Genetec announces new integration with Bosch MAP 5000 Intrusion Panel Series
09 July 2020
GENETEC HAS announced the latest deep integration to result from its enduring partnership with Bosch Security Systems. End users of the widely deployed Bosch MAP 5000 intruder alarm panels can now directly connect to Genetec Security Centre through the Intrusion Manager, in turn combining intrusion, video and access control into one intuitive interface.
Security managers have traditionally been required to manage intrusion settings and alarms manually through a keypad or via a separate system. This results in inefficient task switching to understand the context of an alarm, longer response times and a disconnected overview of security and operations.
However, integration with Genetec Security Center ensures operators can monitor all intrusion events on dynamic maps alongside other security data such as video footage or access control records. This provides a fuller real-time understanding of what’s happening in the facility such that host organisations can react faster and contribute to more efficient day-to-day operations.
The integration also provides customers with additional intrusion management capabilities. This includes the ability to operate all intrusion systems from a central location, an alarm persistence feature that identifies where alarms originated and a specialist interface to ensure operations can quickly arm specific zones while continuing to monitor the rest of the system.
Furthermore, it offers the potential for customers to take advantage of other integrations and modules available within Security Center. For example, with Genetec Mission Control, users can go beyond monitoring and implement a comprehensive decision support system that ensures each intrusion event is handled in compliance with the organisation’s standard operating procedures.
“This integration further deepens our long-standing and mutually beneficial relationship with Bosch, bringing true value to our joint customers and partners,” commented Francesco Serra, vice-president of sales for Europe at Genetec. “While our existing intrusion management features have long helped customers to manage their systems more easily and to catch intruders on a faster basis, this new integration allows us to extend those benefits to new areas across Europe.”
The Genetec plug-in for the Bosch MAP 5000 Series intrusion alarm panels is available for installation now through approved integrators. For more information visit https://resources.genetec.com/en-feature-notes/intrusion-panel-integration
