MOBOTIX Vandalism: Protecting the protector

Contact companySaveSaveSend to a friendSend to a friend
Manufacturer: MOBOTIX AG MOBOTIX AG
MOBOTIX V16 IP camera

The deterrent benefits of video surveillance technology are well-proven, but cameras themselves are vulnerable to being disabled by criminal or other vandals. In certain high-risk environments, installers are wise to consider devices that are certified to higher levels of resiliency against physical tampering. 

IK10 rated device

Alongside the well-known Ingress Protection (IP) rating which describes protection against water, dust and other elements, the European standard EN 62262 (also called IK) specifies a  number of tests that define an ability to withstand assault from devices such as heavy hammers or crowbars. At the higher end of the scale, an IK10 rated device such as the MOBOTX V16 can sustain strikes from a 5kg pendulum hammer with a 20 joules level of force.

Reduced risk of tampering

The unit also features special corner mounting design, shock sensor and security screws to reduce risk of tampering. Like the rest of the MOBOTIX range, the V16 uses a modular system design with optional image sensors for day, night and thermal use along with flash memory, microphone, speaker, PIR – all within a weatherproof (IP66) chassis.
