MOBOTIX AG has unveiled the MxActivitySensor – a revolutionary technology that registers traveling movement of people and objects, while dismissing redundant changes and movement in the scene. This drastically reduces the number of false alarms. Through the development of the MxActivitySensor, MOBOTIX has re-invented a method for intelligent video motion detection.

"MxActivitySensor is a completely new technology that is literally five years ahead of existing video motion detection systems," says MOBOTIX founder and CEO, Dr. Ralf Hinkel. "The biggest problem with motion detection softwares today is the massive amount of false alarms. The MxActivitySensor reduces these false alarms with over 90%, with almost no configuration time". In this way, the MxActivitySensor also saves management time for the user. "Finding the real events in traditional motion detection software is like finding a needle in a haystack as every movement has triggered an alarm," continues Dr. Hinkel. "With the MxActivitySensor the user can concentrate on, and find real events fast and efficiently. We think it is a game changer and as normal with MOBOTIX software and applications, it is for free".

MxActivitySensor revolutionises activity detection

State-of-the-art, intelligent motion detection like that offered by the MxActivitySensor is only possible thanks to the decentralised system from MOBOTIX. "The MxActivitySensor is directly integrated in the camera, meaning analysis can take place there, too. Only relevant events trigger an alarm, which is sent out over the network. In this way, the users will save a tremendous amount of bandwidth, especially when there are many cameras installed in the network," says Dr. Hinkel. When a human or vehicle moves through the camera's field of view, MxActivitySensor triggers the camera to initiate an alarm action, such as recording, phone call, email, SMS etc. The MxActivitySensor ignores all other changes in the environment such as snow, rain, wind, light, moving clouds and trees. This intelligent management of motion detection is truly unique for the market.

Almost no configuration time

MxActivitySensor, once enabled and left at the default settings, is still more accurate than video motion detection, in most situations. This presents big savings in configuration time as compared with traditional video motion detection. "The hardest thing to do is to make the complicated easy and that is the whole idea with this piece of software. With the MxActivitySensor there is no need for specialists to install, manage and analyse the system on site. The power to do all this and to get the desired results is now available for all users", concludes Dr. Ralf Hinkel.

Availability

The new S15, D15 and V15 camera models are equipped with the unique MxActivitySensor. MxActivitySensor has been released within the latest MOBOTIX camera software update from 4.1.6 which is available as a free download. MxActivitySensor is compatible with the following camera models - Q24M, M24M, D24M, T24M, D14Di, S14 and V14 (Secure camera models only).

Will network requirements help you build your business or put you out of business?

Once upon a time, providers had end-to-end control when deploying a physical security platform, which is not the case anymore when we consider the modernisation to IP. When considering the move to IP physical security, the provider needs to ensure the customer has a robust PoE backbone to connect the IP security device back to the application. Network readiness requirements have complicated IP security deployments, making it challenging for current providers while opening the door to new compet...
