Bosch offers a wide range of video security cameras, recording solutions and software to deliver intelligent solutions that deliver smart data that helps to improve safety, increase efficiency and reduce costs.

Intelligent cameras that deliver smart data to improve safety, increase efficiency and reduce costs

We believe the future of security should be designed around you. Our aim is to deliver leading solutions that you can trust, that add value and that are quick and easy to use and install.
That’s why all our cameras from the IP 3000i series onwards have built-in Video Analytics as standard

IP 3000i cameras

IP 3000i security solutions offer all the core advantages you would expect from Bosch. They’re built for high-quality, 24/7 performance with a range of reliable surveillance features, and they’re designed for easy installation.

IP 4000i, 5000i and 6000 cameras

Professional video surveillance for everyone that goes beyond security with built-in Essential Video Analytics as standard in the IP 4000i, 5000i, 6000 cameras.

AUTODOME IP cameras

Like other Bosch network cameras, the AUTODOME IP moving cameras offer improved levels of security by delivering control, precision and detail whenever needed. Complemented with video analytics as standard designed to take data usage to a whole new level.

MIC IP cameras

The true potential of MIC IP cameras is the combination of their rugged design with built-in Intelligent Video Analytics that is specifically designed for the most demanding environments

DINION IP thermal 8000

The DINION IP thermal 8000 camera provides early detection by combining thermal imaging with Intelligent Video Analytics.

FLEXIDOME IP starlight 8000i

Bosch’s dedication to constantly push the boundaries of technology is typified by the launch of the FLEXIDOME IP starlight 8000i fixed dome cameras, developed to simplify the video security process.

Highest image quality

Rethinking video security means nothing if it can't deliver the right information in case of an emergency or provide the correct evidence after a criminal act. Bosch delivers the highest quality images with resolutions up to 4K ultra HD, starlight technology for low light situations and thermal solutions for complete darkness.

Intelligent bitrate management

The very best surveillance systems are built on excellence in video security and data management. Our data management solutions excel in both, helping you to reduce storage costs and network strain without compromising the video quality you rely on for effective security.

Data security

The security of your surveillance data is just as important as the people and premises you are safeguarding. Bosch achieves the highest standards with a 4-step approach that covers your entire network for end-to-end data security.

Excellence in data management is given

The very best intelligent solutions that go beyond the highest security demands of today and deliver clear business advantages beyond security are built on excellence in video security and data management. The amount of data is getting larger by the minute. Rapid advances in technology are driving the video surveillance industry into the arena of Big Data. Higher resolutions, higher frame rates, excellent dynamic ranges and better light sensitivity are key to capturing images that can distinguish individuals or objects for irrefutable evidence – whatever the time of day or night. This increased data needs to be managed efficiently, as well as the service, maintenance and management costs that are associated with it, without compromising image quality or making it less relevant.

Intelligent bitrate management

At Bosch, we use our expertise to deliver the most efficient bitrates with the lowest storage requirements and network strain – all without compromising the exceptional quality of our images.

  • Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction reduces image noise before encoding
  • Intelligent streaming adjusts encoder settings based on the level of movement to achieve the most efficient bitrate
  • Both intelligent techniques reduce noise at the source during image capture
  • The lower bitrate does not compromise video quality.

H.265 encoding

All Bosch cameras that feature Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction and Intelligent streaming combined with H.265 video encoding can reduce bitrates by up to 80% depending on the scene. With our intelligent bitrate management techniques, we can significantly reduce storage costs, and lessen network strain by only using bandwidth when needed.

Reliable and easy video data management

Your security operation needs to be up and running no matter what. That means large volumes of video data can be hard to process and difficult to manage. Video Recording Manager (VRM) makes managing large data volumes easy with maximum reliability while lowering costs. It enables the camera to stream relevant video data directly to the available storage devices without the use of network servers. This saves costs, server maintenance, and eliminates a possible single point of failure, thereby increasing reliability.

VRM also allows you to expand your surveillance system easily by adding extra cameras or storage devices to meet your growing needs. The available storage capacity is used most efficiently because VRM automatically balances the video stream load to the free storage volumes. Less redundant storage is needed and it is easier to respect retention times with a minimal risk of overwriting.

Video security and the Internet of Things

The security of your surveillance data is just as important as the people and premises you are safeguarding.

 

Video security data is increasingly connected across local and global networks. A growing number of edge components (cameras) send their data to core components (servers) over the Internet, where digital intruders and hackers loom.

Covering all major elements of the video security infrastructure

Because video data is often highly critical and sensitive, Bosch is driving a systematic approach to maximize data security by considering physical safety and cybersecurity simultaneously.

Bosch’s system approach is the key to achieving the highest standards in end-to-end data security:

  • We create trust by assigning every component in the network an authentication key.
  • We secure data from hackers by encrypting it at the hardware level, using a cryptographic key that is safely stored in an unique built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM).
  • We offer easy ways to manage user access rights ensuring that only authorized people have access to your data.
  • We can support the set-up of a Public Key Infrastructure.

How we secure our cameras

  • Secured connections supported (HTTPS)
  • Password enforcement at initial set up
  • Execution of 3rd party software is disabled
  • Firmware updates via Bosch signed firmware files only
  • Cryptographic operations, for authentication and encryption, are only executed inside the unique built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
  • Software sealing can detect changes in a configuration

How we secure storage devices

  • Cryptographic operations, for authentication and encryption, are only executed inside the unique built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
  • Support of Microsoft Active Directory for safe management of user access rights
  • Digest access authentication only
  • Regular updates via security patches

How we secure network communication

  • Unsecure ports, such as Universal Plug and Play, are disabled by default
  • Password enforcement at initial set up
  • Network authentication using the 802.1x protocol
  • Support of the Advance Encryption Standard (up to 256 bit keys for encryption).

How we support Public Key Infrastructures (PKI)

  • Factory-loaded unique Bosch signed certificates on all cameras
  • Unique built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for highly secure cryptographic operations
  • In-house Certificate Authority (Escrypt)
  • Support of customer specific certificates
  • Support of 3rd party PKI solutions
