Honeywell acquires intrusion detection specialist RSI Video Technologies

March 28, 2016
France-based RSI will become part of Honeywell Security and Fire, a business unit of Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions. 

Honeywell announced that it has acquired privately held RSI Video Technologies (RSI), a global provider of intrusion detection systems for commercial and residential security applications under the brand Videofied, for approximately $123 million (EUR113 million).

RSI will become part of Honeywell Security and Fire, a business unit of Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions. RSI's wireless battery-powered motion detectors with built-in cameras deliver live, high-quality video over the cloud to central monitoring stations and end-users. Honeywell says the acquisition enhances its ability to meet the increasing global customer need for video verification, and also brings to the company a unique do-it-yourself (DIY) offering, combined with professional monitoring.

"The industry has been looking for ways to reduce the burden on local law enforcement resources responding to false alarms," notes David Paja, president of Honeywell Security and Fire. "RSI helps reduce false alarms by providing cost-effective indoor and outdoor video verification solutions to dealers and central monitoring stations."

Founded in 2000 and based in Strasbourg, France, with key operations in Minnesota, RSI has one of the largest installed bases of video-verified alarm systems in the world, with more than 1 million installations in more than 60 countries. It has approximately 110 employees in France and the U.S.

"RSI complements Honeywell's industry-leading security portfolio, and brings significant new technology and software that provides added value to our security dealers and channel partners," commented Alex Ismail, president and CEO, Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions.
