Bosch Building Integration System (BIS) Software version 4.2 now offers integration with the Bosch digital Public Address and Emergency Sound / Mass Notification System Praesideo, as well as enhanced cyber protection.
The system software solution Bosch BIS 4.2 for fire, intrusion, access control and video management, now integrates easily with Bosch Praesideo, the scalable Public Address and Emergency Sound / Mass Notification System, used in over 15,000 facilities worldwide.
Through the Bosch BIS all-in-one-screen interface, security operators at stadiums, industrial plants, airports, and more can play separate messages or background music simultaneously for selected audio zones. Pre-record messages also play automatically, activated by alarms or events. In emergencies, operators can monitor live video feedback, at the same time using a microphone and speakers to help guide people safely out of the building. A single screen increases operator efficiency, and allows for a faster emergency response.
Connecting multiple Bosch Praesideo subsystems or third-party public address systems across larger facilities is also easier and more cost efficient with the OMNEO IP interface (based on two key technologies – the media transmission component Dante and the system-control component Open Control Architecture or OCA).
Security managers profit from the Bosch Public Address systems with high-quality sound, minimum delay, and remote control of devices across multiple channels, all managed from a single, Bosch BIS 4.2 user interface.
Especially well-suited for mission or business critical applications such as government facilities, data management companies, and critical infrastructure, BIS 4.2 also pushes ahead of security standards to improve cyber protection in access control and alarm management systems.
New OSDP (Open Supervised Device Protocol) v2 Secure Channel controller-reader encryption is combined with established client-server and card-reader encryption to create continuous data security throughout each step of the access control process. Improved user account controls prevent unauthorized access, improving protection not only against external hackers, but also against exploitation by internal offenders.
