Bosch 6000 Alarm System – Help Guide, Tips & Tricks

The Bosch 6000 alarm system is a true Australian classic. Both designed and manufactured in Australia, it is built around our requirements and environment.

The Bosch Solution 6000 Alarm system can provide 144 hard wired or 144 Wireless alarm zones with expansion modules. The alarm panel by itself can have a mixture of 16 radio ” requires wireless receiver module to enable” or wired zones. Examples of alarm devices are movement detectors, reed switches and smoke detectors.

The Solution 6000 has eight programmable areas and a stay area programmed for home or business after hours invasion protection. Meaning it can have a stay area with devices reed switches etc. that will go into alarm if opened while it’s after hours. Programmable areas mean you can partition the alarm system example: You have a keypad in your in the businesses front office to arm and disarm the office area and a code pad in the warehouse to arm and disarm that area separately. Or with programming you can operate both areas from the one keypad so one area can be armed while the other is disarmed and vice versa.

If your alarm system is a Bosch 6000 or Bosch 3000, this is fully compatible with the NBN. What this means is that you can get an ethernet/IP module which connects and notifies you via an app. If it isn’t we will recommend you add a GSM / GPRS module to your system which uses a sim card instead of the phone line.

Turning An Area All On

Use this function to turn an area All On. The Solution control panel is factory default only for one area. As soon as you turn an area on, exit time will start. Exit time allows you to exit the premises without sounding an alarm. Your security company programs the length of exit delay time.

1. Make sure that all zones are normal (not faulted).

2. Enter your PIN, then press the [ON] key.

If your PIN is valid and if all zones are normal, exit delay time will start. You should leave now. If your Solution control panel detects a faulted zone, you should return it to normal, or bypass the zone.
During exit delay, you may stop the area from turning on by entering your PIN followed by the [OFF] key.

3. To turn the system (or area) off, enter your PIN, then press [OFF].


Turning The System Off

When the system is on, you must enter through a designated entry door to prevent an alarm. Opening a designated door (e.g. front door) will start entry time. During entry time, the keypad will emit a pulsing tone “beep” to remind you to turn the system off. To turn the area off, enter your PIN followed by the [OFF] key before the entry delay time expires.

If you enter through the wrong door or fail to turn the system off before the entry delay time expires, you may sound an alarm. If an alarm occurs, silence the alarm (by entering your PIN followed by the [OFF] key) and call your security company to let them know that it is not an emergency situation.

1. Enter your PIN + [OFF] to turn the system (or area) off. The keypad will no longer display the ‘Lock’ or ‘Part’ icons.

Silencing Alarms

When the Solution control panel has registered an alarm, the keypad (s) and sirens will sound to alert personnel that an alarm occurred. The keypad will scroll all alarms on the keypad display for visual feedback. If you enter your PIN before the system dials your security company, the alarm report is cancelled (if programmed).

1. Enter your PIN + [OFF] to silence any alarm and turn the system off.

The keypad will continue to scroll all alarm events that caused the alarm. This is called alarm memory.

2. To clear alarm memory, turn the area on and off again (eg. PIN + [ON] + PIN + [OFF]).

Automatic Arming

Your system may have been programmed to automatically arm itself at a certain time of the day.

If for some reason you are still in the building when the auto arming is taking place then it is possible to extend or delay the auto-on time (automatic arming time) by one hour simply by entering your PIN during the auto-on pre-alert time. The auto-on pre-alert time sounds the keypad buzzer to warn you that the system will automatically turn All On, Part On or Part 2 On.

DTMF Quick Arm

If you forget to arm your system it may be possible for you to remotely arm it using a touch tone telephone if the remote arm option has been enabled by your installer.
To arm the system call the number which the panel is connected to and when the panel answer you will here 3 beeps in accending frequency if the panel is in the disarmed condition. Press [0] + [#] to arm. You will hear 3 beeps in decending order when the panel arms.

All areas on the system will be armed regardless of there condition when using the DTMF quick arm function.
