Milestone integrates Bosch AVIOTEC

March 2016 Fire & Safety, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Milestone Systems has a long partnership with Bosch Security Systems in both the Camera Partner Program (CaPP) and as a Milestone Solution Partner (MSP). Milestone VMS supports dedicated interoperability with the full line of Bosch cameras, including integration with their video analytics, access control and now the AVIOTEC fire detection solution.

The Bosch AVIOTEC camera will be #5000 for Milestone’s tally of wide support for third-party devices operating with XProtect VMS. It was included in the Milestone Device Pack 8.4 release.

Bosch AVIOTEC is a new solution for early video fire detection in challenging environments. Building on Bosch’s Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA), video-based fire detection can complement fire detection technologies and enables early detection of smoke and flames with low false alarm rates in environments where conventional detectors cannot offer satisfactory reaction times.

Main applications are buildings with high ceilings or dusty and humid areas. AVIOTEC can also secure environments where no other reliable fire detection solutions exist, for example saw mills or paper factories, hangars or extremely large monitoring areas.

Detect fire at the source

Using intelligent algorithms in video surveillance, AVIOTEC can identify smoke and flames as soon as they come into the range of the camera instead of having to wait for smoke to migrate to smoke detectors often installed at the ceiling of a building. By detecting fires at the source rather than the ceiling, cameras can issue an alarm within seconds compared to point detectors that can take minutes to detect an alarm condition.

AVIOTEC is based on intelligent algorithms to distinguish between real fires and disturbance values like reflections, movements or backlights. This guarantees a very reliable detection with almost no false alarms. The video-based fire detection system AVIOTEC scales well from a single camera to a networked system of distributed cameras with a central console and video management system such as Milestone XProtect. Using Bosch’s Dynamic Transcoding technology, AVIOTEC can relay alarms to an existing fire alarm panel or transmit them via Ethernet to a monitoring centre or even a mobile device like an iPad due to the low bandwidth requirements. Receiving HD quality video images in real time gives the fire fighters a good understanding of the current situation even before they arrive on the scene.

Combining safety and security

Cameras are easy to install and require very little maintenance in contrast to smoke and flame detectors. The use of Power over Ethernet (PoE) cameras) can eliminate the need for individual power supplies and power cables, making AVIOTEC even more cost efficient. AVIOTEC can also be used for very small and distributed facilities such as power stations and signal boxes where the benefit does not justify the installation of fire panels.
