Mobotix CCTV SoftwareThe newly-available MOBOTIX App is a mobile video management solution for Apple* iPhone, iPad, iPad mini and iPod touch devices that improves everyday convenience and security. With this free-of-charge App, MOBOTIX users can access their video systems anytime from anywhere in the world and have mobile Internet access via WLAN (Wi-Fi) or UMTS/3G. Bandwidth-optimized remote access to live feeds and recordings, as well as an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand interface with a wide range of system functions make the MOBOTIX App an outstanding premium solution.

Thanks to MOBOTIX’ decentralized system architecture for high-resolution IP video systems, data storage, alarming and recording take place directly inside the cameras. The networked cameras form a kind of data cloud that the App accesses to display the desired information in a user-friendly manner. This makes management and control of MOBOTIX cameras and the T24 IP Video Door Station easy and convenient. Thanks to the App’s intuitive user interface, all cameras and recorded events can be viewed immediately at any time.

Bandwidth-optimised video display

With the App, it is easy to establish an intercom connection with cameras that have microphones and loudspeakers. This works both for local networks and for remote access. The recordings from individual cameras and camera groups can be filtered by events or chronology and played back via the integrated video player. If the MOBOTIX App is on the same local (WLAN) network as the video source, live feeds and recordings can normally be viewed in the App at full resolution. When the App is used on the road and the connection is too slow for hi-res video, the requested live feeds and recordings can be compressed and scaled down inside the camera before being transmitted to the App. If an image area is zoomed in on, the camera transmits not the entire image but only the zoomed section to the App, at the most suitable resolution. This streaming method, which was specially developed by MOBOTIX, is the first that offers bandwidth-optimised compression of the data without compromising either important image details or a smooth frame rate.

Intelligent App detects WLAN (Wi-Fi) networks automatically

The App automatically detects all cameras connected to the local network. Cameras that are outside of the local network can be connected via DynDNS. Once set up, the App remembers all the settings and automatically switches to the right configuration as soon as the iPhone/iPad joins a familiar WLAN network. For example, if the App detects the home WLAN network, transmission will proceed according to the settings configured for this network. Similarly, when the user changes location and uses the iOS device via WLAN in a place such as their office or vacation home, the access settings for this are switched to automatically. Users thus have quick, convenient access from anywhere without having to re-enter the network data for a camera (local or remote address).

Easy control and management of T24 IP video door station with premium App

The App automatically provides mobile notifications when someone rings the doorbell, as well as offering options for two-way communication with the visitor and for remote door opening. Thanks to MOBOTIX’ hemispheric video technology, the entire entrance area of the IP Video Door Station can be viewed. The App’s video player also plays back any new mailbox messages. The virtual PTZ function available in the App enables remote digital panning, tilting and zooming of the video systems – even in recordings and at a later time. Above-average image quality is given by a resolution of 3.1 megapixels.

Access rights and security

To avoid any unauthorized access to MOBOTIX video systems in the event of theft or loss, the device owner can set up a security PIN for accessing the App. Individual App functions can also be PIN-locked for persons that have access to the iOS device but should not have all user rights. For example, a user can be given access rights to view the camera’s live feed but not to open the door. Thanks to integrated back-up and restoring of the App configuration, any accidentally changed or deleted settings can be retrieved quickly and easily. In addition, the built-in online help tool assists users to quickly learn how to use the App.

All MOBOTIX cameras with firmware 4.1.4.70 or higher can make full use of all the App’s functions. Firmware updates can be downloaded free of charge from the MOBOTIX website. The MOBOTIX App for iPhone*, iPad*, iPad mini* and iPod* is now available in German and English, with further language versions to follow.

MOBOTIX S14 FlexMount

The S14 FlexMount from MOBOTIX, the world’s first flexible double hemispheric camera, is now available. The camera, which is available in both mono (S14M) and dual (S14D) versions, features miniature lens units and offers a wide range of application opportunities. For instance, the S14D can be equipped with two hemispheric lens units with integrated microphone that are connected to the main housing via cables.

This makes it possible to fully secure two rooms located next to or on top of one another with just one single S14. The slim design of the module units, which are available in white and black, permit an extremely discreet installation.

Two rooms secured with one single camera

The S14 FlexMount offers the option to set up two hemispheric lens units simultaneously in order to completely cover two adjacent rooms with just one single S14D. When installed in a certain way, the S14D can also see around corners or secure indoor and outdoor areas at the same time. The two sensors allow the S14 to generate two distortion-corrected, high-resolution 180° panorama images, each with a resolution of 3.1 megapixels. All other MOBOTIX lenses, from super-wide angle to tele lens, will be available in the near future as day or night versions.

The S14 is the world’s first hemispheric day-and-night camera. When both modules with black-and-white and color sensors are mounted directly next to each other and cover the same area, the camera automatically chooses the best available mode depending on the lighting conditions. This provides for excellent colours in daylight as well as superb light sensitivity in dark environments. Panning and zooming into the image is done purely electronically. The user is provided with detailed views and other image sections without any mechanical movement, meaning that there is no wear-and-tear to the camera and no maintenance is required.

Weatherproof, discreet and energy efficient

Both module units and the separate housing with the latest dual camera board are weatherproof in accordance with IP65 and operate in a temperature range of -30°C to +60°C (-22°F to +140°F). The flat housing, including flash memory with up to 64 GB and all external connectors (Ethernet, MiniUSB, MxBus), can be installed discreetly and with optimal protection behind a wall or ceiling panel so that only the lens units in their ultra-compact protective housing are visible. Power is supplied very cost effective via a network cable (PoE). At less than five watt-hours, the energy consumption is extremely low.

Wide range of application opportunities

The camera’s technical features and very discreet mounting open up a whole range of application opportunities. In L-shaped rooms, for example, the two sensor modules can be positioned at the corner in correct angles to each other, therefore capturing the entire room without any blind spots. Therefore, the S14 is particularly well-suited for use in hotels, banks and retail stores where the highest levels of security and discretion are required. The S14 can also demonstrate its strengths at security gates and in offices. MOBOTIX also offers the appropriate installation accessories for mounting the sensor module on thicker walls. Using several extension pieces (each approx. 40 mm), longer “tunnel holes” through a wall can also be bridged.

MOBOTIX software included free of charge

As usual with all MOBOTIX products, the complete software for configuration and operation of the camera is integrated directly into the camera. Additionally, professional video management software can be downloaded from the website free of charge.

    "We had our Communal TV IRS System and CCTV System installed by ZimCos AVS for our block of flats and they did a fantastic job for both. They completed the work in the agreed deadline and were the cheapest quote we obtained."
