Mobotix S15/S16 dual FlexMount home automation
Discreet, flexible, hemispheric . . .
The Mobotix S15/S16 is a automated home owner's dream IP camera.
With extensive home automation integration capability
when designed and programmed by you Clever Home Engineer, the Mobotix S15 flexmount IP camera is ideal for automated homes.
Weatherproof for outdoor or indoor use, without requiring any additional heating or cooling.
Choose white or black mini dome IP camera sensors and a range of S15 camera sensor and
speaker mounts to enhance any home décor.
Looking great in your automated home is just the beginning:
Superior image quality. Mobotix IP cameras are engineered to
provide superior quality video, and clearer sharper still images. New
6MP Moonlight Technology (or older 5MP) colour image sensors in the Mobotix S15 home automation camera support new higher levels of image quality, digital
zoom capability, and low light sensitivity. For even greater low-light sensitivity and IR illuminated
applications 6MP (or older 5MP) B&W sensors are available. You may even use the Mobotix S15 Thermal camera sensor to view in total darkness.
Choose one or two image sensors in each single Mobotix S15 IP camera, each sensor having many lense options including
The S15 also features new improved image pre-processing to deliver frame rates of up to 30 per second
while consuming very little power and requiring no additional cooling.
home automation surveillance has never looked so good.
Class-leading 6MP Moonlight Technology image quality and low light sensitivity.
Mobotix 6MP Moonlight Technology combines large high quality image sensors, premium quality lenses,
sensor processing and unique MxPEG image compression to deliver class-leading detail in individual video frames.
This allows the Mobotix S15 home automation camera to better identify moving people or vehicles
at low light levels.
See, record, and detect movement, in complete darkness, shadows, smoke, or behind bushes,
using a Mobotix S15 Thermal camera sensor.
The single most important specification for a thermal camera sensor
is its ability to capture the smallest differences in temperature, and to produce an image that displays these
small temperature differences in different colours. The sensitivity of a thermal sensor is expressed as the NETD
(Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference) and measured in milli Kelvin degrees. Mobotix Thermal camera sensors have
an NETD of 50 mK, placing them in the top range of thermal cameras currently available for general use.
Single compact camera S15 version.
The most compact of the three S15 configurations is
the Mobotix S15M (Mono) home automation IP camera version in which the mini dome
camera sensor is mounted within its base module.
This compact S15M may be mounted on cladding up to 6.4mm thick, with only the small dome camera sensor visible,
and the base module aethetically out of view and securely hidden. With the S15M mini dome camera sensor having
a panoramic 360 degree fish-eye lens and 6 Megapixel resolution, a single Mobotix S15M home automation IP camera may replace multiple IP cameras from other companies,
and provide a unified view without any blinds spots. A new AudioMount
option makes it easy to aesthetically mount a Mobotix S15M and a speaker and call button behind a custom stainless
steel plate without any visible screws, and support high-end video intercom functionality
similar to that of the Mobotix T25
Single FlexMount camera S15 version.
Alternatively, the Mobotix S15D home automation IP camera is also
available with the dome camera sensor separated from the base module by a flexible 3m cable.
This configuration allows the tiny S15 camera sensor to be installed in locations
where little space is available, or behind panels up to 3m thick by adding optional 40mm
panel extensions. A 15 degree angle wedge is also supplied to make better use of
the S15 camera's panoramic field of view when mounted above eye height on a wall inside or
outside your automated home. A new down-light style HaloMount option is also available (see below). The compact
Mobotix S15D home automation IP camera mini dome sensor modules may also be mounted directly
on a custom stainless steel plate with a door bell call button (and the S15 core securely located up to 3m away) to provide
high-end video intercom door station functionality similar to that of the
Dual FlexMount cameras S15 version.
The Mobotix S15D (dual) home automation IP camera version supports TWO 6MP Moonlight Technology mini dome camera sensors
up to 3m from one shared securely-hidden base module (or two older 5MP sensors up to 2m away), allowing you to:
a) Cover two adjacent rooms or areas, or
b) Cover two perspectives, or
c) Enjoy optimised day and night surveillance with clever automated coordination between the two.
Many mounting options, inside or outside your automated home.
The Mobotix S15 home automation camera mini dome sensors and the base station are both weatherproof
IP65 rated, so you may monitor outside areas or moist inside rooms using them. The
Mobotix S15 camera sensor modules may be mounted directly
into your home's walls or ceilings, with or without a 15 degree fixed angle wedge kit, for
a highly unobtrusive installation in modern automated homes.
Alternatively, you may also mount individual S15 camera sensors in the attractive and adjustable in-ceiling Mobotix HaloMount, or the versatile on-wall/ceiling Mobotix PTMount. To co-locate two Mobotix S15 camera sensors in the same on-ceiling surface mounting enclosure,
you may use the Mobotix SurroundMount for two opposing S15 sensors, or the Mobotix DualMount for two different types of S15 sensors facing in the same direction.
More details are below.
High quality metal Mobotix HaloMounts (above) allow down-light sized in-wall or in-ceiling installation of your
Mobotix S15D home automation cameras inside your home, and allow you to tilt
your S15 camera sensor modules by up to 20 degrees. Mobotix HaloMounts are available in white,
black, chrome, matt chrome, and brushed nickel finishes to match any home décor.
Cover whatever direction and angle you like using the surface-mounting on-ceiling/wall
PTMount option (above). The Mobotix PTMount compactly encloses a single Mobotix S15 camera sensor, and provides three degrees of movement for highly flexible camera adjustment:
360 degrees about the PTMount base, 360 degrees rotation of the S15 5MP or 6MP sensor itself (for horizon adjustment when
mounting on angled walls or ceilings), and tilt adjustment from -10 to +90 degrees. The Mobotix PTMount also conceals all cabling, and provides a tough compact
IP66 rated enclosure suitable for -30 to +60 degree C temperature ranges. A weatherproof (IP65) PTMount-Thermal
with pre-installed Mobotix L43, L65 or L135 thermal sensor module is also available.
Cover your automated home's long narrow hallways or external pathways and lanes without blind spots using the
Mobotix SurroundMount option (above). The SurroundMount angles both of your Mobotix S15 home automation camera sensors downwards by 25 degrees, conceals all cabling, and provides a tough
compact IP65 rated surface mounted enclosure suitable for -30 to +60 degree C temperature ranges.
For optimal surveillance of inside or outside your home day and night, consider the Mobotix DualMount option (above). The DualMount provides compact surface mounted parallel alignment of
a day and a night Mobotix S15 camera sensor, both angled down 25 degrees, conceals all cabling, and provides
a tough compact IP65 rated enclosure suitable for -30 to +60 degree C temperature ranges.
Recorded lip-sync audio.
Each Mobotix S15 home automation camera mini dome sensor includes a sensitive
microphone and supports the ability to record lip-sync audio along with up to 6MP video. Alternatively, if you need to
ensure that audio is never recorded for privacy reasons, the S15 sensor's microphone may be temporarily or permanently disabled.
Down-light sized speakers.
High quality metal Mobotix SpeakerMounts allow downlight-sized in-wall or in-ceiling installation of speakers designed
specifically to be driven directly by your Mobotix S15 IP cameras inside your home, and allow you to tilt your S15
speaker by up to 20 degrees. Available in white or matt chrome. If you need a sealed speaker
instead for use outside or in smokey or humid environments, consider the Krix Holographix
downlight sized speaker.
Weatherproof Mobotix S15 home automation cameras are extremely tough,
thanks to the rugged low-visibility mini dome camera modules, hidden base module and connectors, high build
quality, and the absence of any moving parts. These home automation surveillance cameras typically
remain fully operational after even strong vibration.
PIR (Passive Infra-Red) movement detection.
The Mobotix MultiSense PIR (and illumination, temperature, and sound) detector module can detect
movement in complete darkness, activate lights (or other responses) via your integrated Clever Home automation system, and trigger recording
in one or more Mobotix cameras or
Mobotix door stations.
The Mobotix MultiSense module is available in indoor or outdoor weatherproof versions, and
with the same form factor as a Mobotix S15 camera sensor may be mounted in any of the S15 mounts and housings.
It is simply connected to the nearest Mobotix Camera or door station via a local MxBus 2 wire connection of up to 50m in length.
Free Award-Winning MxActivitySensor optical movement detection. MobotixMxActivitySensor is a unique directionally-selective movement detection
capability that is included and implemented at no extra cost in the firmware of each individual
Mobotix S15 home automation IP camera.
MxActivitySensor is so dramatically improved from
the basic movement detection used by other IP cameras that it may be used in many situations to
more reliably detect and trigger security, surveillance,
and home automation responses.
The Mobotix MxActivitySensor won Benchmark Magazine's
prestigious Innovation Award for Best Perimeter Security System 2014. From 2017 the
new MxActivitySensor 2.0 was released for free. In addition to detecting motion in certain directions
and predefined areas, MxActivitySensor 2.0 may also differentiate objects depending on their size and perspective
in hemispheric S15 cameras mounted in a slightly elevated position and angled down 15°,
helping further reduce false alarms caused by birds and small animals.
Exceptional low light sensitivity from your Mobotix S15 home automation IP cameras is made possible using advanced
MxLEO hardware processing. MxLEO is a new exposure and image optimization program exclusively developed
by MOBOTIX for their colour and B/W home automation camera sensors.
Shocks to the Mobotix S15 home automation camera dome camera sensors, sounds above a programmable level, sophisticated
image movement analysis including MxActivitySensor performed
within the S15 camera base module, or home automation integrated inputs, may trigger:
a) Notification to you over the Internet directly from the camera.
b) Audio and video recording of offenders.
c) Notifications to a third party security system
that notifies you and/or a security monitoring center.
d) Local visual indication via programmable LED indicators on the tiny S15 camera dome sensors.
e) Local audio announcements or sounds via a surprisingly loud and clear external speaker driven
directly by the S15 base module.
The Mobotix edge.
On top of all of the above benefits, you also get to enjoy the other unique and important benefits that make
Mobotix the No. 1 manufacturer of 6MP IP cameras in the world.
Mx6 Series Versions.
The Mobotix S15 home automation cameras are now also available in new Mx6 Series versions:
the Mobotix S16 dual Flexmount camera, and the
Mobotix S26 single Flexmount camera. These Mx6 Series home automation cameras
look the same from the outside, but use a more powerful dual-core CPU to deliver up to twice as many
images per second at the same resolution, or to support additional in-camera software for applications
like license plate capture, for example. These new Mx6 Series Mobotix home automation cameras also
support an integrated H.264 encoder and follow the ONVIF standard for video transmission and camera
integration, which may simplify integration of Mobotix home automation cameras in some larger systems
– though they also still support the unique Mobotix MxPEG codec which remains a superior compression
format for storing clearer individual frames for surveillance applications. An MxBus interface is not
currently supported on the Mx6 Series cameras, but is expected to be supported on future hardware versions.
