A new dummy dome has been launched by Bosch Security Systems as part of its FlexiDome camera range. The dummy is intended for use in applications where multiple, working models may already be installed, but where further deterrents may be desired. The product resembles the FlexiDome VF and is delivered, ready to install, with a Surface Mount Box. Each product has a three-year warranty."Although a dummy, the housing and mounting is such that real cameras can be added as required, either retrofitted as new, or ‘moved' from existing internal FlexiDome models. This gives the customer greater flexibility," explains Dave Mulcahy, CCTV Product Manager, "as potential miscreants will not know which of the cameras is real, and may therefore think twice before taking action."Add to Compare

Three new models have recently been added to Bosch’s range of FlexiDomeXT plug-and-play, vandal-resistant fixed-dome cameras to extend distance and space functionality. The new models, on show at this year’s IFSEC, provide an additional choice of three new auto-iris VariFocal lenses for wider angle capture of between 24 and 105 degrees. This enables full coverage of confined spaces such as elevators, bank vaults or prison cells. A telephoto lens is also available with a very narrow angle of 24 degrees, suitable for close-up views in, for example, banks or retail stores. An additional new lens, with a speed of F1.2, is designed for sensitive low-light scenes. NightSense, an innovative feature already available with Bosch’s Dinion camera range, is also now standard with all FlexiDomeXT colour cameras. NightSense increases three-fold for maximum image quality at very low light levels to allow around-the-clock surveillance and surveillance in areas with extremes of shadow. FlexiDomeXT surface-mounting possibilities have been extended with two additional options – the Pendant Wall Mount, with a curved conduit assembly, for vertical surfaces; and the Pendant Pipe Mount for ceiling mounting with unobstructed view. Other features of the FlexiDomeXT range include:Line-block with phase adjustment (AC- & DC-compatible) Backlight compensation to avoid underexposure Proprietary pan/tilt/rotation mechanism for easy adjustment Compact, modern design and flush mounting Water- and dust-resistant, for both indoor and outdoor use Optional conduit-compatible hard-surface mountingAdd to Compare

It had been a particularly slow night. The plant security guard had just made his rounds on this Sunday evening shift. As soon as he passed the weighing scales, he could enter the guard shack and get off his feet. Challenging a curious incident However, on this night, he noticed the waste vendor’s truck sitting half on and half off the scale. He stopped dead in his tracks to see if the truck would back up and completely sit on the scale. It never did. The observant guard walked up to the truck and challenged the driver who seemed surprised. “Hey, you’re not weighing your truck properly.” The driver fumbled for a response before replying, “Sorry, I was on the phone with a friend. I didn’t notice it.” But this security guard had the presence of mind to demand the driver’s phone. The driver was caught off guard and surrendered the phone. The guard then pulled up the most recent incoming/outgoing calls and saw no calls during the last 30 minutes. “I don’t think so.” “You don’t think so what?” The security guard was frank, “You haven’t used this phone in over half an hour.” The truck driver sheepishly acknowledged the fact. It was decided to install CCTV covering the weighing area and scales – no easy feat due to poor lighting Preventing crime as it happens Knowing the driver was lying, the security guard ordered the truck back on the scale for a correct weighing and advised the driver that he would report the incident. The security guard wrote up his report and handed it off to his supervisor who, in turn, contacted the local corporate investigator. This investigator was soon on the phone with his boss at corporate headquarters on the other side of the world. Together with Security, they decided to install CCTV covering the weighing area and scales – no easy feat due to poor lighting. However, once completed, they waited. They would not have to wait long. For the next two months, the waste vendor trucks, filled to the brim with production waste, black-and-white paper and other waste products from the plant, would stop on the scale only for a moment and then drive the front half of the truck off the scale for weighing. It was obvious that the vendor was cheating the company by only paying for half the waste. After two months, it was decided to catch the next cheating driver “en flagrante.” Sure enough, the next truck went half on and half off the scale and was weighed. Security then asked the unsuspecting driver to park his truck and invited him inside the building to talk to a supervisor. The driver signed an incriminating statement about the scheme and his role therein. They sent him on his way asking him to keep it quiet Waiting for the driver in a large office was the local investigator and his close friend, the Head of Security. After a difficult interview, the driver admitted to cheating on the scales over a two-year period—he claimed that some of the scale cheating was done at the direction of the vendor’s management, while some of it he did himself by “ripping off” the vendor—which he acknowledged was dangerous. Working with authorities The driver signed an incriminating statement about the scheme and his role therein. They sent him on his way asking him to keep it quiet—they would see what they could do for him later on. In the meantime, Corporate Investigations had received a due diligence report on the vendor company which contained disturbing news—the company and its managers were associated with a countrywide waste management mafia. The report suggested that the vendor had a reputation for thefts and involvement in numerous lawsuits regarding thefts and embezzlement. Shockingly, no prior due diligence had ever been conducted on the vendor. Fortunately, the plant’s finance and audit team had maintained good records over the past 5 years and were able to re-construct the amount of waste going out the plant door and the amounts being claimed and paid for by the vendor. The discrepancy and loss stood at a multi-million dollar figure. After consulting with the local police authorities and company lawyers, it was decided to pursue a civil case against the vendor. Pursuing legal action The regional lawyer, the Head of Investigations, the Head of Security and the CFO invited the vendor to discuss the problem. Some of the evidence was shown to the vendor’s CEO who became indignant and, in order to save face, promised to fire the truck drivers and to repay any losses for the last two months. Inter-dependent entities - security, investigations, finance/audit and legal - combined their resources and agendas to form a unified front That was not enough for the company and a protracted legal battle ensued which lasted several years and resulted in the vendor’s paying almost the entire amount in instalments. The vendor was dropped from the contract and internal controls strengthened—the only plant employee dealing with the waste issue left the company and was replaced by two individuals. The plant also began paying more attention to the waste process and less to the production side. Several “lessons learned” come to mind. First, the tripwire came in the person of an astute and well-trained security guard who exhibited some of the best characteristics you want to see from men and women in that profession. The Security Department was also adept at installing the CCTV and capturing the fraud live on videotape. But a far greater lesson was learned—of what can happen when inter-dependent entities (security, investigations, finance/audit and legal) within a company combine their resources and agendas to form a unified front. The results speak for themselves.
In the past year, we have continued to see that the global security market is both dynamic and evolving. The term “security” no longer means simply protecting the perimeter of a building; it also involves securing corporate networks and sensitive data. In 2016, this trend was driven by a change in organisational threats. Businesses as a whole are much more focused on cyber-threats, a growing paradigm that challenges business and security leaders to stay one step ahead of crime and fraud trends. A string of recent high-profile breaches, including several involving government agencies, exposes the vulnerabilities faced by organisations across the globe. Cyber-attackers are holding data for ransom, stealing personally identifiable information, selling sensitive data and destroying critical networks. These threats, which encompass cyber, IT, and physical security, force leadership to recognise the potentially damaging disruptions if risk is not controlled. Internet of Things In 2016, we continued to see significant discussion centred on the promise of the Internet of Things (IoT). At the same time, demand for more mobile capabilities has altered the way people and businesses connect and collaborate. As the demand for network connectivity increases, so too does the need for increased security for physical assets, networks, and valuable corporate data. As a result, we experienced a growing dialogue between IT, cyber security, and physical security teams to help gain a greater knowledge of how to best collaborate. In the coming year, stakeholders must continue to communicate closely to assist in determining vulnerabilities in a more proactive manner. In 2017, we will continue to see Big Data analysis and IoT-powered devices allow for the collection of myriad data points across systems, services, and devices. This process will allow businesses to investigate threats in a more intelligent manner. It will be the organisations that generate actionable intelligence from collected data points that will be firmly positioned to achieve their strategic intelligence and business objectives in the coming years. In 2017, we will continue to see Big Data analysis and IoT-powered devices allowfor the collection of myriad data points across systems, services, and devices Comprehensive security strategies Overall, the alignment of risk management, IT, and business continuity will allow leaders to realise a comprehensive security strategy that takes into account cyber and physical security, and helps leaders proactively recognize threats. Today’s leading global enterprises focus on preventing risk to ensure long-term business continuity. We at Verint practice the same concept, combining physical security, IT functionality, and cybersecurity efforts to help enable our organisation to realise comprehensive intelligence. It has worked well for our business over the past year, and we aim to help our customers achieve the same level of efficiency and knowledge as we reach 2017. Actionable Intelligence is the core of what we do at Verint. We believe that the collaboration of various stakeholders, business functions, and strategies allows organisations to be more focused, effectively identify threats, develop trends, and quickly access relevant data to meet evolving business requirements.

ONVIF, a global standardisation initiative for IP-based physical security products, held its annual membership meeting in November, providing ONVIF members with an overview of important activities of 2019 and plans for the year ahead. Attendees heard presentations on the growth of ONVIF, as well as plans for new profile development. ONVIF Chairman Per Björkdahl highlighted the forum’s achievements over the past year, particularly the market’s continued support for the profile concept, with the number of conformant products surpassing 13,000 earlier this year. With six profiles to choose from and additional ones in development, ONVIF profiles have increasingly been included in various bid and specification processes in projects around the world, making it the de-facto interface in the industry. Björkdahl also noted the continued involvement of ONVIF in the International Electrotechnical Commission’s work on international standardisation, in addition to new proposals for cloud connectivity and interoperability between multiple systems. Video Enhancement Working Group The overarching goal of ONVIF is to provide to the market a single interface through which every system can operate As is tradition, ONVIF recognised the contributions of multiple individuals from various ONVIF committees. Steve Wolf, who served on several ONVIF committees on behalf of Pelco, received the ONVIF Service Award, which acknowledges individuals who have provided a long-term commitment to the organisation. While serving on the Technical Committee, Wolf led the Security Working Group, and was also an active participant in the Video Enhancement Working Group, contributing to a number of improvements in how ONVIF approaches video. Andreas Schneider of Sony received the ONVIF Distinguished Service Award, which recognises individuals who have made significant contributions to ONVIF over many years in multiple functions. Schneider’s long-term service to the Technical Services Committee has positioned him as a major facilitator of the ONVIF organisation, with contributions to multiple ONVIF profiles. Physical access control standards “The overarching goal of ONVIF is to provide to the market a single interface through which every system can operate,” said Björkdahl. “Our honorees have shown significant and long-term commitment to our organisation, in turn making this goal a reality one profile at a time. We thank both of our recipients for their innovation, hard work and service.” ONVIF Technical Committee Chairman, Hans Busch of Bosch, spoke to members about the specification development roadmap, which highlights plans for future profile development, as well as the continued alignment to the standardisation activities within the IEC TC 79 working groups for video surveillance and physical access control standards. Specifically, Busch covered what specifications are being examined for future profiles, and how they complement and further enhance existing ONVIF profiles. IP-based physical security products ONVIF continues to work with its members to expand the number of IP interoperability solutionsAs chair of the Technical Services Committee, Sony’s Schneider gave an overview of the committee’s work on new and existing profiles, client and device test tools, updates to the conformance process and tools, and the Developers’ Plugfest. Shi-lin Chan of Axis Communications, who serves as chair of the ONVIF Communication Committee, provided a recap of ONVIF communication efforts in 2019, and discussed ONVIF’s plans for the launch of a Mandarin website later this year. Founded in 2008, ONVIF is a well-recognised industry forum driving interoperability for IP-based physical security products. The organisation has a global member base of established camera, video management system and access control companies and more than 13,000 profile conformant products. IP interoperability solutions ONVIF offers Profile S for streaming video; Profile G for recording and storage; Profile C for physical access control; Profile Q for improved out-of-the-box functionality, Profile A for broader access control configuration and Profile T for advanced streaming. ONVIF continues to work with its members to expand the number of IP interoperability solutions ONVIF conformant products can provide.
Located in the Southern Vietnamese metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City, the Deutsches Haus office tower is a symbol of cooperation between Germany and Vietnam. Opened in September 2017, it is the country’s first building to earn LEED (leadership in energy and environmental design) Platinum environmental certification and serves as a cultural, commercial and diplomatic hub in the region. Next to the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany the 25-story building with a 40,000-square-meters floor area is home to regional offices of international firms such as VISA, Adidas, Schneider Electric, and Bosch Vietnam. As premium amenities, Deutsches Haus also features a gourmet cafe, multifunctional conference and events area, health club, and rooftop restaurant. Creating a challenging security environment Deutsches Haus needs to meet the highest security demands: All security systems, including security guard teams From a security manager’s perspective, this multi-use blend of diplomacy, business, and leisure facilities – in a building fully accessible to the public – creates a challenging security environment. As the seat of the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany, Deutsches Haus needs to meet the highest security demands: All security systems, including security guard teams, have to be approved by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany. Adding to the challenge, Deutsches Haus is located opposite from the Consulate General of the United States of America – and in close vicinity to the Consulate General of France and the British Consulate General – on a busy intersection between two main streets. Therefore, monitoring pedestrians and automobile traffic on the building’s perimeter is just as crucial to end-to-end security as tracking public and high-security areas on the inside. Detecting security events automatically In search of an adequate video security solution, the team at Deutsches Haus knew that high-definition cameras alone would not suffice. The reason: When several hundred cameras are required to secure an area of this size, personnel tend to be overwhelmed by the amount of video feeds. After only 20 minutes, the average operator misses 90 percent of important scenes, as studies have proven. Bosch experts covered the building and its perimeter with network security cameras For this reason, modern IP security cameras feature Intelligent Video Analytics – using algorithms and AI-based image recognition – to support operators by detecting security events automatically. Bosch experts covered the building and its perimeter with network security cameras featuring built-in Intelligent Video Analytics. Indoor areas like the entrance doors, reception area, lobby, café, as well as parking garages and corridors to the fire escape staircases are monitored by over 170 DINION IP starlight 7000 HD and FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 MP cameras. Alerting security personnel of illicit behaviour The building’s elevators are also protected by Bosch cameras. Thanks to built-in-intelligence, IP cameras automatically alert security personnel of illicit behaviour, for instance persons accessing restricted areas. The building’s perimeter and parking lot are safeguarded outdoor-approved AUTODOME IP starlight 7000 HD cameras with pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) capabilities. Integrated with a third-party solution to open barriers for authorised vehicles, the cameras can automatically track moving objects such as cars and pedestrians – and warn personnel of threats – with their 30x zoom lens while obtaining images under low light conditions via Bosch starlight technology combined with Intelligent Video Analytics. As a key requisite, the networked cameras are able to withstand the city’s four-month rain period and prove resistant to vandalism. Enhancing safety of building occupants The staff can easily announce and notify a building guest about a forgotten purse which was left in the café PAVIRO, the Public Address and Voice Evacuation system of Bosch was installed in the building for the safety of building occupants. The PAVIRO solution makes it possible for occupants to feel safe in the building while enjoying high quality music and excellent Public Address speech intelligibility. The staff can easily announce and notify a building guest about a forgotten purse which was left in the café. To make building evacuations as efficient as possible, the PAVIRO solution provides phased evacuation: automated messages direct occupants to immediate safety. Next to this, building occupants and guests can also enjoy high-quality music in the rooftop restaurant, café, health club and event areas which of course contributes to the nice building atmosphere. Providing government-grade security For the building owner, PAVIRO can establish long-term cost-saving and minimise total cost of ownership. The system is especially eco-friendly because less amplifiers are needed due to power-load sharing of the amplifier architecture, which in turn requires fewer batteries. Since opening day, the Bosch system has provided government-grade security at Deutsches Haus in Ho Chi Minh City. “I am proud to have Bosch both as a tenant and as a brand who secures Deutsches Haus with their high quality and reliable video security cameras and sound systems,” added Ryan Lower, Property Director, Colliers International – Deutsches Haus. While meeting the challenge of securing diplomatic and enterprise assets in a publicly accessible building, the future-proof solution provides an important reference in this dynamic market.
IP 3000i cameras offer something that the market has never seen before in such competitively-priced cameras; built-in Essential Video Analytics as standard. It opens up new possibilities for IoT applications and smart data capture that help to improve security and even go beyond it with video analytics features such as detecting blocked emergency exits or queue notification. Smart solutions that until now, have not been available to customers looking for a cost-effective video surveillance solution. Advanced intrusion detection Previously, built-in intelligence was only available from the IP 4000i range and above. But, true to our philosophy of offering intelligent systems for everyone, applications suitable for such cameras can now also benefit from solutions that go beyond security and obtain valuable data for business intelligence. The IP 3000i portfolio includes a range of four form factors that are highly affordable Essential Video Analytics is perfectly suited to these smaller applications because it can be used for advanced intrusion detection such as identifying a person entering a pre-defined field, loitering, or leaving an object behind. Another use case for Essential Video Analytics is it can be used to enforce detected blocked exits or analyse behaviour including people counting which can be used to improve customer service. So in addition to a competitive price tag, IP 3000i cameras add even more value for businesses. Everyday surveillance in standalone installations The IP 3000i portfolio includes a range of four form factors that are highly affordable. It offers complete flexibility for everyday surveillance in standalone installations such as small retail stores or for general surveillance in commercial buildings, offices and banks. Even general security applications rely on excellent image quality to safeguard people, premises, and property. With this in mind, Bosch IP 3000i cameras offer resolutions from 1080p up to 5MP, up to 30 fps and a High Dynamic Range of 120dB. The outdoor models also have built-in infrared as standard, enabling them to capture high-quality images – even in complete darkness. The FLEXIDOME IP turret camera also has this infrared feature for indoor surveillance. Providing greater protection One of the key advantages of choosing Bosch security cameras is ease of installation. The IP 3000i cameras are no exception. Mounting and cabling for these cameras are split into three easy steps, eliminating the need to juggle the camera and power tools and making the whole process significantly easier. IP 3000i cameras can easily be combined with DIVAR hybrid and network units for a plug and play solution The mini dome and turret versions come with a new mounting plate that helps to achieve this. The bullet base already behaves as a mounting plate and the micro-dome is directly mounted. The FLEXIDOME IP 3000i IR is also compatible with our modular accessories. Also, the ‘pigtail’ on all form factors has been replaced with cable management that enables clean, streamlined installation through a grommet with a smaller hole to provide greater protection against water ingress. Video security solution An RJ45 connector can be threaded through the grommet using a special tool bundled with every camera. This eliminates the need for installers to terminate the RJ45 cable during mounting. Finally, should a complete video security solution be required, IP 3000i cameras can easily be combined with DIVAR hybrid and network units for a plug and play solution. IP 3000i cameras offer Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction and intelligent streaming, combined with H.265 video compression. Depending on the content of the scene, this reduces bitrate by up to 80%. It helps to keep video data manageable, while substantially reducing network strain and storage requirements – all without compromising the quality of the video being captured. In addition, like all Bosch network cameras, the IP 3000i models are designed with various hardware and software measures to keep video data secure, including a built-in Trusted Platform Module to safeguard encryption keys.
