press release

Munich – Bosch Security Systems introduces AVIOTEC, a new solution for reliable and early fire detection in challenging environments. Building upon proven Bosch camera technology and Bosch's Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA), video-based fire detection can supplement state-of-the-art fire detection technologies and enables early detection of smoke and flames in environments where these cannot offer satisfactory reaction times such as buildings with high ceilings or dusty and humid areas. AVIOTEC can also secure environments where no other solutions exist, for example saw mills or paper factories, hangars or extremely large monitoring areas.

Detect fire at the source
Using intelligent algorithms in surveillance cameras, 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 state-of-the-art smoke detectors. By detecting fires at the source rather than the ceiling, cameras can issue an alarm within seconds while for point detectors it 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. AVIOTEC offers proven detection reliability in all test fires (TF1 through TF8) as specified in EN54.

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 management system. Using Bosch's Dynamic Transcoding technology it can relay alarms to an existing fire alarm panel or transmit them via Ethernet to a monitoring center or even a mobile device like an iPad. Receiving HD quality video images in real time gives the firefighters 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 state-of-the-art smoke and flame detectors. The use of PoE cameras (Power over Ethernet) 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.
