Bosch launches a fully open camera platform

Residential Estate Security Handbook 2020 Products, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

As the world becomes increasingly connected, the Internet of Things (IoT) presents new opportunities for individuals and businesses. However, to take full advantage of the opportunities that the IoT brings, the safety and security industry must embrace change. Bosch is demonstrating the vast potential of the IoT with INTEOX. The INTEOX open camera platform combines built-in Intelligent Video Analytics from Bosch with good performance, a commonly used open operating system and the ability to add software apps securely.

The new platform supports the latest technologies, for example, neural network-based analytics, the next step in machine learning and artificial intelligence. INTEOX enables app developers and integration partners to take advantage of its built-in intelligence and capabilities to easily develop unlimited software apps based on a common language. At the same time, system integrators can customise their security solutions to meet specific and changing customer requirements by adding apps and deploy them into INTEOX cameras.

“As sophisticated sensors with Intelligent Video Analytics built-in as standard, INTEOX cameras can provide valuable data that can be analysed and used in a wide variety of new and beneficial ways, many of which the industry can only imagine. Bosch supports the platform with the highest levels of data security and privacy protection and the quality and simplicity that comes with working with Bosch,” says Michael Seiter, senior vice president responsible for the Bosch Video Systems & Solutions business.

The INTEOX camera platform will power an entirely new line of MIC, AUTODOME, FLEXIDOME and DINION fixed and moving cameras supported by an open IoT infrastructure. Developed by Security and Safety Things GmbH, a Bosch start-up company, this IoT infrastructure is based on four pillars:

• An open OS based on the Android Open Source Project and strengthened for increased security.

• An application store to access relevant app information, browse the public store and purchase ready-to-use apps for all INTEOX cameras.

• A web portal for app developers and designers that offers information and tools to develop and test apps.

• A device management portal that shows app and device health statistics and enables easy management of apps.

The INTEOX cameras, together with the IoT infrastructure, enable app developers, system integrators, integration partners and other market players to create customer-specific apps and insert them easily into INTEOX cameras.
