First Impressions: Bosch IP 5000 Bullet

Bosch IP 5000 Bullet
Bosch IP 5000 Bullet

I WASN’T sure what to think of the Bosch IP 5000 when I unpacked it – the sunshade and the overall camera are quite light but when it’s up and running you find that this a surprisingly good camera in the best tradition of motorised, remote auto focus bullets. I've really enjoyed working with the Bosch 5000 Bullet. 

The F1.4 varifocal 2.7-12mm lens has the fastest zoom and refocus I’ve met – really, it’s barnstormingly fast. Pull the slider and refocus is right behind you – half a second behind – that’s exceptionally useful for real time operations. Notwithstanding some variable overexposure on the sunny side of the street with WDR on auto in 70,000 lux, the 5000 Bullet offers a strong and composite image at all times.

HIKVISION has announced new thermal cameras which deliver high resolution 640 x 512-pixel thermal video streams in real time and are not impeded by bad weather or darkness. 

Developed in-house, Hikvision’s thermal cameras feature 3 innovative functionalities in image quality enhancement: auto gain control, digital detail enhancement, and 3D digital noise reduction. The AGC adjusts the dynamic range of the image to make the picture retain helpful permeability; DDE based on an algorithm for a region of interest renders more detail in the on-screen image; while 3D DNR minimizes the influence of hot pixels, making images sharper. 

Equipped with onboard video analytics, Hikvision thermal cameras boast a full quiver of Hikvision Smart features, including line crossing detection and intrusion detection for perimeter protection. The Smart Tracking function is also available in Speed Dome model cameras.

Gallagher Releases New Class 5 End of Line Module

Gallagher has released the Gallagher Class 5 End of Line Module (ELM), which encrypts a security system’s signals.

High value and sensitive assets are normally protected by intruder alarm systems, using 3-4 state analogue monitoring to detect sensor tampering. Without a Class 5 ELM, sites are susceptible to sophisticated attacks, rendering high value assets unprotected.

Gallagher chief technology officer, Steve Bell, said the Class 5 ELM uses the latest digital encryption security standards to protect against all known vulnerabilities, ensuring alarms are always reported should sensors come under attack.

“Most security systems have a weak link with non-authenticated sensor inputs communicating unencrypted with controllers,” said Bell. “The Gallagher Class 5 ELM secures this weakness by extending full end-to-end authentication and encryption from highly secure Gallagher devices to any PIR or sensor in a system”
