This affordable, quality IP camera from Axis provides clear 5MP resolution video at up to 25 frames per second (fps). The unit’s varifocal lens provides wide horizontal viewing angles and allows optimum scene coverage to be set during installation. Other features include a built-in microphone for one-way audio recording, exchangeable CS mount lens and support for Axis' Lightfinder technology – enabling the capture of full colour images even in low light. Remote access is possible by downloading the free Axis Companion mobile application and support for PoE simplifies the installation process.


True day/night capability enables 24-hour monitoring of indoor scenes and the camera is equipped with a varifocal lens which provides wide horizontal views of up to 112°. The included CS mount lens allows users to easily exchange lenses to best fulfil their monitoring requirements (alternative lenses not included). One-way audio recording is also made possible through the unit’s integrated microphone, acting as a helpful complement to video when reviewing footage for investigation purposes.


A range of advanced imaging technologies are available that help the camera deliver clear video footage in difficult lighting conditions. Forensic Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology renders details evenly in scenes with high contrast areas, while Lightfinder technology captures full colour images in ambient light extremes. Scene awareness can be enhanced with the camera’s digital pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) controls – allowing the user to examine specific areas of the original image in greater detail. In addition, thanks to Axis Corridor Format, users can also vertically orientate the video stream to help maximise area coverage and reduce bandwidth when monitoring narrow scenes.

Video analytics

Configurable video motion detection alarms can be set to help alert users of activity via notifications such as email. These analytics can be further expanded through the utilisation of the Axis Camera Application Platform (ACAP) – enabling the installation of powerful analytics applications from Axis or third-party developers such as virtual tripwire, loitering alarm or other intrusion detection applications.

Video management

Recordings can be written to the on-board MicroSD card (not included) to provide a helpful backup of data if connection to the network is lost, helping to provide reliable, high-quality security monitoring. Furthermore, taking advantage of Axis Zipstream technology, recordings can be optimised to use less storage space, allowing for more days of recording to be retained on a single card. The M1137 also supports direct storage to network attached storage devices (NAS) for recording to any retention period. It is also compatible with leading video management software (VMS) platforms, including Axis Camera Station and Milestone XProtect. More simplistic video management is also possible by downloading the free Axis Companion mobile application.


With support for PoE, this high-quality camera is able to receive power and network connectivity over one cable for cost-effective, simple installation. An Axis T91A11 stand is also included with this unit - offering flexible mounting options to users.

Please note: this camera does not come with a power supply, please select from the accessories tab if required.
