Proximex, Bosch Expand Partnership for Enhanced Integration of VMS, Alarm Monitoring Systems
Alliance spans multiple technology areas to achieve tighter integrations, improved situational awareness
WESTFORD, MA, March 27, 2014 –– Proximex, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco (NYSE: TYC), announces the continued expansion of its partnership with Bosch Security Systems, Inc. through the integration of its Surveillint™ Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) solution with video management and intrusion detection and control systems from Bosch. These enhancements, which represent integrations with the Bosch Video Management System (BVMS), the company’s latest intrusion control panels -- G Series (GV4) and B Series – and improved support for Conettix D6600 Communications Receivers, continue to add value for joint customers who require the accurate display and correlation of critical information to manage a security incident more efficiently from their PSIM system.
“This partnership with Bosch underscores our desire to continue to collaborate with our partners and innovate in all areas of security, helping Surveillint users to do their jobs more quickly and realize the full value of their security investments,” said Chatura Liyanage, Group Product Manager, Proximex. “The new integration with the Bosch video management platform and the continued improvements to the alarm monitoring integrations are significant extensions of that collaboration and innovation.”
BVMS 4.5 is an enterprise-class client/server based video management system offering superior alarm handling, and a mobile client for viewing live and playback video. Using Surveillint, which connects and correlates information from disparate systems into one centralized environment, users can manage Bosch video alerts with workflow automation for improved and faster incident response and create event reports for more proactive management of security operations.
Additional integrations between Surveillint and Bosch G Series and B Series panels and the Conettix D6600 Receiver enable end users to receive information from the panels into Surveillint as well as collect, analyze and display detailed alarm information through Surveillint.
“Joining our detailed video streams and reliable alarm communications with data from other systems through Surveillint provides a complete picture of security activity in a single view,” says Brad Eck, Integration Manager, North America, Bosch Security Systems. “The partnership with Proximex provides our mutual customers with a higher level of situational awareness to improve how security events are handled and to mitigate risk.”
These latest integrations will be demonstrated at the Bosch Security Systems Booth 14051 at ISC West, April 2-4 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, Nev.
