Bosch Security Systems has received Lenel factory certification for the integration of more of the company’s IP cameras with the OnGuard® access control system v6.5 and v6.6, as well as with the Lenel Network Video Recorder 7.0 (Lenel NVR). This expanded certification enables mutual customers to view live and recorded video from more models of Bosch IP cameras using Lenel NVR systems and to control and configure the cameras from within the OnGuard access control platform.
“Bosch has completed required factory testing at Lenel to validate the interface of the company’s latest IP cameras to OnGuard and the Lenel NVR,” said Gidon Lissai, Director of Strategic Alliances, Lenel. “This certification enables customers to seamlessly integrate the detailed video streams from Bosch devices with our systems, improving the level of overall facility control. We look forward to their continued involvement in the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program.”
Customers can choose from a variety of Bosch fixed and pan-tilt-zoom IP cameras tested for certification. Fixed camera models include the popular 720p or 1080p high definition (HD) DINION and FLEXIDOME cameras, the DINION IP Infrared Imager, as well as the IP 200 family cameras.
Moving cameras include AUTODOME pan-tilt-zoom IP cameras, the MIC Series 550 with IP Power Supply, and more.
“There’s now a broader range of Bosch cameras that integrate with the offerings from Lenel—from cameras designed for well-lit indoor areas to those that deliver excellent imaging in a range of lighting and environmental conditions, outdoors or in,” said Brad Eck, Integration Manager, North America, Bosch Security Systems. “This makes it easier for integrators to install cameras that deliver the best image quality for each application, and end users benefit from better visual information about the circumstances surrounding events or alarms in the OnGuard system.”
The integration of Bosch IP cameras with OnGuard and the Lenel NVR enables customers to verify system events and alarms by viewing video from Bosch devices directly in the OnGuard user interface. With the ability to see the source of an alarm using nearby Bosch cameras, security personnel gain the information they need to respond more accurately.
The integration also allows customers to operate pan, tilt and zoom functions of Bosch cameras and to receive motion, temperature sensor, and other video alarms in the OnGuard system.
