Honeywell has revealed that it has acquired privately held RSI Video Technologies (RSI) for about Rs.8,117 million, a provider of intrusion detection systems for commercial and residential security applications under the brand Videofied.

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. The acquisition enhances Honeywell's ability to meet the increasing global customer need for video verification, and it also brings a unique do-it-yourself (DIY) offering combined with professional monitoring.

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 one million installations in more than 60 countries, stated the company. It has about 110 employees in France and the United States.

RSI will become part of Honeywell Security and Fire, a business unit of Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions. Honeywell Security and Fire is a manufacturer of electronic security and life safety technologies for commercial buildings, industrial sites and homes worldwide. With systems installed in millions of buildings and homes worldwide, RSI will benefit from Honeywell's global scale and channels and end-to-end security and fire offerings.
