Honeywell Launches Enhanced Galaxy TouchCenter With Proximity Reader

Product Profile

Honeywell's new Galaxy TouchCenter Prox is an innovative and enhanced version of the popular Galaxy® TouchCenter keypad. The new integrated proximity reader is designed to reduce the number of false alarms and police call-outs due to operator errors such as incorrect PIN entry. The customer experience is simplified and the integration of the innovative proximity function means the keypad is now fully compliant with UK standards.

The TouchCenter touch screen keypad with graphical display simplifies programming and provides a more intuitive experience for the end user. Unlike regular keypads, logs are much easier to read and analyse and the management of users and multi-area systems is more straightforward, enabling end-users to easily manage the system. If users prefer a more traditional MK7 keypad instead of the new interface, a simple button allows them to switch to a standard 32 character display.

The Galaxy TouchCenter Prox also now incorporates a VGA high definition screen, allowing photo quality images to be displayed. This innovation, enabled by a simple SD card slot, provides a wealth of customisation options such as a family photo for a home owner or a company logo for a business. Installers can also use this tool to display their contact information and company logo on the keypad screen to drive sales and provide a quick point of reference for helpline numbers.

The new keypad also gives users access to an on-screen easy-to-navigate help menu that can address operational problems that the user may experience, and reduce or eliminate unnecessary calls to the installer. The help menu allows the user to access information about the system on a 24/7 basis and also removes the need to store a printed instruction manual that is easily damaged or misplaced. 

"Since launching the Galaxy TouchCenter we have seen a strong demand from our customer base for touch screen technology," said Yves Pichon, Marketing Leader, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Honeywell Security Group. "As smartphones and other touchscreen devices continue to gain broad consumer acceptance, we expect this to be a key area of innovation and growth for the industry as a whole. Honeywell is excited to be at the forefront of this new trend."
