New York – January 30, 2013 – MOBOTIX Corp., an industry-leading provider of high-resolution, network-based surveillance systems, today announced that TOTUS Solutions™, a manufacturer of outdoor lighting-based security platforms, has joined the MOBOTIX Global TechnologyPartner Network. Participation in the program ensures seamless integration of MOBOTIX IP surveillance devices with TOTUS technologies.
The Global Partner Network is designed to help MOBOTIX partners take advantage of the business opportunities within the fast growing IP video surveillance market. Partners benefit from direct contact with MOBOTIX for sales and marketing tools, as well as professional training, technical support and the latest developments in IP video technology and home automation from MOBOTIX.
TOTUS' Security Platforms use LED lighting as a deterrence mechanism in commercial and government applications. The TOTUS technology incorporates MOBOTIX megapixel IP video surveillance, multi-day media storage and communications options to provide reactive capabilities and evidentiary support.
Robust IP video surveillance capabilities are provided by MOBOTIX Q24 Hemispheric Cameras, which deliver 360-degree views and feature a compact, weatherproof design. The MOBOTIX Q24 Hemispheric Camera is an ultra-compact, IP network dome camera with a special hemispheric lens. Whenmounted on the ceiling, the camera is capable of providing a complete 360-degree all-around view or when mounted on the wall, provides a 180-degree panoramic view. The Q24s high image quality is achieved through the use of a 3.1 megapixel sensor. An integrated Micro SD/SD card provides up to 80 hours of continuous recording with audio. Furthermore, the MOBOTIX Q24 includes MxControlCenter, a professional video management system with event search, image processing, lens distortion correction, PTZ support and more, at no cost.
The TOTUS Security Platforms also benefit from video analytics built-in to the Q24 to trigger lighting control and audio functionalities. When a MOBOTIX camera detects motion according to user-defined alarm parameters, the solution flashes lights, plays pre-recorded messages and sound, and emails video clips to predefined users. Since the MOBOTIX cameras feature edge-based recording, all data is processed within the camera to lower network bandwidth, which maximizes the use of virtual PTZ, video analytics and 360-degree hemispheric technology with panoramic view.

These purpose-built platforms transform passive surveillance into a deterrent to provide an all-in-one solution for a vast number of market opportunities,” said Gregory G. Williams, President and CEO, TOTUS Solutions. “As a leader in the IP surveillance space, MOBOTIX is an ideal partner to help further improve upon the robust capabilities of our products.”
