Which Bosch alarm do I need?

This is a very common question, and this is the best place to start if you want a Bosch alarm. There are a large number of control panels and detectors available, but don’t let this deter you. There’s no need to get technical either! This Blog will help you choose the best Bosch ALARM kit for you.

All Kits come with everything you need for a complete system (except cable).

Solution 3000

One of Boschs newest panels which is set to become their most popular panel. It has 16 Zones onboard and a choice of keypads including traditional, English text and two sizes of touch screen keypads (4.3" and 7").

A new App and Ethernet connection (with additional module) allows full remote control of the alarm and its outputs, and a quick history of what has set the alarm off. Compatible with the new Radion range of wireless gear (with additional receiver) this is the panel for home and small business installations.

Solution 2000

Bosch's newest but smallest panel - Similar to the 3000 above but with no wireless Radion compatability except for on/off remotes. 8 fully programable zones.

Great for those smaller installations like sheds, safes, temperture monitoring etc. and where wireless equipment isn't needed. Can be used for a small home or office.

Dialler on-board.

Solution 6000

The flagship of the Bosch security range, this panel has some impressive features. Upgradeable to 144 zones, hardwired or wireless, and the inclusion of fully featured access control functions.

There is a wide range of external keypads, swipe card readers and biometric (finger scan) readers available for any access control application. Up to 16 doors can be controlled, with 250 users (cards / pins / scans).

You can split the installation into up to 8 alarmed areas, which act as totally independent alarm systems. These “virtual” alarms can be turned on and off without affecting any other armed areas. Great for factories, stores, office units when you can have one area armed, while the other is open.

The 2G GSM card available for the 144 allows fully independent SMS text messaging straight from the control board (It takes a SIM card) No phone line needed! You can even SMS the panel to operate outputs, or turn the alarm on or off (iphone App available). This panel seems to do everything. Feel free to contact one of our Bosch techs if you need any help choosing the Bosch alarm that’s right for you.

It's not overkill "out of the box" and is great for homes and business. The beauty of this panel is that it can be expanded exactly to the customers requirements no matter how small or how big!

Solution 844

The smallest of the Bosch range, this is a 4 zone panel, with an additional 4x 24 hour zones (like fire alarms etc). Often installed by builders in blocks of units as the base model. Beware that this panel is cheap, but can’t use Bosch wireless sensors, and you can’t program zones 5,6,7, or 8 as normal burglary zones. It’s technically a 4 zone panel only. They are great for small applications like Air Conditioner monitoring, cool rooms, high temp and equipment monitoring.


Older and discontinued kits:

 

Solution 16i - This is a 16 zone alarm panel very similar to the Solution 16-Plus, but has an icon keypad instead of a full Graphics Keypad. We don’t sell this panel, but we are able to order one if you specifically want one.

Solution 16-Plus  (NOT AVAILABLE AFTER 31st December 2014)- This kit has been replaced by the Solution 6000. By far the most popular Bosch panel on the market, this system has a full English display keypad, easy programming and up to 16 zones (Hardwired, wireless, or any mixture of the two). It also can SMS you over a normal land line (it dials a 1300 number) and sends you a text message with the same zone descriptions that you’ve programmed into the English keypad! Just brilliant. A very popular panel for the Home or Small to Medium business.

Compatible with the full range of Bosch remotes and wireless sensors. Also can be upgraded to a Prox keypad which allows the user to swipe a tag at the keypad instead of remembering a pin number. Great for children and the elderly. Can programmed to send a SMS when a certain person swipes their prox tag (mine texts me when my daughter comes home from school.) DTMF control available too, so you can arm and disarm the panel from and touch tone phone.

Solution 64 (NO LONGER AVAILABLE) - Similar to the Solution 16-Plus, but with the ability to add zones up to 64 in total. You will need expanders to do this. It also has handy access control integrated into the panel for up to 6 external doors and 8 internal doors. Has all the features of the Solution 16-Plus – plus more!

Solution 144 (NO LONGER AVAILABLE - REPLACED WITH SOLUTION 6000) Once flagship of the Bosch security range, this panel has some impressive features. Upgradeable to 144 zones, hardwired or wireless, and the inclusion of fully featured access control functions. There is a wide range of external keypads, swipe card readers and biometric (finger scan) readers available for any access control application. Up to 16 doors can be controlled, with 250 users (cards / pins / scans). You can split the installation into up to 8 alarmed areas, which act as totally independent alarm systems. These “virtual” alarms can be turned on and off without affecting any other armed areas. Great for factories, stores, office units when you can have one area armed, while the other is open.

The 2G GSM card available for the 144 allows fully independent SMS text messaging straight from the control board (It takes a SIM card) No phone line needed! You can even SMS the panel to operate outputs, or turn the alarm on or off (iphone App available). This panel seems to do everything.
