Bosch / SAST / OSSA Aims To Be Industry Standard IP Camera OS and App Store

By: John Honovich, Published on Sep 28, 2018

Bosch is betting tens of millions of dollars that their spinout SAST (Safety and Security Things) will become the defacto standard OS of IP cameras with an industry-wide app store fostering the mass use of AI analytics.

Simultaneously, a new Alliance, the OSSA has formed, with Hanwha, Milestone, Pelco, and Vivotek, joining Bosch.

Inside this note, based on IPVM's discussions with Bosch, SAST, and OSSA, we examine:

  • Why this will either financially fail completely or generate a cash cow for Bosch
  • The relationship between Bosch, SAST, and OSSA
  • How SAST is being built
  • What to expect from partners like Hanwha, Milestone, Pelco, and Vivotek
  • Which apps to expect for IP cameras
  • How this compares to Axis ACAP and how Axis is 'Apple' in this competition
  • IPVM's expectation for SAST / ACAP

UPDATE: April 2019 - added new developments shown at ISC West 2019.
