Bosch Doubles Capacity Of Its Access Easy Control System

Product Profile

  • Easy expansion without additional investments
  • Seamless integration of access control and video surveillance
  • Supports latest Video SDK and hybrid recorders

Bosch 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 analog 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.
