Early Adopter Program Terms
Last updated: September 12, 2022
It is Honeywell’s (“we”, “us” or “our”) pleasure to welcome influential individuals from a limited group of companies to the Early Adopter Program where you will have the unique ability to influence features and capabilities during our product development (“EA Program”). By clicking the “I Agree” button on the Early Adopter enrollment page, you agree to be bound by these terms. If you are accepting these terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent to us that you have authority to bind that entity and its affiliates to these terms, in which case the terms “you” and “your” shall refer to such entity and its affiliates.
Early adopters are a critical part of Honeywell’s product development lifecycle. Your industry expertise and unique viewpoint are huge advantages in ensuring our offerings are targeted at the right problems, usable by the right personas and focused on solving specific, higher order challenges for your leadership and your broader industry. Together, we can reinvent the way your industry operates and digitally transform.
As part of the EA Program, you will get the following:
- Access to certain software, hardware (whether ours or from a third party), software-as-a-service and/or services, roadmap and related documentation, that are not yet generally available, including un-released products and capabilities indicated on the Early Adopter enrollment webpage (each an “Offering”)
- Expert training on leveraging the Offering
- The opportunity to be a thought leader within your organization and industry
- The opportunity to network and collaborate with a diverse team of experts and thought leaders
In return, we will rely on you to:
- Provide in-depth details around your daily challenges and activities
- Provide feedback on our Offerings and critical guidance to influence product roadmaps and enhancements
- Serve as a reference customer by providing quotes, public statements and/or recorded statements regarding the Offerings and your experience in the EA Program
- Engage with us on a regular basis to demonstrate and discuss the Offering

You are responsible for installing and returning the sensors (in accordance with our specifications or instructions), and for providing the Wi-Fi/LAN connection, utilities, and network access necessary for your use of the hardware or the Offering. You shall not modify, reconfigure, or otherwise tamper with the hardware or use it for any purpose other than the EA Program. You will return all hardware to us in good and undamaged condition within 10 days after the term of the EA Program. We reserve the right to charge you market price for any lost, unreturned, or damaged hardware. Title to the hardware remains with us. Risk of loss or damage shall rest with you. Freight charges for hardware will be pre-paid and invoiced separately at actual cost. You shall not export or reexport the Offerings to any country outside of the United States without our prior written approval.
The Offerings, these terms, and any information disclosed as part of the EA Program is confidential and must not be disclosed to any third party without our prior written consent. The EA Program does not create any binding obligations on us to develop or sell, or for you to purchase, any product, service or offering. Your participation in the program is voluntary and we can end the EA Program at any time. Any descriptions of future product direction, intended updates, or new or improved features or functions are intended for informational purposes only and are not binding commitments and the sale, development, release, or timing of any such products, updates, features, or functions is at our sole discretion.
Thank you for your collaboration and we are excited for your participation in the EA Program as discussed herein.
