Reducing motion false alarms

August 2013 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Mobotix has unveiled the MxActivitySensor, a technology that registers the travelling movement of people and objects, while dismissing redundant changes and movement in the scene. This reduces the number of false alarms. Through the development of the MxActivitySensor, Mobotix has re-invented a method for intelligent video motion detection.

“MxActivitySensor is a new technology that is literally five years ahead of existing video motion detection systems,” says Mobotix founder and CEO, Dr. Ralf Hinkel. “The biggest problem with motion detection software today is the massive amount of false alarms. The MxActivitySensor reduces these false alarms by over 90%, with almost no configuration time.”

In this way, the MxActivitySensor also saves management time for the user. “Finding the real events in traditional motion detection software is like finding a needle in a haystack as every movement has triggered an alarm,” continues Hinkel. “With the MxActivitySensor the user can concentrate on, and find real events fast and efficiently. We think it is a game changer and as normal with Mobotix software and applications, it is for free.”

Revolutionises activity detection

Intelligent motion detection like that offered by the MxActivitySensor is possible thanks to the decentralised system from Mobotix. “The MxActivitySensor is directly integrated in the camera, meaning analysis can take place there, too. Only relevant events trigger an alarm, which is sent out over the network. In this way, the users will save a tremendous amount of bandwidth, especially when there are many cameras installed in the network,” says Hinkel. When a human or vehicle moves through the camera’s field of view, MxActivitySensor triggers the camera to initiate an alarm action, such as recording, phone call, e-mail, SMS etc. The MxActivitySensor ignores all other changes in the environment such as snow, rain, wind, light, moving clouds and trees. This intelligent management of motion detection is truly unique for the market.

Almost no configuration time

MxActivitySensor, once enabled and left at the default settings, is still more accurate than video motion detection, in most situations. This presents big savings in configuration time as compared with traditional video motion detection. “The hardest thing to do is to make the complicated easy and that is the whole idea with this piece of software. With the MxActivitySensor there is no need for specialists to install, manage and analyse the system on site. The power to do all this and to get the desired results is now available for all users,” concludes Hinkel.
