Bosch Security Systems AutoDome Cameras Enhance Security For Netherlands Police Force
Bosch Security Systems AutoDome Cameras Enhance Security For Netherlands Police Force

The last day of April 2013 was a historical date in the Netherlands. Following his mother’s abdication, Prince Willem-Alexander’s swearing-in as the new king means the country once again has a male monarch for the first time in 123 years. As a result, the program for the festivities on this Queen’s Day in Amsterdam was particularly comprehensive. However, this also posed a large challenge for Amsterdam’s police force, who had to monitor the large crowds expected around the castle on the Dam, as well as alongside the route of the celebrations. Another task, of course, was to shield the royal couple and the visitors from any attack. These concerns were justified not only because of the scale of the event, but also because of tragic incidents that occurred on Queen’s Day in the past.     For these reasons, Amsterdam’s police looked for a partner who was able to support them in terms of video surveillance as well as monitoring the streams of visitors. They decided on the Dutch company, Connection Systems, which specializes in the video surveillance of large-scale events and freely moving crowds. Connection Systems was founded in 2000 and has been utilizing Bosch Security Systems solutions from the very beginning.    In order to reinforce the police’s own monitoring network, 75 additional Bosch AutoDome cameras were installed in Amsterdam. These were integrated within the existing security network, and positioned six metres above ground level. In addition, the cameras were connected to 35 UPS boxes that would have maintained operations in the event of a power blackout. The installation of the surveillance system took three weeks and was ready in time for all the rehearsals necessary prior to April 30. This was to ensure that all likely risks during the event were covered, and that the police would always be in full control of the situation.    Connection Systems decided to use Bosch cameras for two major reasons: their robust construction makes them easy to mount and dismount, and the permanent availability of Bosch’s technical support service. Frank Wagemans, Director at Connection Systems, pointed out after the ceremonies that not one event had failed in the company’s history when using this camera solution. Thus, everyone involved in the investiture on April 30 will remember the event as having been run perfectly.     For more information on Bosch AutoDome products, visit www.boschsecurity.us.

Security System From Bosch Ensures Hannah Can Keep Its Eye On The Food
Security System From Bosch Ensures Hannah Can Keep Its Eye On The Food

A security system featuring more than 40 Bosch cameras has been installed at a food processing company, with some located in the deep freeze and operating at -23 degrees C.Hannah Foods is a family run business that has been serving the food service sector for more than 30 years. Based in Skelmersdale, the company underwent a £3 million expansion of the business in 2008 that integrated the cold store and chiller, so that all its products can be brought in from local, national and international suppliers and distributed by a fleet of temperature-controlled vehicles.   A number of installers pitched for the contract but following a full demonstration from Steve Dobby, Technical Sales and Support Manager at Bosch, Hannah Foods decided to opt for the majority of the equipment from Bosch. Mark Ashall, Operations Director for installer Unique Integrated Systems, says it was this demonstration that edged out the competition: “Once we were able to demonstrate the full capability of the Bosch cameras, the customer was only going to make one choice. Even those installed in the deep freeze are working flawlessly.”   The system includes a mixture of 40 Bosch cameras – 455 and 498 FlexiDomes, three 600 DVRs and a keyboard: “The original system was in dire need of upgrading and knowing the slightly different challenges of this site, we always had the Bosch FlexiDomes in mind. Once the customer has seen for himself the results delivered by the superior performance of the Bosch hardware, the budget was no longer an issue.” The FlexiDome 2X Day/Night camera is the ultimate solution for virtually any indoor or outdoor surveillance application, even under the most challenging lighting conditions. This vandal-resistant dome camera uses a 1/3-inch, wide dynamic range CCD sensor and incorporates advanced (20-bit) digital signal processing for outstanding picture performance. Anthony Whiteside, General Manager at Hannah Foods, says the security system has already proved invaluable: “Our old system was very weak and because of the poor quality of the images we could not prove someone’s involvement when a couple of incidents happened externally and internally,” he says. “The new system is working very well, better than expected in fact. One HGV driver was lining up to reverse into one of the loading bays and clipped the building. Had it not been for the cameras we would not have known who had done it and been thousands of pounds worse off because of the damage.”

Bosch Sets New Trend In School Surveillance With Integrated Fire And Security System Installed At Hallbergmoos High School
Bosch Sets New Trend In School Surveillance With Integrated Fire And Security System Installed At Hallbergmoos High School

Hallbergmoos High School is an educational site, a meeting place and a workplace for 15 teachers, more than 120 students and many participants of evening classes. The Hallbergmoos community in Upper Bavaria set a great example with their investment. The trend-setting Bosch security technology installed at the site soon proved its worth when young intruders were identified from recorded video images, allowing them to be apprehended just a few days later. Faced with such strong evidence, the culprits did not take long to confess.Business objective:The security system installed at Hallbergmoos high school should provide optimum security against intrusion, fire hazards and unauthorized access. The future-oriented and investment proof solution should also include a video surveillance system, an intrusion and a modular fire detection system, an access management system, a voice evacuation system and a clock system.Solution:The video surveillance system that provided the evidence for the recent intrusion operates with 13 vandal-resistant FlexiDome cameras and a Dibos-8 recorder. The NZ 300 Intrusion Alarm System from Bosch uses magnetic and bolt contacts to monitor the perimeters of the school building.The community benefits from the access management system, featuring an access control panel, with mechatronic offline brackets, proximity tokens and eight vandal-resistant readers outside the building.A Modular Fire Panel 5000 series from Bosch with 110 automatic fire detectors and 15 fire detection controls ensure comprehensive fire protection throughout the school.The system also controls the voice evacuation equipment in the event of an alarm. Under normal operating circumstances, the Plena Voice Alarm electroacoustics is used to ring the bell for recess and for transmitting announcements. There are 120 loudspeakers in total, spread over 14 public address zones; this allows announcements to be restricted to individual areas if necessary. The community benefits from the access management system, featuring an access control panel and vandal-resistant readers In addition, the access management system enables considerable medium and long-term cost savings: the replacement of cylinders due to damage or to keys being lost or finding their way into the hands of unauthorized parties is no longer an issue.To ensure class times are strictly regulated, Hallbergmoos high school uses a Bosch BoLine clock system in combination with 32 slave clocks and one RF timer.Result:It was not just the prompt apprehension of the young intruders that has convinced the school and community leaders of the advantages of the Bosch video technology. All of the subsystems in the security solution have been keeping the school running smoothly and securely. Andreas Niederreiter from the Hallbergmoos community is full of praise for the Bosch technology: "So far we are extremely satisfied and will definitely bear this system in mind for future construction projects."
