MOBOTIX are showcasing its innovation solutions in the areas of video security, building automation and access control at The Light + Building 2018 event, scheduled to take place from the 18th to 23rd March at Messe Frankfurt exhibition grounds in Frankfurt, Germany.

Information on a range of new software solutions will also be presented to trade fair attendees at Booth 80, Hall 9.1. One solution that will stand out at the trade exhibition is the Cactus Concept, which aims at minimising the risk posed by cyberattacks. In addition to the solutions from MOBOTIX, there are also security solutions from Genetec, a partner company of MOBOTIX, on display. 

The powerful, intuitive MOBOTIX video management system, MxManagementCenter (MxMC), will soon be released with new features in version 1.8 free of charge. The most important new feature is the new 'Configuration' view with a new 'Configuration Bar' that enables users to change the configuration on up to 80 cameras simultaneously with a single click.

This is highly advantageous: It is no longer necessary to call up each individual camera in the browser if, for example, the user wants to review the image settings for an entire camera group and then set these to a standard value. In this manner, MxMC 1.8 cuts time and costs for configuration enormously, particularly for very large systems. MxMC 1.8 continues to support POS functionality for direct integration of Vectron POS systems and will be available for download on the MOBOTIX website, together with detailed information, starting in May 2018.If the network connection or NAS fails, the camera’s SD card automatically takes over storage

High-security data storage

The new MxFFS with buffered archive from MOBOTIX offers a unique high-security storage concept that prevents absolute loss of data if the camera’s primary storage target fails.

Starting with the new firmware (5.1.0.x), an external NAS (network attached storage) system can now be configured as the primary storage target within the securely encrypted MOBOTIX MxFFS storage system, and the SD card inside the camera can be configured as a secondary (backup) storage target.

If the network connection or NAS fails, the camera’s SD card automatically takes over storage, and then it automatically and seamlessly transfers all data to the NAS as soon as the network connection has been restored and the NAS is available or it has been replaced or repaired. The system release is designed for use with all MOBOTIX cameras up to models x14/x24. 

IP video door station and cameras

Users can receive notifications from the doorbell of a MOBOTIX IP Video Door Station (and even open it) and images from MOBOTIX IP cameras on their smartphones or tablets thanks to MxBell, the free of charge app.

Thanks to the new playback function in MxBell 2.0, it is now also possible to search through the recorded events for the integrated door stations and cameras by a specific point in time and play back the individual clips. In addition, the Grid view will simultaneously display up to four cameras, which is a great advantage for small installations. MxBell 2.0 will be available from Apple’s App Store and from Google Play starting in April 2018.The Cactus Concept represents a holistic approach to protecting MOBOTIX products against the threat of cyberattacks and incorporates tools and information

Cactus Concept

The Cactus Concept plays a central role in the company’s exhibition this year. It is designed as a solution for reliable and complete protection of end-to-end video systems against cyberattacks. The Cactus Concept represents a holistic approach to protecting MOBOTIX products against the threat of cyberattacks and incorporates tools and information.

The concept’s measures provide customers and partners with targeted support in protecting their environments through video surveillance and access control over the long term.

Genetec will present the company’s solutions jointly at the MOBOTIX booth. One solution is its Security Center, which unifies video management, access control, license plate capture and communication management on one platform. The Security Center can also provide support for one or even several company sites using MOBOTIX end devices.
