Bosch Launches Low-Cost IP Communications Receiver For Monitoring Applications

New Products
Past Issues


FAIRPORT, N.Y. – Bosch Security Systems, Inc., a full-line manufacturer of high-quality security solutions, announced today the expansion of its Information Transport Solutions portfolio with the Conettix D6100i Communications Receiver/Gateway. The new receiver offers a low-cost point of entry into IP communications for monitoring for small central stations, university campuses or gated communities.

Providing higher security than receivers that only support phone line communications, the Conettix D6100i acknowledges supervision messages from control panels, which helps ensure uninterrupted functionality. The monitoring signals can be sent at a programmed rate ranging from five seconds to 21 minutes to accommodate the differing security needs of various applications. If authentication and encryption algorithms detect potentially damaging activity, such as substitution or replaying of messages, the central station operator is alerted.

By using existing Internet or intranet structures to receive communications, the Conettix D6100i enables higher speed transmissions and helps customers to reduce their system operating costs by eliminating phone lines dedicated for primary communications between control panels and the monitoring station. In addition to integrated IP support, the D6100i offers phone line connections for receiving simultaneous local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN) and telephone communications – allowing use of the PSTN for back-up in the event of a network or Internet failure.

The Conettix D6100i can support up to 3200 accounts for LAN or WAN communications, as well as two phone lines, which enable the receiver to accept reports from more accounts than a single-line receiver and results in fewer busy signals -- allowing more data to get through to the central station automation system. Additional features include two programmable inputs and outputs for easy connection to automation systems, programming software and printers, as well as a unique protocol for flexible transmissions through firewalls, and two-way audio support for alarm verification.

Reliable Controls The new receiver uses menu-driven keypad programming for simple set-up without special tools, and the large liquid crystal display is easy to read. Its compact design makes the D6100i ideal for installation in crowded service centers or guard shacks, where available space is limited.
