Bosch BVMS 10.1 Informs Security Decision Makers
Bosch’s BVMS 10.1 is a modular and resilient security system that aggregates and delivers consolidated data to security operators in a way that helps them make informed decisions – so they can trigger the right actions and deploy a swift response to improve security and safety.
When combined with the Access Management System 3.0, BVMS enables security operators to scrutinize any person attempting to gain entry using manual video verification. Not only can the operator instantly verify if the person matches the registered cardholder in the database, they can also search for cardholder activities, and other activities at the door. This makes it possible to check who has entered a certain area, and at what time, which is especially helpful for forensic investigations.
Seamless integration eliminates the need to switch between different systems. Access commands and events of the Access Management System 3.0 can be handled directly within BVMS, increasing the efficiency of both domains. The integration also increases the overall level of security because an event in one domain can always trigger a reaction in another. So, when a door is forced open, for example, a camera can instantly start recording what happens at that door. Or if the video analytics in an intelligent camera detects that a certain spot has become overcrowded, a door can be automatically unlocked to provide another exit.
When integrated with the B and G Series intrusion control panels, all relevant intrusion events and alarms appear in the alarm list of BVMS, prioritized with relevant information. Additionally, critical alarms can provide automatic video verification of multiple cameras for immediate overview on the scene.
Combined with cameras with built-in video analytics from Bosch, BVMS’ enhanced Forensic Search capability makes it possible to retrieve the right footage from hours of stored video instantly and analyze the scene by providing different statistics so an operator can act faster and more efficiently to potential threats. Enhanced Forensic Search allows that search pre-sets can be saved, along with their respective criteria. This speeds up the whole search process, making it more efficient by enabling operators to adjust and enhance previous searches, or simply repeat a search that has already been executed.
BVMS also offers smarter interaction between the Forensic Search dialog, the timeline and the playback image pane – all within the same intuitive dashboard. This eliminates the need for operators to switch between different windows because incidents, objects, and object filters such as color or speed are already defined in the search dialog. Search results are displayed in clickable boxes on the timeline, which trigger recorded video sequences in the playback image pane. In addition, BVMS also generates a table view of search results that operators can click through without having to scroll through the timeline. Both time-saving features that make searching for specific incidents fast and far more efficient.
Once BVMS is combined with Bosch cameras that feature built-in video analytics it can be extended with ‘Intelligent Insights’. Intelligent Insights allows operators to quickly see the number of counted objects such as people or cars within a time period, the movement of objects, the formation of a crowd or the fill-level of an area. All visualized in real time, so they can evaluate the data generated by multiple cameras and get a genuine understanding of the situation and context. In short, Intelligent Insights completes the metadata journey from scene to screen and presents it in a way that is simple to read, easy to interpret, and fast to act on.
