Bosch Security Systems has just released Bosch Video Management System (Bosch VMS) 6.0, a new and more open version of its digital video management software.
Bosch VMS was originally designed as the optimal software for managing the full range of Bosch video hardware features. Version 6.0 offers seamless, end-to-end integration with selected third party cameras and video data storage systems, as well as other hardware and software solutions (for example, third party video walls and analytics).
A complete list of supported third party camera models is available on the Bosch Security Systems website (http://ipp.boschsecurity.com).
Version 6.0 of the Bosch VMS offers “seamless, end-to-end integration” with selected third party cameras and video data storage systems
Bosch VMS 6.0 customers can download camera updates free of charge in order to integrate newly approved third party cameras. End users planning a security project can also take advantage of an additional service option to integrate third party cameras which have not yet been approved.
Bosch VMS 6.0 scans for third party cameras, automatically configuring motion and other key events. It also enables security installers to configure the most important settings for third party cameras from a single user interface without the hassle of having to access the websites of other camera manufacturers.
Version 6.0 can be integrated with other third party products to create a secure, end-to-end system.
To facilitate integration, examples of successful integrations and detailed application notes for third party hardware and software are provided on the Bosch Security Systems website.
Chubb Fire & Security has created a dedicated Learning and Development Academy to enhance the sales, technical and customer services skills of both new and existing employees.
The Chubb Sales Academy features a series of 18 bespoke learning modules delivered over a five-week period and offered five times a year. Each sales employee – whether new to Chubb or transferred from a sister business – will complete the rigorous learning and development programme. Instruction ensures understanding of the business and its history, as well as a more in-depth analysis of specific product technologies and customer needs.

“Throughout the Chubb Sales Academy we will encourage, develop and monitor each candidate to ensure they’re reaching the high standards that we expect of our teams,” said Chris Parker, head of commercial transformation at Chubb.
As well as the initial programme, sales managers have access to a calendar of additional modules to ensure their teams are fully aware of the brand’s latest innovations, or to refresh their existing knowledge.
“The academy is another example of Chubb’s commitment to nurturing and developing new talent,” added Parker. “We must ensure our employees have access to the latest techniques such that, as a business, we match the high standards our customers expect.”
