Impact by Honeywell, a brand created by the Fortune 100 Company to address the growing segment of the middle market in India, has announced the launch of three locally developed products to address the unique problems of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the country. These “Make in India” offers include an AC controller that can save up to 30% in energy costs, an AI-based video surveillance offering and a DIY connected smoke detector. The brand is also expanding its reach across major e-commerce platforms for these plug-and-play connected products and solutions.
Designed in India, the Impact by Honeywell product portfolio has been designed to increase productivity, improve security, reduce costs, and improve compliance for SMB customers in and beyond Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities.
“India is a global center of innovation, production and sustainable growth. Since launch, Impact by Honeywell has created a strong product portfolio by leveraging local Honeywell engineering talents in design, hardware and application-based software capabilities, ”said Ashish Modi, President, Honeywell Building Technologies, Asia. “The depth of our engineering experience in India allows us to understand local requirements and has helped us create a local-to-local manufacturing ecosystem. We are excited about the strong demand for our products and look forward to continuing to expand our offerings to serve our customers in India, ”added Modi.
The Impact AC Controller is a battery operated DIY offering created for small to medium sized commercial buildings. These categories of buildings do not typically rely on central air conditioning for their cooling needs, typically using split, cassette and window air conditioners (remote controlled) that require human intervention to turn on or off. The AC controller ensures that ACs are not left running in unoccupied booths, meeting rooms, conference rooms. Alternating current is the main consumer of energy in small and medium-sized buildings. Honeywell’s offer has the potential to save businesses up to 30% on their energy costs.
Impact’s AI-powered video surveillance offering includes a built-in camera-processor setup, which scans on Edge and instantly and intelligently sends alerts to the user through a mobile app. This eliminates the need to invest in expensive servers or increase network bandwidth to perform video analytics. The product uses proprietary algorithms and offers data analytics through its cloud infrastructure. It is offered with a subscription-based engagement model.
The Impact Wireless Smoke Detector is a DIY offering for buildings where elaborate installations of fire detection systems are not possible. This product provides basic fire safety to the masses and will be sold on major e-commerce platforms in India.
“Impact by Honeywell enables us to reach more building customers by providing them with products that are easy to use, install and maintain and better suited to their needs to help them save on their operating costs,” said Jasmeet Bhatia, Managing Director, Impact by Honeywell, Honeywell Building Technologies. “The DIY functionality of these products also allows us to offer them on e-commerce platforms to make them more accessible to these customers,” added Bhatia.
