Measuring only 20mm in diameter, the lens module of the Axis P1214 is extremely compact, designed to provide non-invasive surveillance in indoor locations. The module can be recessed into walls and vertical surfaces so that only the lens is visible, capturing HD 720p video without impacting the aesthetic feel of the space.
