Bosch Camera Detects Fire in Twilight Conditions
Bosch Building Technologies’ new version of its video-based fire detection system AVIOTEC IP starlight 8000 enables the early detection of fires with cameras even in low-light conditions. Both flames and smoke are reliably detected down to an ambient lighting level of 2 lux. For this purpose, Bosch has extended its proven video analytics in the camera by artificial intelligence, which processes the results of more than 20 algorithms and makes an alarm decision on this basis, leading to a significantly improved sensitivity without compromising the solution’s robustness against false alarms. With the new firmware version 7.61, the solution is suitable for application in areas with very low light such as warehouses and production plants at night. In case of changing environmental conditions, the sensitivity can be adapted to the requirements using programmable schedules. For example, it is possible to optimize the robustness against false alarms during busy daytime operation, while deserted buildings, where quickest detection is required, benefit from the high sensitivity at night.
