Document Information




Thomas Dieregsweiler








These Release Notes contain a technical description of the most important changes in the software for the MOBOTIX MOVE network cameras.

Important Notices

For 1st time support of Mx-Message System after FW upgrades, the camera requires a factory reset or temporary change of Camera IP-address. This is required to change the original MOVE camera Broadcast address to to match the MOBOTIX IoT camera broadcast address. In case this already was performed with a previous FW-upgrade, this action is not needed repeatedly, as Broadcast address remains persistent in the camera and can be verified in the Camera-Info (Web-GUI).
