Overview of the Axis P1204

Axis Solution Gold Partner

The Axis P1204 and P1214 are indoor mini IP cameras designed for flexible, non-invasive monitoring. The tiny lens module, which is separated from the main camera body, can be concealed in tight spaces for unobtrusive surveillance and features an 8m cable, allowing the camera body to be mounted remotely.

Despite its exceptionally small size the P1204 produces HD 720p resolution video with clear, defined detail. The internal recording system captures video to a MicroSD memory card or to network storage and is compatible with the free Axis Companion software.

Please note: This camera does not come with a power supply. Should you require a Power over Ethernet midspan, please select one from the options above.
