Bosch Security and Safety Systems: Anticipate the Future of Video Security
Adopting an open platform principle is essential for keeping up with the evolution of the Internet of Things.
As the world becomes increasingly connected, the Internet of Things (IoT) presents individuals and businesses with new opportunities. To take full advantage, the security industry needs to think differently about how it develops solutions.
Adopting an open platform principle is essential for this transformation. In the realm of IP cameras, Security & Safety Things is advancing the open platform concept through development of an open operating system (OS).
IP cameras built on the open OS allow systems integrators to add apps to the cameras that make it simple to customize security solutions for their customers.
A single operating system enables application developers to create these apps based on a common language. For example, developers can focus on leveraging the valuable data gathered by video analytics built into a camera to introduce new solution possibilities.
Everything the camera sees can be understood and transformed into valuable insights, such as object classification, speed, specific characteristics, GPS coordinates, and much more. This can inspire software solutions that define what a security device will be and how it will work for the end user.
Through apps, a video security camera can be used as an access controller that operates based on video data. It can become a fire detector that can detect fires early based on video data. It can be optimized to act as a sensor to provide smart data for multiple types of applications, and much more.
This year, Bosch is launching a series of IP cameras based on its new INTEOX platform. The cameras combine onboard Intelligent Video Analytics from Bosch with the open OS provided by Security & Safety Things.
This is an important step toward the future of our industry — one where customers can imagine, create, and deploy solutions with endless possibilities beyond safety and security.
