G Series Control Panels Comply with the Buy America Act

Our D7412GV3-USA and D9412GV3-USA Control Panels and the D1255-USA keypad now comply with the Buy America Act. This status provides you with more opportunities to use these products in applications that call for compliance.

With robust features that include NIST Certified Rijndael Encryption, GV3 is the product of choice for many commercial, military and government installations. It is the newest release in our popular G series line and offers dealers greater flexibility in system design and faster programming and servicing capabilities.

A 32 bit 50 MHz processor – the most powerful microprocessor within this segment – drives the GV3 Control Panels. The processor provides fast keypad responses when operating the panel, and integrating to access control or building automation systems.

For easy upgrades, firmware updates are possible utilizing a field flash update key. This capability eliminates the need to replace memory chips – helping them be more efficient at customer sites.

The panels also offer features to provide more options for system design. Up to 32 areas, programmable for interior and perimeter arming, provide enhanced flexibility to control access within a facility. Contact ID reporting enables monitoring by central stations that use receivers from other manufacturers, and support for wired IP and GSM/GPRS communications helps meet a wide variety of installation requirements.

New Dinion HD 1080p Day/Night IP Cameras

The Dinion HD 1080p Day/Night IP cameras are the latest additions to the Bosch HD portfolio. The cameras combine full HD resolution images with excellent low light operation and color reproduction to provide an advanced level of detail for their surveillance applications.

Dinion HD 1080p Day/Night IP cameras deliver uncompromising vision even in busy, colorful scenes. A specially selected image sensor delivers superior detection and analysis. Images are exceptionally clear, making it easier to identify items, while different color tones can be distinguished even in poor lighting.

The two megapixel cameras enable easy identification of faces, objects and alphanumeric information over a wide area. Operators can zoom in to any part of a scene to examine specific details without losing clarity. Conforming to the HD standard, the cameras produce images in the 16:9 aspect ratio that provides increased situational awareness with a maximized field of view.

Built-in Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) flags alarm events on screen to ensure operators never miss suspicious activities. The higher pixel densities captured by Dinion HD 1080p cameras enable optimized performance of IVA with improved detection for loitering, line crossing and other potential threats.

Installation and set-up is very simple. The cameras start-up quickly and have a user-friendly control interface that allows fast configuration. The motorized automatic back focus makes it easy to get the sharpest image the first time and ensures accurate focus for both day and night operation. Power over Ethernet support ensures no additional power supplies are needed, and the cameras are extremely energy efficient. The cameras also conform to the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standard, ensuring they integrate easily with third-party security solutions.

The Dinion 1080p Day/Night IP cameras feature a new, next-generation camera design. The cameras have a professional look and feel, are constructed with careful attention to detail, and have an extended operating temperature that makes them suitable for hot or cold climates. They are ideal for a wide range of applications, especially those involving complex, colorful or low light scenes, including city surveillance, arenas, airports, finance and banking facilities, and casinos.
