A single and flexible platform for access control solutions of any size

With its AMC2 Access Modular Controller, Bosch Security Systems presents a common and very flexible technology platform for access control solutions of any size. It can be used in small and midsized installations based on Bosch's Access Professional Edition as well as in large deployments managed by the Access Engine as part of the Building Integration System (BIS). The AMC2 supports very flexible designs, allowing to mix and match Wiegand and serial controllers as needed. One device can control up to eight access points, and virtually any number of controllers can be connected to the management console using any combination of Ethernet and/or RS485 communication. A broad offering of expansion boards adds even more flexibility as it allows to increase the number of inputs and outputs and even to implement additional Wiegand reader ports. Using a three layer architecture with intelligence of every level, AMC2 based access solutions offer a very high degree of reliability and stability. The controller stores all necessary information locally in a battery-buffered memory and a compact flash card. This enables it to carry out independent authorization checks on access points, take access decisions, control closing/opening elements and register movement events even when offline. Once online again, it will transfer all data to the superordinated access control system. In addition, the AMC2 adds another level of supervision through its integrated LCD screen, displaying important status information. While supporting a broad range of applications today, the AMC2 is also designed to adapt to future requirements and technologies. Every piece of software within the controller can be modified via a remote software connection, enabling an easy upgrade to newer versions.

Bosch doubles capacity of its Access Easy Control System

Easy expansion without additional investmentsSeamless integration of access control and video surveillanceSupports latest Video SDK and hybrid recordersBosch Security Systems doubles the capacity of the Access Easy Control System, its access control solution for small and medium sized applications. Through a firmware upgrade, the AEC panel now allows a second BUS connection adding 16 readers to the same controller, enabling each controller to support a total of 32 readers. It can now also monitor up to 32 supervised auxiliary inputs and control a maximum of 32 auxiliary relay outputs, doubling these figures as well.The new firmware v2.1.6.1 also makes it easier to seamlessly integrate access control and video surveillance for an additional layer of security. For this, the Access Easy Control System supports a maximum of 128 video channels with up to 3 channels per door. The new firmware now adds compatibility to the latest Bosch Video SDK that includes connections to Bosch 700 series DVR. This DVR is the first Bosch embedded digital recorder to offer hybrid functionality with support for 8 or 16 analogue cameras and up to 8 H.264 IP video streams. With up to 4 TB internal storage and optional RAID-4 protection, this 700 series was designed for applications that demand the highest levels of data availability.The new firmware allows customers to extend the area managed by the AEC without the need to buy additional controllers, lowering overall cost without sacrificing the system's ease of use. Being entirely web-based, the AEC can be managed locally or remotely using a standard web browser.
