For years, Honeywell has profited from OEMing Dahua and using Huawei Hisilicon chips. Now, the company warned that products with Huawei Hisilicon violate the NDAA and advocated futureproofing in case the US government takes even stronger action against China.
In this note, we review Honeywell's August 28, 2020 webinar touting their "NDAA COMPLIANT VIDEO SOLUTIONS" in which they covered:
Past Steps, and Future Action by the Company Towards NDAA Compliance
How Suppliers Should Think About Protecting Themselves From Blacklisting
NDAA-Compliant Honeywell Products
We also review other Honeywell product series that are NDAA banned and yet continue to be sold, without declaration, from Honyewell.
Even though we don't fall under NDAA (Canada), Honeywell has been pushing us to buy the 60 Series camera. But they failed to mention they don't currently have a plugin for their own MaxPro NVR to support the 60 Series. They say "just use onvif driver" but you don't get the full feature set (namely, you can't use H.265).
As usual with Honeywell a patch is "just around the corner".
They still claim it's their own custom firmware running on the Performance Series and EquIP series, but I have my doubts.
