|Bosch is presenting intelligently connected solutions for commercial buildings and homes|
At Light + Building 2016, the world’s leading trade fair for lighting and building services technology in Frankfurt am Main, Bosch is presenting intelligently connected solutions for commercial buildings and homes. Bosch energy and building technology enhances comfort, safety and security, saves energy, and reduces operating costs. To this end, the supplier of technology and services is focusing on connectivity via the internet of things.
Integrated building management and security systems ensure smooth processes
Intelligently connected Bosch building security systems discreetly ensure smooth processes – and minimise operating and personnel costs. Bosch is presenting its building management system known as BIS (building integration system), which combines all the security systems of a building on one platform: video surveillance, fire-alarm and evacuation systems, intrusion-alarm technology, and access control. Building technology used to open and close barriers, gates, and doors, for example, can also be controlled with BIS. In addition, Bosch is introducing the option of connecting the MAP 5000 (modular alarm platform) intrusion alarm system with the MATRIX access control system. The system ensures greater security and efficiency when it comes to security management. Bosch is also showcasing its new combined public address and voice evacuation system known as PAVIRO. PAVIRO facilitates the swift evacuation of a building, thereby reducing the risk of mass panic breaking out. The company’s EffiLink remote service system ensures fast, cost-effective maintenance, remote diagnostics and parameterisation, software updates, troubleshooting, and support from service technicians.
Intelligent energy monitoring cuts costs and reduces CO2 emissions
Intelligently connected Bosch heating, cooling, and ventilation systems provide an ideal indoor climate simply and automatically – enabling up to 30-percent reductions in energy use, costs, and CO2 emissions. With its Energy Platform, Bosch is presenting a monitoring and analysis tool for increasing energy efficiency in commercial buildings. Companies and owners are provided with a comprehensive overview of energy consumers and costs in real time. Intelligent algorithms spot deviations from the target state, send alerts in case of malfunctions or if tolerances are exceeded, provide specific suggestions for solutions, and automatically implement those solutions in part. This creates the basis for further approaches to optimisation and an efficient supply of energy in the long term.
Intuitive smart-home solutions make life more convenient and secure
Bosch’s solutions for smart homes make life more convenient and secure, and relieve users of tedious household chores. The Bosch Smart Home System connects devices in the home with the internet as well as with each other – via a single system platform. Users are able to intuitively set up and operate the system, which is modular and expandable. It is also easy to connect compatible devices built by other manufacturers to it. All devices connected with the Bosch Smart Home System can be controlled and monitored from anywhere with an app for smartphones and tablets. Bosch is showcasing its current product portfolio, which includes the Bosch smart home controller, intelligent radiator thermostats, door-window contacts, a smart plug, and lighting solutions from partner Philips Hue. The smart home controller is the central control unit of the Bosch system. It connects the components with the internet and each other. With the help of the window contacts, for example, the system automatically turns down the heating if a window is opened, saving the user time and money.
