Marmara Park gets complete Bosch security system
TURKEY: One of the largest shopping centres in Turkey, Istanbul’s Marmara Park has been outfitted with a networked and integrated security solution from Bosch. Local Bosch partner Entegre designed a modular and scalable security system that meets all the standards as set out in EN54, comprising fire and voice evacuation systems, video surveillance, access control and intrusion detection – all centrally managed and operated via Bosch's Building Integration System.
The shopping centre is designed in a galaxy-theme, with space-related lighting, planet models and a theme park for visitors. With a total floor space of 100,000 sq-m, 250 individual shops and restaurants, a hypermarket, a cinema complex and parking for 4,000 cars, Marmara Park serves approximately 40,000 customers per day.
The Bosch fire alarm system consists of four networked Modular Fire Panel 5000 Series with 59 loops supporting more than 5,000 fire detectors. It is tightly integrated with the Bosch Praesideo voice evacuation system, which can also be used for announcements and background music in normal operations. With 64 amplifiers, this system supports 140 independent zones, allowing for targeted messaging in case of an evacuation.
Almost 300 cameras and 18 digital video recorders provide video surveillance of the entire premises. Entegre also installed an access control system for non-public areas within the centre as well as the Bosch Modular Alarm Platform MAP 5000 with more than 1,000 detectors. This reportedly allows the operator to exactly locate every alarm in real time as well as the panic buttons installed in each shop, enabling fast response to any incident. Furthermore, the entire security system can be configured and operated from one central location or distributed consoles.
