Overview of the Axis P1265

Call for availability prior to ordering.

Part of the Axis P12 series, this modular IP camera consists of the Axis P12 Mk II main unit and a separate Axis FA1125 pinhole sensor to deliver non-invasive CCTV surveillance in HD resolution. Easily installed via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), the camera also offers support for Zipstream technology, MicroSD card storage and remote access via the free Axis Companion application.

Measuring less than 3cm in height, the ultra-compact sensor unit delivers high-quality HD 1080p resolution at up to 25 frames per second (fps). Designed for unobtrusive installation in areas with very limited space, users are able to fit the sensor behind a metal, glass or plastic panel that is up to 5cm thick - using the included bracket. For flexible installation options, the slim main unit can also be placed up to 8m away from the sensor using the detachable cable.

Wide dynamic range (WDR) – Forensic Capture technology improves images captured by the camera by compensating for bright light and shadows in a scene to ensure individuals and objects are clearly visible throughout the image. In addition, Axis Corridor Format is included and helps to maximise the area of interest in narrow scenes by vertically orientating the video stream.

The free Axis Companion application can be installed and offers a simple video management solution for up to 16 IP cameras. Available as a PC client or mobile application for iOS and android devices, this handy software offers remote access to live views as well as playback of recordings.

A variety of video motion detection alarms can be configured to trigger edge recording and alert users of activity via email notification. Users can also receive these alerts directly to their mobile device using the Axis Companion mobile app.

Axis Zipstream technology helps to lower bandwidth and storage levels by an average of up to 50%. It optimises the video stream in real-time, allowing important details to be retained while unnecessary data is removed. Installation is simplified with support for PoE and edge storage provides a backup if the network fails - recording files onto the MicroSD card (not included).

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