After you have configured your Bosch intrusion panel, you can enable communication with Security Center using a B426 Ethernet module. This is optional.

Before you begin

Set the address switch on the Ethernet module, connect the Ethernet module to the panel, and then log on to the module's web page. For more information, see your Bosch documentation.

What you should know

  • The B426 Ethernet module requires Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2.
  • Bosch B series panels support Mode 2.

Procedure

  1. On the Basic Network Settings page of the module's web page, do the following:
    1. Configure the IPv4 settings.
    2. Set the IPv6 option to No.
    3. Take note of the TCP/UDP Port Number. You must specify this port number when you add the intrusion detection unit in Security Center.
    The TCP/UDP port number must be different than the Bosch Remote Programming Software (RPS) port number.
    1. From the Legacy TCP Automation Enable drop-down list, select Mode 2: No as the automation mode of operation you configured for the panel:
    2. Click OK.
  2. On the Encryption and Security Settings page, do the following:
    1. From the Encryption Enable drop-down list, select No.
    2. From the Web and Automation Security drop-down list, select Mode 2: Enable as the automation mode of operation you configured for the panel:
    3. Click OK.
  3. On the Maintenance page, do the following:
    1. From the Web Access Enable drop-down list, select Yes.
      IMPORTANT: If the Web Access Enable option and the Panel Programming Enable option are both set to No, you will lock yourself out of the Ethernet module configuration.
    2. From the Panel Programming Enable option drop-down list, select No.
      Disabling the Panel Programming Enable option ensures that your custom settings on the Ethernet module are maintained when you connect the panel to Security Center.
    3. Click OK.
  4. Click Save and Execute.
