Bosch Video surveillance
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 mounting
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."

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 v184.108.40.206 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.
