Bosch Security Systems news

Bosch focuses on data and IoT-enabled integrated security solutions at ISC West 2018

At ISC West 2018, Bosch Security and Safety Systems will showcase new hardware and software products and tools to make installations and upgrades easier and more attractive for integrators, integrated security systems that deliver significant business benefits for end users, and solutions to further increase data security in video surveillance. Visitors to the Bosch booth will see a new app that makes planning and pre-configuration of video systems more efficient, an enhanced communicator for upgrading fire and intrusion control panel communications, and a video surveillance solution from Bosch and Genetec offering high level end-to-end data security. “Bosch continues to introduce new ways to help integrators be more efficient in their installations and more creative in the way they solve their customers’ issues, resulting in higher profitability for them as well as improved satisfaction for their end users,” said Brian Wiser, President of Sales – North America, Bosch Security and Safety Systems. “Whether in the form of technology to ease configuration and programming or systems that work seamlessly together to drive IoT-enabled smart solutions, Bosch empowers integrators to implement systems that address the security needs of their customers and deliver additional value to their business which might go beyond security functionality. These are powerful tools to help integrators differentiate themselves in this competitive market.” Bosch will introduce the Project Assistant app that makes reporting for video systems projects more efficient Easier installations and higher profits At ISC West, Bosch will introduce the Project Assistant app that makes planning, pre-configuration, commissioning and reporting for video systems projects more efficient – by up to 30% – and more profitable. With the free app, project set-up and pre-configuration can start in the office without the physical camera. With only the project plans and a set of IP addresses and passwords from the end user, integrators can enter all details into the app or upload them via a Microsoft Excel-compatible file format. Additional information like camera name and location can also be added without having the cameras present. Creating a virtual set of cameras within the app eliminates the need for unboxing and re-boxing of products or pre-configuration and labelling, providing significant time savings. Once on site, installers use the app to scan the Bosch cameras’ QR codes to match the virtual cameras to the real ones. Project Assistant will automatically connect the corresponding camera to the virtual camera within the app via Wi-Fi or cable and allow the integrator to write the pre-defined settings to the camera. After connecting to the camera, the integrator can also use the app to setup the field of view, adjust image sharpness and change additional settings if needed. Bosch will showcase the B465 Universal Dual Path Communicator, now featuring connectivity and programming enhancements B465 Universal Dual Path Communicator For upgrading intrusion and fire detection systems to keep pace with changing alarm communications technology, Bosch will showcase the B465 Universal Dual Path Communicator, now featuring connectivity and programming enhancements. The B465 communicator links a control panel’s digital dialer to an Ethernet connection and/or to a cellular module to send reports to the receiver at the monitoring station. This allows end users to eliminate expenses associated with up to two dedicated phone line connections per control panel, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership for fire or intrusion alarm systems. At the same time, integrators can create a new recurring revenue stream for cellular data service plans to increase their profits while still reducing monthly costs for the end user. Remote Connect Cloud service With the new enhancements, integrators can remotely program the B465 communicator via Bosch’s Remote Programming Software and use the Bosch Remote Connect Cloud Service to connect to it. Cloud connectivity to the B465 communicator eliminates the need to change customer router settings, firewall rules, or to use Domain Name Service (DNS) to access the device remotely. Bosch will also highlight its Installer Services to help customers reduce costs and build recurring revenue. These include cellular data plans for control panel communications, services for home or business automation, and the Remote Connect Cloud service for remote programming and end user app connectivity. The Remote Connect Cloud service is now free for installers when used only for Remote Programming Software connections. This makes panel installation easier, reduces the need to send technicians to job sites for firmware updates or user changes, and enables remote diagnostics for increased efficiency. Bosch IP cameras also feature a built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to safely store certificates and cryptographic keys High level end-to-end data security Bosch will also focus on educating attendees about the importance of data security and introduce a video solution with even higher end-to-end data security. The data security measures built into Bosch IP cameras are now fully integrated with Genetec systems, including Genetec Archiver and Security Center. The integration ensures that all communications between Bosch cameras and Genetec Archiver and Security Center are assigned a certificate including keys for authentication. This electronic signature enables the system to verify the legitimacy of network components, like cameras, storage units, and viewing clients, before network-wide communications start. Bosch IP cameras also feature a built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to safely store certificates and cryptographic keys used for authentication and encryption. All operations for authentication and encryption are only executed inside the TPM. Encrypted video data is then sent from the camera to the Genetec Archiver using SRTP (Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol). Genetec Archiver and Security Center management software and clients use a certificate to authenticate to the Bosch IP camera for further protection against hacking. Stored data stays encrypted and data is transmitted via SRTP, so confidentiality and data protection are guaranteed. Together, Bosch and Genetec provide one of the world’s best secured data security solutions. The addition of the new “i” Series to Bosch’s lineup of cameras creates a robust portfolio of intelligent devices Intelligent devices Bosch’s new portfolio of intelligent “i” Series cameras featuring built-in video analytics as standard will also be on display in the Bosch booth. The addition of the new “i” Series to Bosch’s existing lineup of analytic-enabled cameras creates a robust portfolio of intelligent devices. Video analytics is an important enabler to substantially improve levels of security and to deliver significant business advantages also beyond security functionalities. For example, in addition to alerting operators to any potential threats, video analytics can be used for enforcing health and safety regulations – such as no-parking zones – or for monitoring presence to reduce utility bills, identifying patterns in customer activity in a retail store, and much more. Sony: imaging the future The video security business continues to benefit from Sony’s uncompromising focus on advancing imaging technologies well beyond market trends while defining paths to growth and innovation for the future. A private technology suite will provide a partner only preview of what is coming in the mid-term, proving a continued focus and investment of Sony’s security solutions. At the booth, Sony will be introducing the new SNC-HMX70 360-degree Hemispheric-view Camera for 24/7 situational awareness without any blind spots. Thanks to its 12-megapixel CMOS sensor, SNC-HMX70 provides excellent image quality as well as high-resolution video at 30 fps, offering value beyond security-related applications for retail stores, banks, office buildings, casinos and more. It is also the first Sony camera to include powerful on-board video analytics capabilities. Other highlights from Sony include additional lens kit options for Sony’s industry leading 4K SNC-VB770 camera as well as a full lineup of industry-leading low light cameras. Bosch will simulate a retail store within its booth where visitors can experience how integrated solutions improve overall safety and security IoT-enabled integrated solutions ISC West attendees will also learn how Bosch security control panels, video surveillance and analytics, access control, and communications technology work together to deliver increased security, efficient monitoring and control, automated audio announcements, and more. To demonstrate the full power of these solutions, Bosch will simulate a retail store within its booth where visitors can experience how integrated solutions improve overall safety and security, reduce shrink, and help retailers improve merchandising and operations. For example, visitors can see how pressing a cashier station panic button that is connected to the Bosch G Series Control Panel will display an alarm and video in the Bosch Video Management System (BVMS) as well as trigger the Telex Radio Dispatch system (IP-224) to issue an announcement on store personnel’s two-way radios. In addition, attendees can simulate a blocked emergency exit door to experience how Bosch IP cameras with video analytics will trigger a warning message to play in the area using the store’s Bosch public address system. Bosch loudspeakers – including pendant, ceiling, wall mount, and horn models – installed throughout the store and booth can be used for both announcements and background music. Also, using a keyfob at an access reader that is securing the door to the store’s back office will trigger an image to display on BVMS to allow the operator to verify the identification of the person requesting access. With Bosch In-Store Analytics, the cameras send position data of shoppers’ movements to the cloud Simplified security data In the store’s back office, visitors will see how monitoring all security data is simplified with BVMS as well as how Bosch IP cameras with built-in analytics can provide retailers with valuable insights on store traffic for improving operations, customer engagement and sales. With Bosch In-Store Analytics, the cameras send position data of shoppers’ movements to the cloud where it is processed without video streams ever leaving the retailer’s premise. Data is mined into performance results that are shared with the retailer through customised web interfaces for merchandisers and operations managers. This helps merchandisers evaluate the performance of displays and assists operations managers in assessing department and store traffic to ensure sufficient staffing. Bosch systems are designed to work together, making it easier for integrators to implement customised, IoT-enabled solutions that provide significant benefits for their customers. Integrated systems are possible whether customers choose a complete Bosch solution or use software from other providers. Bosch IP cameras and intrusion panels are compatible with solutions from a range of industry partners.

How video analytics maximise the value of your surveillance system

Despite the huge amount of video data collected, statistics show that only 10 percent of data is ever used and most loses its value within seconds of being generated. Why use such a limited amount of data? Many security organisations are focused on delivering the right information in case of an emergency or providing the correct evidence after a criminal act. Yet the fact is, a new video security system can be a large investment. Together with the service, maintenance and management costs associated with it, most video systems are currently considered overhead. So how can you maximise the value of your video system? Video analytics ensure surveillance images are continuously analysed in real-time to alert users to things that need attention. This helps organisations make sense of video data and adds an extra layer of protection by providing alerts to potential security risks before or as they occur, such as detecting loitering in a parking lot or a perimeter breach after hours.Integrating analytic alerts with other security systems enables organisations to use the data to trigger responses from other components of the security solution Video analytics can be programmed to alert on things such as line/perimeter crossing, illegal parking, loitering: people counting, speeding in areas like parking lots, colour matching alerts. These are just some of the ways video analytics can assist to enhance security and safety. Video analytics trigger system events Integrating analytic alerts with other security systems enables organisations to use the data to trigger responses from other components of the security solution. This can increase overall security, better mitigate risk, and reduce complexity for users to improve efficiency. For example, intelligent cameras equipped with video analytics can initiate intrusion detection system events when alarms are triggered. The analytic alert can immediately fault a corresponding point on the panel. This can prompt the panel to communicate the alarm to the central station or to send video snapshots to security personnel. In a retail store or warehouse environment, video analytics can also alert to an emergency exit that has been blocked by a pallet of boxes or by another object. Using an idle object rule, the IP camera with analytics can alert when an object remains in the area for longer than a pre-defined amount of time. People counting and crowd detection can also help organisations improve customer satisfaction by monitoring for long lines or people gathered in an area When this occurs, the alert can fault a point on the intrusion control panel, which can then send an email or text message with a video snapshot to the store or warehouse manager. This can help to prevent code violations and unsafe conditions. Extending beyond security Not only can video analytics detect threats, alert to security breaches, and help enforce health and safety regulations, it can also do much more. It can enable organisations to re-purpose the data for new uses for the business—offering valuable insights to other departments within an organisation, such as providing the ability to analyse behaviour in retail stores to help merchandisers create more effective display placements. How is this possible? Analytics can provide organisations with the additional information about video data that they need to re-purpose it for a business advantage. The cameras can interpret data directly at the source and re-assign it to help organisations make smarter decisions.By providing business information that goes beyond conventional security applications, new functionality can easily be added to a video security system This includes monitoring presence to reduce utility bills, identifying patterns in customer activity to improve sales, and distinguishing road blocks to optimise retail shop layout and increase customer satisfaction. Improving customer satisfaction People counting and crowd detection can also help organisations improve customer satisfaction by monitoring for long lines or people gathered in an area, indicating additional assistance may be needed. By providing business information that goes beyond conventional security applications, new functionality can easily be added to a video security system. In this way, video analytics can help organisations reduce costs, increase efficiency, and improve sales. The organisation gains greater value from the system and a return on investment that can be measured in tangible business results. Then, the video system is no longer considered overhead. Overall, using video analytics as part of an integrated security system and fully using the data gained from the analytics can help you better meet your organisation’s needs for security and extend surveillance data to deliver additional business benefits. I believe that every business should be able to take advantages of these advances in technology - without the need for additional investment or a license fee. Every business is different, and new analytics solutions should be adaptaple to meet your exact needs. Thinking beyond security opens up video analytics to revolutionise how video data will be used in the future and can take data usage to a whole new level.
