30 frames per second!
Everything integrated!
INTRODUCTION
The M22M cameras are powerful yet compact MOBOTIX network cameras, that are capable of creating high-resolution live
video streams with high image rates. When showing VGA video
(640x480), the camera can deliver up to 30 fps. Even Megapixel
video (1280x960) will still generate up to 10 fps. The camera transmits lip-synchronous audio, both in the browser (ActiveX plug-in) and when using
McControlCenter.
Similar to previous MOBOTIX cameras, M22M cameras are available as SECURE,
IT, WEB and BASIC models, with WEB and BASIC models just missing the microphone.
The M22M can be fitted with one of the five M14 high-performance lenses or with CS
mount lenses (model M22M-Sec-CSVario).
Like all other MOBOTIX cameras, M22M models are more than "just a camera"; the
integrated software features include a multitude of functions, such as video motion
detection, long-term recording, alarm messaging and video IP telephony. Unlike
in camera systems from other manufacturers, buying and installing additional software on the computer is thus unnecessary. Instead of using a web browser, you can also
download the free MxControlCenter for Windows from www.mobotix.com, which allows
displaying multiple cameras on one monitor.
Moreover, MxControlCenter can also process incoming alarms from the camera and allows for
comfortably searching and evaluating the alarm
video clips (including audio).
Because of the low power consumption of only
3 Watts, the MOBOTIX M22M cameras feature the
highest operating temperature range available
from -30 to +60°C (-20 to +140°F). Since
MOBOTIX cameras neither fog up nor require heating, power can be supplied via the network
cabling using standard PoE products. M22M models are absolutely dust-proof and
resistant against water jets (IP65). All models come with a wall mount that covers
wall outlets and conceals the cabling.
Using the MX Connector with USB socket, you can
directly connect the MOBOTIX Cam-IO expansion
box, which simplifies installing the camera and expands on these possibilities. All external devices,
sensors and the Ethernet cabling are connected directly to the expansion box. Likewise, the MOBOTIX
Cam-IO installation box connects directly to the
mains and supplies power to the camera, without
requiring any other type of power supply.

1.3
MOBOTIX M22M Concept
High-resolution live video with up to 30 frames/s at 640x480
The second generation of cameras from MOBOTIX delivers smooth live video display
in VGA format with synchronous live audio, yet it keeps the network load to a minimum (approx. 2 Mbps)*. Live video display now matches the performance of analog
video systems. When recording, MOBOTIX systems easily outperform analog systems, since MOBOTIX cameras store the high live image resolution and frame rate
without compromising image quality. MOBOTIX technology thus allows simultaneous recording of video from 30 cameras in continuous recording mode on one
standard PC at 30 fps each, including audio.
Low bandwidth requirements
MOBOTIX' patent pending MxPEG streaming format allows fast live video with audio*
at extremely low network loads (1 to 2 Mbps). Since the MOBOTIX camera itself
detects movements in the image (and not the computer), video is only transmitted if
movements occur, and when the video and audio data are being stored.
Voice over IP*
Moreover, MxPEG provides for lip-synchronized audio and two-way communication between the camera and your computer. Room surveillance with audio is possible
using Internet Explorer or MxControlCenter. Alarm notification on your mobile or via
Internet telephony is just as easy as event-controlled voice messages directly from
the camera.
IP Telephony!
IP telephony and video SIP (with accessories)*
All telephone features can be used via Internet telephony thanks to the integrated SIP
client. The SIP client allows remote-controlling the camera using the touchtone keys
and also makes the alarm calls of the camera. Video SIP allows establishing audio/
video connections to the camera using Windows Messenger or similar applications
(e.g. CounterPath X-Lite, Eyebeam).

do not have a microphone

M22M Camera Manual Part 1
11/76
Long-term storage included
MOBOTIX cameras (IT and Secure models) feature an integrated long-term storage
system for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X computers. Every camera manages its own
ring buffer storage space on the shared folder. Thanks to this decentralized technology, 30 live cameras can store images on a regular Pentium 4-class computer with
30 fps each, including audio (depending on the operating system).
Event storage on the integrated CF card (optional)
For most applications, the MOBOTIX-installed CF card provides more than enough
storage space, since this flash card (2 GB and higher) stores the audio/video data
permanently, even after power failures. If long-term storage on a file server has
been set up, the CF card adds yet another layer of security against loss of data, as
the flash card can easily bridge longer network outages.
CF cards will be supported in a future software
update
30 live cameras using MxControlCenter
Instead of using a web browser, you can also download the free
MxControlCenter for Windows from www.mobotix.com,
which allows displaying up to 30 MOBOTIX cameras on one
monitor (Linux and Mac OS X versions are currently being developed). In addition, MxControlCenter can process incoming
alarms from the cameras and allows comfortably searching and
evaluating the alarm video clips (including audio*). The integrated
Layout Editor of MxControlCenter provides for quickly creating
floor plans by simply dragging/dropping the cameras onto a background image.
Load a floor plan as background image, drag&drop the cameras; done.
Download MxControlCenter free of charge from
www.mobotix.com
Event and time-controlled
Just like event-controlled recording upon detecting movements in the image, the camera can also record when the volume picked up by the microphone exceeds a set
trigger value (audio-capable models only*). Using scheduled recording that takes
into consideration vacation times and holidays, time tasks can start or stop video recording, uploading of images to a web site or sending of e-mails with video/audio*
clips.
Remote alerting
In case of an alarm, MOBOTIX cameras automatically pop up windows or activate
other functions at a remote security control center. The cameras can use network/wireless, GSM/GPRS/UMTS (3G) or Internet connections for this purpose (a GSM/GPRS/
UMTS modem can be connected to the serial interface of MOBOTIX M12/D12 models).
Day & Night
The Night versions of the M22M-IT/Secure models deliver crisp and clear images of
moving objects even at night since they use a special black and white image sensor.
Depending on the lighting conditions, you can use infrared light to enhance the
lighting, since the B/W sensor system is IR-sensitive (in contrast to the human eye).

M22M Camera Manual Part 1
Integrated Power over Ethernet
No heating required PoE is no problem even in
the wintertime!
Power is supplied as Power-over Ethernet via the network cabling using the MOBOTIX power supply (in combination with the Network Power
Adapter), a MOBOTIX Network Power Rack (8 to 20 cameras) or a Network Power Box (4 cameras), or by using a PoE-compatible switch (according to PoE
standard IEEE 802.3af).
Since the camera's plastic housing insulates well and is anti-fogging, no additional
heating or fans are necessary. This is why MOBOTIX, unlike other manufacturer's
cameras, have low power requirements (3 Watts) and PoE can be used every day of
the year indoors as well as outdoors for supplying power.
Weatherproof
MOBOTIX M22M cameras are certified according to IP65 (absolutely dustproof and
resistant against water jets) and are designed for outdoor as well as indoor usage. As
the cameras do not have any moving parts, they are extremely robust and resistant
against heat or cold (-30 to +60°C; -20 to +140°F).
Easy Installation Using the Cam-IO Installation Box
The Cam-IO Installation box greatly facilitates setting up a security system as this
module carries all pins of the MX Interface Connector and simplifies connecting
external devices and sensors. Besides supplying power to the camera, the installation box can power lamps with up to
500 W/230 V (max. 4 A) and has heavyduty connectors for the remaining pins of
the D Sub 15 HD socket (e.g. Line In/Out or
signal inputs of the camera).
Logos, Animated or Freestyle
The logo generator of MOBOTIX cameras allows scheduled display of different banners and graphics (or files loaded from any URL) into the current camera images.
MOBOTIX cameras are the only network IP cameras supporting animated and transparent graphics.

Lenses for the MOBOTIX M22M
MOBOTIX currently offers five different lenses: from Super Wide-Angle L22 with
22 mm focal length up to the tele lens L135 with 135 mm focal length (equiv. to
35 mm camera). Since MOBOTIX cameras are backlight-proof, they do not require a
mechanical auto iris. Without the iris as a mechanical component, all MOBOTIX glass
lenses are extremely robust and maintenance-free. You can choose between the following lenses for the MOBOTIX M22M (M14 thread):

Note
The focal lengths of MOBOTIX lenses do not reflect the actual focal
length of the lenses, but the focal length (Lxx mm) converted to 35 mm
camera format. For example, the MOBOTIX Super Wide-Angle lens has
an actual focal length of 4 mm. This would be the equivalent of 22 mm
on a 35 mm camera. This lens is thus called L22.
Since the image sensors in digital cameras have different sizes, converting to 35 mm camera as a known format provides for better comparing the image formats and the fields of vision of the different lenses. Another benefit is that you can easily set a 35 mm camera (analog or digital) to the same focal length (Lxx) to obtain the same field of
vision. This approach greatly facilitates lens selection.

CAUTION: Only use the supplied connection cables and always
mount the proper plugs for the cables. The camera must never be
mounted without properly installed cables and weather protection
plugs!
1.6.2 Password for the Administration Menu
The administration area of the camera (Admin Menu button) is protected by a user
name and password:
• User name is admin
• Password is meinsm
Enter the user name and password exactly as shown above. Note that both entries
are case-sensitive.
When accessing the administration menu for the first time, the Quick Installation
wizard will help you set the most important parameters that are relevant for your
requirements. For security reasons, it is highly recommended to change the
adminstrator password after the camera has been configured properly.
The microphone can be
irreversibly deactivated!
CAUTION: Make sure that you store information on user names
and passwords in a secure place. If you loose the administrator
password and cannot access the Admin menu, the password can
only be reset at the factory. This service is subject to a service
charge!
1.6.3 Irreversibly Deactivating the Microphone
Deactivating a camera's microphone may become necessary in order to protect
the privacy of people at a workplace or for other reasons. You can permanently

1.6.4 Starting the Camera Using the Factory IP Address
If the camera's IP address is not known, you can start the camera with its factory IP
address. Section 3.6, Starting the Camera Using the Factory IP Address, describes
this procedure in more detail.
The configuration can also
be reset partially
1.6.5 Resetting the Camera to Factory Defaults
All settings of the MOBOTIX camera can be reset to the factory default settings. This
makes sense if you have, for example, obtained a camera without any information
or you would like to reset all settings after testing the camera. In order to perform
this procedure, you need to have access to the administration area of the camera
(admins group). Open Admin Menu > Reset … to reset the camera to factory defaults.
Note: All defined users will be deleted and the admin password will be reset to
the factory default when you reset the camera using Admin Menu > Reset …
Proceed according to section 3.6, Starting the Camera Using the Factory IP
Address, if you would like to maintain existing users.
If the dotted rectangle in
the live image is visible,
the camera is armed
1.6.6 Activating Event Control for Security Applications
In its default configuration, the camera's event control and video motion detection
features are not enabled. In order to activate event control as a whole, open
Setup Menu > General Event Settings and activate the Arming switch or click on
the Arm & Record softbutton of the browser interface. The video motion detection
window is visible again (dotted frame in the center of the live image) and the camera stores images as soon as the video motion window detects movements.
1.6.7 Deactivating Text and Logo Options
As the camera arming has been deactivated in its default configuration (see preceding section), the MOBOTIX camera only displays the Text WWW.MOBOTIX.COM,
the time stamp and the MOBOTIX logo at the top of the image. Once the camera
arming has been activated (see section 1.6.6), the text at the bottom of the live
image (event, action and messaging symbols) will also appear.
You can deactivate the status text at the bottom and the text at the top left corner of
the live image by setting Text Display in the Setup Menu > Text & Display Settings
dialog to Off. Setting Text Display to Date & Time will only display the time stamp in
the live image.
In order to hide the logo in the live image, open Admin Menu > Logo Profiles and
set Logo Display to Disable.

M22M Camera Manual Part 1
1.6.8 Deactivating the Automatic Daily Reboot of the Camera
Deactivating the camera
reboot
In its default configuration, the MOBOTIX camera automatically reboots every
morning at 3:36 am. The reason for this is that external influences (e.g. radiation in
high locations) can lead to camera malfunctions. The automatic reboot will refresh
the camera's memory and will ensure proper operation without requiring any interaction on the part of the user.
Open Admin Menu > Time Tasks and deactivate or delete the Reboot camera
task. This will prevent the camera from rebooting automatically.
1.6.9 Using Internet Browsers
Current Internet browsers (Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox, Safari, Konqueror, Opera, …) with enabled JavaScript can show the camera's live images
with their standard settings. Text-based browsers (e.g. lynx) cannot display the
user interface and are not suitable for operating the camera.
Section 4.8, Browser Settings, in the Software Manual contains more information on
browser compatibility. For additional information on troubleshooting the camera,
see chapter 12, Troubleshooting, in the Software Manual.
1.6.10 Cleaning Instructions – Cleaning the Lens
If the lens is dirty from the installation process, clean the lens using a lint-free cotton cloth.
1.6.11 Safety Notes for Operating MOBOTIX Cameras
Electrical surges can be induced by other electrical appliances, improper wiring,
but also from the outside (e.g. lightning strikes to phone or power lines).
MOBOTIX cameras are protected against small electrical surges by numerous
measures. These measures, however, cannot prevent the camera from being
damaged when stronger electrical surges occur.
Special care should be taken when installing the camera outside of buildings for
protection against lightning, since this also protects the building and the whole
network infrastructure.
MOBOTIX recommends having MOBOTIX cameras installed only by specialists accustomed to installing network devices and having proper respect for the pertinent
regulations regarding lightning protection and fire prevention as well as the current technology for preventing damages from electrical surges.
Section 2.10, Wiring, Fire Prevention, Lightning and Surge Protection, contains more
information on these topics.

MOUNTING THE CAMERA
2.1
Preparing the Installation
2.1.1 Network Connection and Power Supply, UPS
Power over Ethernet (MxPoE)
Power is supplied to all M22M models via the network cabling (MxPoE, Powerover-Ethernet). For smaller installations, the universal power supply (MX-SNT-E/U/
GB/J/AUS01-30-RJ) with the MOBOTIX Network Power Adapter MX-NPA-3-RJ is
sufficient. Larger installations would benefit from one or more MOBOTIX Network
Power Racks/Boxes that are available for supplying power to 4, 8 or 20 cameras
(MX-NPR-4, -8 or -20).
See section 2.11, Camera Accessories, for more information on these and other
items or open shop.mobotix.com (Products > Accessories section).
MX-NPA-3-RJ: Easy installation for smaller systems
MX-NPR-4: For mounting
in wiring cupboards; includes DIN rail clip
MX-NPR-8/20: 19" rack
mount (2 rack units)
Network Power Adapter
MX-NPA-3-RJ
Netpower Box
MX-NPR-4

MX-NPR-20
Advantages of MOBOTIX PoE Products
•
•
•
Zero maintenance and reliable without fans.
Higher reliability of the system as a whole, since standard
switches without PoE can be used (lower risk of failure).
Easy installation on DIN rails using supplied adapter (MX-NPR-4)
or in 19" racks (MX-NPR-8/20).
Note
PoE components without
fans increase overall reliability of the entire
system
If you are using Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) network components for supplying power to the MOBOTIX M22M, make sure that these components do not have a fan. Since the power consumption of
MOBOTIX cameras is very low compared to other products, the reliability of the entire system is increased and the life cycle of the PoE components is expanded.

www.mobotix.com • sales@mobotix.com
M22M Camera Manual Part 1
Power-over-Ethernet (PoE according to IEEE 802.3af)
Besides MOBOTIX MxPoE, the MOBOTIX M22M also supports the Power-overEthernet standard IEEE 802.3af. You can hence use switches or routers that support the PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) standard IEEE 802.3af.
Section 3.3, Connecting the Camera to the Network and the Power Supply, contains
more information on the possible combinations of connecting the M22M and
power supply options.
Using Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS)
In order to maintain a continuous power supply even when utility power fails, you
should install an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). These devices also provide
full protection against electrical surges and voltage fluctuations and thus enhance
the reliability of the system as a whole.
When using a more powerful 19" rack-mounted USP, you can also protect all other
network components (e.g. switches, routers, PoE switches, etc.).
23/76
The M22M supports the
MOBOTIX PoE products
for power injection into
the network cabling
(MxPoE) and the Powerover-Ethernet standard
IEEE 802.3af (PoE)
UPS not only protect the
camera against power failures, they also protect all
other connected network
devices against damage
from voltage peaks and
lows
Since MOBOTIX cameras do not require any heating even in the wintertime, the power consumption of 3 W is very low. This in turn means that you can centralize the
USP-protected power supply by injecting power into the network cables (max.
100 m/300 ft). This kind of protected power supply can be used either with MOBOTIX MxPoE products (MX-NPA-3-RJ + external power supply or MX-NPR-4/8/20)
or with PoE-compliant switches according to IEEE 802.3af.

2.1.2 Providing the Camera Connections, Wall Outlets
Once the camera position, the position of the cable outlets, and the method of
power supply have been decided upon, the cabling should be installed. Before
mounting the MOBOTIX M22M, you should make sure that the network connections have been properly tested, so that the proper functioning of the camera is
guaranteed.

2.8 Mounting the Camera to Different Surfaces
Notes
Above-the-wall assembly:
When installing an above-the-wall assembly instead of using a wall
outlet, you can break out one of the four cable openings in the foot of
the mount to properly guide the cable into the mount.
Mounting the camera outdoors:
When using a wall outlet for an outdoors installation, you should
use silicone sealant to prevent water from entering the wall outlet and
the cabling by sealing off the mount's foot against the wall. You should
break out the lower cable opening in the mount's base to prevent condensation from accumulating. Make sure not to seal off this opening.
When using an above-the-wall assembly, make sure that you install
the cable from the bottom-most cable opening in order to prevent
rainwater from entering the mount. When using an above-the-wall
assembly, sealing off the SecureFlex mount and the wall is not absolutely necessary. Make sure that condensation can exit the mount
despite the above-the-wall assembly. Make sure not to seal off this
opening.
Wall thickness:
Make sure that the wall is at least five centimeters (2") thick if you
intend to use the supplied dowels and screws.

M22M Camera Manual Part 1
39/76
MOBOTIX offers five different lenses from Super Wide
Angle (L22) to Tele (L135). Since the M22M is backlightproof, these lenses do not require an auto iris. Without
the iris as a mechanical component, these glass
lenses are extremely robust and maintenance-free.
The standard lens for the M22M Secure and IT models
is the Super Wide Angle lens with a horizontal field of
vision of approx. 90°. Although the Super Wide Angle
is a super wide-angle lens, it shows very little distortion and delivers good image quality, even when using
the 4x zoom of the M22M. If a camera with a Super
Wide Angle lens has been mounted in the corner of a
room, the complete room is visible on the image.
Note
MOBOTIX lens designations do not reflect the actual focal length of the
lenses, but the focal length (Lxx mm) converted to 35 mm camera format. For example, the MOBOTIX Super Wide Angle lens has an actual
focal length of 4 mm. This would be the equivalent of 22 mm on a
35 mm camera and thus results in the MOBOTIX designation “L22” for
the Super Wide Angle lens.
Since the image sensors in the cameras have different sizes, converting to 35 mm camera as a known format provides for better comparison of the image format and the field of vision parameters of different
lenses. Another benefit is that you can easily set a 35 mm SLR camera
to the same focal length (Lxx) to obtain the same field of vision. This
approach greatly facilitates lens selection.

M22M Camera Manual Part 1
2.9.1 CS Mount Version
M22M-Sec-CSVario with
L24-54 Vario CS mount
lens
Lens cover for Vario CS
mount lens
The M22M-Sec-CSVario is delivered with a CS
mount and a compact L24-L54 1/2" vario lens. To
protect the lens against the weather, this version
comes with a longer lens cover (43 mm inside,
53 mm outside) with integrated glass pane and
threads for an external filter (40.5 mm x 0.5 mm).
This cover will work for lenses, which have a maximum diameter of 36 mm and which are not longer
than 43 mm.
Because of the image sensor's size of 1/2", you can only use CS and C mount lenses
(C mount lenses with adapter ring) for 1/2" sensors or larger. Using other lenses will
produce shadows at the image borders and will reduce image sharpness. Vario
lenses are not maintenance-free, they are definitely less robust and less reliable in
the long run as compared to the MOBOTIX M14 fixed lenses. This is why the vario
lenses are typically used in applications where locations are changing frequently, e.g.
in industrial applications.
2.9.2 Lens Cover with Glass Pane
Lens cover for fixed
lenses with tempered
glass pane for usage in
rough environmental
conditions
As an additional accessory, a heavy-duty lens
cover with a front glass pane is available for the
M22M models. This will improve the durability of
the lens cover when used in rough conditions (at
the sea, in sand storms, etc.). This lens cover also
has a thread size that fits external filters
(40.5 mm x 0.5 mm) available from photo shops.
For example, you could install a polarization filter
to cancel out the reflections from windowpanes or
windshields.
Using this lens cover together with the L22 Super Wide Angle lens is not recommended, since this lens cover produces shadows at the image borders.
Caution
Canceling out light
reflections
Make sure that the white ring remains in the lens cover, since the ring
reduces light reflections and prevents the camera LEDs from adding
reflections to the images.

•
•
•
Unmount the lens cover by turning it
counter-clockwise.
Loosen the lens' lock ring (if fitted) by turning it counter-clockwise.
Remove the lens with the lock ring by
turning it counter-clockwise.
Unscrew the lock ring (if present) from the
lens you just removed and screw it onto the
new lens.
Screw the new lens with the lock ring (if present) back into the camera.
If necessary, restore the power supply of the camera.
Adjust the image sharpness according to the camera's live image on the
computer monitor. Never turn the lens to far into the lens mount and never
apply excessive force when doing so as this would damage the lens mount
otherwise.
Tighten the lock ring by turning it in clockwise direction.
Caution: Protection class
IP65 will only be reached
with mounted lens cover
Check image sharpness!
This procedure is the same for the M22M-Sec-CSVario and CS/C mount lenses,
albeit without the lock ring (not installed).
2.10 Wiring, Fire Prevention, Lightning and Surge Protection
When installing the wiring inside or outside of buildings, make sure you always
adhere to the relevant regulations on wiring, fire prevention and protection against
lightning.
MOBOTIX recommends having MOBOTIX cameras installed only by specialists
accustomed to installing network devices and having proper respect for the pertinent
regulations regarding lightning protection and fire prevention as well as the current
technology for preventing damages from electrical surges.
Find more information at an institution such as the International Electrotechnical
Commission (IEC, www.iec.ch) or at a manufacturer of protection devices against
lightning and electrical surges, such as Dehn (www.dehn.de).
2.10.1 Wiring
When installing the wiring, make sure you follow these guidelines:
•
Data cable: Make sure you only use double-shielded
CAT 5/7 cable (S/STP) for Ethernet connections. Doubleshielded means that the cable as a whole is shielded
and that each twisted wire pair has its own shield.
© MOBOTIX AG • Security-Vision-Systems • Made in Germany

Use double-shielded CAT
5/7 cables for wiring
42/76
Carefully follow these
instructions!
M22M Camera Manual Part 1
•
•
•
Outdoors: Installing the camera outdoors requires special precautions and
measures regarding the cables as well as lightning and surge protection (see
section 2.10.3, Lightning and Surge Protection).
Wire lengths: The cable segments must not exceed the maximum allowed
cable lengths in order to ensure proper data transfer (see section 3.3,
Connecting the Camera...). Maximum cable lengths should not exceed 30 m
(33 yd) for patch cables and 100 m (110 yd.) for installed cables.
Avoid induction: When running data cables parallel to existing regular power
lines or high-voltage wires, make sure you observe the minimum distances to
the power cables.
2.10.2 Fire Prevention
When installing the power lines to the camera, make sure you always adhere to the
relevant regulations on wiring and fire prevention at the site of the installation.
2.10.3 Lightning and Surge Protection
To prevent damage from lightning and surges, make sure you follow these guidelines:
Not required if network
components are used that
support the PoE (Power
over Ethernet) standard
IEEE 802.3af!
•
Lightning conductors: In areas exposed to lightning (e.g. on roofs), a distance holder (1 m/3 ft. higher, 1 m/3 ft. away from the camera) and proper
lightning conductors need to be installed in order to prevent lightning strikes
into the camera and to ensure that the energy of a lightning strike is properly
led to the ground.
•
Surge protection: Make sure you have installed proper protection against
electrical surges in order to prevent damage to the camera, the building and
the network infrastructure. This includes surge protectors for 19" racks, adding
an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to the MOBOTIX camera and installing
surge arresters or similar for routers, switches, servers, etc.
2.11 Camera Accessories

3.3 Connecting the Camera to the Network and to the Power
Supply
3.3.1 Notes on Cable Lengths and Power Supply
•
The power supply of the camera can only be established using the 10BaseT/NET connector of the camera with the (pre-installed) network cable. In order to supply power via the network cabling we recommend the MOBOTIX PoE
products (MxPoE, see also section 2.11, Camera Accessories):
• for one camera using the Network Power Adapter (MX-NPA-3-RJ)
• for up to four cameras using the Network Power Box (MX-NPR-4)
• for up to 8 or 20 cameras using the Network Power Rack (MX-NPR-8/20)
•
The maximum length of the network cable for remotely supplying power is
100 m (300 ft).
•
Make sure that you only use switches or routers that support the 10/100
Mbps Ethernet interface of the camera. Check the LED activity of the corresponding port at the switch or router. When operating many cameras, please
also see section 4.11, Operating Many Cameras, in the Software Manual, for
additional hints.
•
It is highly recommended to use uninterruptible power supplies (UPS),
which also protect the cameras and the network components against electrical
surges.
•
Advantages of MOBOTIX PoE Products:
- Zero maintenance and reliable without fans.
- Higher reliability of the system as a whole, since standard routers/switches without PoE can be used (lower risk of failure).
- Easy installation in 19" racks (MX-NPR-8/20) or on DIN rails (MX-NPR-4).
•
If you are using IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet network components for
supplying power to MOBOTIX cameras, make sure that these components
do not have a fan. Since the power consumption of MOBOTIX cameras is
very low compared to other products, the reliability of the entire system is increased and the life cycle of these components is expanded.

3.3.6 Camera Startup Sequence
As soon as the power supply is established, the camera's LEDs will provide information on the startup sequence of the camera.
•
•
•
Booting: Immediately after connecting the power supply, the red LED lights
up, blinks for two seconds, then stays on permanently. The camera's boot
loader checks the hardware, unpacks and starts the operating system. All applications are verified using the checksums; in case of an error, the camera will
start using the backup operating system.
Waiting for key pressed: Both LEDs light up for four seconds. If you press the
"R" or "L" key of the camera during this time, the camera will execute the
corresponding function (see sections 3.5 and 3.6).
Ready: Once the application software has been started, the green LED is on
permanently and the red LED blinks. You can now reach the camera via the network using a browser. For additional information on this topic, see section
5.4.3, LED Signals and LED Configuration, in the Software Manual.
Note
If you are using Power over Ethernet components (IEEE 802.3af) for
supplying power to the MOBOTIX M22M, these components have to
provide PoE class 0 (12.95 Watts max. power consumption of attached
device). Although the M22M only uses 3 Watts and does not require
heating even at very low temperatures, this will ensure that devices
attached to the USB port of the camera will be properly supplied.
Note
During the startup sequence or a software reboot, the LEDs will always
light up, even if they have been deactivated in Admin Menu > LED
Setup.

3.4 The First Image from the Camera
Once the Ethernet connection has been established, you have the following possibilities to see the first image of the camera:
Working with the webbased user interface only
requires a web browser
with activated JavaScript!
•
•
Automatic camera search and configuration using MxControlCenter (free
Windows client for MOBOTIX cameras; section 3.4.7, The First Image in MxControlCenter)
Manual configuration (section 3.4.1, Preparing the Ethernet Connection)
Besides using MxControlCenter, you can also use a browser to access the camera
(section 3.4.2, The First Image in the Browser).
In order to finish the camera configuration, you can use either MxControlCenter or
the browser-based user interface of the camera (see section 4.3, The Live Screen in
the Browser, in the Software Manual).
3.4.1 Preparing the Ethernet Connection
Caution:
Netmask 255.0.0.0
For this example, we will use a camera with the factory IP address 10.1.0.99. Replace this IP address with the IP address of your camera. You will find this address
on a small sticker on the camera. Accessing the camera is always the same and is
independent of the connection type: simply enter the camera's IP address in the address field of the browser (see section 3.4.2, The First Image in the Browser).
Note
Pressing the “R” key on the back of the camera will let the camera
announce the current IP address of the camera using its voice
output feature.
Open a Command Prompt
(Windows):
Start > Run, enter "cmd",
then press [Return]
Your computer has to have a network or a wireless interface, and it should be in the
same subnet as the camera. If your network also uses IP addresses of a class A network (e.g. 10.x.x.x, network mask 255.0.0.0), you should be able to access
the camera directly (provided no other network device uses the same IP address).
Determine the IP address of your computer:
•
Open a command shell
(Windows) or a terminal
(Linux/UNIX/OS X) and
enter the following command:
Windows 2000/XP: ipconfig
Linux/UNIX/OS X: ifconfig
You will find the IP address of your Windows computer under IP address; for Linux/
UNIX/OS X computers, search for the inet address parameter of the eth0 device (the
first network interface). If your computer does not use an IP address in the 10.x.x.x
range, you should change the network configuration of your computer or add a new
IP address (see below).
© MOBOTIX AG • Security-Vision-Systems • Made in Germany
www.mobotix.com • sales@mobotix.com
M22M Camera Manual Part 1
Make sure that no other network device uses the camera's IP address:
•
Open a command shell (Windows) or a terminal (Linux/UNIX/OS X) and enter
the following command:
ping <factory IP address>
If you receive an answer from another network device although the camera is not
connected, you will have to remove that device until you have reset the MOBOTIX camera to a free IP address. We recommend using the Quick Installation wizard for assigning a new IP address to the camera.
If your computer does not use an IP address in the 10.0.0.0 network (e.g. a
192.168.x.x or 172.x.x.x network), you should temporarily set a new IP address in
the 10.x.x.x range:
53/76
The factory IP address is
printed on the sticker on
the camera housing
Example: 10.1.0.99
Make sure that you use
the IP address of your
camera instead of
10.1.0.99!
Windows 2000/XP
(1) Open the Network Connections and open the
Properties of LAN Connection.
(2) Double-click
Internet
Protocol (TCP/IP).
(3) On the General tab, activate the Use the following address option.
(4) Enter an IP address (e.g.
10.1.0.11) in the class
A network (10.x.x.x)
that is unique in your network and that is not the
same as the camera's IP
address.
(5) Close all dialogs by clikking on OK.
Setting up a second IP address on Windows computers
Linux/UNIX/OS X
(1) Open a terminal as root user and enter the following command (eth0 or
en0 is usually the first network interface):
Linux/UNIX: ifconfig eth0:1 10.1.0.11
OS X:
ifconfig en0:1 10.1.0.11
The computer now has the additional IP address 10.1.0.11, allowing it to access
the camera with its factory IP address in the 10.x.x.x network (10.1.0.99 in
this example).

MxControlCenter: In order to see the live image of the camera, you
can also use other applications or the integrated programming interface of the MOBOTIX camera. MxControlCenter for Windows is such
an application and is provided free of charge by MOBOTIX (see section 3.4.6, The First Image in MxControlCenter). Besides its ability to
display fast live video of up to 30 cameras simultaneously at 30 fps
each on one PC, MxControlCenter also allows recording and playing
back video clips with lip-synchronous audio via the network and can
control pan/tilt heads using a joystick or the mouse. Download the
latest version of MxControlCenter from the MOBOTIX website. The
website contains more information on MOBOTIX systems as well as
the MxControlCenter User Manual.
From camera software version 3.0.3.37, MOBOTIX cameras automatically offer their web service within the network (see section 3.4.5, Access Using Zeroconf/Bonjour). This means that the cameras will announce themselves automatically in a Bonjour list in the web browser
and in MxControlCenter. Selecting one of the listed MOBOTIX cameras
will automatically display the camera's user interface in the browser
window or in MxControlCenter.

3.4.5 Access Using Zeroconf/Bonjour
Bonjour is the implementation of this service in Apple Mac
OS X from version 10.4; in Mac OS X 10.2 and 10.3, this service is called Rendezvous.
Bonjour is available free of charge for Windows computers
from the Apple web site www.apple.com/bonjour.
For Linux and Unix, Avahi provides the corresponding functionality.
For further information on Bonjour and Zeroconf, please consult
www.apple.com/macosx/features/bonjour and the Zeroconf web site
www.zeroconf.org.
MOBOTIX cameras support Bonjour by default
from software version
3.0.3.37!
From software version 3.0.3.37, MOBOTIX cameras automatically offer their web
service via Zeroconf/Bonjour. This means that the cameras will announce themselves automatically in a Bonjour list in the web browser and in MxControlCenter. Selecting a MOBOTIX camera in the browser will display the camera's user interface
in the browser window; likewise, MxControlCenter will be able to find the camera.
Note
A major advantage of Zeroconf/Bonjour is that you do not need to
know the IP address or the name of the MOBOTIX camera in order
to access it.
Another advantage of Bonjour is that all cameras will be found
regardless if they are in the same subnet or in other subnets as
long as they are in the same physical network as the computer. If
the cameras are not in the same subnet, actually connecting to them
is not as easy. The name of the camera is listed in the web browser,
but connecting via HTTP will not work, however. Using MxControlCenter allows reconfiguring the camera automatically for the subnet
of the computer. You can now easily reach the camera in a web
browser and MxControlCenter.
Caution
When using the camera in a network with managed switches or internal filewalls, make sure that port 5353 UDP is not blocked or else
Zeroconf/Bonjour will not work.

Apple Bonjour
Automatic network configuration for MOBOTIX
cameras using Zeroconf/
Bonjour
Zeroconf (short for Zero Configuration Networking) describes the networking method of automatically establishing an IP-based network without the help of servers
and without changing any settings. Zeroconf-capable devices automatically announce their name and the service they are providing (printer, email server, etc.) in
the network. As a basic technology, Zeroconf is part of the current Windows, Linux
and Mac OS X operating systems.

Click on OK to add the selected cameras to the Open Video Sources dialog.
Anytime you connect a new camera to the local network, you can initiate the search in
the Open Video Sources dialog again by pushing the
button.
If the desired MOBOTIX cameras are highlighted in the video source list, proceed to
Selecting Video Sources.
Configuring MOBOTIX Cameras for a Different Network
Using Bonjour, MxControlCenter finds not only cameras on the same subnet (network range) but also MOBOTIX cameras located in other subnets (status: Different subnet). Normally, you would not be able to establish any connection to cameras in a different network or subnet (without going into much further detail about
the complicated details of TCP/IP network configurations). This is possible, for
example, when a camera with a factory IP address is connected to a network in
which a DHCP server automatically assigns the IP addresses.
Click on Configure network in the context menu and MxControlCenter will automatically reconfigure this camera so that it is "integrated" into your existing subnet. However, MxControlCenter first needs some information about the subnet into
which the camera will be integrated. You can enter this information in the Configure Cameras dialog that opens automatically.
If your computer gets its IP
address automatically from a
DHCP server, then this is certainly
the best choice for the new camera and most likely for all other
cameras which have been found
in a different subnet (Apply to all
inaccessible cameras checkbox).
If you have assigned a fixed IP
address to your computer, you
will certainly prefer to assign fixed IP addresses (issued by your system administrator) to every camera. In most
cases, you should enter a similar configuration as the one found for your computer's
Network Connections in the Properties of Internet protocol (TCP/IP) dialog.

Automatic camera configuration by MxControlCenter
66/76
M22M Camera Manual Part 1
MxControlCenter changes the network configuration of the current camera and, after
a short time, the camera also appears in the list with a new IP address and in the
same subnet as your computer.
Make sure that the Save camera configuration permanently checkbox is activated
so that the new network settings will be used from now on and not just until the camera's next reboot.
Note
If you have set a different user name and password for administration
than the factory-preset ones (admin, meinsm), you will need to have
these user credentials available and enter them in the appropriate dialog. To open the dialog, click on the Enter password context menu
entry.
Defining Additional Video Sources
Besides automatically detecting MOBOTIX cameras, you can also manually add
other video sources to the list of available video sources in MxControlCenter.
•
•
•
•
Automatic search: Scans the (physical) network. This scan will find all MOBOTIX cameras, regardless of whether they are in the
same subnet as the computer or in a different one.
Add camera manually: Enter a known IP
address or the DNS name of a MOBOTIX camera if this camera had not been detected
during the automatic search in the first
place.
Add MxPEG clip: Adds an MxPEG video clip previously recorded by a MOBOTIX
camera as a video source.
Add file server path: Adds the alarm images previously stored by a MOBOTIX
camera on an external file server as a video source.
Selecting Video Sources
Highlight the desired video sources you would like to manage and display in
MxControlCenter.
Camera preview
If you select a camera with a status of OK,
MxControlCenter automatically displays the live
images from the camera in the preview window. If you are using [Ctrl]-click to select several
cameras, the image from the camera selected

M22M Camera Manual Part 1
Editing the video source list
This list provides a popup menu (right mouse key), allowing you to select/deselect all video sources at
once. Similarly, you can highlight some or all of the listed video sources and remove them from the list if
they are not to be displayed or managed in MxControlCenter.
If you interrupt the discovery process (section Configuring MOBOTIX Cameras for a Different Subnet) or require a password that is different from the factory preset one, you can always relaunch the configuration process from the popup menu at a later time and enter the
appropriate user name and password.
Using the selected video sources
Clicking on OK instructs MxControlCenter to use the highlighted cameras. Activate
the Show selected video sources in new standard layout checkbox and MxControlCenter automatically generates a layout with the live images of all highlighted
cameras.

M22M Camera Manual Part 1
3.5 Starting the Camera With an Automatic IP Address (DHCP)
If your network has a DHCP server, you can start the camera with DHCP support. In
this case, the DHCP server automatically assigns an IP address.
As soon as startup has been completed, the camera automatically announces its
IP address, its network mask and its MAC address (note that this feature requires
an external speaker). Note that this announcement function can be deactivated
(Admin Menu > Loudspeaker and Microphone).
Proceed as follows to start the camera using DHCP:
•
•
•
•
If the camera is powered on, disconnect the power supply of the camera by
unplugging the corresponding cable.
Reconnect power to the camera and observe the LEDs.
Wait until both LEDs are lighting up simultaneously for the first time.
Press the "R" key on the camera within four seconds.
Press "R" key
"R" key
•
•
After about two more seconds, the camera plays a sound twice ("Boing, Boing"), if an external speaker has been connected.
After about another 15 seconds, the camera will announce its network data,
provided it has audio functionality.
You can now access the camera using the IP address it just announced and via
the list of Bonjour-enabled devices.
Notes
Announce IP address:
Press "R" key
Simply press the "R" key once if you would like to prompt a running
camera to announce its network settings.
Caution
In case of an error, the
camera uses its last IP
address
When starting the camera with DHCP support, make sure that the network has a properly functioning DHCP server. If this is not the case, the
camera cannot obtain a valid IP address and will fall back to its last
known IP address.

M22M Camera Manual Part 1
3.6 Starting the Camera Using the Factory IP Address
In certain situations, it may become necessary to start the camera with its factory IP
address. This could be the case, for example, if the IP address has been lost or the
camera does not react to the last known IP address.
Passwords and camera
settings will not be changed!
Proceed as follows to start the camera using its factory IP address:
•
•
•
•
If the camera is powered on, disconnect the power supply of the camera by
unplugging the corresponding cable.
Reconnect power to the camera and observe the LEDs.
Wait until both LEDs are lighting up simultaneously for the first time.
Press the "L" key on the camera within four seconds.
Press "L" key
"L" key
•
After about two more seconds, the camera plays a single sound ("Boing"), if
an external speaker has been connected.
The camera is now accessible again using its factory IP address (see label on the
camera housing).
Note
If you use the camera's "L" key to load the factory network configuration, this configuration is not automatically saved to flash memory.
Upon restarting the camera the next time without using the camera's
"L" key, the last stored network configuration will be used. To permanently store the new network configuration in the camera's flash memory, open Admin Menu > Store ...
Make sure you store the
factory network configuration to the permanent
flash memory
Caution
As opposed to resetting the camera using Admin Menu > Reset
configuration to factory defaults (see section 1.4.5), the users and
passwords defined in the camera will not be reset if the camera is
being booted using the factory IP address.
