Bosch’s AVIOTEC IP starlight 8000 Camera

May 6, 2020
Camera provides video-based fire detection optimized for twilight conditions

With a new version of its video-based fire detection system AVIOTEC IP starlight 8000, Bosch Building Technologies now 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. This leads to a significantly improved sensitivity without compromising the solution’s robustness against false alarms.

With the new firmware version 7.61, AVIOTEC IP starlight 8000 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. Thus, 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 high sensitivity at night.

Since the new solution from Bosch also works reliably with minimal ambient light, it saves costs for planning, installation and operation of lighting. Furthermore, it significantly reduces the risks for applications with high fire load in those low light conditions. This benefits, for example, operators of

multi-story car parks where risk is typically quite high. Here, AVIOTEC IP starlight 8000 guarantees reliable early detection to protect vehicles and electrical charging stations. In historical buildings, the solution can now also be installed in almost unused side rooms with minimal lighting, for example

through tiny windows. In all environments, the installed cameras can be used simultaneously for fire detection and video surveillance, which further reduces installation and operating costs.

The video-based fire detection AVIOTEC IP starlight 8000 is now delivered with the new firmware. Existing installations can be upgraded to the new technology by a free firmware update.
