Does Honeywell's Maxpro VMS Software Support The New HQA Recorders?

I don't usually touch Honeywell systems, but as I understand it, Maxpro VMS is a software client for all of your various Honeywell recorders. I just don't see any Honeywell documentation that confirms that their HQA recorders are compatible.

Thanks in advance!


Short answer: no. I worked for a Honeywell dealer previously and I brought up the lack of compatibility of their OEM gear as an issue numerous times. I still bring it up now and then when I see my old rep. They see them as two totally separate entities and don't see why anyone would want them compatible.

I think they see why. They just know it'd kill their main line of products.

I'm OK with a Maxpro SE NVR though, right?

In my short research I believe all of the MaxPro NVRs (XE, SE, PE) are compatible with the MaxPro VMS software. I was also hoping the "Performance Series" NVRs (same as HQA but all IP) would be compatible with MaxPro VMS. The recorders are very competitively priced as well as the cameras (OEM Dahua I believe).

Ethan, I am curious if you could provide some feedback on your experience with Honeywell when you worked for the dealer? Looking on some feedback on their products and if their smaller business products/solutions were worth it or if they are only a good fit for larger enterprises/municipalities.
