The world of video surveillance is still shifting towards becoming full IP day-by-day. Small and medium businesses, for example, might still be in the transition from analogue to IP, planning to upgrade their video surveillance solution step-by-step. Finding a suitable recording device for this transition could be an issue. Or, in case the video surveillance system has already been switched to full IP, small and medium businesses may face a challenge in finding a scalable recording solution to grow with their business.
These organisations need a video surveillance solution that can be tailored to fit their growing needs. With the DIVAR network and hybrid recording devices, Bosch provides exactly that. Specifically designed for 24/7 operation, these devices offer the ability to create video surveillance solutions with professional security features that are easy to install and simple to use. The DIVAR network 2000 and 3000 series and the DIVAR hybrid 3000 are primarily standalone solutions for businesses with one location, such as independent retailers, convenience stores or medium sized hotels. The DIVAR network 5000 and DIVAR hybrid 5000 models are designed to be easily mounted in a 19” rack, making them suitable for medium businesses and chains of stores that prefer hideaway installation below the counter, in a separate server room or another suitable location.
For those small and medium businesses that already have gone digital, the DIVAR network 2000 (16 channels), 3000 and 5000 (both 32 channels) are cost-effective ways to invest in a future-proof IP video surveillance system that can be scaled as their business grows. Because of its scalability, the complete video surveillance system becomes more durable. Thanks to a built-in Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch, connecting IP cameras to these network video surveillance recorders requires no separate power adaptors, making installation quick and easy. The PoE switch can supply power to a maximum of 16 connected cameras. Each camera automatically receives its IP address from the recorder to enable simple plug-and-play operation.
The DIVAR hybrid 3000 and 5000 models are cost-effective recording devices for businesses with an existing analogue video surveillance solution that they would like to upgrade to IP one step at a time. It is possible to replace all analogue cameras over time as all 32 available channels can be equipped with network IP video surveillance cameras. A maximum of 16 analogue cameras can be connected to one DIVAR hybrid recording device. Both hybrid models offer the same interface and user experience as the well-known DIVAR AN family for analogue video recorders, guided by simple menu selections and operator commands. Businesses can keep on using their installed analogue base and upgrade to IP where needed, without the hassle of learning a new way of working. The DIVAR hybrid models allow small and medium enterprises to make the transition to full IP video surveillance at the pace they feel comfortable with.
To remain future-proof, the DIVAR network and hybrid recorders enable easy monitoring and configuration as it is easy to watch live footage, playback recorded content, or reconfigure local unit settings anytime from anywhere. This can be done via the DIVAR Viewer app, available on smartphones (iOS and Android), and via the web browser. The app can also be used to control the pan, tilt and zoom functions. The Bosch DDNS service enables users to create a name for their recorder free of charge, making it easy to find the recorder without using an IP address when using a web browser.
The direct monitor output is ideal for desktop models that are often positioned on a counter. The monitor can be placed on or beside the device, giving the business owner an overview of live images from all connected cameras. With DIVAR hybrid models, it is also possible to connect an additional confrontation monitor. The DIVAR hybrid 5000 and DIVAR network 5000 are both designed to be easily mounted in a 19″ rack.
The DIVAR network and hybrid recording solutions help to construct future-proof IP video surveillance systems for small and medium businesses, allowing them to shift to a full IP video surveillance system, or expand it, step by step.
