Bosch Security Systems - previously Philips CSI - has entered the South African market with fire and intrusion products.
Allan Antoncich, general manager of Bosch Security Systems, says, "The acquisition of Philips CSI worldwide has resulted in a company that offers a product range unequalled in the security industry and the move has elevated the combined enterprise to one of the 'top five' security solution providers in the world."
Philips CSI was involved in security from a CCTV perspective and in communications with public address products and congress/conference systems. In Germany, Bosch's main focus has been on fire, intrusion, video and peripheral security products. The recent acquisition meant Bosch had immediate access to an international sales division and a new avenue for its products, and South Africa acquired a complete new range of products.
"I recently returned from an international product introduction at Bosch's head office in Munich, Germany, and I see plenty of opportunities to utilise our new products," explains Antoncich. "The intrusion and fire products offer wired and wireless systems, small or large systems, and are suitable for residential DIY enthusiasts or larger sophisticated industry operations that use the European standard LSN (registered trademark of Robert Bosch Gmbh, Stuttgart). With our new product range, we will be looking for new business partners and installers to expand our operations."
Antoncich also stated that it would be a while before the full range is available and in stock. However, projects with reasonable lead times can be pursued. Bosch Security Systems also has access and time management products that will be introduced at a later date. The building management systems are able to provide controls across all systems in one integrated solution.
