Bosch Security Solution 6000
We all want to live and work in a safe and secure environment. If an incident did occur, it’s not just
about the items stolen, it’s the loss of comfort and security that was once provided. Whether you
are looking to secure a home, a shop, or a commercial property, every premises will be different,
and you need to know that your system has the flexibility to adapt to your requirements.
Compatible Smart Card readers incorporate entry/exit and lock control built-in, which reduces cost
and simplifies installation. Bosch provides a choice of access control user interfaces including
internal or weatherproof external Smart Card readers, keypads with built-in Smart Card readers, or
for a higher security option, biometric fingerprint readers.
The contactless Smart Card technology is designed to provide a higher level of security and
incorporate microprocessors capable of handling encryption functions on the card itself. While
conventional RFID cards share their card data with any reading device (which increases the risk the
card can be copied or replayed), Smart Cards will first communicate with a reading device to
determine whether both card and reader are from the same system. If the system is not known to
the card, it will not send any data thus making the cards virtually uncopiable.
The access control features include holidays, date, time and day of the week schedules which allow
you to easily manage access and the arm/disarm functions of the security system. Up to 16 time
zones can be set up, with each containing up to 4 time periods. Time zones can be used to
automatically arm/disarm your security system at specific times, like automatically locking a
reception door at 5pm, as well as restricting user access to doors such as the warehouse after 4pm,
or to automatically control outputs, like gates that close automatically at 6pm.
The new WiFi enabled keypads for the Solution 6000 provide additional options for panel
communications. The new keypads sit on the wired RS485 panel LAN as with other keypads, but also
act as a WiFi connection device and antenna for the panel, allowing it to join existing wireless
networks in your home or business.
Just like with the wired network module for the Solution 6000, a WiFi enabled keypad allows the
panel to use such features as IP reporting and upload/ download via IP to control the panel. The
flexibility of a keypad is that it can easily be installed close to wireless routers or access points,
allowing the panel itself to be securely stored in a location that may not otherwise provide a strong
wireless signal. Even when using the WiFi enabled keypads, the panel itself can still be fitted with a
standard communications module such as the CM743B GSM Module – giving the panel an additional
communications path and enhancing the overall security of the system.
The Solution 6000 can be programmed to manage 144 zones that can be divided into 8 separately
controlled areas. The 144 fully programmable intrusion zones can support any conventional wired
security device such as sensors fitted to doors and windows, motion sensors and smoke detectors.
When events are detected, the Solution 6000 sounds sirens, transmit events to your monitoring
service provider and activate lights, providing security 24 hours a day and it can store up to 2,000
events (ie. arm/disarm functions and door access reports for each user) which can be viewed from
the keypad by a master user.
24-hour chime mode allows you to audibly monitor a zone or group of zones, such as business entry
doors for customer entry during business hours or entry into storage areas while your system is
disarmed. The chime mode feature is extremely useful for monitoring driveways and fire doors too.
The Solution 6000 panel also connects to MyAlarm, essentially you’ll be able to make use of the iFob
Control app available on both IOS and AndroidOS. With this app you’ll be able to check on the status
of any Solution 6000 panel connected to your account, arm or disarm the system, operate doors and
outputs, and even view the panel event log. What’s more, you can assign up to ten mobile devices to
each panel allowing other users access to similar functions with permissions and restrictions that
you can set easily through the MyAlarm web interface. You’ll never miss an alarm event with push,
voice, SMS or email notification available on some MyAlarm plans. You could also use the same
feature to be informed when other users have armed or disarmed the system, allowing you to
ensure that your children or your staff have properly secured the site when leaving. MyAlarm also
includes simple disaster recovery, meaning that you can rest assured that critical messages from
your alarm system are reaching your monitoring service.
An extremely intuitive and future focussed product the Solution 6000 is well worth a closer look!
