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).
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.
