, customer site instant image on emap, information comprehension, real-time video listing, real-time multi-image monitoring, camera control, image review, advanced video processing solution, remote video automatic-checking and GIS-based map, equipment information management, video surveillance proof with alarm/event checking, web configuration management and remote control and operation.
Functionalities of HUS
Specific functionalities of HUS include a web configuration center with user management, facility management, system log and etc. The way this works is that an event and control server receives and controls events and commands of different formats via different communicating ways, integrating the third party alarm, video and access devices. A streaming server stores and forwards video from various remote DVR devices or decoders. This ensures a smooth transmission when streaming video at various bandwidth levels.Also important is the HUS video client, a monitoring console of multiple mutually connected DVRs, simultaneously supervising multiple front-end DVRs and automatically uploading alarms from the front-end end. This HUS video client can implement video broadcast on a WAN through the streaming server and wide-ranging monitoring and alarm receiving through EC Server (Event and Control Server). Also integral to the HUS is an E-Map Client Electronic vector map system based on GIS. It implements concentrative management of multiple alarm spots and video monitors since they can be displayed in one map in the system, receiving alarms, video monitoring, linkage processes and more. The system supports importing vector map file, static picture and CAD file type as the geographical layer file. It includes the settings of video client which assists the E-Map client in playing the video.In addition, an IE browser can be used to access a web configuration centre which implements remote management. System input includes feeds from video monitoring systems, alarm systems, access control systems and the 3rd party systems or devices. The main window of HUS video client consists of work space (operation and setting), video window, alarm information and menu. The main window includes a video list containing all videos in the system which is put in folders. Each folder can have a maximum of 16 video channels or several sub-folders; a folder represents a set of video channels and videos of these channels can be played in another video window. Other functions possible include dragging and dropping the video, adding video channels and searching video.Real-time surveillance is also possible using the video window, with indicators at the top left of the video window displaying the status. You click the button at the top right to turn off irrelevant video channels in order to relieve the network bandwidth. Real time surveillance functions include video window switching, display in full screen, alarm information list, playing alarm video, alarm log management, multi-view preview and three special view modes.There’s also a ‘My profile’ window which allows operators to view or modify the information of the current user.Management function include adding and saving video groups, modifying the channel name, PTZ control, modifying video parameters, searching video, search video by time/event and search for multi-channel historical video by time, by event, by multi play and by video download. The HUS also offer full patrol settings to play videos of multiple channels in limited windows. Each patrol includes several patrol scenes and each patrol scene includes several video channels. It plays the videos in a patrol one by one with specified time interval.
