Details on the core security system components, including keypads, detectors, and outputs can be found below. Other compatible devices for more advanced systems can be found in the section Optional Equipment. The chart below provides an overview of the key components that are commonly used to build a Bosch security system.
Driver has been installed, then from Device Manager, the APP2.0 board should be recognized as below. If APP2.0 board is not recognized, then you may try another USB port of your PC. Bosch’s Remote Programming Software (RPS) is a free. software download that is required to fully program a B Series panel (limited programming can be done via keypads). In addition to programming, RPS provides account record storage, remote control, mobile app profiles and diagnostics on specific control panels.
Choose from standard LCD keypads, a color graphical LCD touch screen or ATM-style keypads. A complete overview of available keypads and their features can be found below.
Bosch detectors provide best-in-class false alarm immunity and catch performance. A comprehensive portfolio of wired and wireless detectors is available and includes wall and ceiling mount motion detectors, glass break detectors, door/window contacts, request-to-exit PIR, seismic and shock detectors, and photoelectric beams.
B Series panels support both RADION and Inovonics wireless detectors when combined with the appropriate receiver.
Quick Selection Guide
B Series panels provide eight on-board inputs and can be expanded with the B208 octo-input module.
Expanding beyond eight inputs (points) requires the B208 octo-input module. Each module provides 8 inputs. B208 capacities vary by control panel model. Reference the panel capacity chart for details.
B Series panels provide three on-board outputs and can be expanded with the B308 octo-output module.
Output 1 is configurable and is typically used for sirens. Most 12V DC sirens are compatible with B Series panels. Outputs 2 and 3 are open collector outputs that are typically used for triggering other devices.
