Integrated systems for critical security applications
Bosch Security is renowned for its use in critical infrastructure projects the world over. You’ll see Bosch in airports, railway transport, ports and logistics, universities, industry and public space security surveillance. Strong Intelligent video analytics and mature end-to-end system integration capabilities make Bosch the manufacturer of choice for high-end security applications.
Offering an all-encompassing security portfolio, Bosch Security Systems include CCTV, Access Control, Intrusion Detection and Fire Alarm solutions, whereas its Building Integration System (BIS) combines the different functions on one platform to provide an all-in-one management interface.
High-end security for projects of any size
Traditionally, the real power of Bosch has come to the fore in medium-sized and large, complex installations, but more recently Bosch has introduced high-end features in more affordable camera series that combined with Bosch network video recorders (NVRs) or video management software (VMS) offer advanced video surveillance with powerful Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) for smaller sites where a strong security provisioning is paramount.
Within the security industry, the Bosch DINION series and so called ‘Metal Mickey’ cameras are well-renowned for their superb performance and engineering quality. With the introduction of Starlight technology in 2012, Bosch set the benchmark for very low light performance, creating true 24/7 surveillance capability.
Open platform compatibility
Although Bosch products are most powerful in a Bosch end-to-end solution, Bosch security products are also well-supported by some open platform providers, such as Milestone Systems. In practical terms, this means that Bosch high-end video surveillance cameras can be used for some critical locations on a project, whereas in less critical positions lower-end cameras may be deployed.
