It will maintain a consistent smooth CCTV video feed with EIS and effectively monitor hallways with its corridor mode . Detect motion and classify objects including humans and vehicles with precise accuracy thanks to the preinstalled Axis Object Analytics (AOA) with deep learning.

Video Analytics

Minimise false alarms and only focus on events that really need attention with the granular level object classification provided by Axis Object Analytics. With deep learning the technology accurately distinguishes accurately between events and objects (humans and vehicles) in various analytic scenarios such as object in area, line crossing and area occupancy, up to 10 of which can be run simultaneously. Set alarms to activate upon user-defined events for greater scene awareness and to reduce response times to incidents. Search through live and recorded video forensically using metadata for rapid footage retrieval for quick investigation.

This camera also supports other Axis and third-party applications, enabling greater functionality for the camera to meet more distinct demands.
