High performance, professional day and night network camera

The AXIS 221 Network Camera is a high performance camera for round-the-clock surveillance over IP networks. The camera provides high quality images under all lighting conditions, which makes it an ideal solution for indoor/outdoor applications, e.g. surveillance of buildings, roads, parking areas, garages, railway stations and airports.

Day & Night functionality

   

The AXIS 221 features an automatic, removable infrared-cut filter, which enables the camera to provide color video when there is sufficient light, and black/white video in dark conditions. It uses a high performance Pentax lens and a progressive scan CCD image sensor that enables moving objects to be presented without distortion.

Power over Ethernet

Advanced event management

The AXIS 221 also supports a number of advanced features that give the camera increased flexibility and capabilities, including Power over Ethernet, video motion detection, pre- and post-alarm buffer, and inputs/outputs for connecting external devices such as door sensors and relays to activate light or close doors.

Product review: Network Computing, United Kingdom, July 2005

"Its latest 221 Network Camera takes surveillance to the next level as not only can it function in any lighting condition, but it also offers simultaneous, Motion-JPEG and MPEG-4 playback with support for Power over Ethernet, with one of the fastest frame rates currently available."
