Honeywell signs agreement with Egypt to develop NAC security system
US-based Honeywell has signed with the New Administrative Capital Company for Urban Development (NACCUD) contracts to develop a digital security system in the new capital. “Honeywell will deploy city-wide security and surveillance systems as part of the first phase of development, in collaboration with its partner MTI, to integrate security systems across the capital into a single point of control, known as an Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC),” the company said in a press release. NACCUD Spokesperson Khaled El Hosseini had told the domestic press the contract was worth USD 31 mn. More than 6,000 cameras will be installed as part of the agreement “to monitor crowds and traffic congestion, detect incidents of theft, observe suspicious people or objects, and trigger automated alarms in emergency situations,” the company said.
