Honeywell’s MAXPRO VMS (video management system) controls multiple sources of video subsystems to collect, manage and present video in a clear and concise manner. MAXPRO VMS intelligently determines the capabilities of each subsystem across various sites, allowing video management of analog or digital video devices through a unified configuration and viewer. The subsystems can be analog matrix switches or digital/network video recorders allowing both analog or digital input to be viewed on an analog or digital monitor. Users can benefit from using traditional analog systems and IP-network systems at the same time to ensure maximum use of their initial investments. These subsystems range from Honeywell matrix switchers, DVR/NVRs and 3rd party systems.

MAXPRO VMS supports emerging technologies in the industry, like 4K resolution, H.265 smart video compression codec, multi-imager cameras and fisheye cameras. Customers can fully utilize the advantages of superb video quality with 4 times the details over 1080p HD, 30%~50% less storage expense (when compared to H.264 compression), and seamless 180° and 360° surrounding surveillance. Furthermore, MAXPRO supports the native integration with Honeywell equIP® series IP cameras. The advanced camera features, like “Click & drag” 3D PTZ control, license plate recognition, intelligence events and bounding boxes on objects detected by specific video analytics, help surveillance operators to efficiently protect people, property and services.

MAXPRO has database redundant and 1+1/N+M NVR failover features for unforeseen/maintenance scenarios in enterprise and critical infrastructure applications. Once there is a failure on NVR equipment, system database or network, the redundant and failover feature can continue to support the system functions with minimal interruption. Incidents will be reported in a system log for future auditing and reporting.

Control of MAXPRO VMS can be through a traditional joystick controller, mouse or even through third party interface. The extremely powerful rules engine (Macro’s) allows customization of the system to respond and control in the best possible manner for the application.

With MAXPRO VMS R670 a new Intelligent Command Web Client is introduced, client is introduced, offering intuitive map navigation across sites, buildings and floors, and camera live view pop-up, instant playback and alarm indication on maps, as well as bulk camera firmware and password updates, a new System Health Dashboard for Video Devices such as Recorders and Cameras which enables customers to obtain situational awareness and manage their facility efficiently. A new Safety Compliance Dashboard for Healthy Buildings KPI’s provides ability to view compliance and incidents from a single view.

MAXPRO VMS is highly scalable so users can easily expand their video surveillance network
from small to medium single instances to enterprise level supporting thousands of devices. Additionally, MAXPRO VMS includes integration with Honeywell’s Pro-Watch® security management system, Active Alert® and People Counter video analytics, as well as other Honeywell products and solutions. The feature-rich user interface truly offers a unified management platform across many disparate systems to further embody Honeywell’s concept of “Learn One, Know Them All.”


MAXPRO VMS is ideal for facilities requiring at-risk critical infrastructure protection such as airports, seaports, large multisite commercial buildings, casinos, and other high-profile facilities. It is the perfect client-server video management solution for locations requiring the use of both digital and analog technologies.
