THE SMARTMOUNT
BELL CAMERA

A single fisheye camera provides what others can’t: a full intersection view, including the center where cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians actually cross paths.

Industry Pioneers

Horizon to Horizon Vision Tracking

The SMARTMOUNT Bell Camera delivers the only field-tested, single-intersection sensor empowering tracking through the entire intersection, including the center where vehicles and vulnerable road users cross. The horizon to horizon approach offers highly accurate turn counts, unmatched situational awareness, views and functionality from the center of the intersection, and unobstructed incident management views. The camera’s virtual pan-tilt-zoom enables users to set up multiple views and adjust those anytime as needed without impacting performance. The aesthetically pleasing, environmentally conducive bell shape of the camera isn’t just for looks. The iconic Bell Camera shape protects the lens by mitigating sun glare and adverse weather conditions while decreasing annual maintenance.

SMARTMOUNT Bell standardizes installations, providing even better results from the world’s most accurate intersection solution. SMARTMOUNT Bell’s hitch-ball inspired design gives you Flexibility to level your Bell Camera in any terrain with ease. The Junction Box is self-grounding and aesthetically pleasing; the custom pole conveniently ships in two pieces and a quick assembly delivers ideal height. The CAT5e is premeasured for a perfect fit with preinstalled M-12, military grade connections between the Bell Camera and Junction Box. With SMARTMOUNT, technicians decrease bucket truck time and simplify installation by 15%.

With more than 200 million hours of field operations from across the globe, GRIDSMART is the world’s only proven single-camera solution.
