Bosch releases Gen2 versions of Blue Line motion detectors

New Blue Line detectors designed to deliver better performance and easier installation


FAIRPORT, N.Y. (April 2011) – Bosch Security Systems, Inc. has launched the next generation of its top-selling Blue Line Motion Detectors. Blue Line Gen2 provides improved catch performance, enhanced false alarm immunity and easier installation for technicians. Available in standard and pet-friendly models, the new series is suitable for residential, retail and other commercial security applications.

Blue Line Gen2 Motion Detectors include passive infrared (PIR), Quad PIR detectors, and TriTech detectors that combine PIR and microwave technologies for more advanced analysis. All models use an interchangeable mounting base, enabling easy upgrades to more advanced detection technology in areas prone to false alarms. In addition, pet-friendly models can be set to “No Pet” to allow customers to use the same product in multiple applications, reducing inventory for security dealers.

For easy installation, the self-locking, two piece enclosure, integrated biaxial bubble level and removable terminal strip in the base reduce mounting time to mere seconds. The commercial grade terminal strip is designed to prevent incorrect wiring and eliminate future service calls. A flexible mounting height allows the detectors to be positioned from seven to nine feet without adjustment, assuring no coverage gaps up to 40 feet away from the detector.

Blue Line Gen2 Motion Detectors deliver an expanded 40x40 feet wall-to-wall, gap free coverage area. With First Step Processing, the detectors intelligently analyze motion to differentiate human targets from other sources of movement and automatically adjust sensitivity based on signal amplitude, polarity, slope and timing. This advanced technology also ensures the detectors’ two sensors agree there is an alarm before the relay activates – delivering an instant response to intruders without false alarms.

A host of additional features provide reliable performance for customers.
The sealed optical chamber prevents drafts and insects from affecting the detector, and pet immunity distinguishes between signals caused by humans and animals. Dynamic temperature compensation also adjusts sensitivity to accurately identify intruders regardless of room conditions.
