Honeywell’s Alarm Management suite allows security operators to monitor
real-time alarms from a large number of video analytics servers. The Alarm
Management Server (AMS) is a service that connects to a large number of
Honeywell video analytics servers to receive analytics alarms generated by these
servers. Multiple security operators on separate workstations can run separate
copies of Alarm Watch Station (AWS) client applications to connect to AMS and
collaboratively manage real-time alarms coming from all various analytics servers.
The alarm acknowledgement state modified by one operator can be seen on the
AWS by all other operators in real-time.
There are three components in the software that enable Alarm Management
functionality:
•Alarm Management Server – Running as a Windows service on the AMS PC.
It serves as a communications interface between all HVA servers and the Alarm
Watch Station client applications. AMS connects to HVA servers, stores all the
incoming alarms into a local database, and delivers these alarms to all the
Alarm Watch Stations that are connected to it.
•Alarm Watch Admin – A client application that allows the user to configure the
AMS. The user can add HVA servers for AMS to connect to, customize alarm
acknowledgement states that best suit the organization’s own alarm
management operation, and create user accounts to be used by AMS. Alarm
Watch Admin is one of the client applications included in the Honeywell Video
Analytics client package.
•Alarm Watch Station – A redesign from the previous version of Alarm Watch
Station, this client application now works with AMS to allow the user to view
and manage all the alarms coming from the list of HVA servers that AMS is
connected to. The user can view and modify the status of any alarm; the status
is shared across workstations and can be viewed by other operators. Alarm
Watch Station is one of the client applications included in the Honeywell Video
Analytics client package.

Alarm Management Server
•AMS has its own alarm database to store alarm data,
including acknowledgement states of all alarms for real-
time alarm management.
•User-defined alarm case management enables the user
to filter alarms by date, time, ,alarm severity, event type,
alarm classification, alarm acknowledgement and
analytics server.
•Customizable alarm acknowledgement states enable a
company to synchronize these according to their
internal alarm management protocol.
•Multiple security operators on separate workstations can
collaboratively manage real-time alarms from various
analytics servers; alarm action taken can be viewed by
all operators in real-time.
•Separate user account management for AMS results in
an added level of system security.
•Four types of user level permissions include Admin,
View Live Alarms, Modify Alarm State and Search.
CENTRALIZED ALARM MANAGEMENT FOR VIDEO ANALYTICS
Market Opportunities
The Alarm Management suite is an ideal solution for larger Honeywell Video Analytics systems, in addition to central
station monitoring types of applications.
