The Bosch Solution 3000 Alarm System Kit can provide 16 hard wired or 16 Wireless alarm zones. The alarm panel can have a mixture of 16 radio "requires wireless receiver module to enable" or wired zones. Examples of alarm devices are movement detectors, reed switches and smoke detectors.
The Solution 3000 has two programmable areas, and a stay area is programmable for home or business after hours invasion protection. Meaning it can have a stay area with devices reed switches etc. that will go into alarm if opened while it's after hours. Programmable areas mean you can partition the alarm system example: You have a keypad in your businesses front office to arm and disarm the office area and a code pad in the warehouse to arm and disarm that area separately. Or with programming you can operate both areas from the one keypad so one area can be armed while the other is disarmed and vice versa. The configurations used in a home situation where the areas might be a shed and the house.
If you install a wireless remote kit to it, the 3 and 4th key fob buttons can be setup to control your home's garage doors this function can be helpful as you will only need one remote for alarm and garage operation. To make this feature work, it requires programming and an extra output expansion module
2000/ 3000 Monitoring Options
Out of the box panel
The Bosch 2000/ 3000 panel comes with an on board PSTN dialer that can connect and communicate through the standard Telstra copper phone line. This connection offers two dialling formats. The first is Contact ID, which is used to transmit alarms to a central monitoring station for paid monitoring services. The second is Domestic dialling programmed for self-monitoring. When the alarm goes off the alarm system dials, the phone numbers programmed when you answer you hear a siren in the earpiece. The only problem with this form of monitoring is it doesn't inform you which zone has alarmed it may be just one zone that is false alarming.
Adding the IP reporting module
With this IP module added it converts the panel to report through your home or business broadband connection whatever format the connection uses i.e. NBN, cable or ADSL the board will communicate in two ways the first is by IP reporting to a central monitoring station for 24 hours paid monitoring. Another advantage of this module is there is a smartphone app for Android or iPhone. Allows remote connection to the panel for remote alarm and output control. It is important to note that the app is different from the 6000 board and is only available through a wired broadband connection.
Adding the GPRS module
The first thing to note is that you need to purchase both the B450 PLUG-IN COMMUNICATOR INTERFACE and the B442 PLUG-IN 2G GPRS COMMUNICATOR to enable wireless communication as the GPRS communicator has to plug into the communicator interface and the communicator interface plugs into the panel. It is also important to note that you will also need an enabled sim card from a telco provider. The GPRS module only enables Communication with a 24-hour monitoring centre and domestic dialling self-monitoring. There is no smartphone application or text message enabled as with the solution 6000 GPRS module.
NOTE: This Alarm Kit needs installation by a qualified Alarm Installer or electrician
