Bosch Solution 3000 Wireless Alarm System Kit

Bosch Solution 3000 Wireless Alarm System Kit


The Bosch 3000 Wireless Alarm System can provide 16 hard wired or 16 Wireless alarm inputs. The alarm system can have a mixture of 16 wireless or wired zones. Examples of alarm devices are movement sensors, perimeter reed switches and smoke sensors.

The Bosch 3000 has 2 programmable areas and a stay area that can be configured for business or home invasion protection. This means it can have a stay area with sensors reed switches etc that will cause the alarm system to go off if opened while the stay area is armed. Areas mean you can split the alarm system so different parts of your premises can be armed while others remain disarmed. example: You have a keypad in your shops front office to arm and disarm the office area and a keypad in the stock area to arm and disarm that area separately. Plus with programming, you can control both areas from the one code pad so one area can be armed while the other is disarmed and vice versa. This functionality can also be applied in a home situation where the areas might be a garage and the house or upstairs downstairs.

The wireless receiver remote system allows the 3 and 4th key fob buttons can be programmed to control your house's garage roller doors. This ability is  useful as you will only need one keyfob for alarms and garage door operation. To allow this function with the 3000 panel requires programming and an extra output expansion module.

This wireless kit is suited to a two story home installation, see cabling installation issues. The kit comes with two Bosch wireless detectors. The kit comes with either a box siren/strobe or a slimline siren/strobe you can decide which siren you want when you order the kit.

2000/ 3000 Monitoring Options

The Standard Panel as supplied

The Bosch 3000 alarm system has an onboard standard phone dialer that communicates through the Telstra copper phone line network. This connection offers two dialling communication formats. The first is Contact IDdialling which is used to transfer alarms to a 24hr monitoring centre for paid monitoring. The second is Domestic dialling which is for self-monitoring. Domestic dialling works when the alarm goes off the alarm system dials the mobile phone numbers programmed when the person answers the phone call from home a siren is heard in the earpiece. An issue with this type of monitoring is it doesn't let you know which zone has gone into alarm it may be just one zone that is continually false alarming.

Connecting an IP reporting Network module 

When the IP module is added it enables the Bosch 3000 alarm to report through your business or home's internet connection i.e. NBN, cable or ADSL the alarm panel will communicate in two ways the first is by IP reporting to a back to base monitoring service for 24 hr paid monitoring. The other advantage of this module is a smartphone application which allows remote connection to the panel for alarm and output control. It is important to note that the application is different from the 6000 alarm panel and is only available through a wired broadband connection.

Connecting the GPRS module

An important thing to note is that you need to buy both the B450 PLUG-IN COMMUNICATOR INTERFACE and the B442 PLUG-IN 2G GPRS COMMUNICATOR to allow wireless communication as the GPRS communicator has to connect into the B450 communicator interface and the communicator interface plugs into the alarm panel connection socket. It is also important to note that an enabled sim card from a telco provider is required to allow communication through GSM or GPRS. The GPRS unit only allows Communication with a 24hr monitoring centre and domestic dialling format for remote self-monitoring. There is no smartphone application or text message enabled as with the solution 6000 alarm system GPRS module. If you really want text message self-monitoring you need to look at the 6000 alarm for GSM/GPRS or the 6000/ 16i for PSTN copper lines.

The reed switch in the picture is one of many different designs of reed switches for varied installation situations. Reed switches designed for aluminium doors are different to reed switches designed for timber doors. All reed switches cost around the same money, which is not expensive. The main reason for charging $90 for each reed switch installed is the labour cost. Quite often the reed switch locations involve tricky cabling installation and drilling aluminium doors etc where there is no second chance you need to get it right the first time see cabling installation issues. Prices quoted include cable installation.
