FLEXIDOME panoramic 5100i cameras improve situational awareness with audio AI

June 2023

panoramic camera

The FLEXIDOME panoramic 5100i cameras are the first cameras enabled for Intelligent Audio Analytics, helping security staff see with sound to understand the situation quickly and appropriately respond to an incident.

Intelligent Audio Analytics detects and classifies sounds and identifies the approximate direction of the source. This new audio AI is trained on field data sets in various environments and background noises to detect sound signatures of gunshots, smoke alarms (T3), and carbon monoxide alarms (T4) while ignoring false positives, like slamming car doors or banging carts. This precise detection enables security guards to confirm the alarm visually and act proactively. The cameras offer 360-degree coverage without blind spots, an integrated microphone array, and three MEMS acoustic sensors that can capture sound from any direction to help guide an operator to the area of interest. The first Intelligent Audio Analytics software licenses available for the cameras are the Gunshot Detector and T3/T4 (Smoke and Carbon monoxide alarm) Detector. Additional detectors are planned in the future firmware releases.

Like all Bosch cameras, the new panoramic cameras combine built-in AI with the Internet of Things (IoT), easily converting video data into valuable insights. Remote Portal fully supports these video cameras, enabling system integrators to remotely perform services such as changing configuration settings and installing firmware updates to ensure systems meet the highest reliability standards and support sustainable business practices.


24/7 Situational awareness

High-quality imaging with no blind spots covers large and uniquely shaped areas, while edge-based AI delivers insights to identify important objects or situations any time, day, or night.

Accurate and reliable sound detection

Improve situational awareness and strengthen security by pairing video with audio analytics. Precise detection of specific sound signatures while ignoring false positives enables security guards to confirm the alarm visually and act proactively.

Simple to install

Panoramic cameras are easy to install with a twist-and-click system and have adjustable imager rotation for versatile use.
