Bosch provides security to Suzhou Center, China
The city of Suzhou, just west of Shanghai, is famed as the Venice of the Far East. One of the newest showpieces in the city is the Suzhou Center, a 1.1 million square metre waterfront complex of shopping malls, office buildings, residential towers and a sumptuous hotel. Bosch has provided video surveillance, intrusion alarm, access control and public address systems for the Center.
Over 3,200 Bosch HD cameras secure Suzhou Center, covering the full range of operational security needs from surveillance to tracking. High-level surveillance is ensured through fixed DINION and FLEXIDOME IP cameras as well as AUTODOME IP pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) cameras.
In addition to its surveillance functions, the AUTODOME IP dynamic 7000 HD cameras feature intelligent object tracking allowing security personnel to track moving targets automatically.
Eight Bosch Video Management Systems (BVMS) integrate all 3,200 FLEXIDOME, DINION and AUTODOME IP cameras for central management by the main control centre.
Intrusion detection is managed by seven DS7400 Intrusion Panels that have over 200 sensors. Each of these can be programmed for up to eight areas and are programmable by local keypad or remotely.
Access control is handled by two installations of Bosch’s Access Professional Edition (APE). APE controls doors, making sure only authorized personal can enter restricted areas.
For public address and evacuation instruction, Bosch has supplied a PRAESIDEO system with over 5,000 ceiling and cabinet speakers that are broken into over 80 zones and managed from two control centres. Thanks to its superb sound quality, the PRAESIDEO system also provides background music in the public areas of the Suzhou Center.
