New Honeywell Cameras are More Secure

by Scott Hightower

Honeywell recently released a new series of IP surveillance cameras dubbed the 30 Series line.  These new cameras are loaded with features including 50-meter smart IR illumination, video resolutions up to 5 megapixels, wide-dynamic-range with great low-light performance, onboard SD card storage, and secure stream encryption.

One other key feature of these cameras is that they comply with a new government regulation knows as NDAA Section 889.  NDAA is also known as the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019. Section 889 of this law includes prohibitions on government use of video surveillance technologies manufactured by certain overseas manufacturers.  Specifically, the language in section 889 states:

“For the purpose of public safety, security of government facilities, physical security surveillance of critical infrastructure, and other national security purposes, video surveillance and telecommunications equipment produced by…” and then continues by listing specific manufacturers whose equipment is prohibited for purchase by the federal government.

The new 30 Series cameras from Honeywell do not contain any hardware or components from manufacturers who are banned by this law.  And, with secure stream encryption, they provide a more secure solution for protecting your video while still generating excellent video pictures.
