D25M Camera Manual
FOREWORD
Dear MOBOTIX customer,
Congratulations on your decision to purchase an extraordinarily powerful and compact
network camera “Made in Germany”! The D25M MonoDome is a complete decentralized system that has a high-performance processor, integrated software, an array
of sensors and a digital SD card video recorder for long-term storage. The
weatherproof MiniUSB and MxBus interfaces of the camera allow attaching
MOBOTIX interface boxes and standard devices, such as 3G/UMTS modems,
external storage devices, etc.
The numerous, easily interchangeable lens options of the D25M provide for
solutions that can be tailored for many different application scenarios. This
robust dome camera (IP65) can also be ordered with optional Vandalism, On-Wall
and In-Ceiling sets.
The introduction of the newest five-megapixel sensor technology with increased light
sensitivity not only generates more brilliant images with more details, it also delivers color
images of higher quality under lowlight conditions. Another improvement – The D25M-IT
now generates HD images (1280 x 720 pixels) instead of the VGA images of predecessor
models (640 x 480 pixels).
Another plus – the improved light sensitivity of the 5MP sensors, which drastically reduces
exposure times. In conjunction with MxLEO, the exposure and image optimization program
working in the background, the camera generates perceptibly better and more detailed
images especially under low-light conditions. This significantly reduces motion blur that
is typical of longer exposure times with little light and thus provides much more image
detail (faces, license plates, etc.) for proper identification.
You can download the MOBOTIX video management software MxEasy and MxControlCenter
and the manuals from the MOBOTIX website: www.mobotix.com > Support > Software
Downloads. For the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch iOS devices, MOBOTIX offers the
MOBOTIX App, a free-of-charge mobile solution that is easily found when searching for
“MOBOTIX AG” in the App Store.
If you have any questions, our support and international sales staff are available at
intl-support@mobotix.com from Monday to Friday, 8 am to 6 pm (German time).
We would like to thank you for your trust and wish you all the best with your new MOBOTIX
camera D25M MonoDome!

A Master Of Adaptability
All D25M models come with an easily interchangeable lens and a robust 1.5 mm thick
polycarbonate dome. An extensive range of accessories is also available for installing
the camera in an application-optimized manner, for supplying power or expanding the
functions of the camera. Furthermore, MOBOTIX customers can take advantage of MxEasy
or the professional control center software MxControlCenter free of charge and with an
unlimited user and camera license. If required, a D25M camera can even be upgraded to
function as a powerful intercom system by adding the MOBOTIX ExtIO module.
Robust And Elegant
The D25M is available in the Secure, IT or Basic models depending on the software features.
Five high-performance lenses are currently available for the D25M in the compact M14
housing. Due to their low power consumption of only 3 watts, D25M cameras can operate in an extremely wide temperature range (–30 to +50°C/–22 to +122°F). Since MOBOTIX
cameras neither fog up nor require heating, power can be supplied via the network cabling
using standard PoE products. The D25M IT and Secure models are completely dust-proof
and resistant to water jets (IP65; D25M Basic: IP54). The D25M Wall Mount makes the
camera ideally suited for outdoor use and for installation over surface-mounted sockets
so that the cabling remains thoroughly concealed.
Complete HiRes Video Solutions by MOBOTIX
As opposed to conventional solutions, MOBOTIX cameras with their decentralized approach offer so much more – state-of-the-art, network-based
video security technology that increases operating efficiency and yields a
high degree of every-day usefulness.
Extraordinary Picture Quality
Image quality is the one key criterion of a security camera. Due to their internal video
analysis and data storage capabilities, the decentralized MOBOTIX systems are independent of the available network bandwidth. As a result, the system provides for efficiently
storing and managing the video streams of a virtually unlimited number of cameras with
the highest resolution at a reasonable cost.
5 Megapixel Image Sensors (5MP)
MOBOTIX cameras possess high-resolution image sensors with 5 megapixel resolution and excellent light sensitivity, which translates into more details when zooming and
more clear-cut advantages for every user. By using the 5MP technology in their color
and black&white image sensors, MOBOTIX cameras deliver convincing image quality
and details even in bad weather and under lowlight conditions. Another important plus:
thanks to its internal pre-processing of the image data, the camera can generate video
streams with up to 30 frames per second.

MOBOTIX ExtIO
(functional extension for D25M)
12/140
D25M Camera Manual: Product Overview
QXGA Image Format: 2.5 Times More Detail than Full HD
The 5MP sensor has a resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels on both day and night sensors.
While the image sensor shows its full strength when zooming the live image, the maximum
image size per sensor has the more user-friendly QXGA format.
Low Light Conditions – No Problem
The maximum resolution of the color and black&white image sensors is 5 megapixels.
The higher light sensitivity of the new color image sensors now allow using MOBOTIX color
cameras around the clock even when the illumination is low.
MxLEO: Exposure Optimization and Reduced Image Noise
MxLEO – the MOBOTIX Lowlight Exposure Optimization – is an innovative technology that
provides an entirely new experience in digital image optimization in all cameras running
firmware 4.1.9 and higher. On the one hand, the improved light sensitivity of the MOBOTIX
5MP sensors drastically reduces exposure times. MxLEO, the exposure and image optimization program especially developed for these conditions, on the other hand, generates
perceptibly better and more detailed images especially under low-light conditions below
25 Lux. Such conditions are typical at a parking lot at night that is illuminated by regular
lights (approx. 10 to 25 Lux). Or in a building after hours, in which the emergency lights
are burning (approx. 5 Lux). This significantly reduces motion blur that is typical of longer
exposure times with little light and thus provides much more image detail (faces, license
plates, etc.) for proper identification.
High-Resolution Sees More And Costs Less
One D25M camera equipped with a 82° Wide Angle lens is usually all that is required to
monitor either an entire room from a corner or the four lanes of a gas station. The high
degree of image detail not only reduces the number of required cameras, but also minimizes
system costs by reducing the wiring complexity, emergency power requirements and number
of recording devices required. D25M cameras (IT and Secure) feature direct recording to
integrated MicroSD cards or external USB drives. As a result, these cameras can be used
in standalone operation with zero network load!

Universal Application From The Vacation Home To The Airport
MOBOTIX D25M cameras are suitable for use in large-scale facilities like airports given
their unlimited scalability and high performance. However, they are equally suitable for
use in small commercial or private buildings thanks to their integrated event, storage,
alarm and telephony functions.
The Right Lens For Every Application
You can change the lens in the D25M camera models on site whenever necessary. Each
lens is secured by a lock ring. Each camera has a factory-aligned and quality-tested lens,
which makes on-site camera focusing unnecessary in most cases. The D25M cameras
are available for delivery with a lens of your choosing or no lens at all.
The image area captured by the D25M varies depending on the selected lens. With a
Super Wide Angle lens (L25 with 82°), for example, almost an entire room can be recorded
from just one corner. With an L160 Telephoto lens, a D25M camera with a high-resolution
5 megapixel sensor is capable
of clearly recording a license
plate number from a distance
of 75 meters. Or even the serial
number of a 5 euro bill from a
distance of two meters!

D25M Camera Manual: Product Overview
Virtual PTZ (vPTZ) – No Motor Required
The D25M can zoom in on detail as well. These vPTZ functions are a standard feature in
the integrated D25M camera software. The image from the mono dome camera can be
enlarged using e.g. the mouse wheel, a joystick or a software-controlled PTZ panel, and
you can "move" the view to any section of the image. This provides the features of
a mechanical PTZ camera without the disadvantages of maintenance and wear.
Quick and easy navigation with a USB joystick
Original D25M image
with L25 lens (82°)
This vPTZ functionality works differently depending on the camera operation platform
(web browser, MxEasy, MxControlCenter). Virtual zoom, pan and tilt using MxEasy and
MxControlCenter is very simple thanks to special software tools and the use of an optional
joystick. However, a joystick may also be used even with pure browser-based operation
from Internet Explorer (together with an ActiveX plug-in).

D25M Overview
Simultaneous Zoomed Live Image And Full Image Recording
All conventional, motorized PTZ cameras only store the image that is currently viewed as
the live image (live image recording). This has one serious disadvantage as the recording
can only show what has happened in the "visible" portion of the image; the rest is lost and
cannot be examined later on. For this reason, MOBOTIX has added the new full image
recording feature to the D25M. This will not store the currently viewed image that reflects
the pan/tilt position and the zoom setting chosen by the user, but the full sensor image ‑
without vPTZ settings. When examining the recorded images at a later point in time, the
vPTZ features again come into play, as they allow the visible image to be zoomed and
use the pan/tilt features to examine every corner of the recorded full image.
Example:
The people marked by the red circle in the middle area of the image would not have been
recorded by a regular PTZ camera; the full image recording of the D25M allows you to
determine, for example, the exact time at which these people entered the image area
recorded by the camera. A browser (Internet Explorer with MxPEG ActiveX plug-in),
MxControlCenter or MxEasy can be used to examine the recorded sequences.
Live image
Stored Full Image
The image distortion caused by the L25 82°
Wide Angle lens can be corrected. Since this
function requires more computing power, it
should not be enabled in the live image for
applications that require a maximum frame
rate. The image distortion in the recording can
also be corrected at a later time.

D25M Camera Manual: Product Overview
Internal DVR
4 GB MicroSD card preinstalled in the camera
(D25M IT/Secure)
The D25M IT/Secure model features direct recording to integrated
MicroSD cards, which makes the camera fully independent of any
external storage media, even for longer periods of time. The camera
internally stores high-resolution video, without requiring an external
recording device or PC and therefore without overloading the network
whatsoever. Old recordings may be overwritten automatically or automatically deleted after a specified period of time. A 16 GB MicroSD
card, for example, allows the camera to store more than a quarter
million event images in VGA format (640 x 480). For security reasons,
the camera can even encrypt the stored data.
Power failures are not an issue, as the video and image sequences remain safely stored
on the MicroSD card. Access to stored video sequences is possible at any time from the
camera user interface in the browser, MxControlCenter or MxEasy. If you would like to
archive sequences, you can store all of the data or only certain parts to a computer or
a USB hard disk.
MxActivitySensor Video Motion Analysis: Secure Detection, Avoiding False Alarms
Regardless if there are large objects in the foreground or small objects in the background –
MxActivitySensor will only trigger video recording and alarm messaging if something
important is happening. Interference such as trees shaking in the wind, moving shadows
and clouds and snow falling will no longer lead to false alarms. Since all of this is filtered
automatically, all that remains is to set the direction of movement of objects that should
trigger alarms.
Robust And Maintenance-Free
Thanks to their low power consumption of approximately 3 watts and the total absence
of mechanical moving parts, the D25M models feature the highest operating temperature
range from –30 to +50°C/–22 to +122°F and are completely dust-proof and resistant to
water jets (D25M IT/Secure IP65; D25M Basic IP54). Since the cameras neither fog up
nor require heating, power can be supplied all year round via the Ethernet cabling using
standard PoE products.

The D25M-Basic and IT models now generate HD images (1280 x 720 pixels) instead of the
VGA images of predecessor models (640 x 480 pixels). The special quality advantage of a
MOBOTIX Basic/IT camera with HD resolution (1280 x 720): The HD images of a MOBOTIX are
generated by the high-resolution image sensor with 2592 x 1944 pixels and are optimized
and scaled down for the HD format. Because of the high-resolution sensor, the generated
images – especially with respect to quality and light sensitivity – are noticeably superior
than regular HD cameras that are only using a simple HD sensor with 1280 x 720 pixels.

D25M Camera Manual: Product Overview
1.1.2 Advantages and New Features
The high-resolution D25M MonoDome is a universally deployable, highly innovative and
easily concealable camera system. A powerful successor to the D24M, the D25M features
five-megapixel image sensors. For technical reasons, the live or recorded images displayed
by an D25M sensor have a maximum size of QXGA. However, the D25M is clearly superior
to the previous model in terms of image quality and frame rate.
Smooth HiRes Video Streams
The modified hardware of the D25M transmits the camera‘s video streams even more
smoothly than the high-performance D24M, even when high resolution is required. Since
image streams of 16 frames per second and higher are perceived as fluid video by the
human eye, the maximum frame rate is limited to 30 frames per second (when using
MEGA resolution of 1280 x 960) in order to provide sufficient camera processing power
for other tasks.
Conclusive Still Images
Thanks to the proprietary MxPEG video codec developed exclusively for MOBOTIX cameras,
the cameras offer the advantage that a recording can be paused at any given point and
still provide meaningful and useful snapshots due to the absence of distortion. This is
essential for security applications and allows individuals or license plates to be identified,
for example. In contrast, the H.264 standard, which was developed for feature movies
and is favored by some video security providers, cannot achieve this with the required
level of quality.
Good Color Images Even In Low Light
The more light-sensitive an image sensor is, the better the image quality, especially when
the ambient light level is low, such as at dusk and in heavy rainfall. The D25M offers the
best MOBOTIX image quality that is currently available thanks to the light sensitivity provided by the five-megapixel color sensor that is four times higher than that of the previous
three-megapixel color sensor and the new MxLEO exposure control.
More Details When Zooming
The maximum zoom factor of the D25M is 1.26 times higher than that of the S14 due to
the use of five-megapixel technology. This means that the degree of detail provided by
the camera has improved by 26 percent. As a result, an D25M can now be installed even
further away than before from the objects and areas to be monitored. In addition, this
relativizes the horizontal image angles of the new five-megapixel sensors that are slightly
smaller compared to the D24M.
Black&White Image Sensor with 5 Megapixels
You can now order the D25M with a five-megapixel night sensor that can deliver black
and white images with up to QXGA resolution. This results in larger images than those
delivered by the previous 1.3-megapixel sensor with a perceptibly higher degree of details.

D25M Overview
MxActivitySensor
The D25M provides an activity-controlled image analysis sensor as standard for detecting
the movements of people and objects in a defined surveillance area (full image or section).
The MxActivitySensor delivers reliable results particularly in outdoor area applications, in
contrast to video motion detection that continues to be available and that registers all
image changes in defined video motion windows. In the monitored area, the camera
distinguishes between the continuous movements of vehicles, persons or objects that
trigger an alarm and movements that do not set off an alarm such as shadows, changing
light conditions and trees swaying in the wind.
Low Power Consumption In Accordance With The PoE Standard (IEEE 802.3af)
An D25M uses no more power than its predecessor (typically 4.5 watts), despite the new
sensor technology. Adjusting the PoE class via the camera software also enables the use
of PoE switches that cannot be operated on all ports with PoE class 3 (up to max. 12.95 V).

D25M Camera Manual: Product Overview
1.1.3 Decentralized Video System
Usually, cameras only supply images, while processing and recording take place later
on a central PC using video management software. This centralized structure has too
many limitations for high-resolution video systems since it requires high network bandwidth
and the PC processing power is insufficient when using several high-resolution cameras.
Due to the large number of computers and servers required, traditional centralized systems
are therefore becoming less suitable and cost effective.
As part of the decentralized
MOBOTIX camera
MOBOTIX concept, every camera
features a high-speed processor,
and, if necessary, digital long-term
flash memory (MicroSD card) can
be integrated to provide several
days of recording time. The comCMOS
CPU
MicroSD
puter or video control center is
5 megapixels Image analysis Recording
required only to view and control
the cameras, not to evaluate and
record video. This means that you do not have to rely on expensive, overloaded video
management software as most of the important functions that require a large amount of
processing power are integrated into the MOBOTIX cameras themselves.
Integrated sensors enable MOBOTIX cameras such as the D25M to automatically detect
when an event has occurred. If necessary, the cameras will respond immediately with an
alarm sound and will establish a direct video and sound connection to a control room.
The D25M is equipped with a shock detector as standard (for all IT and Secure models).
For example, if the camera receives a blow to the housing, it can simultaneously take a
video of the offender, trigger a sound alarm and notify the security company by a SIP call.
Due to the build quality and absence of moving parts, MOBOTIX cameras are extremely
tough. This typically allows them to stay fully operational especially when they are subject
to strong vibrations.
All MOBOTIX cameras are backlight-proof and are not adversely affected by the glare
from direct sunlight. They deliver meaningful, detailed images at all times as the camera
software supports easy programming of independent exposure windows, making them
ideal for rooms with large glass fronts.
In the event of an alarm, MOBOTIX D25M camerascan also record lip-synchronous audio.
The cameras therefore play an important role in analyzing and clarifying a situation. Thanks
to an integrated speaker and microphone, each individual camera can also be used for
bidirectional communication (two-way video communication), so you can easily use the
MOBOTIX App with your iPhone or iPad on the road.

D25M Overview
The decentralized MOBOTIX video solutions are superior to traditional systems in all major
aspects. They are also considerably cheaper to operate since they require
• Fewer cameras due to the more accurate detail of panorama images with megapixel technology
• Fewer recording devices because in the decentralized system, ten times the standard
number of cameras can be used to record high-resolution HDTV video with sound
on one computer/server simultaneously
• Lower network bandwidth because everything is processed in the camera itself
and the high-resolution images therefore do not have to be constantly transported
for analysis

1.1.4 Green IP Video
The modern, network-based video security technology offers numerous advantages to
use energy efficiently. Due to the special product and system properties, the decision to
install MOBOTIX video systems is also a decision for Green IP Video: low power consumption and environmental friendly because of long life expectancy and minimal amount of
materials involved.
Low Power Consumption
MOBOTIX cameras are cost-efficiently supplied via PoE. This reduces the expenses for
power and, in addition, saves copper and other important raw material as less power
cabling is necessary.
Robust
MOBOTIX IP65 cameras are highly robust and work – without high-power climate control
and extra protective housing – in a temperature range from –30 to +50°C/–22 to +122°F.
Modern
Integrated into the cameras are high-power processors and flash storage, thus making
energy-consuming servers and storage devices unnecessary. And, of course, the disposal
of waste later.
High Resolution
A hemispheric MOBOTIX camera with two image sensors replaces up to eight standard
cameras – including their consumption of energy and resources.
Sustainable
Without mechanical components, MOBOTIX cameras are maintenance-free and stay fully
functional, even after years – and are, thus, more sustainable compared to other systems.
Forward-Looking
Even previous camera models can be easily updated and then offer new functionalities.
Remote updates via the internet and the fact that the cameras are maintenance-free
reduce trips by car, and, thereby, the negative effect on the environment.

1.2.1 Lens Options, Hardware And Software Features
MOBOTIX currently offers five standard lenses with M14 thread from the L25 Super Wide
Angle lens with a 22 mm focal length through to the L135 Telephoto lens with a 135 mm focal
length (equivalent to 35 mm camera). Since MOBOTIX cameras are backlight-proof, they do
not require a mechanical auto iris, making them extremely robust and maintenance-free.
• L25 Super Wide Angle with 82° image angle (horizontal)
• L38 Wide Angle with 55° image angle (horizontal)
• L51 Wide Angle with 40° image angle (horizontal)
• L76 Telephoto with 27° image angle (horizontal)
• L160 Telephoto with 13° image angle (horizontal)
The L25 Super Wide Angle 82° lens has very little distortion and delivers good image
quality, even when using the maximum digital zoom. If a camera with this lens has been
mounted in the corner of a room, the complete room is visible on the image.

Notes
The specified focal lengths of the 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 L25 Super Wide-Angle lens has an actual focal length of
4 mm. This would be the equivalent of 25 mm on a 35 mm camera. It is therefore
referred to as an L25. Since the image sensors in digital cameras have different
sizes, converting the focal lengths to 35 mm camera as a known format allows the
image formats and the fields of vision of the different lenses to be calculated and
compared more easily. Another benefit is that you can easily set a 35 mm camera
(analog or digital) to the same focal length as the MOBOTIX lens (Lxx) to obtain the
same field of vision. This approach greatly facilitates lens selection.

INSTALLATION
Although the D25M is primarily designed for installation on walls and ceilings, it can also
be mounted to a pole or the corner of a building, for example, using the appropriate
MOBOTIX accessories.
2.1
Preparing The Installation
Before installing the MOBOTIX D25M, the following questions should be answered:
1. Where will the camera be mounted?
Mounting to a ceiling or wall, see Section 2.1.1
2. Which other mounting options are available?
On-wall mounting, in-ceiling mounting, vandalism protection, wall mounting, pole
mounting, see Section 2.1.2
3. How is the camera connected to the network and how is the power supplied?
MX-NPA-PoE or other PoE components (IEEE 802.3af), see Section 2.1.3
4. How are the connections furnished from the building?
Sockets, see Section 2.1.4
5. What cabling considerations are necessary?
Wiring, see Section 2.1.5

Preparing The Installation
2.1.1 Ceiling And Wall Mounting
Like all MOBOTIX cameras, the D25M is extremely flexible in terms of how and where it
can be installed (see Section 2.1.2). The Basic model meets the IP54 standard while the IT
and Secure models are weatherproof in accordance with IP65. However, installations on
a wall or ceiling are the most common mounting positions. In indoor spaces, the D25M
is usually mounted from the ceiling. The Super Wide Angle lens (82°, L25) allows a room
to be monitored almost entirely by a camera mounted in the corner. Using the PTZ software,
you can easily zoom in on image details in either the live image or the recording.

D25M Camera Manual: Installation
Wall Installation Using The Outdoor Wall Mount
Outdoors, the D25M is usually mounted on a building wall. In principle, the camera can
be installed without additional wall mounts, although the positional range of the lens may
be limited as a result. We therefore recommend using the practical Wall Mount from
the range of available accessories (see Section 2.6). The cable exit of the D25M is located
in the center of the housing's underside. For more detailed information on the installation
process, see Section 2.2 and the following sections. The appropriate drilling templates

Power over Ethernet (PoE Conforming To IEEE 802.3af)
The D25M supports the Power over
Ethernet standard
IEEE 802.3af (PoE)
All D25M models are supplied with power using the PoE standard. The Network Power
Adapter (MX-NPA-PoE-Set) may be used for smaller installations. For larger installations,
it is worth investing in a PoE-capable supply device D25M available on the market (PoE
switch/router).

The maximum length of the network cable for power supply over an Ethernet cable is
100 m. The Mx2wire+ media converter set (available as an accessory) can be used to
extend the range of an Ethernet connection up to 500 m in length (maximum transmission
speed for a 500-m cable: 45 Mbps and 12 W for the PoE device).
Note
The MOBOTIX D25M can be powered by switches or routers which support the PoE
(Power-over-Ethernet) standard and conform to IEEE 802.3af.
Advantages of PoE power supply:
• Allows setting up centralized backup power supply via the network.
• Reduces energy consumption.
• No extra network connection for camera required.

Using Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS)
You should install an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) in order to maintain a continuous
power supply even when utility power fails. These devices also provide full protection against
electrical surges and voltage fluctuations, enhancing the reliability of the system as a whole.
When using a more powerful 19” rack-mounted UPS, you can also protect all other network
components (for example, switches, routers, PoE switches, etc.).
Since MOBOTIX cameras do not require any heating, even during winter, the average
power consumption of less than 5 watts is very low. This, in turn, means that you can
centralize the UPS-protected power supply by injecting power into the Ethernet cables
(max. 100 m). This kind of protected power supply can be used either with MOBOTIX
PoE products (MX-NPA-PoE + Universal Power Supply) or with PoE-compliant switches
according to IEEE 802.3af.

2.1.4 Preparing the Camera Connections, MX-Overvoltage-Protection-Box
Once the camera position, the position of the cable outlets and the method of power supply have been decided upon, the cabling can be installed. Before installing the MOBOTIX
D25M, you should make sure that the network connections have been properly tested so
that the proper functioning of the camera is guaranteed.
If the camera is to be installed outdoors, you should also install the MOBOTIX
MX-Overvoltage-Protection-Box (optional accessory). This interface box not only provides
overvoltage protection of up to 4 kV for MOBOTIX IP cameras, it also provides simple
and weatherproof connection of the cameras to a network patch cable (-RJ45 variant) or
a network installation cable (-LSA variant).

D25M Camera Manual: Installation
2.1.5 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 cameras are protected against the effects of small electrical surges by a range
of measures. These measures, however, cannot prevent the camera from being damaged
when stronger electrical surges occur. Particular care should be taken when installing the
camera outside to ensure proper protection against lightning, as this also protects the
building and the entire network infrastructure.
MOBOTIX recommends having MOBOTIX cameras installed only by certified specialists
accustomed to installing network devices and having proper respect for the applicable
regulations regarding lightning protection and fire prevention as well as the current technology for preventing damages from electrical surges.
Guidelines for Wiring
• Data cable: Make sure you only use double-shielded
CAT5 or higher cable (S/STP) for Ethernet connections.
• Outdoors: Installing the camera outdoors requires special
precautions and measures regarding the cables as well
as lightning and surge protection (see below).
• Wire lengths: The cable segments must not exceed the
maximum allowed cable lengths in order to ensure proper
data transfer (see Section 2.9).
• Avoiding 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.
Fire Prevention
When installing the power lines to the camera, make sure you always adhere to the
country-specific regulations (e.g. VDE in Germany, IEEE in the USA) in effect on wiring and
fire prevention at the site of the installation.

Preparing The Installation
Lightning and Surge Protection
In order to avoid damage to MOBOTIX cameras from overvoltages, you should always
install the MX-Overvoltage-Protection-Box. This competitively priced and weatherproof
network connector provides reliable protection against overvoltages of up to 4 kV; the box
is easily installed in the Outdoor Wall Mount, for example (see Section 1.4.12, «MX-OvervoltageProtection-Box»).
More information is available 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).

reliably protects the outer shell from moisture entering the camera. All openings of
the camera housing need to be properly sealed. This is the only way to guarantee
that the camera remains weatherproof.
Notes
Network Connection Without Pre-Installed Cable
The network cable is fed through the ceiling directly above the camera. Make sure
the cable is completely sealed by the rubber gasket on the housing (do not bend the
cable!) When preparing the installation, ensure that at least 15 cm of cable length
(excluding the connector itself) remains inside the camera housing (similar to factory
preinstallation). This will ensure that you can turn and tilt the lens mount freely later on.
Surface-Mounted Socket
If a surface-mounted socket is used, the camera must be mounted using the outdoor Wall Mount. The camera cannot be mounted directly on top of protruding,
surface-mounted sockets.

Mounting The Camera Without Accessories
2.2.3 Procedure For D25M IT/Secure
1. Install and prepare the network connection
2. Install the flush-mounted socket:The pre-installed cable attached to the camera
must be connected with the on-site network cable. For installation without accessories, a flush-mounted socket must be installed first to provide space for the connection. The cabling is now perfectly protected and cannot be seen or accessed
from the outside. The camera cannot be mounted directly on top of protruding,
surface-mounted sockets. Use the supplied camera drilling template (fold-out at
the end of this manual) to mark the position of the flush-mounted socket for the
desired camera position.
3. Drill the holes: Drill the holes for the supplied screw anchors (see drilling template).
4. Connect the cable: Connect the on-site network cable to the camera patch cable
using a standard connector.
5. Attach the camera: Use the (included) screws to affix the mounting ring and the
camera at the designated position.
6. The outer shell is required at a later stage in the installation and is attached only
when the dome has been removed and placed back after a lens adjustment.
7. Proceed to Section 3.3.1, «Aiming and Adjusting The Lens».

Mounting The Camera Without Accessories
4. Remove the internal part of the camera with the lens
mount from the base of the camera.
5. Position the base of the camera housing over the
drilled holes and the prepared cable exit. Please make
sure that the camera base is relatively flush with the surface. The network cable with connector should be flush
with the ceiling or wall as a result. Since the three holes
for the screws in the outer shell are factory sealed, they
must broken open, for example, using a 5 mm drill bit.
6. Tighten the base of the camera using the supplied
screws. Depending on the installation site, the screw
openings should be sealed shut (e.g. with silicon).
7. Insert the internal part of the camera with the lens
mount into the attached outer shell and secure it by
turning the two blue clamps in a clockwise direction using
the supplied hook wrench or a screwdriver. This will prevent the internal part of the camera from falling out before
it has been tightened into place.
8. Now secure the internal part of the camera by turning
the toothed ring in a clockwise direction until you can still
turn the internal part of the camera without much force.
9. Connect the network cable to the network connector
of the camera.

D25M Camera Manual: Installation
2.3 Mounting The Camera With The On-Wall Set
2.3.1 Mounting Instructions
On-Wall Sets available in 0° and 10° inclinations allow the D25M to be installed quickly
and easily on the wall or ceiling of a room. When using the set outdoors (IP65), ensure
that the screw holes on the rear of the camera housing are sealed with the included foam
rubber washers. It is not possible to install the On-Wall Set directly above a surface- or
flush-mounted socket.
The 10° On-Wall Set is the right choice if you want to mount the D25M on a wall with the
lens pointing vertically downward (90° or more). If the 10° On-Wall Set is not used, then
the angle of the lens may not exceed 80° for design-related reasons.
If the discreet appearance of the D25M is of particular importance, the In-Ceiling Set is
ideal for mounting the camera on ceilings or drywalls.
The network connection and drill holes must be prepared correctly before installing the
On-Wall Set (both indoors and outdoors):
• Network connection: You can use any one of the four openings in the On-Wall Set
to guide the cabling into the camera. The network cable must be fed through the
opening without a connector. An additional connector to connect to the camera
cable is required.
• Preparing the drill holes: Use the supplied drilling template for the D25M On-Wall
Set (fold-out at the end of this manual) to mark the exact position for drilling the
anchor holes with regard to the camera position.
Caution
When using the On-Wall Set outdoors, ensure that the screw holes on the rear of the
camera housing are sealed with the foam rubber washers included in delivery (IP65).

2.4 Mounting The Camera With The In-Ceiling Set
The white decorative
ring is also available
in stainless steel
2.4.1 Mounting Instructions
The In-Ceiling Set offers the most stylish installation option for the D25M. When properly
installed, the only visible component is a particularly sleek and discreet dome camera,
while most of the remaining components are concealed inside the ceiling. Only the compact
dome and the thin decorative ring that conceals the screws can be seen.
For these reasons, the D25M installed with the In-Ceiling Set is the preferred option for
most indoor spaces frequented by customers or the general public (e.g. hotels, restaurants,
banks, retail stores, public buildings, etc.).
The common use of suspended ceilings in commercial and public buildings is an additional
reason to place a preference on in-ceiling installation. The installation process is also
simplified, as the network cable may be laid without difficulty and only a 15 cm diameter
hole must be cut in the ceiling or ceiling component.
Before installing the MOBOTIX D25M (IT/Secure) on an indoor ceiling with the In-Ceiling
Set, you must prepare the network connection and drill a hole for the camera:
• Network connection: The network cable is fed through the ceiling directly above
the camera. When preparing the installation, make sure that about 15 cm of cable
remains unused.
• Cut a hole for installation: The hole should have a diameter of 150 mm (see drilling
template at the end of the manual).

D25M Camera Manual: Installation
2.9 Network And Power Connection
2.9.1 Notes On Cable Lengths And Power Supply
• Power may only be supplied to the camera via its Ethernet connector. A MOBOTIX
Power Adapter or similar high-quality PoE product is recommended to provide the
power supply via the network cable:
– one camera: with the Network Power Adapter (MX-NPA-PoE)
– multiple cameras: with quality PoE products conforming to IEEE 802.3af
• The maximum length of the network cable for power supply over an Ethernet cable
is 100 m.
• Make sure that you only use switches or routers that support the 10/100 Mbps
Ethernet interface of the camera. Check for LED activity on the corresponding port of
the switch or router. When deploying several cameras, read the notes in Section 4.11,
«Operating Multiple Cameras» in the Software Manual.
• It is highly recommend to use uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) to provide back
up power.
• If you are using IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet network components to supply
power to MOBOTIX cameras, make sure, if possible, 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, thus extending the
life of these components.
Caution
Connection of additional
devices with more than
1 W (via MxBus/USB):
Max. ambient temperature +50°C /+122°F
Appliances with a maximum total power consumption of four watts may be connected to the MxBus connector and USB connector if power is supplied to the
camera using PoE class 3. If PoE Class 2 is used, the power consumption of all
the connected appliances should not exceed one watt!
For information on changing the PoE class, see Section 2.9.8, «Variable PoE».
2.9.2 Connecting the D25M to the Network Using a Patch Cable
Using a patch cable and an MX-Overvoltage-Protection-Box or MX-NPA-Box offers the
following advantages:
• Quick installation/deinstallation
• No shortening of cable even when installing/deinstalling several times
• Hose-proof/dust-proof connection in accordance with IP65
• Additional protection against overvoltages of up to 4 kV when using the
MX-Overvoltage-Protection-Box.

Installing And Starting MxEasy
Download the current version of MxEasy from the MOBOTIX website (www.mobotix.com >
Support > Software Downloads in the MxEasy area). Double-click the shortcut for the
program or the program file.
Finding Cameras
When you start MxEasy for the first time on a computer, the MxEasy Assistant automatically
begins to search for MOBOTIX cameras and displays all cameras found in a list. The
camera list will be updated automatically as soon as new MOBOTIX cameras are connected to, or removed from the network.
MxEasy also automatically monitors and displays the operating status of all cameras.
Cameras that are not on the same subnet as the computer will get a differently colored
symbol than the cameras that are on the same subnet. Likewise, the cameras that have
an unknown password or for which no user name/password combination has been specified in MxEasy will be displayed in a different color. The following section «Reconfiguring
Network Addresses Of Cameras» contains information about cameras with the status
Invalid network (for example, all new MOBOTIX cameras with factory settings).

D25M Camera Manual: Operating the Camera
Reconfiguring Network Addresses Of Cameras
*Bonjour: automatic
recognition of network
services in IP networks
Using Bonjour*, MxEasy finds not only cameras on the same network as your computer,
but also MOBOTIX cameras located in other subnets (the Invalid Network status). In such a
case, you would not be able to establish any connection to cameras in a different network
or subnet (without going into much further detail regarding 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. MxEasy can
automatically configure such a camera so that it is ”integrated” into your existing network.
To do so, you only have to select the affected camera in the list and then click on Continue.
After a security prompt, a new dialog box for configuring the selected camera is displayed.
If your computer automatically obtains its IP address from a DHCP server, then this is
certainly the best choice for that specific camera and most likely for all other cameras that
have been found in a different subnet (Get IP address automatically option).
If you have assigned a static IP address to your computer, you will probably want to assign
static IP addresses (issued by your system administrator) to every camera (the Use this
IP address option). Normally, you enter the same configuration used for the network
settings of your computer.
When you click on OK, the selected cameras are automatically reconfigured and they are
located in the same subnet as the computer.
Integrating And Displaying Cameras
After a camera has been reconfigured, it has the status Accessible and can be integrated
into MxEasy. The MxEasy Assistant then displays the Define Integration Mode in MxEasy
dialog box.

3.2.5 Starting The Camera With The Factory IP Address
If your network has a DHCP server, you can start the MOBOTIX camera with DHCP support.
The camera automatically obtains an IP address from the DHCP server and announces the
new network data. Please note that this announcement can only be heard if the camera
is connected to an external speaker.
1. If the camera is powered on, disconnect the power supply by unplugging the corresponding cables and then reconnect the power supply.
2. Wait until both LEDs light up simultaneously for the first time.
3. Press the R key within the next four seconds and hold it down (if you need to
try again, go back to Step 1). Use a suitable device to press a key (a ball-point pen,
for example).
Press the “R” key
4. After about 30 to 45 seconds, the camera emits a double sound (”boing boing”).
The camera has finished booting and can now be used (e.g., MxEasy, MxControlCenter,
MOBOTIX App, web browser).
Notes
Starting the camera with an automatic IP address (DHCP) is only temporary. The
network configuration of the camera can be permanently set to DHCP under Admin
Menu > Ethernet Interface.
In case of an error,
the camera uses its
last IP address
Make sure that the network has a functioning DHCP server when starting the camera
with DHCP support. If this is not the case, the camera cannot obtain a valid IP address
and will use its last IP address.
You should also make sure that the cameras always obtain the same IP addresses by
permanently assigning the MAC addresses of the cameras to the desired IP addresses.

3.2.6 Starting The Camera With An Automatic IP Address (DHCP)
Under certain circumstances, you may have to reset the camera to its factory IP address.
This could be the case, for example, if the IP address has been lost or the camera does
not respond to the last known IP address. Proceed as follows to start up the camera with
its factory IP address:
1. If the camera is powered on, disconnect the power supply by unplugging the corresponding cables and then reconnect the power supply.
2. Wait until both LEDs light up simultaneously for the first time.
3. Press the L key within the next four seconds and hold it down (if you need to
try again, go back to Step 1). Use a suitable device to press a key (a ball-point pen,
for example).
Press the “L” key
4. After about 30 to 45 seconds, the camera emits a single sound (“boing”).
The camera has finished booting and can now be used (e.g., MxEasy, MxControlCenter,
MOBOTIX App, web browser).
Notes
If you use the camera’s L key to load the factory network configuration, this configuration is not automatically saved in the camera’s flash memory. When the camera
is next rebooted without using the 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.
As opposed to resetting the camera using Admin Menu > Reset configuration to
factory defaults, the user information will not be reset if the camera is booted using
the factory IP address.

3.3 Adjusting Lens Focus And Correcting Lens Distortion
3.3.1 Aiming and Adjusting The Lens
Make sure that you see the live image of the camera on the monitor of your computer or
laptop. Now adjust the lens mount until you see the desired image area on your monitor:
• Remove the camera dome. Use the supplied plastic foil
or a cotton cloth to remove the dome by turning it in a
counter-clockwise direction. With IT/Secure models, you
may have to remove the outer shell first.
• Loosen the toothed ring slightly by turning it in a counterclockwise direction using the supplied hook wrench. In
addition, loosen the two Allen screws on both sides of the
lens mount slightly by turning them in a counter-clockwise
direction using the supplied Allen wrench.
Loosen the ring and screws until you are still able to pan
and rotate the internal part of the camera with the lens
without much force but not so far that the lens is unable
to move on its own.
• Now aim the camera by rotating and panning the lens
mount (Note: the MicroSD card slot must point downward
for the camera’s live image to be displayed properly). Never
use force when adjusting the direction of the camera, as
this could damage the camera beyond repair.
© MOBOTIX AG • Security-Vision-Systems • Made in Germany
www.mobotix.com • sales@mobotix.com
Adjusting Lens Focus And Correcting Lens Distortion
• Once the camera has been aimed, tighten the Allen screws
at both sides of the lens mount (in a clockwise direction)
and the toothed ring (in a clockwise direction) with the
supplied hook wrench. Do not use excessive force when
doing so as this may damage the camera.
• Adjustment: Release the lock ring of the lens and adjust
the image focus by rotating the lens in its socket. Check the image on the computer
monitor. Make sure that you tighten the lock ring again once you are finished. To
avoid damaging the lens mount, never turn the lens too far or with force.
Caution (only for 160 mm Telephoto lens)
Image Focus: Due to the lens effect of the dome, the focus of the 160 mm Telephoto
lens shifts slightly once the dome has been mounted. Before mounting the dome,
the Telephoto lens should be rotated by 90°-120° in a counter-clockwise direction
(against the direction in which the lens is screwed). Make sure that you check the
focus of the live image with the dome installed and re-adjust the lens, if required.
• Mount the dome. Use the supplied foil or a lint-free cotton cloth to insert the dome into its seat and turn it in a
clockwise direction. Once again, check the focus of the
camera image on a computer monitor.
If required, gently clean the front of the lens using a soft
cotton cloth before installing the dome. Do not apply excessive pressure to the surface of the glass when cleaning the
lens.
5. Attach the rubber seal (IT/Secure models only): Place
the rubber seal with the groove around the edge of the
black mounting ring of the camera.
6. Attach the outer shell (IT/Secure models only): Replace
the outer shell and screw all four Allen screws tight using
the supplied Allen wrench. Ensure that the rubber seal
is properly positioned.

3.3.2 Correcting Lens Distortion (L25 Only)
If you are using a D25M with the L25 82° wide-angle lens, the image, particularly the
edges, may be slightly distorted due to the extreme angle of the lens.
You can suppress this effect using software (e.g. in the browser) so that a new and appropriately corrected image can be displayed live. A side effect of this correction, however,
is that a cushion shape appears around the edges of the image.
To hide this cushion effect, you simply have to zoom in on the image slightly. Although
this reduces the size of the captured area, the image is almost distortion-free compared
to the original.
© MOBOTIX AG • Security-Vision-Systems • Made in Germany
www.mobotix.com • sales@mobotix.com
Adjusting Lens Focus And Correcting Lens Distortion
Since activated lens distortion correction requires additional processing power, you should
consider disabling it in situations where it is not really necessary. You will only notice a
minimal distortion of the image, especially if you use the zoom. However, the maximum
frames rate for high resolution may be reduced, which means you have to choose between
maximum distortion correction or maximum frame rate.
Zoom without distortion correction
Corrected image (zoom)
We recommend activating lens distortion correction, especially for applications with a low
frame rate and non-zoomed images (e.g. when using the D25M as a webcam). However,
images can usually be corrected at a later point in time when searching recorded images.
This saves on processing power during recording and increases the frame rate. The more
you zoom in on the image, the less distorted the image should appear.
Activate/Deactivate Lens Distortion Correction In The Browser
To activate this option, first specify the lens you are using in the Admin Menu > Camera
Administration > Lens Configuration dialog (this setting is saved until the camera is reset
to its default configuration). Select the L25 (4.0 mm) option from the Lens Type Selection
field and then click Apply followed by Restart.
Now select the Lens Distortion Correction option in the Display Mode Quick Control panel.
An automatically corrected (live) image is displayed that can be panned, tilted or zoomed.
Switching to the Full Image option will deactivate the automatic distortion correction function.

clicking Set and Close. You can now use the scroll wheel to zoom + (roll upwards) or
zoom - (roll downwards).
Operation Using USB Joystick
A standard USB joystick can drastically facilitate vPTZ operation for the user – in the
browser, in MxEasy and in the MxControlCenter (however, MxCC is also equipped with a
virtual joystick that can be operated using the mouse). Please first install the joystick on
the PC according to the manufacturer's instructions.
In order to use a USB joystick in the browser, make sure that you have a PC with a Windows
operating system and the latest version of Internet Explorer and that the ActiveX mode
in the camera software (browser) is activated:
• Select Browser in the Quick
Control.
• In the dropdown to the right of
to Browser, select the ActiveX
option. The USB joystick can
then be used until the browser
is closed.
• If you want to store this setting
permanently, open Admin

Manuals.
3.4.2 Full Image Recording
It is possible to record a full image, regardless of the live image stream that is being
displayed. This ensures that the recording always contains the full image of the lens used,
even though the operator may have used the vPTZ features to zoom into the image in
order to examine a specific detail.
Live image
Stored Full Image
Analysis in the stored full image
This means that you can use the vPTZ features in VGA resolution to pan, tilt and zoom the live
image while the camera is e.g. recording full images at 1 fps in MEGA or QXGA resolution.
When using MxEasy or MxControlCenter, the recorded full images may be prepared
for the user using vPTZ functions (e.g. panning and zooming in on an image detail such
as a doorway).
If full image storage is not activated, only the last displayed live image will be saved
(save what is seen). The main benefit of live image storage is to ensure that the full power
of the camera processor is used for live image correction and maximum image rates.
The main advantage of full image storage lies in the special functionality of the D25M, in
that it can always maintain availability of a maximum size (full) image for later investigation,
despite vPTZ actions carried out on the live image. The mechanical limitations of motor-driven
PTZ cameras mean that they simply cannot provide this unique advantage to the user!

Virtual PTZ And Full Image Recording
Activate/Deactivate Full Image Recording In The Browser
To configure this feature, open the Setup Menu > Event Control > Recording dialog and
activate or deactivate the “Full Image Recording” option.
Notes
Post-event search in the full image: If you are using Full Image Recording on D25M
cameras, you should use at least MEGA resolution when storing. This will facilitate later
searches in MxControlCenter or MxEasy. The advanced distortion correction features
require this function to deliver satisfactory image quality.
Full Image Recording On: Due to its increased computing power, full image recording reduces the data rate of the live image stream, which may drop by about 10 to 30
percent. It is therefore recommended to reduce the image rate for storage as much as
possible, so as to affect the live image stream as little as possible.
Full Image Recording Off: The event that triggered a video motion (VideoMotion VM)
window may not be in the recorded sequences as the window was not displayed at
the time.

3.5 MicroSD Card Recording
3.5.1 Introduction
Flash memory
devices: more robust
than hard drives
Flash-based storage devices (MicroSD cards, USB sticks and solid-state
drives) do not contain any moving parts as compared to the commonly
used hard drives. Flash-based storage devices are compact and
highly resistant to moisture and vibrations. They feature low energy
consumption and they do not lose any data in the event of a power
failure, meaning that they are ideal for use with MOBOTIX cameras.
Number Of Write/Delete Cycles Per Flash Storage Cell
The number of write/delete cycles of every storage cell of a flash
device is limited. The controller of the flash device automatically
detects individual flash cells that are no longer functioning. The contents of the faulty cell
will then be rebuilt using a checksum and will be moved to a properly working spare cell.
The faulty storage cell will be marked as ”bad” and will no longer be used. No data is
lost in this process.
In addition, MOBOTIX cameras constantly monitor activated flash storage devices. MOBOTIX
has developed a technology to test the wear of the flash device by logging the number of
write/delete cycles (patent pending). The flash memory wear is automatically displayed
in the status bar in the live camera image but it can also be viewed at any time in the
Admin Menu > Camera Status dialog box.
Conservative Memory Usage Thanks To MOBOTIX MxFFS File System
MxFFS formatting of the MicroSD card means that MOBOTIX camera software will use
the flash device as evenly as possible, thus allowing for the maximum possible number
of write/delete cycles. This also means that all storage cells of the flash device will be
written and deleted with the same frequency, if possible. MOBOTIX technology increases
the life of the flash device considerably and also improves the security and the reliability
of the storage process.
Storage Requirements And Life Expectancy Of MicroSD Cards
The life expectancy of a MicroSD card increases proportionally to the storage capacity,
since the camera software will execute fewer write/delete cycles on each storage cell.
The first deletion will begin once the SD card has been filled to capacity (first full cycle).

Caution
The MicroSD card’s service life depends on production quality and frequency of
use. Set the type of recording (event-controlled or continuous recording, frame rate,
resolution) according to your specific requirements.
We recommend changing the pre-installed, high-quality 4 GB MicroSD card once a
year if you have it constantly set to continuous recording.
Monitoring The Cell Wear Of Flash Storage Devices (Patent Pending)
MOBOTIX uses its own technology for this
purpose and has a pending patent. You can
view the flash wear in the status bar of the live
image or by opening Admin Menu > Camera
Status. In addition, the camera can also send
a warning message (for example, via e-mail)
as soon as a critical error is detected when
data is written to the SD card (Admin Menu >
Error Notification Function.). The MicroSD card
can then be replaced to ensure that any existing data is not lost.

3.5.2 Formatting The MicroSD Card
Format SD card:
Admin Menu > Storage
on External File Server
/ Flash Device
Before a MOBOTIX camera can store image and video sequences on a MicroSD card, the
card needs to be formatted as MxFFS (MicroSD cards supplied by MOBOTIX are already
MxFFS-formatted). The following steps are necessary to format a storage device (Admin
Menu > Storage on External File Server / Flash Device):
1. Make sure that there is a MicroSD card in the card slot of the MOBOTIX camera.
2. Click Format in the SD Memory Card
line.
3. Note down the characters shown in the
Encryption password field or enter your
own password. Next, click OK.
The Secure deletion –
Slow option takes several
hours. You can also use
suitable applications on
Windows, Linux/UNIX
and Mac OS X systems
to repartition and safely
erase the SD card.
Note: The Secure deletion – Slow option
will ensure that any data on the MicroSD
card is overwritten completely so that
the data cannot be recovered in any
way. However, keep in mind that this
kind of safe formatting takes considerably more time.
4. In the next dialog box, enter the user
name and the password of a user of the
admins group and click OK to confirm.
The MOBOTIX camera now starts formatting the card. It takes 5 to 12 minutes to format an 8 GB MicroSD card
if the Secure deletion – Slow option
is disabled. If Secure deletion – Slow
is enabled, this may take anywhere
between 3 and 14 hours.
Once the formatting has been completed, you can activate the MicroSD card for recording
(see next section).
Caution
Make sure that you always wait until the formatting process has been completed
before accessing the camera again. If the Secure deletion – Slow option is disabled,
this usually takes just a few minutes. You can only access the MicroSD card once
MxFFS formatting has been completed.
Formatting with the Secure deletion – Slow option enabled takes several hours. You
can also use suitable applications on Windows, Linux/UNIX and Mac OS X systems
to repartition and safely erase the MicroSD card.

3.5.3 Activating MicroSD Card Recording
Follow these steps to activate the recording to a MicroSD card that has already been
MxFFS-formatted (Admin Menu > Storage on External File Server / Flash Device):
1. Make sure that there is a MicroSD card in the card slot of the MOBOTIX camera.
2. Make sure that the MicroSD card is formatted in MxFFS format.
3. Activate the SD Flash Card option.
4. Click on Set and then Close to store the configuration.
5. Reboot the MOBOTIX camera (Admin Menu > Reboot Camera).
Once the camera has rebooted, make sure that the camera displays the FR REC symbols
in its live image. If this is the case, the camera uses the MicroSD card as recording target.
If not, you must activate the recording (see below).
Activating The Recording
If the FR REC symbols are not visible in the live image after rebooting, you need to activate
the recording using one of the following methods:
• In the web browser: Automatic activation by clicking on the Arm & Record softbutton.
Confirm this in the Easy Dialog by clicking on the Yes button.
• In the web browser: Manual activation via the Quick Control Recording > Recording
on or in Setup Menu > Recording.
• MxEasy: It is possible to activate the recording based on the time or date using the
Alarm Planner of MxEasy (see MxEasy User Manual).
Encryption And Authentication
All video data stored on the MicroSD card is encrypted to ensure security at all times.
The password for this is defined during the card’s formatting procedure and needs to
be entered for authentication whenever the recordings are accessed (see next section).

• In MxControlCenter: Play back the recorded video sequences with audio by accessing
the MicroSD card in the MOBOTIX camera via the camera or with a direct access to
the MicroSD card via a card reader connected to the computer. Access the card by
setting the MicroSD card’s drive/volume as a directory in MxControlCenter.
If the recordings stored on the MicroSD card were encrypted, you need to enter the
password used for the encryption before you can access the data. If this is the case, both
MxControlCenter and MxEasy will provide a dialog box for this purpose.
Caution
When using the MicroSD card from one MOBOTIX camera in another MOBOTIX
camera, you need to make sure that the time on the original camera is in sync with
the new camera. We recommend using automatic time synchronization via a time
server (Admin Menu > Date and Time).
3.5.5 Deactivating Card Recording
Follow these steps to deactivate the memory on a MicroSD card (Admin Menu > Storage
on External File Server / Flash Device):
1. Activate the None option.
2. Click on the Set button at the bottom of the dialog box and then on Close.
3. Reboot the MOBOTIX camera (Admin Menu > Reboot Camera).
Once the camera has rebooted, make sure that the symbol FR REC is no longer visible in
the bottom right-hand corner of the live image. You can now safely remove the MicroSD
card from the camera (see Section 2.8, «Replacing The MicroSD Card»).

MicroSD Card Recording
Caution
A MicroSD card may only be removed from the camera after you have deactivated the recording to MicroSD card and rebooted the camera. Failing to do so
may lead to data loss!
Removing connected flash storage devices from the camera without properly deactivating them may lead to data loss and/or destroy certain areas of the storage device.
This is limited to 4 MB of lost data per incident due to MxFFS formatting.
3.5.6 Using A MicroSD Card In A Different MOBOTIX Camera
A MicroSD card containing recorded video data from a MOBOTIX camera can be inserted
into any MicroSD card-enabled MOBOTIX camera. Once a MicroSD card recording has
been activated (requires a reboot), the ”new” MOBOTIX camera automatically synchronizes with the card and resumes recording. No data is lost in this process. Make sure
that you deactivate MicroSD card recording before removing the card and then reboot
the MOBOTIX camera.
If the MicroSD card’s contents are encrypted, you need to enter the same password in
the ”new” camera in the Admin Menu > Storage on External File Server / Flash Device
dialog box. Otherwise, the camera cannot access the MicroSD card.
3.5.7 Limitations On Warranty When Using Flash Storage Media
MOBOTIX will not assume any responsibility for flash storage devices (for example, MicroSD
cards or connected USB storage devices) delivered with or integrated into MOBOTIX cameras. The same applies to damage to flash storage devices or damage resulting from the
use of devices that are not supplied by MOBOTIX.

D25M Camera Manual: Operating the Camera
3.6 Configuration In The Browser
3.6.1 Overview
A MOBOTIX camera can be completely configured using a JavaScript-enabled browser
on all common operating systems (such as Windows, Linux, Apple, etc.). The camera
provides a HTML-based user interface for this purpose. The camera executes the changes
you make to the camera configuration via HTTP commands using programs and scripts of
the embedded software. The settings are stored in the camera’s flash memory.
This section contains an overview of the basic browser settings of the MOBOTIX camera
as well as further configuration options. Detailed information on the software functions is
provided in the camera’s online help.

Configuration In The Browser
129/140
Basic Settings
• Administering the camera: You can modify the camera configuration in the Admin
Menu or the Setup Menu.
User name: admin
password: meinsm
– Admin Menu: This menu contains the basic configuration dialog boxes of the
camera (for example, passwords, interfaces, software updates).
– Setup Menu: This menu contains the dialog boxes for configuring the image,
event and recording parameters. Some of these settings can be changed using
the corresponding Quick Controls in the live view.
• Resetting changes: If you would like to reset some larger changes in one dialog
box without resetting the complete configuration, you can use the Default button
at the bottom of the dialog box to reset only this dialog box’s settings to the factory
defaults. If you would like to reset all image settings, you can do so using the Manage
Settings > Restore Image Settings Quick Control in the live image of the camera.
• Storing changes permanently: Once you have finished configuring the camera,
you should always store the settings in the camera’s permanent memory. You can
do so in each dialog box (clicking on the Set button at the bottom of each dialog
box will temporarily implement the change; when you click Close, you will be asked
to store the complete configuration in the camera’s permanent memory) or in the
Admin Menu (Admin Menu > Store current configuration into flash memory).
The Configuration section of the Admin Menu provides more functions for storing,
copying and managing camera settings. For more information on this topic, refer to
the online help for the specific dialog boxes.
Make sure to
permanently store
changed parameters!
• Time tasks and time synchronization: Apart from a multitude of possibilities for
controlling the camera using time (time tables, holiday and vacation, scheduled
tasks, etc.), the camera can also synchronize its internal clock. This allows you to
manually synchronize the camera with a computer or automatically using a time
server or another MOBOTIX camera. The camera can use either NTP time servers
or Time Protocol servers. For more information on this topic, refer to the online help
for the specific dialog boxes.
Automatic time
synchronization using
a time server
• The “More” and “Less” buttons: When opening some of the camera dialog boxes,
the camera only shows the most important parameters. These dialog boxes have
a More button in the bottom right-hand corner. Click it to display additional options.
If all options are displayed, click on the Less button to hide the additional options.

D25M Camera Manual: Operating the Camera
3.6.2 General Browser Settings
• Run the Quick Installation: After booting a new MOBOTIX camera, accessing the
administration menu for the first time will automatically start the Quick Installation
assistant (Admin Menu button). The Quick Installation assistant helps you in setting
the most important parameters of the camera. For security reasons, you should set
your own administrator password and disable public access to the camera.
• Disable public access: Guest users are only allowed to access the Guest screen of
the camera without entering a password. If this is not required, you should deactivate public access (Admin Menu > Quick Installation or Admin Menu > Users
and Passwords).
• Add users and assign access rights: Similar to a computer operating system, you
can add users and user groups and assign the desired rights (Admin Menu > Users
and Passwords, Admin Menu > Group Access Control Lists (ACL)). This approach
allows individual access rights to be assigned or denied to camera-specific features
based on the user groups.
• Deactivate the automatic reboot: In its factory state, every MOBOTIX camera will
automatically reboot at 3:36 a.m. every day. All images in the camera’s storage buffer will be deleted during this reboot. Images stored on external file servers, internal
flash storage, or SD cards will NOT be affected by this reboot. Make sure that you
deactivate the automatic reboot if this is not desired (Admin Menu > Time Tasks).
• Optimize the image settings: The factory image settings of MOBOTIX cameras
deliver excellent images for most application scenarios and should therefore not
be changed. If you do wish to make changes, your changes should be minor and
gradual. You should, however, set an image program according to the application
scenario of the camera. Image programs provide a quick and simple method for
adjusting the camera to the application scenario as they perform several configuration steps at once (Image Programs Quick Control).
• Set the resolution of the live image: By default, all MOBOTIX cameras are factoryset to an image resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. You can select the desired resolution
using the Resolution Quick Control.
• Adjust the exposure: The automatic exposure control of the MOBOTIX camera uses
individually configurable exposure windows to determine the best image exposure.
Open the Exposure Control Quick Control and select a predefined set of exposure
windows. If required, you can also define custom exposure windows (Setup Menu >
Exposure Settings).
• Activate event control and recording: By default, the MOBOTIX camera’s event
control is disabled. Click on the Arm & Record button to activate event control. This
will activate motion detection and recording. Cameras with integrated flash memory
(MOBOTIX R models and models with an SD card) will automatically use the flash
memory to store image and video data (recording target). If desired, you can set
additional events and adjust the settings of the recording and storage parameters
(Setup Menu > Event Settings, Setup Menu > Recording and Admin Menu >
Recording to External File Server / Flash Device).

Configuration In The Browser
• Set up actions/messaging: Upon detecting an event, the MOBOTIX camera can trigger alarms. These alarms can be adjusted to your needs and you can assign them
to a specific event: playing back an alarm sound on the camera speaker, showing
the visual alarm in the camera live image, sending an e-mail or network message
with the alarm image, placing a phone call, uploading an alarm image to an FTP
server, switching a signal output line of the camera (for example, for switching on
the lights/opening a door).
For the settings, see Setup Menu > Action Group Overview. The actions to be performed are defined and used in these action groups in the form of “action profiles.”
The different action profiles can also be defined in the following areas: Admin Menu
in the Hardware Configuration (profiles for signal output), Transfer Profiles (FTP, e-mail,
network messages) and Sound and VoIP Telephony (sound profiles, VoIP profiles). For
more information, refer to the online help for the Action Group Overview dialog box.
• Activate shock detector: The D25M is also equipped with a shock detector as standard (for all IT and Secure models). If, for example, the camera’s housing receives a
blow, it automatically registers it and sends a notification via a network message or
telephone call. A general advantage is that MOBOTIX cameras are extremely tough
because of the absence of mechanical moving parts. This allows them to stay fully
operational when they are subject to strong vibrations. Open the Setup Menu >
Event Control > Environment Events > Edit dialog box if you would like to activate
the shock detector (and any other sensors).

D25M Camera Manual: Operating the Camera
3.7 Additional Notes
3.7.1 Weatherproof Qualities
The MOBOTIX D25M IT/Secure models have been certified weatherproof according to IP65
(absolutely dust-proof and resistant to water jets) and can also be wall-mounted outdoors.
The MOBOTIX D25M Basic has attained a protection class of IP54.
3.7.2 Password For The Administration Menu
Accessing the administration menu of the camera (Admin Menu button) is only possible
after entering a user name and password.
• Factory default user name is admin
• Factory default password is meinsm
The Quick Installation assistant automatically appears when the administration menu is
accessed for the first time. It provides an easy method to adjust the basic camera settings to the current application scenario. For security reasons, it is highly recommended to
change the default administrator password after the camera has been properly configured.
Enter the user name and password exactly as shown above. Note that all entries are
case-sensitive.
Caution
Make sure that you store information on user names and passwords in a secure
place. If you lose the administrator password and cannot access the Administration
menu, the password can only be reset at the factory. This service is subject to a
service charge!
3.7.3 Permanently Deactivating The Microphone
The microphone can be
irreversibly deactivated!
Deactivating a camera’s microphone may be necessary in order to protect the privacy of
persons at a workplace or for other reasons. You can permanently and irreversibly deactivate the microphone in the Admin Menu > Loudspeaker and Microphone dialog box.
3.7.4 Starting The Camera With The Factory IP Address
If the camera’s IP address is not known, you can start the camera with its factory IP
address. Section 3.2.5, «Starting The Camera With The Factory IP Address» describes this
procedure in more detail.

133/140
Additional Notes
3.7.5 Resetting The Camera To Factory Settings
All settings of the MOBOTIX camera can be permanently reset to the factory default settings.
This makes sense if, for example, you have 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.
You can reset specific parts of the
configuration
Note
All defined users are deleted and the admin password is reset to the factory default
when you reset the camera using Admin Menu > Reset. If you want to maintain the
existing users, use the method described in Section 3.2.5, «Starting The Camera With
The Factory IP Address».
3.7.6 Activating Event Control And Motion Detection
In its default configuration, the camera’s event control and video motion detection features
are not enabled. In order to activate event-controlled recording, open Setup Menu >
General Event Settings and activate the Arming switch. Another method is to click on the
Arm & Record softbutton in the browser’s user interface. The camera displays the motion
detection window in the live image (dotted frame in the center) and the camera automatically stores images as soon as the motion detection window detects movements.
3.7.7 Deactivating Text And Logo Options
As camera arming is deactivated in the camera’s 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, the text at the bottom of the live image (event, action, messaging and recording
symbols) will also appear.
You can deactivate the status bar at the bottom of the live image and the text bar in the
top left-hand corner by setting Text Display in the Setup Menu > Text & Display Settings
dialog box to Off. Setting Text Display to Date and Time will only display the time stamp
in the live image. To hide the logo in the live image, open Admin Menu > Logo Profiles
and set Logo Display to Deactivated.
3.7.8 Deactivating The Camera Reboot
By factory default, the MOBOTIX camera automatically reboots once a week between
3 a.m. and 4 a.m. The reason for this is that in some rare cases, external influences (for
example, radiation at high altitudes) can sometimes 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. If desired, you can deactivate the
automatic reboot of the camera in the Admin Menu > Time Tasks dialog box.

3.7.9 Browser
Current Internet browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, Opera,
etc.) with enabled JavaScript can display the camera’s live images with their standard settings.
3.7.10Cleaning The Camera And Lens
If the lens becomes dirty during the installation process, clean the lens using a lint-free cotton
cloth. Make sure that the lens is still in focus after cleaning and adjust its focus if required.
Cleaning The Dome:
• In order to protect the dome from being scratched and from getting dirty, only handle
the dome using a soft cotton cloth or the protective plastic of the camera's shipping box.
• You should clean the dome at regular intervals. Always use a soft, lint-free cotton
cloth for this purpose.
• If the dirt is more persistent, add a mild alcohol-free detergent without abrasive
particles.
• Make sure you instruct cleaning personnel on how to clean the camera.
3.7.11 Legal Notes
§
Legal aspects of video and sound recording: You must comply with all data protection
regulations for video and sound monitoring when using MOBOTIX products. Depending
on national laws and the installation location of the D25M, the recording of video and
sound data may be subject to special documentation or it may be prohibited. All users of
MOBOTIX products are therefore required to familiarize themselves with all valid regulations and comply with these laws. MOBOTIX AG is not liable for any illegal use of its
products.
3.7.12Safety Warnings

Additional Notes
Electrical surges: MOBOTIX cameras are protected against the effects of 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 to ensure proper protection against lightning, since this also protects the building and the whole network infrastructure.
Max. power consumption of attached extension modules: The power consumption of
all attached MxBus modules must not exceed 2.5 W. When attaching modules to the
MxBus connector and the USB connector, the power consumption of all attached modules must not exceed 3 W, if the camera is powered by PoE class 3. If PoE class 2 is
used, the power consumption of all attached modules must not exceed 1 W!
Never touch the lens: Due to the high performance of the D25M, the area of the image
sensor can get quite hot, especially when the ambient temperature is also high. This
does not affect the proper functioning of the camera in any way. For this reason, the
product must not be installed within the reach of persons without the dome.
Only exchange sensor module when powered off: Make sure the power supply to the
camera is disconnected before installing or replacing sensor modules.
Network security: MOBOTIX products include all of the necessary configuration options
for operation in Ethernet networks in compliance with data protection laws. The operator
is responsible for the data protection concept across the entire system. The basic settings
required to prevent misuse can be configured in the software and are password-protected.
This prevents unauthorized parties from accessing these settings.
