Mobotix IP cameras for automated home surveillance.

A more considered approach to your surveillance needs in an automated home.

When building or renovating the electronic infrastructure you install in your home needs to last longer and provide better long term value than most consumer grade IP cameras. Just as Clever Home recommends quality alarm panels, home automation equipment and speakers from manufacturers of professional-standard equipment, we also recommend Mobotix IP cameras for your home surveillance. Mobotix IP cameras may be used inside or outside, and may also be integrated with these other home automation components for improved functionality by a Clever Home automation Engineer.
     You may benefit greatly by considering your complete surveillance system including LAN, recording, search and playback hardware and software, when selecting your home surveillance cameras. After you have experienced the superb quality of a properly designed, installed and programmed Mobotix IP camera surveillance system integrated with your home automation by Clever Home, you may find it difficult to accept anything less. Read more below to discover why.

How can home owners benefit from using Mobotix IP cameras?
  • Fewer Mobotix cameras can provide better home security, and improved aesthetics.
    One panoramic 6 MP high resolution Mobotix Q25 IP camera can replace up to four ordinary surveillance cameras, indoors or outdoors. Even more flexible are the Mobotix S15 dual FlexMount and Mobotix M15 dual outdoor overt IP cameras with their ability to connect one or two panoramic 6MP camera sensor modules to a shared base module. The vandal-resistant Mobotix T25 home video-intercom and access control door station doubles as a 6 MP front door surveillance camera, making a separate entrance camera unnecessary. Your home aesthetics are further enhanced because external IP65 rated Mobotix cameras do not require "traffic camera" style external enclosures when used outside.
  • Mobotix 6MP Moonlight Technology sensors for home automation IP cameras.

  • Mobotix IP cameras provide reliable cost-effective automated home surveillance over the long term.
    Using high quality components designed for operating extremes and no lens or positioning motors, you can expect years of reliable home surveillance performance from Mobotix cameras installed by Clever Home. Mobotix also has a history of releasing free firmware updates that allow existing installed Mobotix IP cameras to support new features and benefits, such as the Award-Winning MxActivitySensor (more details below). Mobotix IP cameras can reduce your ongoing costs in the years following installation because:
    - Mobotix has a policy to never charge for software or firmware updates, or any software licenses.
    - Decentralised Mobotix IP cameras don't require heating/cooling and are more energy-efficient.
    - High quality Mobotix IP cameras make frequent camera replacement unnecessary.

  • FREE professional user interface mobile device Apps.
    Choose from the easy-to-use MxBell App for Android or iOS devices for receiving Push Notifications and answering calls from Mobotix home automation door stations and viewing live video from Mobotix Cameras, or the Mobotix Mobile App for iOS devices for viewing live video and video recordings.
  • Go to Free Mobotix iPad, iPhone & iPod Touch App page.

  • More camera functionality requiring reduced home LAN complexity and cost.
    Mobotix's unique decentralised IP camera philosophy and its processing and data-efficient MxPEG codec require less LAN (Local Area Network) bandwidth than other megapixel IP cameras, making them ideal for use on home LANs, and more suitable for use on home WiFi wireless networks. Unlike other IP cameras, Mobotix IP cameras include a high speed computer and advanced software that supports sophisticated image analysis, recording, event detection and response, and home automation integration:

    In-camera video and lip-sync audio recording with live video/audio RAM buffering. Optional local recording directly to flash memory within each Mobotix IP camera, and/or over network.

    Two-way communication to Mobotix MxDisplays, Mobotix MxSoftPanel (MxDisplay+ simulation) free software, PCs, Internet Tablets, Smart Phones, or SIP phones.

    Two-way IP communication for home automation integration with IP-supporting devices like the Wiser home controller, C-Bus 6.4" touch screen, or the integriti security panel - and auxiliary inputs and outputs for home automation integration using CamIO and ExtIO Mobotix modules. For example, Clever Home may set-up:
    - Your Mobotix IP camera to automatically record during security entry and alarm events.
    - Your home automation wall switches, touch screens and Wiser mobile device apps to manually trigger recording anytime you require.
    - Sounds detected by your inbuilt Mobotix IP camera microphone above a variable preset level to trigger recording, and automatically turn on nearby C-Bus lighting.

    Optional Mobotix Mx2wire modules allow you to use existing non-communications cable if that would be more cost-effective than installing Cat5/6/7 cable to your mobotix devices.

    The unique Mobotix MxPEG codec is specifically designed for surveillance video recording for:
    - Encoding/decoding video more efficiently than MPEG, using less computing power.
    - Experiencing a low latency of less than 150 ms.
    - Enjoying good still image quality that is set by JPEG quality setting only, with no motion estimation.
    - Delivering multiple streams with different frame rates simultaneously, e.g., for live viewing and for storing.
    - Lip-synchronous audio interleaved with the video frames when implemented in Mobotix IP cameras.

  • Mobotix MxPeg compression versus H264 for blur-free frames.

  • Decentralised VMS (Video Management Software) in each Mobotix IP camera to directly record video and audio to LAN storage devices (or to flash memory within each camera), and the alarm and data management information required to allow instant search and playback, via a free web or software based viewing client like MxManagementCenter (MxMC) professional video management software. In other words, if you install Mobotix home automation IP cameras, then you don't need to purchase, run, or depend upon a DVR (Digital Video Recorder), or a dedicated PC-based system with VMS for recording.

  • Free Mobotix MxManagementCenter software for Mobotix home automation IP cameras

  • The Award-Winning MxActivitySensor feature provides a major leap forward in the ease and reliability by which moving people and objects may be detected, and even selectively responds to movement in different directions. In practice, MxActivitySensor allows Mobotix surveillance cameras to also function as visual home automation sensors in demanding outdoor or indoor applications. The moving object should within view for at least 2 seconds, and the recording frame rate should be at least 6 per second. For more details read the MxActivitySensor compact guide. The Mobotix MxActivitySensor won Benchmark Magazine's prestigious Innovation Award for Best Perimeter Security System 2014.

    From 2017 onwards all x14/24 and x15/25 Mobotix cameras and doorstations models can support the new MxActivitySensor 2.0, via a firmware upgrade released free of charge from Mobotix. In addition to detecting motion in certain directions and predefined areas, MxActivitySensor 2.0 also differentiates objects depending on their size and perspective, helping further reduce false alarms caused by birds and small animals. Only non-hemispheric Mobotix camera sensors can take advantage of the perspective compensation support in MxActivitySensor 2.0, and this perspective compensation works best if the camera is installed in a slightly elevated position and tilted downward by about 10-15°.

  • Non-optical movement detection may also be supported using the Mobotix MultiSense PIR (and illumination, temperature, and sound) detector, or the Mobotix Proximity Box with its concealed microwave radar sensor. Either of these non-optical movement sensors may detect nearby movement in complete darkness, inside or outside. The Mobotix MultiSense PIR best detects warm bodies or vehicles moving across its field of view, while the Mobotix Proximity Box detects solid objects (of any temperature) moving directly towards or away from it. Either or both of these optional Mobotix sensor modules may connect to any current model Mobotix home automation IP camera or Mobotix door station (with current firmware) via a local MxBus 2 wire connection up to 50m in length, and trigger recording in one or more Mobotix cameras or door stations in your automated home, as well as other home automation responses (e.g. turning lights on, or sounding an alert).

  • Professional security and privacy.
    Mobotix home automation IP cameras incorporate Professional Cyber Protection Technologies that include encryption, certificates, user defined access rights and anti-bot settings. When properly programmed by your Clever Home Engineer your Mobotix home automation camera system may not only be extremely reliable, it may also provide outstanding protection in terms of network security. Another high security and anti-theft feature of Mobotix home automation cameras is that their user passwords cannot be reset to default on the cameras themselves without them being sent back to Mobotix in Germany. If a Mobotix home automation camera that you purchased from Clever Home is stolen, we may report and register it as stolen to Mobotix, and then when any unauthorized party sends it to Mobotix to reset the password, Mobotix may recognize this camera as stolen and return it to its rightful owner.

  • A better more cost-effective home surveillance system.
    When you consider the costs and benefits of Mobotix IP cameras in the context of a complete surveillance system (including LAN hardware, storage, search and playback of surveillance audio/video) in a professionally automated home, Mobotix IP cameras can provide a more cost-effective, reliable, enduring, and aesthetic home surveillance solution.

  • Available in Australia from Clever Home.
    Yes, you may now buy your Mobotix high resolution IP cameras from Clever Home with Australian warranty support. As with other high quality home automation components, you may achieve greater value by asking a Clever Home Engineer to professionally design and program your Mobotix IP cameras - either as a superb quality standalone home surveillance system, or as an integrated part of a larger home automation solution.
