Inserting/Exchanging the SD Card
All camera models can use the integrated microSD card (SDXC) to record video data. In order to exchange the microSD card, please proceed as outlined
in the following instruction. For information on reliable SD cards, please see the MOBOTIX website www.mobotix.com > Support > MxMedia Library >
Planning in the document MicroSD Card Whitelist for MOBOTIX Cameras.
When replacing the SD card, make sure that recording has been deactivated in the browser (Admin Menu > Storage > Storage on External File Server /
Flash Device; activate recording again in the same dialog after exchanging the card).
1.Remove the SD Card
If a microSD card has been installed, gently press
with your finger as indicated by the arrow until
you hear a click. Then release the SD card. The
card is protruding slightly and can be easily
2.Insert the SD Card
Insert the microSD card and gently press with
your finger as indicated by the arrow until you
hear another click.
Make sure that the SD card is fully inserted.
Initial Operation of the D26
The initial operation starts with connecting the power supply (see section «Network and Power Connection, Additional Cables» in the D25 Camera Manual).
The first access follows the procedure described in the same manual in the «Initial Operation of the Camera» section. All other tasks require access to
the camera's user interface in the browser. Enter the camera’s IP address into the address bar of the browser.
1.Select the lens
Carefully turn the lens by hand (possibly with
a cloth, see Safety Warnings, "Never touch
the lens") in clockwise or counter-clockwise
direction until the red area of the focusing
aid is as small as possible.
Open the Admin Menu > Hardware Configuration > Lens Configuration dialog and select the
installed lens. This step is required to select the
proper special functions of the installed lens (e.g.,
for wide-angle lenses).
Once the focus is adjusted properly, deactivate
the focusing aid again (Focusing Aid quick
control, Disabled value).
2.Adjust the lens focus
Note: Due to the lens effect of the dome, the focus of the B237 tele lens is
shifting slightly once the dome has been mounted. Before mounting the
dome, the tele lens should be turned about 90° in counter-clockwise
direction (as seen from the lens' front). Make sure that you check the focus
of the live image in your browser with the dome installed and re-adjust
the lens, if required.
Remove the dome before proceeding.
Check the live image from the camera in the browser. Activate the focusing
aid in the browser (Focusing Aid quick control, Activated value).
3.Save the configuration
In the live image of the browser, select the Manage Settings quick control and set Store Entire Configuration as value. The camera stores the
configuration in the permanent camera memory so that the settings will
be applied at the next camera reboot.
Boot Options of the D26
By default, the camera starts as DHCP client and automatically tries to get
an IP address from a DHCP server. To start the camera in a mode different
from the default mode, you can activate the boot menu of the camera.

Important Notes
1.Safety Warnings
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.
Notes on Installing:
• This product must not be used in locations exposed to
the dangers of explosion.
• Make sure that you install this product as outlined in
Chapter 2, «Installation» of the corresponding manual.
A faulty installation can damage the camera!
• When installing this product, make sure that you are only
using genuine MOBOTIX parts and MOBOTIX connection
• Only install this product on suitable, solid materials that
provide for a sturdy installation of the fixing elements
2.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 D25, 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 applicable
regulations and to comply with these laws. MOBOTIX AG is not
liable for any illegal use of its products..
Electrical installation: Electrical systems and equipment may
only be installed, modified and maintained by a qualified
electrician or under the direction and supervision of a qualified
electrician in accordance with the applicable electrical guidelines. Make sure to properly set up all electrical connections.
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.
Electrical and electronic products contain many valuable
materials. For this reason, we recommend that you dispose
of MOBOTIX products at the end of their service life in accordance with all legal requirements and regulations (or deposit
these products at a municipal collection center). MOBOTIX
products must not be disposed of in household waste! If the
product contains a battery, please dispose of the battery separately (the corresponding product manuals contain specific
directions if the product contains a battery).
Never touch the lens: Due to the high performance of the
D25, 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.
MOBOTIX AG does not assume any responsibility for damages,
which are the result of improper use or failure to comply to the
manuals or the applicable rules and regulations. Our General
Terms and Conditions apply. You can download the current
version of the General Terms and Conditions from our website at www.mobotix.com by clicking on the COS link at the
bottom of every page.
Power off before opening the camera: Make sure the power
supply to the camera is disconnected before opening the camera housing (e.g., when inserting or exchanging lenses, lens
units and SD cards).
