Bosch cameras keep a "baby watch" over pregnant elephants without adding visible light

Cameras deliver discreet surveillance

Bosch WZ16 and WZ18 Integrated Infrared Bullet Cameras help staff at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium monitor select groups of animals, including polar bears, elephants and tigers. Providing reliable, high-performance day and night surveillance, the cameras helped zoo staff keep a "baby watch" over pregnant elephants without adding visible light that would disturb the animals.

Problem: Zoo staff need a method for monitoring

  • Animals Day and Night
  • Surveillance equipment is essential for security and monitoring of large zoo animals
  • Night time imaging must be effective without disturbing the animals’ habitats
  • Vivid colour video required to feed live zoo cam used in partnership with local CBS affiliate

Solution: Bosch integrated infrared bullet cameras

  • WZ16 and WZ18 cameras deliver vivid colour images during the day
  • Integrated LEDs provide 60 feet of high-performance night vision under low light conditions
  • Compact design allows for discrete surveillance

Results: Improved awareness of animal activity

  • Cameras used during “baby watch” helped zoo capture two elephant births on video
  • Staff can monitor safety and security of animals at night without added lighting
  • Cameras feed video of polar bears to CBS’ live zoo cam
