Microphones

For listening and learning

Microphones from Axis let you add audio-detection capabilities to your surveillance solutions. For example, they let you hear what’s going on in a scene. They also make audio-based analytics like scream detection and gunshot detection possible. We offer microphones that can be installed inside cameras, other devices or mounts. We also offer a range of high-performance microphones that you can place up to 100 (approx. 328 ft.) away from your cameras or other devices when you need more flexibility.
