Turn Intrusion Panels into Hubs to Meet Customer Needs

When customers come looking for a way to protect a facility against intruders, they may be thinking of an intrusion system with motion, glass break and possibly beam detectors. Their questions may focus only on costs and basic capabilities, so it is up to the integrator to educate them on the comprehensive solutions that are available.

Customers understand their basic needs, but they look to the integrator for the best way to address these requirements. If they come with a specific system in mind, ask a few probing questions to get them thinking about their needs in a new way.

Explain how the intrusion control panel can act as the hub that enables integration of other technologies for a system that addresses their security concerns while reducing cost and complexity. Integrating additional technology with the intrusion system provides a customized solution.

Combine Systems
Systems that integrate intrusion, fire, and access can provide significant value and convenience. The system can automatically disarm when an access door is opened, or lock the doors when the system is armed. If a fire alarm occurs, the doors can unlock to allow for fast access by first responders. Users benefit from easy operation with only one system to learn, while gaining a lower cost of ownership.

Monitor for Business Efficiency
Using the intrusion system to monitor doors and hatches, or even refrigerators/freezers and more, when the system is disarmed allows it to expand beyond security to help users better manage their businesses. The system can be programmed to allow normal use, but ensure that a door is returned to normal by activating a local alert or sending a report if it has been open too long. Flexible delays can be programmed to reduce the chance of a nuisance activation, while still maintaining the desired security. This can be used to alert that a loading dock door is still open after a delivery is completed, helping to reduce HVAC costs and prevent unsecured doors during business hours. Monitoring roof hatches can reduce risk of damage from adverse weather conditions if a hatch is inadvertently left open. With refrigerators/freezers, it can alert retail store or restaurant personnel if equipment is malfunctioning, preventing loss of perishable goods.

Integrate Video
Video can provide situational awareness when control panel events occur. Tampering with a motion detector causes the intrusion system to trigger a nearby camera to send a video snapshot via email or text to facility or security personnel. 

Cameras equipped with video analytics can also initiate intrusion system events when pre-defined alarms are triggered. An analytic alert can fault a point on the system’s control panel, which prompts the panel to communicate the alarm to the central station or to send a video snapshot to the user. This helps to alert to potential risks before or as they occur—such as detecting a perimeter breach after hours.

Integrating intrusion detection and access control technologies within the video management system gives users centralized control of security and video devices and doors. This increases efficiency and simplifies system operation.

Keep Watch Remotely
Combine these technologies with services that enable the monitoring center to intervene at the time of a security risk, and you have a powerful deterrent that may prevent damage and theft. Video monitoring services can enable an operator to intervene with audio. Once an alarm is transmitted to the monitoring center and verified through video images, the operator can take immediate action with audio intervention using a nearby camera that is equipped with a loudspeaker. If intruders are warned that they are on camera and that the local authorities have been contacted, they may leave the area.

Amp it up with Audio

Audio integration is also beneficial for initiating pre-recorded messages based on security events. For example, activating an emergency pull station or pressing a wireless panic button can trigger a public address system to play emergency instructions through a loudspeaker and notify facility personnel through two-way radios.

Add Automation

Adding in automation capabilities enables control of other connected systems, such as lighting, heating, cooling, and more from a smartphone or tablet for effortless home or business control. Integrators can program manual, scheduled, or location-based “scenes” that fit the customer’s needs. For example, the user can lock doors, arm the security system, turn off interior lights and adjust the thermostat by selecting Away on a smart phone app.

The examples described here demonstrate the many ways to increase security and make systems easier to use – providing customers with solutions that meet their needs in ways they may not have known were possible. With this achieved, the integrator becomes a trusted partner and advisor, which helps to establish a valuable long-term relationship.

No Smoke without Fire: MIC IP Cameras Keep a Watchful Eye above the Canopy of Poland’s Czarne Forests

As the “lungs of the earth”, forests play the crucial role of cleaning the ever-growing emissions produced by human industry. Once a forest fire strikes, timing is vital to bring it under control. Unfortunately, such blazes are usually only detected once they have already spread over a large area. To ensure the timely detection of smoke, the forest inspectorate of Poland’s densely forested Czarne Człuchowskie district turned to Bosch for modern, IP-based cameras.

Full 360º situational awareness Thanks to their full 360º rotation pan and 290º tilt control, two Bosch MIC IP 7000 cameras are all that is required to cover the district’s entire 25,000 hectares of forest for signs of fire. Both cameras display clear images in conjunction with precise coordinates. Once smoke is spotted by surveillance staff, a 30x optical zoom lens enables confirmation of a fire. This ensures a timely response to a blaze, thus greatly limiting damage.

High definition, weather-proof imaging
The camera units, mounted on special 60-meter-high fire masts, provide full awareness even in the most extreme weather conditions, and thanks to rugged housings can operate in temperatures as low as -40°C or as high as +60°C. With a High Dynamic Range (HDR) of 120 dB, the cameras can provide detailed images of both bright and dark areas.

High winds are particularly challenging and can distort images. That’s why the Bosch MIC IP 7000 camera incorporates an image stabilization algorithm, which ensures reliable images, and is engineered to withstand high-impact or continuous low-frequency vibration.

BVMS 7.5 Enhances Forensic Capabilities and Openness

BVMS 7.5 will empower security operators to faster and more efficiently review video footage while increasing openness for storage.

Security operators are often challenged to quickly and efficiently review and collect video footage for incidents. With BVMS 7.5 playback performance is improved when operators are browsing through recorded video at high speed by skipping the rendering of frames, which are not visible to the human eye.

Additionally, BVMS 7.5 includes forensic search as a standard free-of-charge functionality, allowing operators to scan through huge recording databases for a specific event within seconds. The rules for the search are easily defined via a graphical user interface and can be changed even after an event. 

BVMS 7.5 has also further increased the openness of its system to allow for easy integration of third-party software and devices. Following the announcement of Bosch’s collaboration with Sony, BVMS 7.5 is now compatible with the latest generation of Sony cameras and storage devices from third parties can be more easily connected. Furthermore, the OPC (Open Platform Communications) server has been expanded making it easier for Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) Systems to control BVMS.

Finally, communication between the Operator Client and other system components can be exchanged through a single, secure and open channel, making it easier for system integrators to configure the system for remote secure access, using standard internet connections.

LECTUS secure Card Readers Expand to Support New Functionalities and Highest Level Encryption

We've extended the flexibility and security of our LECTUS secure Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP)* series with a new card reader and added functionality. Taken together, these expansions enable both economical adoption of the series and continuous encryption from controller to card.

The new LECTUS secure 1000 reader introduces a smaller form factor – mini-mullion – which has already been deployed successfully in the LECTUS secure Wiegand* series. Not only is this more compact version convenient to use, it comes at an attractive price point that facilitates adoption. For integrators and end users, the new LECTUS secure 1000 brings greater flexibility and enables a wider choice of form factors. It is also possible to mix various form factors in one system which provides a new option at an entry-level price. For installers, handling is identical to the other readers from established series (OSDP and Wiegand) and therefore well-known and easy to use.

We've also expanded the functionality of the complete LECTUS secure OSDP series. In addition to the models already supported, the reader series now supports Bosch-coded MIFARE** classic and MIFARE DESFire EV1 credentials.

The encrypted OSDPv2 protocol of this reader series delivers the highest security for communication between controller and reader. Now, Bosch-coded MIFARE and DESFire EV1 credentials ensure also the highest security between reader and credential.

The new solution also provides increased variety in compatible readers – previously only the LECTUS Duo series supported these credential types. Now with the inclusion of the LECTUS secure OSDP series, customers can choose between different reader models or even mix them according to their specific needs.

*About OSDP and Wiegand protocols: OSDP and Wiegand are communication protocols for interfacing card readers with control panels.

**About MIFARE credentials: MIFARE is the trademark of a series of chips widely used in contactless smart and proximity cards. It is one of the most popular contactless smart card technologies in use.

New In-Store Video Analytic Solution for Retailers

In-Store Analytics is a solution to provide retailers with valuable insights on store traffic for improving operations, customer engagement and sales.

As part of the solution, Bosch IP panoramic cameras are installed to provide high visibility of the retail floor. The cameras use on-board Intelligent Video Analytics to create position data of shoppers’ movements. This data is then sent direct to the cloud where it is further processed without video streams ever leaving the retailer’s premise, thus maintaining shopper’s privacy. Unlike many systems that need on-site PCs to pre-process the video streams, limiting their performance to a few cameras per site, Bosch’s solution easily scales to cover even the largest retail stores with a high camera count and large multi-store chains.

In the cloud, position data is mined into performance results and visualizations that are shared with the retailer through customized web interfaces for merchandisers and operations managers.

For merchandisers, In-Store Analytics delivers shopper behavior insights to enable more informed decisions. Sales of retail products often depend on their placement within the store and at what point shoppers see the items on their journey through the retail floor. In-Store Analytics provides merchandisers with store traffic visualization tools, such as a flow analysis, to determine if shoppers are moving through the store in the way that they intended. The solution shows where shoppers walk, stop and dwell, and provides performance metrics such as engagement times and rates, based on the actual number and behavior of shoppers at a display. This helps merchandisers evaluate the performance of each display in the store, providing them the information they need to increase customer engagement with products, which can lead to increased sales and revenue.

For operations managers, In-Store Analytics provides insights into department and store level traffic. Operations managers can use these insights to ensure sufficient staff is onsite to serve shoppers during peak times. Traffic data also enables retailers to track customer service quality over time.
“In-Store Analytics was developed based on input from retailers who stressed the value of actionable data,” said Chris Larcinese, Regional Marketing Manager for Bosch

Retailers will benefit from actionable insights from the solution, as the shopper data delivered by In-Store Analytics has a high accuracy rate. This is due to the superior reliability of the Intelligent Video Analytics that comes standard on Bosch FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 MP cameras, as well as the advanced cloud-based processing algorithms that filter the shopper position data according to individual store environments.

Bosch Emphasizes Intelligence, Integration, and Increased Revenue for Customers at ISC West


At ISC West 2017, we will introduce new intelligent devices, demonstrate the power of integrated security and communications solutions, and highlight products and services to help customers increase revenue. Visitors to the Bosch booth will see a completely new portfolio of IP cameras, video analytics that extend surveillance beyond security, services that create recurring monthly revenue opportunities for dealers, and an innovative all-in-one wireless multi-sensor that can be configured as a door/window contact, water or tilt sensor.

“With Bosch technology and services, integrators can design intelligent systems that better mitigate risk, enhance facility control, and provide business benefits outside of their customers’ traditional security needs,” said Brian Wiser, President of Sales – North America. “Our solutions help integrators provide added value to customers by improving safety, increasing efficiency, and delivering business insights based on video data. These capabilities give our channel partners advantages over their competitors, helping them win business and drive growth.”

Intelligent Devices
At ISC West, we will introduce a renewed portfolio of IP cameras, all featuring video analytics at the edge as a standard feature. The IP 4000i, IP 5000i, and IP 6000i fixed dome, box and bullet cameras provide indoor or outdoor, day or night, discrete or visible video security. And with built-in video analytics as standard, they offer the ability to start repurposing captured video data for uses other than security alone. The AUTODOME IP 4000i, 5000i and 7000i locate, track and zoom in on objects quickly and easily. With a resolution of 1080p and 30x optical zoom, users can easily identify objects over large distances and have total control over what they choose to see.

MIC IP moving cameras combine a rugged design with built-in Intelligent Video Analytics that is specifically designed for the most demanding environments. Even in the most extreme conditions, video analytics can further improve the level of security or enable the video data to do more than security alone. The new MIC IP fusion 9000i camera offers a unique feature in terms of video analytics: metadata fusion. It fuses the metadata of the camera’s built-in optical and thermal imager, providing users with full situational awareness regardless of the video stream that is being watched. For example, even if the source of an alarm is not visible in the optical imager stream, the thermal imager will still detect it and alert the user—helping them focus on unseen things that need attention. Another innovation offered by both MIC IP models is video analytics in motion. An operator is alerted, or the camera’s Intelligent Tracking feature is triggered, the moment a moving object or person is detected while the MIC IP camera is panning, tilting or zooming.

By offering built-in video analytics as standard, Bosch enables customers to interpret video data at the source and to re-assign it to help them make smarter business decisions. In the future, video analytics will help customers achieve up to 100 percent utilization of the huge amounts of video data collected—using the hidden potential of video to monitor presence to reduce utility bills, identify patterns in customer activity, and much more.  

In addition to video analytics as standard, the new portfolio of IP cameras includes the latest intelligent bitrate management techniques combined with H.265 compression to reduce bitrate by up to 80 percent. The cameras also feature various software and hardware measures, such as a built-in Trusted Platform Module, to keep video data secure.

At the show, we will also introduce In-Store Analytics, a solution that uses intelligent Bosch IP panoramic cameras to give retailers valuable insights on store traffic. This cloud-based service uses position data generated by the cameras to provide detailed information on how shoppers travel through a store and interact with the displays. This helps retailers evaluate the performance of displays to give them the information they need to increase customer engagement with products and drive additional sales.

Increase revenue with new services
Bosch will also highlight its Installer Services designed to help customers build their recurring monthly revenue. These include cellular data plans for intrusion and fire control panel communications, services for home or business automation, and a Remote Connect Cloud service for remote programming and end user app connectivity for B and G Series integrated security solutions. Installer Services from Bosch help dealers maximize revenue and streamline operations with the ability to manage the services through an intuitive web portal. 

A Remote Portal service also makes it easier to connect to Bosch cameras and recording solutions. Using Remote Portal, dealers can increase the efficiency of technicians and create chargeable services for monitoring, maintaining and configuring these devices remotely. As a result, technicians spend less time and money traveling to customer sites.

Integrated security and communications solutions
ISC West attendees will learn how Bosch B and G Series Control Panels enhance security with intrusion and fire detection, access control, Bosch IP camera integration and remote command and control with free apps. Integration with Z-Wave, ZigBee and Wi-Fi devices for home or business automation is possible with the G450 Gateway, being previewed at the show.

Leveraging the full capabilities of B and G Series Control Panels enables email and text notifications for event alerts. Integration with Bosch IP cameras allows viewing images of system events, such as a video snapshot of the person who disarmed a system. Bosch IP cameras with video analytics can also activate points on the security control panel when alarms are triggered.

Integration with Bosch public address offerings, such as PAVIRO public address and evacuation systems or PRAESIDEO digital public address and emergency sound systems, is beneficial for initiating pre-recorded messages based on security events. Activating a pull station can automatically trigger the public address system to play emergency announcements through a loudspeaker as well as notify facility personnel through two-way radios using the Telex Radio Dispatch system (IP-224).

Monitoring security data is simplified with the Bosch Video Management System. Operators can view cameras and control panel status or events on a graphical map. They can also trigger messages or live speech to the public address system and control streams and doors, and arm and disarm the panels via the software. To enhance security around the clock, central stations using Video Monitoring Services from Bosch can verify alarms through live and recorded video before dispatching authorities.

Integrated systems are possible whether customers choose a complete Bosch solution or use software from another provider. Bosch IP cameras and control panels are compatible with solutions from a range of industry partners.

Innovative wireless sensors
Bosch continues to expand its family of wireless detectors for use in ZigBee compatible security and home automation systems. The portfolio now includes two motion detectors, a Pet Friendly PIR as well as the only ZigBee certified Pet Friendly TriTech on the market, using a combination of PIR and Doppler radar to minimize false alarms. A new door/window detector is also being launched. This innovative device supports the widest magnet gap width of any door window contact, providing installation flexibility and maximum false alarm immunity from misalignment or changing installation conditions. With a built-in Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) based sensor, the same compact device can also serve as a tilt or water sensor to provide dealers with the ability to detect leaks or floods, freezing conditions, and more. Every transmission from these detectors also includes temperature and lighting condition readings for use in improving the energy efficiency of home automation systems. In addition, a new glass break detector being previewed at the show brings Bosch’s industry-leading false alarm immunity and detection performance acoustic based signal processing technology to a ZigBee compatible device.

Searidge Technologies Selects Bosch Cameras to Support Airport Surface Management Solutions

HungaroControl and Searidge Partnership for a
Remote Tower implementation project at Budapest Airport
Searidge Technologies, a global provider of Remote Tower and Surface Optimization solutions to airports and Air Navigation Service providers (ANSPs), has successfully integrated Bosch IP cameras into its solution offering.

Searidge leverages the Bosch MIC IP starlight 7000 HD pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) and DINION IP starlight 8000 MP cameras to help airport operators monitor and manage surface operations, safely and efficiently. The ability to monitor live traffic, day and night, and in all weather conditions is critical to operating an airport around-the-clock, 365 days per year.

As part of the Searidge offering, video streams from multiple Bosch starlight cameras are stitched together and run through sophisticated processing algorithms to deliver seamless panoramic views of the apron, gate, taxiway, and runway areas of the airport surface. Video is displayed live to users, such as air traffic controllers, airport operators, security personnel, and more, and is archived for future playback and review.

“The critical nature of our customers’ airport operations requires high camera reliability and visual output,” says Thuan Nguyen, Head of Operations, Searidge Technologies. “We selected the Bosch starlight line because they offer proven quality, backed by strong sales and engineering support.”

Bosch starlight cameras are designed to deliver excellent images in the lowest light conditions. They produce full color images in the dark beyond the point where other cameras have switched to monochrome. The DINION IP starlight 8000 MP camera offers five-megapixel resolution and provides excellent color performance even with minimal ambient light. The MIC IP starlight 7000 HD are ruggedized PTZ cameras built to withstand harsh conditions, including extreme temperatures, rain and snow, high wind gusts and vibration.

Bosch starlight cameras are currently deployed by Searidge Technologies to support a variety of surface management operations in airports worldwide, including its Remote Situational Awareness and Zone Occupancy solution at Dubai International airport, Remote Tower solution at Budapest Airport, and Remote Airport concept of operation at Milano Malpensa and Linate airports.

“The integration of Bosch starlight cameras with the innovative airport surface management solutions developed by Searidge Technologies is an excellent example of how video surveillance can extend beyond security to improve operations and efficiency for facilities worldwide,” said Jacquelyn Hall-Davies, Vice President of Sales, Canada, for Bosch Security Systems. “The Bosch team is proud to have supported Searidge Technologies with projects here in Canada and look forward to future deployments of the solution around the globe.”
