|Bosch is showcasing its B-Series intrusion control panels that provides security monitoring of homes & small businesses|
The world is becoming ever more connected. And at times it seems as though the internet and globalisation have developed a momentum of their own. Companies like Bosch can help shape these developments, however. At the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2015, Bosch will be showcasing intelligent solutions designed to enable consumers to lead convenient, efficient, and secure lives. These sustainable solutions for a connected world range from smart sensors to smart energy solutions, from eMobility to automated driving, from smart software to smart cities, from telematics to thermotechnology, from home appliances to power tools.
Energy conversion is a core Bosch area of expertise. Bosch offers owners of residential and commercial buildings packages that combine technology and services. Bosch solutions intelligently link and control the generation and consumption of power and heat. This will make the power supply even smarter and more efficient, as well as more decentralised. Bosch’s expertise spans multiple areas here. Its technical systems know-how is the basis of heating and security control systems. The company also offers software and sensor technology as well as services for energy management, remote monitoring, and the handling of business processes. This allows customers to use energy and resources more efficiently, and to reduce costs. The internet of things makes it possible for devices and systems in buildings to communicate with one another.
By 2015, Bosch expects about 75 percent of the world's population to have access to the internet. At the same time, six billion things will be connected to the internet. This development will also bring about major changes in the market for energy and building technology in the coming years, and will pave the way for new services and business models. Bosch already has considerable experience in this realm, for instance with the 50,000 networked heating systems it has already sold. Bosch Security Systems already generates more than half its sales in the video surveillance segment with internet-enabled cameras.
Smart security systems for enhanced security at home
Another innovation being presented is a way to access surveillance video remotely. Limited bandwidth makes it impossible to stream HD video on mobile devices whereas dynamic transcoding technology delivers both smooth live video streaming and instant access to HD (1080p) images when needed, regardless of available bandwidth. Combined with the Video Security app, users are allowed access to camera controls, live video streams, and HD images via a mobile device anytime and from anywhere. It also enables users to instantly retrieve the correct video data from hours of recorded material.
Bosch is also showcasing burglar alarm systems. The B-Series intrusion control panels provide convenient security monitoring of homes and small businesses. These flexible panels offer customised security and remote operation from smart phones and tablets. B-Series panels can be programmed to control individual rooms or up to four distinct areas of a home or business property. This enables arming or disarming certain areas – such as a guest suite, sunroom, kitchen, or detached garage – without affecting other rooms. The panels check for open windows and doors, monitor smoke detectors, activate panic devices and perform other services to keep homes and businesses secure. The Remote Security Control app allows system operation from iOS or Android devices. Arm or disarm the system, check status and control monitored devices over the panel’s cellular connection, the internet, or through a local wireless network using a hand-held device. Event notifications – such as alarms or other warnings – can also be sent directly to mobile phones to keep owners informed about the status of their homes or businesses while they are away.
The company also offers software and sensor technology as well as services for energy management, remote monitoring, and the handling of business processes
In addition, Bosch is presenting the Z-Wave Home Control Gateway. This solution allows Bosch B-Series control panels to be connected with Z-Wave devices including lighting controls, door locks, temperature sensors, IP cameras, and more, in order to provide customers with home automation and remote monitoring capabilities. Programming possibilities include automatically arming the security system when an exterior door is locked or disarming the system when the door is unlocked. When a user leaves home, tapping an “away” button on a smartphone can also trigger the doors to lock, the security system to arm, interior lights to turn off and the thermostat to adjust to conserve energy and reduce costs. These are just a few of the options available for effortless home control, as the intuitive wizard makes it easy for integrators to program trigger- or schedule-based automation tailored for each customer. A web interface allows the user access to a system dashboard and home control via an iOS or Android smartphone or other web-enabled device.
