Axis offers a large selection of network cameras, providing high-quality video solutions for any professional indoor or outdoor video surveillance application.

Fixed network cameras

A fixed network camera meets a variety of application needs, and its traditional camera design adds a deterring effect. The viewing direction is set once the camera is mounted. There are several models with a varifocal lens and/or exchangeable lenses for increased flexibility.

Fixed dome network cameras

A fixed dome network camera is a compact camera solution with a dome casing. Its main benefit lies in its discreet, non-obtrusive design, as well as in the fact that it is difficult to see in which direction the camera is pointing.

PTZ network cameras

PTZ cameras provide pan, tilt and optical zoom functions, enabling wide area coverage and great details when zooming in. All PTZ commands are sent over the same network cable as for video transmission. PTZ cameras can come in various form factors; the most common is a PTZ dome, which is ideal for use in discreet installations due to its design, and difficulty in seeing the camera’s viewing angle.

Thermal network cameras

Thermal network cameras create images based on heat that radiates from any object, vehicle or person. The cameras see through complete darkness and deliver images that allow operators to detect and act on suspicious activity around the clock in all conditions. Thermal network cameras are a perfect complement to any professional IP-surveillance system.

Covert network cameras

Covert cameras are designed to blend into the environment and be virtually impossible to discover. They can be placed at eye-level at entrances or integrated into things such as ATM machines for discreet or covert surveillance.

They can enable close-up shots for identification purposes or overview surveillance.
