Honeywell has announced a new Bluetooth-enabled device that brings connectivity to its BW portable multi-gas detectors so companies can monitor their employees’ safety remotely, respond to emergencies faster and avoid downtime.
The new offering, part of Honeywell’s Connected Worker portfolio, allows companies to add connectivity to hundreds of thousands of gas detectors in service today.
The new BW Connect attaches to Honeywell BW’s GasAlertMicroclip XL and X3 detectors, and GasAlertMax XT II detectors by sliding onto the charging port of the detector, and pairs to a smartphone via Bluetooth. Using the Honeywell Safety Communicator app, the detector relays information to the cloud, where it is accessible from any computer or mobile device with an internet connection. Safety managers can monitor gas readings from anywhere in real time, and coordinate a faster response in case of an emergency.
