Advanced physical security systems and services provider LenelS2 recently announced a strategic agreement with Bosch Building Technologies, a global supplier of security, safety, and communications products and systems, to resell Bosch IP cameras in North America and Europe. As a result of the agreement, end users will have access to the complete Bosch IP camera portfolio through LenelS2’s Value-Added Resellers (VARs).
The Bosch IP camera portfolio integrates with all LenelS2™ video management solutions to enhance critical video analytics capabilities that help protect people and assets and optimise building health and efficiency.
The relationship provides a convenient, single source for LenelS2 VARs to procure and build their video surveillance solutions. VARs will be able to leverage a unified support infrastructure for products across both company product lines. LenelS2 and Bosch are developing tighter integrations between products to enable advanced features for future product releases. Bosch cameras integrate with all LenelS2™ OnGuard® and NetBoxÔ ecosystem video management solutions including LenelS2 NVR (LNVR), UltraView, VRxÔ, and NetVRÔ. Bosch cameras also integrate with Milestone XProtect® in support of LenelS2 and Milestone’s distribution agreement.
Jeff Stanek, president, LenelS2 said this partnership was a natural step to take as Bosch Building Technologies is a longtime partner and member of the LenelS2 OpenAccess Alliance Program (OAAP) since 2010. “This alliance further supports our commitment to providing open platforms and comprehensive Healthy Buildings solutions, enabling our customers to select the best solutions for their security needs,” he added.
The Bosch camera portfolio includes a wide array of products from small form factors ideal for offices to cameras designed for industrial applications such as utility and transportation infrastructure. The cameras also incorporate advanced video analytics, bandwidth management features, industry-leading hardware and software cybersecurity. Featuring a full library of essential and intelligent analytics capabilities, Bosch cameras can proactively detect a variety of objects and events, which helps to create healthier, safer workspaces, according to the company.
“By providing direct access to our portfolio of IP cameras, this collaboration makes it easier for LenelS2 VARs to meet the needs and requirements of end users with intelligent Bosch devices,” said Tanja Rückert, president, Bosch Building Technologies. “This agreement will enable innovative solutions made possible with features like built-in video analytics, tighter product integrations and greater choice for customers.”
