    From BVMS 10.0 onwards BVMS is an ONVIF Profile S conformant client. Cameras which are listed as Profile S compliant product on the ONVIF website are supported based on the ONVIF Profile S functionality. In the table below you can find an overview of the tested and supported ONVIF cameras for BVMS.   Version List of tested cameras BVMS 7.5 BVMS 7.5 list of tested ONVIF cameras  BVMS 8.0 BVMS 8.0 List of tested ONVIF cameras  BVMS 9.0 BVMS 9.0 List of tested ONVIF cameras  BVMS 10.0 BVMS 10.0 List of tested ONVIF cameras  BVMS 10.0.1 BVMS 10.0.1 List of tested ONVIF cameras  BVMS 10.1 BVMS 10.1 List of tested ONVIF cameras    The table below shows in which situation a specific camera can be connected to BVMS and is supported. BVMS version BVMS 9.0 and older BVMS 10.0 and newer ONVIF Profile S compliant camera Yes Yes Yes Yes BVMS tested camera Yes No Yes No           Supported camera Yes No Yes Yes   For BVMS version 10.0 and above, please make sure to go through these steps: Please check the List of tested cameras. If the device is not listed in the List of tested cameras, then please check   here   and make sure that your device is ONVIF Profile S compliant. If your camera is not listed in the tested cameras and is not listed on the ONVIF website as Profile S conformant, we cannot help you when you have an issue with this device. You should approach the device manufacturer to certify the device as ONVIF Profile S conformant. For example, if you have an   Axis camera, M1004 model, please fill in your product details in the Application Type, Profile(s), Manufacturer and the Product Name fields, under the   Product Search   option, and press on the “Search” button: 3. If your device is ONVIF profile S compliant you can contact Bosch Central Technical Support and request assistance. Additional information: Cameras listed as tested are owned by Bosch and issues can be fully investigated by Bosch. Cameras not listed as tested are not owned by Bosch. Solving issues might take longer as it requires collaboration with the camera vendor. Bosch support teams might need to refer to the camera manufacturer’s support line to help fixing the issue. We consider the firmware listed on the ONVIF website as the minimum firmware version of a camera. Please let us know if you run into issues with newer firmware versions so that we can investigate those accordingly. If the problem is a firmware regression, we might need to refer you to the camera manufacturer for support.

    When working with previous versions of BVMS, remote connectivity was cumbersome due to the amount of port mapping that needed to be configured. BVMS 7.5 provides a new method of remote connectivity utilizing Secure Shell (SSH) Tunnelling. The attached document (attachments can be found on the bottom of the page) describes the set-up and configuration of the SSH functionality in BVMS. In BVMS 10.1 we have added the capability for a management server (or DIVAR IP) to act as a bridge between a corporate network and a video network. We have described the configuration of this scenario in the BVMS 10.1 - Unteaming network interface cards document.

    Compared to hardware, in which it is relatively easy to define an end-of-support concept based on the expected lifetime, software behaves totally different. In theory, when the environment does not change, software can still be running ten years after it has been installed. As new versions of the software are released regularly, it is important for customers to know what they can expect from Bosch Building Technologies when the software is purchased. This document describes how Bosch Building Technologies handles the life-cycle of the BVMS, BIS, AMS, and APE, and in which state a specific release can reside. Additionally this document lists the up-to-date situation for all of those software packages.

    Security guards as well as operators are all member of this Slack channel and use the channel to collaborate. Guards can use their mobile phones to upload still images or movies to the channel for archiving by the security operators. Security operators are able to send snapshots (directly from BVMS), videos (exported), or chat messages to instruct security guards. BVMS automatically posts events to the channel and, optionally, can post camera snapshots or short video clips of incidents into the channel automatically. The attached document provides more insights into the system configuration.
