Mobotix M15 Spotted in “The Martian”

We pride ourselves on our installations, customer service, and steadfast support. A component of this is what we install, and one of our most popular CCTV solutions is the Mobotix M15 external camera. True to the original, weatherproof, robust, shock and impact proof.

But spaceproof? Such a question would never have crossed my mind until I decided to watch “The Martian” earlier this week, and had to double take when I’m sure I spotted no other than a trusty M15 screwed into the airlock wall.

Nothing says more to the testament of the cameras reliability than to be the choice of NASA. Unfortunately, the astronaut pictured is actually in the process of planting a bomb, I’ll say no more (spoiler alert!) but I’ll leave it up to Mobotix to figure out whether their cameras are bomb-proof, because I’m certainly not up for testing that as an engineer.

The Mobotix M15, good enough for space stations, good enough for your business.
