MOBOTIX HUB - New Plug IN - Sync und Cloud Improvements

In the upcoming Plug In, the new MOBOTIX Sync will be embedded deeper into the MOBOTIX HUB. For this purpose, the MOBOTIX Plug In will be extended by additional layout grid elements. Similar to the Thermal Dashboard, it will be possible to create a layout from different elements.

With the new MOBOTIX HUB Plug In, the user will be able to display the following elements in the grid:

  • Camera streams (as usual)

  • Temperature graphs showing the temperature curves of the MOBOTIX Thermal Cameras

  • MOBOTIX Sync Grafana elements like:**

    • Bar graphs, e.g. showing the course of the traffic volume
    • Curve diagrams, e.g. showing the increase in traffic flow
    • Pie charts showing e.g. the detected car brands
    • MOBOTIX Sync lists of detected number plates
  • As an additional element, live cameras from the MOBOTIX Cloud can now be embedded in the camera layout.

Layout with status message with which “external” system the connection is established.

Operating options:

  • In the playback view, a click on a recognised number in the list (click on date / time) triggers the jump in the player to the corresponding event time.

  • Double-clicking on an element in Grafana or Cloud will enlarge the element and double-clicking again will minimise the element.

Thermal Graph Element:

  • Clicking on a specific time on the temperature graph highlights the area in the image.

  • Double-clicking on a specific time on the temperature graph jumps to the corresponding time in the recording. (assumes that the corresponding camera is included in the layout)

Double-clicking in the border area of the temperature graph (outside the X-Y axes) maximises the view and double-clicking again reduces the view again!

The relevant configuration steps for Sync to integrate the Grafana dashboards in the layout:

In MOBOTIX Sync in the Dashboards section, the individual dashboards can be created.

Each dashboard created will then be available for selection in the Layout Setup of the Desk Client.

With “Create” - Dashboard and “Add New Panel” a new panel can be created.

In the menu, individual data and form can be determined how the dashboard should appear.

IMPORTANT: The assigned name is displayed as a selection in the drop-down field in the setp of the Layout.

Create Desk Client layout with Grafana Dashboard:

In the page area, the new elements MOBOTIX CLOUD and MOBOTIX SYNC are now available for selection as layout elements.
After placing the elements in the layout, the SNYC instance can be selected (requires that these have been created in the Management Client beforehand with the general access data such as URL and user account.

Select the corresponding Grafana Dashboard:

It is important to adjust the MOBOTIX SYNC configuration as described in the follow report:

Management Client Setting for SYNC:

Management Client Setting for Cloud:

IMPORTANT: There are two account types in the Cloud: the Reseller Account and the Sub Account. Only the sub account contains cameras and must be stored in the Management Client Setup!
The user can add more sub accounts as shown in the example screenshot:


MOBOTIX HUB Des Client Setup - Adding Cloud Cameras from a Cloud Sub Account
First, select the Cloud Sub Account. In this case, the sub account created in the Management Client is labelled “Demo 1”.
In the next drop-down field, the cameras created in the sub account appear for selection. (The drop-down field can be empty if no cameras have been added to the cloud sub account yet - this must be done in the cloud first).

Example if no cameras have been added to the sub account yet:
