Axis Communications announces a new palm-sized p/t/z camera with wireless I/O connectivity for communication with other devices using Z-Wave Plus.
The Axis M5065 network camera features 5x optical zoom, autofocus and built-in analytics such as video motion detection, removed object detection and audio volume and scream detection.
Wireless I/O connectivity enables flexible system deployment that provide high-quality indoor security surveillance, allowing business owners to keep control of their premises and assets, according to the company.
With the camera’s wireless I/O connectivity, it is possible to use an on/off command to control up to six wirelessly connected devices supporting Z-Wave Plus.
“By introducing wireless I/O connectivity in a security context, we allow customers to set up an agile surveillance and security system to meet their individual business’ needs, without having to invest a large proportion of their budget on set-up fees,” says Kent Fransson, global product manager at Axis Communications. “For instance, they can use an Axis M5065 wirelessly connected to a door sensor to monitor or be alerted if someone opens a door to a cabinet with expensive goods. That is just one example of how a camera with wireless I/O connectivity could make security both easier and cost-effective and we see that it being used more broadly in the future.”
Axis also announced the following four wireless I/O compatible devices:
- Axis T8344 Power On/Off Plug
- Axis T8342 Door/Window Sensor
- Axis T8341 PIR Motion Sensor
- Axis T8343 Alert Button
