The FLEXIDOME IP indoor 5000 HD IR D/N PoE IP Dome Camera from Bosch features a 1/2.7” CMOS sensor that allows it to capture images up to 1952 x 1092. The 2MP HD indoor dome camera features a 3 to 10mm lens With true day/night capability, this camera is capable of capturing color images in illumination as low as 0.24 lux and in b/w up to 0.05 lux. This d/n camera also features 10 IR LEDs that allows capturing images in complete darkness up to 50’.

The varifocal lens allows you to choose the coverage area to best suit your application. Using the proprietary pan/tilt/rotation mechanism, installers can select the exact field of view. The automatic zoom/focus lens wizard makes it easy for an installer to accurately zoom and focus the camera for both day and night operation. The wizard is activated from the PC or from the on-board camera push-button making it easy to choose the workflow that suits best.

Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction

The camera uses Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction which actively analyzes the contents of a scene and reduces noise artifacts accordingly. The low-noise image and the efficient H.264 compression technology provide clear images while reducing bandwidth and storage. This results in reduced-bandwidth streams that still retain high image quality and smooth motion. The camera provides the most usable image possible by cleverly optimizing the detail-to-bandwidth ratio.

Area-Based Encoding

Area-based encoding also reduces bandwidth usage. Compression parameters for up to eight user-definable regions can be set. This allows uninteresting regions to be highly compressed, leaving more bandwidth for important parts of the scene.

Multiple Streams

The multi-streaming feature delivers various H.264 streams together with an M‑JPEG stream. These streams facilitate bandwidth-efficient viewing and recording as well as integration with third-party video management systems. Depending on the resolution and frame rate selected for the first stream, the second stream provides a copy of the first stream or a lower resolution stream. The third stream uses the I-frames of the first stream for recording; the fourth stream shows a JPEG image at a maximum of 10 Mb/s.

Regions of Interest and E-PTZ

Regions of Interest (ROI) can be user defined. The remote E-PTZ (Electronic Pan, Tilt and Zoom) controls allow you to select specific areas of the parent image. These regions produce separate streams for remote viewing and recording. These streams, together with the main stream, allow the operator to separately monitor the most interesting part of a scene while still retaining situational awareness.

Built-in Microphone, Two-Way Audio and Audio Alarm

The camera has a built-in microphone to allow operators to listen in on the monitored area. Two-way audio allows the operator to communicate with visitors or intruders via an external audio line input and output. Audio detection can be used to generate an alarm if needed. If required by local laws, the microphone can be permanently blocked via a secure license key.
A speaker is required for two-way audio communication (sold separately).

Tamper and Motion Detection

A wide range of configuration options is available for alarms signaling camera tampering. A built-in algorithm for detecting movement in the video can also be used for alarm signaling. Alarms can be set up to trigger an e-mail or SMS notification so you are always aware of abnormal events.

Storage Management

Recording management can be controlled by the Bosch Video Recording Manager (VRM) or the camera can use iSCSI targets directly without any recording software.

Edge Recording

The microSD card slot supports up to 2TB of storage capacity. A microSD card can be used for local alarm recording. Pre-alarm recording in RAM reduces recording bandwidth on the network, or - if microSD card recording is used - extends the effective life of the storage medium.
Memory card sold separately.

Cloud-Based Services

The camera supports time-based or alarm-based JPEG posting to four different accounts. These accounts can address FTP servers or cloud-based storage facilities. Video clips or JPEG images can also be exported to these accounts.

Easy Installation

Power for the camera can be supplied via a Power-over-Ethernet compliant network cable connection. With this configuration, only a single cable connection is required to view, power, and control the camera. Using PoE makes installation easier and more cost effective, as cameras do not require a local power source. The camera can also be supplied with power from +12 VDC power supplies. The camera also supports Auto-MDIX that allows the use of straight or crossover cables.

True Day/Night Switching

The camera incorporates mechanical filter technology for vivid daytime color and exceptional night-time imaging while maintaining sharp focus under all lighting conditions. The camera also features 10 IR LEDs for night vision range of up to 50'.

Hybrid Mode

An analog video output enables the camera to operate in hybrid mode. This mode provides simultaneous high resolution HD video streaming and an analog video output via an SMB connector. The hybrid functionality offers an easy migration path from legacy CCTV to a modern IP-based system.

Access Security

Password protection with three levels and 802.1x authentication is supported. To secure Web browser access, use HTTPS with a SSL certificate stored in the camera. The video and audio communication channels can be independently AES encrypted with 128-bit keys by installing the optional encryption site license.

Complete Viewing Software

The camera's features are accessible via a web browser, with the Bosch Video Management System, with the free-of-charge Bosch Video Client or Video Security Client, with the video security mobile app, or via third-party software.

Video Security App

The Bosch video security mobile App allows access to HD surveillance images allowing you to view live images from any location. The app is designed to offer control over the camera, from panning and tilting to zoom and focus functions. This app, together with the separately available Bosch transcoder, will allow you to fully utilize the dynamic transcoding features so you can play back images even over low-bandwidth connections.

System Integration

The camera conforms to the ONVIF Profile S specification. Compliance with this standard guarantees interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer. Third-party integrators can easily access the internal feature set of the camera for integration into large projects.
