Overview of the Mobotix M26

The Mobotix M26 is a robust and adaptable IP camera with 6MP Moonlight technology, providing dependable surveillance of indoor or outdoor locations. Available in both day and night versions with a wide selection of lenses to choose from, the unit's casing is also IP66 and IK10-rated for durable outdoor use in harsh weather conditions. Additionally, this model includes storage at the edge, free Mobotix video management software and mobile support.

With its powerful CPU, this camera can deliver high-quality images with much-improved frame rates when compared to its M25 predecessor – capturing 6 megapixel images at up to 12 frames per second (fps), Full-HD at up to 34 fps or HD 720p at 42 fps. In addition to MxPEG and MJPEG compression formats, this camera supports H.264, allowing users to select the right codec to help manage bandwidth requirements efficiently. Mobotix's Moonlight technology can also be found on this camera, ensuring that highly detailed images with reduced motion blur can be captured in low-light scenes.

Lens Options

Mobotix M26 lens options details

A wide range of lenses are available, including a fisheye lens that provides panoramic overviews, through to an 8° super-tele lens which is ideal for long-distance surveillance applications.

When ordering, select the day or night lens that best suits your requirements. For more details on the lenses available for this model, click the Mobotix lens table to the right.

Key Features & Benefits

  • Multiple areas within the field of view can be cropped and viewed simultaneously using multicast-stream via RTSP
  • Decentralised design for a flexible, cost-effective and easily scalable system
  • Low maintenance – no heaters, fans or other moving parts
  • PoE support delivers power and network connectivity over a single cable

Decentralised System

Pioneered by Mobotix, the decentralised design means that each camera is an independent surveillance system, able to process and store video onboard the camera using built-in software and edge storage. No central data storage or additional recording software is needed – resulting in reduced bandwidth usage. This flexible approach means that a system can be easily expanded with the purchase of new cameras, with no need for other additional investments.

Built-in Software

  • Advanced image processing
  • MxActivitySensor
  • MxAnalytics

Built-in Storage

  • MicroSD card (64GB max)
  • (4GB card included)

With onboard image processing, high-quality footage is captured using optimum exposure settings - even in scenes with challenging lighting conditions. The unit’s processor can also digitally corrects hemispheric images if using a fisheye lens, reducing the size of the image. This also lowers bandwidth usage and allows several panoramic cameras to be displayed on a PC or mobile device at the same time.

Mobotix’s MxActivitySensor reduces false alarms by intelligently distinguishing between movements of interest and extraneous factors such as shadows – providing accurate video motion detection.

MxAnalytics collects statistical behaviour data on people and objects through heat maps, identifying highly frequented areas and revealing how many people or objects pass through certain locations – especially useful in retail environments.

Mobotix MxManagementCenter is a free video management software that is supported by all Mobotix cameras, featuring no licence fees or update costs. Footage can also be accessed remotely using the Mobotix iOS app on mobile devices.

Robust Design and Low Running Cost

The M26 features no moving parts such as fans or heaters, resulting in less required maintenance, and the robust fibreglass housing (IP66 and IK10-rated) offers long-life use even in extreme weather conditions. Mobotix cameras are also energy efficient, typically requiring less than 5 watts to operate which makes them economical to run.

In addition, all Mobotix cameras can use an external NAS for automatic backup and the built-in SD card acts as a failover buffer in case the connection to the NAS is lost.

Compatible Recording Platforms

Typical Applications

With 6-megapixel resolution and robust housing, the M26 Allround network camera is an ideal choice for users who require outdoor surveillance in demanding locations. Typical examples include university campuses, train station terminals and car parks.
