Overview of the Axis M2026-LE Mk II

This outdoor-ready bullet IP camera is capable of delivering 4MP/Quad HD 1440p resolution (4 x 720p) images round the clock; with true day/night recording and up to 15m of infrared night-vision.

Part of the affordable Axis M20 series, it features an ultra-compact design for unobtrusive surveillance and can be easily installed using Power-over-Ethernet (PoE). Additional features include support for H.265 compression format, Axis Zipstream technology and local recording to Micro-SD card.

The camera offers a viewing angle of 130°, enabling users to monitor wide areas with a single unit. Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) – Dynamic Capture is supported and combines several images, each with different exposures, to capture both bright and dark areas of the scene. In addition, Axis Corridor Format helps to maximise the area of interest in narrow scenes by vertically orientating the video stream. Multi-view streaming allows up to 2 specific areas within the camera’s field of view to be cropped and streamed separately for live viewing or recording - a helpful tool when closely monitoring regions of interest.

Axis Companion software is supported and provides an easy to use video management solution for up to 16 IP cameras. The free software allows users to record and playback video footage from the camera’s SD card (not included) for an affordable, remote monitoring solution. Axis Companion is available as a PC client and mobile application.

Camera-based video motion detection alarms are configurable and help to alert users of activity via a choice of notification methods including email. When using the Axis Companion mobile application, these motion detection alarms can also be set to trigger recording to the on-board MicroSD card (not included).

The unit features a spacious back box for secure cable management and support for PoE reduces cabling to help simplify installation. Axis' Zipstream technology is built in, lowering bandwidth and storage requirements by an average of up to 50%. This advanced technology analyses the video stream in real-time, ensuring important details in the image are retained and unnecessary data can be removed.

Please note: there is no power supply included with this unit. It is power over ethernet capable.

An alternative model is available in a black colour option.
