  • Page 10 Please dispose of these units at an environmentally compatible recycling facility, per European Directive 2002/96/EC. Environmental statement - Bosch has a strong commitment towards the environment. This unit has been designed to respect the environment as much as possible.
  • Page 11 Because the ISDN circuits are treated like telephone-network voltage, avoid connecting the SELV circuit to the Telephone Network Voltage (TNV) circuits. Video loss - Video loss is inherent to digital video recording; therefore, Bosch Security Systems cannot be held liable for any damage that results from missing video information. To minimize the risk of lost digital information, Bosch Security Systems recommends multiple, redundant recording systems, and a procedure to back up all analog and digital information.
