Bosch Autodome IP 4000i Camera

Autodome IP 4000i Series Key Features



  • Perfect combination of style and technology for indoor installations that require high-quality imaging in a compact and aesthetic dome housing
  • Integrated 12x optical zoom that clearly identifies people (90 m / 295 ft maximum) without loss of any identification details (250 pixels/m).
  • Built-in Essential Video Analytics to trigger relevant alerts and quickly retrieve data


Autodome IP 4000i Series Description


The AUTODOME IP 4000i is a compact, indoor PTZ dome camera with a high-resolution 1080p60 HD sensor and a 12x optical zoom that allows operators to monitor wide scenes without losing any details. The camera’s aesthetic design and flexible mounting options allow unobtrusive surveillance of large halls, reception areas, or waiting areas that would otherwise require multiple cameras for effective surveillance.

Autodome IP 4000i Series Functions

Superior imaging performance

Built on the digital imaging technology from Bosch, the camera is carefully tuned to maintain accurate color reproduction and to deliver high-resolution HD video with flexibility to zoom in to small details of objects. Pre-programmed user modes

The camera comes with 3 pre-tuned scene modes to match various lighting conditions found in indoor scenes. Users can complete the configuration without going through multiple imaging settings.


  • Standard: For indoor fluorescent lighting.
  • Sodium-lighting: For scenarios where the video is captured under sunlight in the day or under sodium vapor lamp at night.
  • Vibrant: For enhanced contrast, sharpness, and saturation

H.265 high efficiency video coding

The camera is designed on the most efficient and powerful H.264 and H.265/HEVC encoding platform. The camera is capable to deliver high-quality and highresolution video with very low network load. With a doubling of encoding efficiency, H.265 is the new compression standard of choice for IP video surveillance systems.

Intelligent streaming

Smart encoding capabilities, together with Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction technology and analytics, make the bandwidth consumption drop to extremely low levels. Only relevant information in the scene, like motion, or objects found with the analytics, need to be encoded.

The camera is capable of quad streaming which allows the camera to deliver independent, configurable streams for live viewing, recording, or remote monitoring via constrained bandwidths. Recording and storage management Recording management can be controlled by the Bosch Video Recording Manager application, or the camera can use local storage and iSCSI targets directly without any recording software.

A memory card (SD, SDHC, or SDXC) up to 2 TB can be used for recording "at the edge" or for Automatic Network Replenishment (ANR) technology to improve the overall recording reliability. Pre-alarm recording in RAM reduces bandwidth consumption on the network and extends the effective life of the memory card.

Essential Video Analytics on the edge

The Essential Video Analytics application provides reliable video analytics for small and medium business, large retail stores, commercial buildings, and warehouses.

Advanced tasks like multiple line crossing, loitering, idle / removed object detection, crowd density estimation, occupancy and people counting are available for live alarming and forensic search. Object filters based on size, speed, direction, aspect ratio, and color can be defined.

A simplified calibration mode reduces installation time significantly, because you only need to enter the installation height once for each camera, independent of pre-positions.

After the camera is calibrated, the analytics engine can automatically classify objects as upright person, car, bike, or truck.

Data security

Special measures are necessary to ensure the highest level of security for device access and data transport. On initial setup, the camera is only accessible over secure channels and enforces a password. Web browser and viewing client access can be protected using HTTPS or other secure protocols that support state-of-the-art TLS 1.2 protocol with updated cipher suites including AES encryption with 256 bit keys. No software can be installed in the camera, and only authenticated firmware can be uploaded. A threelevel password protection with security

recommendations allows users to customize device access. Network and device access can be protected using 802.1x network authentication with EAP/TLS protocol. Superior protection from malicious attacks is guaranteed by the Embedded Login Firewall, on-board Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) support.

The advanced certificate handling offers:


  • Self-signed unique certificates automatically created when required
  • Client and server certificates for authentication
  • Client certificates for proof of authenticity
  • Certificates with encrypted private keys

System integration and ONVIF conformance

The camera conforms to the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) Profile S and Profile G specifications. For H.265 configuration the camera also supports Media Service 2 which is part of the future ONVIF Profile T. Compliance with these standards 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.

Superior privacy masking

The camera allows for a total of 24 individual privacy masks, with up to eight displayed in the same scene. These can be programmed with four corners each. Each mask changes size and shape smoothly and quickly, ensuring that the covered object cannot be seen.

PTZ drive and mechanism

The camera supports 256 pre-positions and two styles of Guard Tours: Pre-position and Record/Playback. The Pre-position tour has capability for up to 256 prepositions with a configurable dwell time between prepositions and can be customized as to the order and the frequency that each Pre-position is visited. The camera also provides support for two (2) recorded tours, which have a total duration of 15 minutes of movements. These are recorded macros of an operator’s movements, including pan, tilt, and zoom activities, and can be played back in a continuous manner.

Pan and tilt preset repeatability are accurate to within ±0.1 degrees to ensure that the correct scene is captured every time. The camera delivers maximum pan speed of 160 degrees per second and maximum tilt speed of 120 degrees per second. The camera is capable of manual speeds (pan and tilt) of 0.1 to 120 degrees per second. The camera provides a pan range of up to 360 degrees continuous rotation.

Sophisticated alarm responses

The camera supports advanced alarm control that uses sophisticated rules-based logic to determine how to manage alarms. In its most basic form, a “rule” could define which input(s) should activate which output(s). In a more complex form, inputs and outputs can be combined with pre-defined or user-specified commands to perform advanced camera functions.

Ease of installation and servicing

The camera has been designed for quick and easy installation, a key feature from Bosch IP video security products.

Bosch designed the camera with the knowledge that field cables and mounts are installed before the camera is mounted. The installation concept allows a single person to connect the cables directly to the camera without re-routing cables. The camera is easily secured to the mount with a single screw. The threestep installation process can save up to 5 minutes per camera installation compared to any conventional PTZ dome.

The camera models are available with a choice of inceiling or surface mount.

In-ceiling models are ideal for suspended ceilings, flush-in for an aesthetic look.

Surface-mount models are designed for easy installation on hard ceilings or can be pendantmounted on a wall or a pipe with the proper mounting hardware (sold separately).
