The New G Series Wins Best Intrusion Detection and Prevention Solution Award at 2015 New Product Showcase

The new B9512G G Series Control Panel has won the Best in Intrusion Detection and Prevention Solutions award in the Security Industry Association’s (SIA) 2015 New Product Showcase (NPS) program during the recent ISC West exposition in Las Vegas. This annual awards program recognizes innovative products and solutions in electronic physical security.

Our most powerful control panel yet, the B9512G provides an integrated security solution for large commercial applications. It is approved for combination burglar and fire alarm applications and features integrated access control, direct IP camera control as well as integration with Z-Wave devices to enable automation capabilities. Users also benefit from integration with the Bosch Video Management System and a free app that provides remote system control and video viewing. The B9512G offers complete security with a low total cost of ownership and easy operation.
“This award recognizes the new G Series for its innovative capabilities that set it apart from other security control panel offerings available today,” said Falk Herrmann, Vice President – Intrusion Systems Business Unit. “These include comprehensive integration of security and automation functions. Features such as a free app and flexible programming help dealers create new recurring monthly revenue streams, while future-proof technologies like a dual plug-in communication interface or IPv6 support provide a strong competitive advantage.”
Featuring significantly greater capacity than existing G Series models, the B9512G meets the requirements of a wide range of applications including office buildings, retail stores, banks, schools, government facilities, and more. It supports up to 2,000 users, 599 points, 32 areas, 32 doors, and 16 IP cameras.
“Each year, the companies competing in SIA’s New Product Showcase at ISC West present the leading-edge security solutions that are shaping the industry,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “These new technologies and solutions are the drivers that are moving the security industry forward, and I congratulate Bosch Security Systems on their win at this year’s NPS.”
The NPS is held in conjunction with the ISC West International Security Conference & Exposition in Las Vegas—one of the largest gatherings of security industry professionals. NPS was established in 1979 to recognize innovative products, services and solutions in electronic physical security. Technologies showcased through this program are used in the protection of life and property in residential, commercial and institutional settings.

SIA Education Sessions at ISC West

Headed to ISC West and participating in the SIA education sessions? Bosch is participating in two SIA sessions during the event:

Protecting the Protectors: Cyber Hygiene for Physical Security

Tuesday, April 14, 2015
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Sands Room 304

Cyber security events are not entirely preventable, yet experts in the cyber security field suggest that a significant risk of cyber incursions could be substantially mitigated if enterprises engaged in good “cyber hygiene.” These best practices are often well-known, simple common sense approaches that should be a part of an enterprise culture. Learn how to reduce risk to your network and enterprise by identifying the most common sources of risk and exposure that can be prevented by effective cyber hygiene.

Gunshot Recognition Analytics: Delivering Actionable Information to Law Enforcement and First Responders
Wednesday, April 15, 2015
1:45 PM - 2:45 PM
Sands Room 307

The April 2013 attack on a Pacific Gas and Energy substation in San Jose, CA exposed the vulnerability of the nation’s electric power grid to vandalism and disruption. Captured on surveillance video, snipers opened fire on the substation for more than 19 minutes. By the time police arrived, the adversaries were gone. In that time, they knocked out 17 transformers that supply power to Silicon Valley. Replicated across the country, incidents such as these could take down the U.S. grid and black out much of the country bringing the economic, social and political fabric of the country to its knees.

Predicting these events is impossible and we may not be able to prevent them, but current technology exists to minimize the damage. This session explores the use of gunshot recognition technology that immediately provides actionable intelligence to first responders so they may reduce the time a shooter has to act and minimize casualties.
