Honeywell NetAXS Access Control Profile

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Jan 06, 2016

Honeywell is one of the biggest names in security, and one of their most popular offerings is web based access. Inside we examine Honeywell's NetAXS platform's target market, pricing, key strengths and biggest gaps for access control.

Profile

Honeywell's access offerings include several separate platforms, each positioned to a different market and installer segment. NetAXS is a panel based, webpage client small system platform, available to ADI customers servicing small to medium businesses. NetAXS is a serverless, edge controller system without the bells and whistles of more advanced platforms.

For larger, heavily integrated, enterprise scale systems, Honeywell offers Prowatch, a platform we will cover in a different profile. Of note, that particular line requires dealer training before reselling or services is allowed, while NetAXS essentially is open to any ADI customer.

In part due to ADI's substantial distribution availability and brand awareness among end users, NetAXS is typically represented by dealers already familiar with the relative design and nomenclature of Honeywell's alarm systems, especially the Vista line of intrusion panels. NetAXS is an easier transition for alarm installers to sell, service, and install than other more complex access systems.

Comparison Chart

The table below contrasts Honeywell NetAXS versus relative competition based on common differentiation factors like system size, platform 'openness', ease of video integration, and how the product is sold or available:
