MOBOTIX recently announced the availability of a new suite of security solutions, including the S14 FlexMount, next-generation DualDome D14 cameras and the Hemispheric T24 Door Station with new modules. MOBOTIX also unveiled the development of a mobile app for use with the T24 IP VideoDoor Station and the addition of enhanced analytics to its Q24 Hemispheric Camera.
MOBOTIX started 2012 with deliveries of the complete T24 IP Video Door Station. In addition to the hemispheric video door intercom, the T24-KeypadRFID, the Security Door Opener (T24-Doormaster) and optionally, the two-wire network module (T24-Info2wire+) is now available. Customers receive a powerful, complete video solution for door communication and access control. The new IP telephony standard enables theuser to establish a direct connection from the door station to any VoIP phone, computer or smartphone running VoIP software. By setting up the appropriate network infrastructure, the user will be able to establish a video connection, remotely open doors or view video messages and review recordings from anywhere around the world.
In addition, T24 customers will soon also be able to use their iPhone or iPad as a mobile remote station. The new MOBOTIX App allows a connection to the T24 to be established over the IP network from anywhere around the world using WLAN (Wi-Fi) or UMTS. The app provides fully automatic and mobile notifications when someone rings the doorbell, and offers options for two-way video communication with the visitor and can remotely open the door. It will also be possible to retrieve voice mailbox messages, live images and recordings from all integrated MOBOTIX door stations and cameras.
The S14 FlexMount from MOBOTIX is the world’s first flexible double hemispheric camera. It features miniature lens units and allows for a wide variety of application scenarios. For instance, the S14 can be equipped with two hemispheric module units and an integrated microphone that connect to the camera housing via cables. This makes it possible to fully secure two rooms located next to or on top of one anotherwith a single S14 system. Since the weatherproof camera (IP65) is very slim, it can be mounted discreetly.
MOBOTIX is also unveiling the second generation of the D14D DualDome camera, which can record dual images with a resolution of up to 6.2 megapixels. The new D14D features a vandalism sensor that detects forced manipulation of the camera or the direction of the lens. The new D14D Day/Night Fix model is equipped with day and night sensors that are pre-installed and mounted precisely parallel to each other to allow for even simpler and faster fine tuning. The D14D-180 model delivers extremely highresolution 180 panorama images that can be greatly magnified, both in live and recorded modes. This enables users to reliably analyze any detail in the monitored area.
With the additional MOBOTIX video analysis tools for the Hemispheric Q24, MOBOTIX enhanced image data processing inside the camera, thus offering new and valuable information sources for process optimization or marketing purposes. MxAnalytics makes it possible to monitor people and objects and collect statistical data. Specifically, heatmaps provide an analysis made of contour lines in the image, with the camera showing how often each line is passed over within a specified period. The most frequented areas are highlighted in color on a heatmap and the results are saved in the camera, and can be exported via various interfaces.
The new security solutions are complemented by new accessories such as the MX-NPS3 Network Power Switch for connecting up to three IP cameras/end devices with a network cable and a power supply. By simply inserting a UMTS stick into the weatherproof special housing, the connected end devices become accessible wirelessly around the world.
Users can boost the performance of the entire video system by adding any of the new weatherproof and easy-to-install functional boxes: MX-GPS-Box, MX-NPA-Box, MX-232-IO-Box and the MX-Repeater-Box. The appliances introduce useful features such as a central system time or act as power amplifiers. The functional boxes can be connected with all MOBOTIX cameras.
