Overview of the Axis M5054

This mini PTZ network camera by Axis can be unobtrusively ceiling mounted to provide unobtrusive, HD monitoring of indoor locations. Regions of interest can be examined in detail using the camera’s pan/tilt functionality and 5x optical zoom. In addition, this cost-effective unit features edge storage, as well as Axis’ Zipstream technology and can be easily installed via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).

The palm-sized model delivers high-quality HD 720p resolution at up to 25 frames per second (fps) and pan/tilt functionality enables users to navigate across wide scenes. 5x optical zooming allows areas of interest to be investigated in real-time, and quick close-ups of the original image can be examined using the unit’s 10x digital zoom.

The camera’s built-in microphone allows activity occurring close to the camera to be heard in live view and audio recordings can be listened to in playback. A range of audio triggered alerts can be used alongside video motion detection alarms to notify users of possible incidents via email notification. These alarms can also be set to trigger specific actions, such as moving to a preset position or start recording to the on-board MicroSD card (not included) – ensuring no vital activity is missed.

Users can install the Axis Companion application to provide a simple video management solution for up to 16 camera channels. This free software offers remote access to live views as well as playback of recordings and is available as a PC client or mobile application.

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). In addition, Axis' Zipstream technology is included to help lower bandwidth and storage requirements. It does this by analysing and optimising the video stream in real time, recording interesting detail in high quality, whilst filtering other areas out.

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