As Executive Vice President with responsibility for Security and Safety Systems at Bosch Building Technologies, Bernhard Schuster, knows the power data has to elevate the experience they deliver to their customers. Schuster and his team make it a daily priority to invest in every opportunity that will help them protect more lives, more buildings, and more assets.
Bosch Security and Safety Systems’ extensive product portfolio includes a wide range of safety, security and communications solutions, such as video surveillance, intrusion and fire detection systems, that help empower their customers to build a safer, more secure world. But Bosch’s capabilities don’t stop there. The Bosch team develops specialized products and systems that incorporate smart sensors and built-in analytics that help their customers capture and capitalize on powerful data.
“Our video systems process image data in real time,” said Schuster. “Sharing the information with your security and other enterprise systems, such as warehouse or manufacturing, is key for improving security and reducing costs.”
The Internet of Things (IoT) creates immense opportunity for Bosch to use video surveillance footage. In today’s connected world, cameras capture much more than simply images. Cameras are smart sensor devices that have the power to deliver data via a robust digital infrastructure.
“Let’s take a giant warehouse as an example,” said Schuster. “Suspicious activities are detected in real time by the device’s algorithm that enables the security operators to act quickly and efficiently. But that’s not all—Intelligent Video Analytics can also track missing shipments, which increase efficiency significantly.”
Bosch’s customers demand forward-thinking security solutions that help them capture, and capitalize on, their IoT data. Bosch relies on NetApp to help make sure that their customers’ valuable data is always available.
“We work with NetApp because they are the data authority,” said Schuster. “NetApp offers the technologies that ensure that our systems are up and running and makes managing large data volumes easy with maximum reliability while lowering costs.”
With the power of data, Bosch is pushing security to the next level, and NetApp is giving them the tools they need to achieve their goals.
Bosch Security and Safety Systems helps protect lives, buildings, and assets. Its data-driven approach empowers customers to build a safer, more secure world via video surveillance, intrusion detection, fire detection, voice evacuation systems, access control and management systems, as well as professional audio and conference systems.
