System overview

An Axis network video recording solution, including Axis network cameras and the AXIS 262 Network Video Recorder, provides you with a complete, one-stop-shopping solution for your surveillance and monitoring operations.

Example: Small shop

Use a standard IP network to install your complete surveillance system. The network cameras are connected directly to the IP network, eliminating numerous coaxial cable runs. The AXIS 262 Network Video Recorder provides local recording and video event handling for the shop. It records video streams at pre-defined rates according to a specific schedule or upon detection of motion. The PC-based point-of-sales system provides real-time surveillance.

  • One network camera monitors the cashier’s desk
  • One wireless camera is available for mobile surveillance
