Four new functions for even more satisfied customers


Bosch has responded to the needs of your customers by continuously developing AMAX. The latest generation of AMAX features a total of 15 new functions, which open up new opportunities for your customers. Here are just four examples: f

Voice dialer: In the event of an alarm, AMAX can notify your customers via pre-recorded voice messages. The messages are automatically sent to up to 4 different phones and/or to a control center.


Simple setup of macros: Your customers can combine several different program functions in a macro, which can be executed with a single keystroke.


Master keypad: Enables easy and time saving operation of the entire system from a single keypad.


Remote control: Sited away from the main panel, the monitoring station enables you to set or deactivate the alarm system and perform certain tests. The monitoring station can thus perform service and maintenance tasks faster and more easily. At the same time, there is no requirement to disclose codes and safety information to external parties, such as security guards.

Perfect quality has many benefits

The advanced, reliable technology of the AMAX family gives your customers a clear advantage. This will pay off for you, because the best basis for good business is satisfied customers. Make a quality impression: with AMAX intrusion alarm systems by Bosch.

Reliable alarm transmission

AMAX intrusion alarm systems are suitable for many types of alarm transmission. An integrated dialer allows the AMAX control panel to connect to the PSTN telephone network. Connection via the internet is also possible – via either a wired IP network or wireless


Easy to use, easy to install

For easy operation, the control panel offers clearly structured and intuitive menus. Approx. 90% of the applications are preinstalled. Programming of the remaining functions can easily be performed via USB,

PC or directly on the AMAX keypad.

Quality to meet the highest requirements

The excellent reliability of AMAX intrusion alarm systems is proof of their high quality. They have been tested by independent laboratories and are certified in accordance with EN 50131-3 Grade 2.

Can be used for CCTV and fire detection

Your customers can combine the AMAX system with a video surveillance system by integrating Bosch IP cameras. It is also possible to display video images on smartphones and tablet PCs. This means that your customers can check alarm notifications quickly, reliably and at any time using live images. AMAX intrusion alarm systems can also be used for fire detection using either wired smoke detectors or RADION wireless smoke detectors.

Easy to install Easy to use

RADION wireless peripherals

The RADION range includes 15 different peripherals, which are connected to the AMAX intrusion alarm systems via a receiver.

RADION detectors – the wireless alternative

RADION wireless detectors are a convenient alternative to the wired Blue Line detectors. The extensive range covers 15 different products – from motion detectors and magnetic contacts to fire detectors. RADION wireless detectors can be combined with pre-installed

DSRF series wireless detectors by Bosch. The use of repeaters means that they can also operate in remote locations. Up to 8 repeaters can be used within an AMAX burglar alarm system. Thanks to auto-addressing, all

RADION components can be quickly integrated into the intrusion detection system.

Application example law firm: four new functions that will impress your customers


Voice dialer

In the event of an alarm, AMAX can notify your customers via prerecorded voice messages.

Voice dialer

As soon as the AMAX system in the law firm’s offices has registered an alarm, it automatically sends a prepared voice message to up to 4 phone numbers – for example, the firm’s attorneys. The recipient can then quickly decide what should happen next – for example, on-site verification or alerting the police.

Advantage: The spoken messages enable your customers to inform a control center and/or authorized persons about an alarm at any time, for example family members during holiday periods. The voice dialer is also pre-installed onboard, meaning that there is no need to order it as an extra feature or even to install it.


Simple setup of macros

Two assistants of the firm are responsible for arming different areas. Each uses his or her individual code. If one of them is away from the office due to illness or vacation, the other person takes over the task. Using a macro, that individual can arm the entire building without any additional effort.

Advantage: A macro allows you to combine several functions that can be activated with a single keystroke – thus saving the timeconsuming execution of individual functions.



Simple setup of macros

Your customers can combine up to 3 different program functions in a macro, which can be executed with a single keystroke.

AMAX Intrusion Alarm Systems | 11

Thanks to their new functions, the AMAX systems make it even easier to meet your customers’ needs.

Our application example shows the additional advantages that can be achieved. The example shown here is typical of many other similar applications that are possible with the latest AMAX innovations.


Remote control

Via a remote control center, your customers can set or deactivate the alarm system and perform certain tests.


Remote control

The law firm is linked to a monitoring station for maintenance and security services. In the event of an alarm, the monitoring station sends a security guard to investigate. As soon as the guard is on site, the monitoring station can remotely deactivate the intrusion detection system.

Advantage: The lawyers can use the services of the monitoring station in absolute privacy – without disclosing codes to external parties, such as the security guard.


Master keypad

Enables easy and time saving operation of the entire system from a single control panel.


Master keypad

If the firm’s lawyers are on the road or in court, the reception staff assume responsibility for the operation of the intrusion alarm system. A master keypad is set up in reception, making the entire system fast and efficient to use.

Advantage: At the master keypad, employees can monitor and control the status of each office (activated/ deactivated). This saves having to manually check each individual workstation or office to individually set the various alarms.
