For better connectivity and operability for gadgets on the go, Honeywell is expanding its presence in the consumer market with the launch of Honeywell Connections in partnership with Secure Connections. Honeywell Connections will offer a range of cables, surge protectors and adapters with a starting price of Rs 339 onwards. The company is betting on offering quality products backed by a three-year warranty and easy replacement policy.
Priced competitively, Honeywell Connections will be available in offline as well as online retail and will compete against the low-cost Chinese essentials.
According to Mohit Anand, CEO, Secure Connections, "We aspire to be the most trusted go-to brand for electronic essentials. We are excited to launch our new line of Honeywell Electronic Essentials, which will provide customers a rich and seamless connected experience with their electronics."
Honeywell claims to safeguard electronics by keeping them safe from any unexpected events such as lighting strikes, strong power surges or sudden blackouts. Available in three, four and six socket surge protector, these also offer device secure warranty coverage ranging from Rs 15,000 to Rs 30,000, in case of damage.
Honeywell is also offering car chargers in three variations - 1 AMP with single USB, 2.1 Amp with single USB and 2.1 Amp with dual USB; charge and sync cables for Apple and Android devices supporting fast charging and high speed data transfer; and adapters ranging from HDMI to VGA adapter, HDMI to mini display port adapter and VGA to mini display port adapter. Other offerings include HDMI cables and audio cables.
The current range sold in India will be manufactured in China. "But going forward, we will explore the possibility of manufacturing them in India. However, this isn't the top priority as currently we are focusing on expanding our market presence," added Anand.
