This PTZ IP camera from Axis is capable of producing smooth HD 1080p video footage at full frame rate. It’s IK09 and IP66-rated housing, combined with support for true day/night recording, enables round-the-clock monitoring of indoor or outdoor areas.
In addition, regions of interest can be examined in detail using the camera’s full pan/tilt functionality and 10x optical zoom. This cost-effective dome also features edge storage and can be easily installed via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).
Using the camera’s endless 360° pan and variable pan/tilt movements, users are able to precisely navigate across a wide area - particularly helpful when closely monitoring a person or incident. For improved imaging in difficult lighting conditions, wide dynamic range (WDR) – Forensic Capture lowers noise levels and increases the image signal to ensure all details are visible in both dark and bright areas.
Configurable video motion detection alarms can be set to trigger MicroSD card recording and also inform users of activity via email notification. These alarms can also be used in combination with Axis’ Advanced Gatekeeper so that if motion is detected, the camera will automatically pan and zoom to a preset position. Integrated alarm and audio I/O ports support the connection of external devices – helping to enhance alarm signalling or enable features such as two-way audio.
The free Axis Companion application can be easily installed and offers a simple video management solution for up to 16 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.
With support for PoE, the camera can receive power and network connectivity over a single cable - resulting in a cost-effective installation solution. Axis’ Zipstream technology is also included and lowers bandwidth and storage requirements by an average of up to 50%, ensuring that important details in the image are retained in the video stream, while unnecessary data can be removed.
Please note: this camera does not come with a power supply, please select from the accessories tab if required.
