Imagine a fire started in your client’s home. Through Honeywell’s Internet Connection Module (ICM), the security system is triggered, a buzzer sounds to wake occupants, the HVAC system is turned off so smoke doesn’t circulate through the air vents, and lights on the exterior of the home flash on and off to let the neighbors know something is amiss. This is just one of the many applications provided through Honeywell’s IP-based web server protocol. ICM lets users monitor their homes over the internet, providing easy and affordable control via web interface.
