This advanced network camera from Axis, with powerful optical zooming, delivers smooth HD 1080p resolution at up to 60 frames per second (fps) - 24-hours a day. The unit's integrated infrared (IR) LEDs help to enhance night vision at a range of up to 80m, whilst a vandal-resistant and IP67-rated casing allows the camera to be safely deployed in exposed locations. Additional features include Axis' Lightfinder technology, edge storage and simplified installation via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).

32x optical zooming allows the user to ger a closer look at on-going activity within the scene and also examine areas of interest in real-time. In addition, the camera's varifocal lens offers horizontal views up to 60° - enabling optimum scene coverage to be set during installation.

Imaging technologies such as Forensic WDR allows details in scenes with bright and dark areas to be viewed clearly, whilst Axis Lightfinder technology supports the capture of full colour images - even in extreme levels of low light. Built-in IR LEDs provide illumination up to 30m in wide field of view or up to 80m in full tele view, and Axis' Optimised IR technology ensures an evenly illuminated image by automatically adapting the angle of illumination to the zoom level set. Additionally, Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) technology is also included to help reduce the effects of camera movement from wind and vibrations.

Various video motion detection alarms are configurable to help provide reliable and accurate security monitoring. These alarms can also be set to trigger recording to the MicroSD card (not included) and notify users of activity via notifications such as email. There is also the ability to connect an external microphone through the audio I/O port, allowing activity occurring close to the camera to be recorded. This unit is also preinstalled with Axis Guard Suite analytics such as Motion Guard and Fence Guard for a proactive approach to video surveillance.

Axis' Zipstream technology is included to help lower bandwidth and storage levels by optimising the video stream in real-time - removing unnecessary data and allowing important details to be retained. In addition, PoE support simplifies the installation process by delivering both power and network connectivity over a single cable.

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