Overview of the Mobotix S15 FlexMount Thermal

Flexible and robust Mobotix S15 FlexMount dual thermal imaging network camera comprising a core unit and 2 separate sensor-lens modules connected via a 2m cable.

Other features include video motion detection, MxActivitySensor, multiple codec, MicroSD card recording, two-way audio capability and PoE. Included MxEasy and MxControlCentre management software in addition to mobile access via the Mobotix iOS app.

Comprising a weatherproof core unit and up to two separate IP65-rated and highly sensitive thermal sensor lens modules connected via a water-proof 2m cable, the S15 thermal network camera from Mobotix delivers advanced and discreet outdoor or indoor security surveillance, measuring the thermal radiation of objects to enable monitoring in complete darkness and the detection of moving objects in shadows, smoke or behind vegetation during daylight. 50 mK thermal imaging delivers high-level detection from a distance, whilst also offering CCTV ideal for private or sensitive applications as thermal images do not provide recognition for license plates or individuals.

The S15 supports either one or two thermal sensors connected via a 2 metre cable (cable not included – please select from above), or a thermal/6 megapixel colour sensor combination, providing high resolution full colour capture during daylight and reliable motion detection at night. The two separate sensors enable the camera to secure two surveillance areas simultaneously, removing the need for investment in multiple cameras. 45°, 25° and 17° view Mobotix thermal sensor-lenses are available, providing a choice of viewing angle to best suit an application (please select choice from the drop-down above).

Featuring Mobotix’s high-level MxActivitySensor intelligent video motion detection, the S15 is able to detect changes in position to alert users of activity. False alarms are reduced because the technology does not trigger alerts from movement on the spot such as trees swaying or rain. Supporting two-way audio, the Mobotix S15 can capture audio when a microphone is connected (not included), and facilitate verbal conversation when connected to a speaker (not included). Power is supplied to the camera by the Ethernet cable (PoE), making installation easier and more cost-effective. The S15 includes a 4GB MicroSD card for local storage, MicroSD cards with higher capacity can be selected from the drop down menu above. Images can be compressed using MxPEG, M-JPEG, JPEG and H.264 (SIP video only), enabling flexible management of storage and bandwidth and delivering video suitable for a wide variety of applications.

Using the Mobotix S15 thermal camera is easy with the free to download MxControlCentre video management software ideal for large IP video installations, or the free of charge MxEasy software, which is designed for systems with up to 16 cameras. The software provides user-friendly system management, requiring a basic PC to run and supporting Mac and Linux operating systems. Users can access images using mobiles through the Mobotix iOS app, providing an ideal remote monitoring solution for travelling business owners and managers.

Please note: this camera does not come with a power supply, please select from the drop down menu above if required. The 2 metre sensor cable pictured is also not included, please select from the drop down menu above when ordering.

6 megapixel sensor-lens version: Mobotix S15.

Key features & benefits

  • Thermal imaging capability enables surveillance in complete darkness and in areas of vegetation, ideal for critical applications
  • Flexible design allows up to two discreet sensors to be located up to 2m away from the camera main unit, monitoring different areas simultaneously and covertly
  • 3 lens combinations can be configured to best suit an application and environment, either a single thermal lens, two thermal lenses or a thermal and 6 megapixel lens combination (please select choice from above drop down menu)
  • Sensor-lenses are available in 3 viewing angles to best capture different scenes (please select choice from above drop down menu)
  • Can be used indoors or outdoors (IP65-rated), providing robust and flexible CCTV
  • Ideal for applications that require privacy as thermal imaging does not enable identification of people or license plates
  • Thermal imaging enables activity to be captured from long distances
  • Low energy consumption
  • MxActivitySensor intelligently ‘learns’ a scene, not raising alerts for on the spot motion such as vegetation movement and therefore reducing false alarms
  • Flexible storage and bandwidth management using up to 4 compression methods: MxPEG, M-JPEG, JPEG and H.264 (SIP only)
  • Video processing and recording take place on-board the camera, reducing bandwidth use and eliminating the need for a high-spec recording server (4GB MicroSD card included)
  • Direct connection for external microphone and speaker, enabling two-way audio capability
  • Power is fed through the Ethernet cable using PoE, enabling quicker and easier installation
  • Compatible with Mac and Linux
  • Free of charge MxControlCentre and MxEasy management software, requiring only a basic PC and with free software updates
  • Accessible remotely using the Mobotix mobile app available for iOS devices

Compatible recording platforms

Typical applications

The Mobotix S15 thermal network camera is ideal for demanding indoor or outdoor applications that require high-level, 24-hour and discreet security surveillance of critical areas such as entrances, exits and restricted areas; or in environments that are subject to shadows, smoky conditions and/or dense vegetation. Typical examples include military applications, prisons, nuclear facilities and government buildings. The S15D-SEC Thermal is also ideal for applications that require the advanced covert security monitoring of two different areas simultaneously, or where full colour images are required during the day, and high-level, reliable motion detection at night. The thermal sensors are ideal for applications where private or sensitive areas are being recorded, as thermal imaging prevents facial or license plate recognition.
