Overview of 0281-003 Axis 209FD

The Axis 209FD is designed for unobtrusive indoor surveillance in places such as shops or hotel receptions. The unobtrusive design (measuring just 4 cm in height) allows for flexible installation, with all parts of the camera designed to be as flat as possible while remaining simple to install. The design of the camera also allows the lens to be tilted, offering greater flexibility when the camera is installed.

The camera's progressive scan technology produces sharp images without blurring, and the 209FD also has Power-over-Ethernet functionality. This means that only one cable needs to run from the network to the camera for both data and power - it does not require a separate power cable. This speeds up and simplifies installation and makes reconfiguration easier.

A live feed from the 209FD can be viewed using standard web browsers such as Internet Explorer and Safari - no additional software is required due to the camera's built-in web server. For situations where recording is a priority, the included Axis Camera Station One software provides a complete 1-channel solution for playback, viewing and recording out of the box. The camera's built-in motion detection technology can be configured to automatically send images via e-mail, HTTP or FTP when the camera's alarm is triggered.

A megapixel version is available.
